The Group continues to pursue its asset concentration strategy, through both
arbitrage and development of pipeline projects (creation, refurbishment and
extension). 
In late September, the Group delivered the eastern extension of Espace Gramont
in Toulouse, thus completing refurbishment of this regional shopping center.
Espace Gramont now features more than 110 shops and medium-size stores. 
The next deliveries are scheduled for 2013:
 - Costières Sud Family Village(r) in Nîmes (H1 2013) with a current take-up 
rate of 83%,
 - Villeneuve-la-Garenne regional shopping center, featuring 185 shops and 
restaurants over 926,000 ft2 (86,000 m2) of leasable surface area to be  
delivered in late 2013. The take-up rate is nearly 80% a year before  
opening. 
1.2. Online retail 
In accordance with the strategy announced, Rue du Commerce continues to 
reorient its own-brand distribution model (mainly high-tech products) towards 
the general-merchandise centered marketplace ("Galerie Marchande"), which 
generates commissions on the revenues of merchants hosted on the site. 
In EUR million                       9/30/2012      9/30/2011      Change

Revenues, marketplace merchants         76.9           68.5          +12% 
Thanks to higher average commission rates, through enhancement of the product
mix, commissions collected through the marketplace outpaced revenues growth for
partner merchants.

2. HOUSING: Strong revenues growth

Percentage-of-completion revenues         664               538        +23.6%
(excl. tax) 
The 23.6% rise in percentage-of-completion revenues (EUR664 million excl. tax)
reflects market share gains achieved between 2008 and 2011.

Other French regions                            295     49%      350     42% 
Cogedim reported a 20% decline in reservations for Q3 2012. Reservations are on
track to recovery following a pronounced wait-and-see attitude early in the 
year due to election season in France (cumulated drop of 29% since early 2012). 
The overall decrease in reservations can also be attributed to a reduction in
sales to institutional investors compared to 2011 reservations, which were
characterized by a high volume of sales to medical establishments in the Paris
Region.

In a context of palpable uncertainty, Cogedim continues to manage its
commitments, as well as the volume of properties for sale. At the same time, it
maintains a pipeline sufficient to provide solutions suited to market
developments in terms of both products and volume. 
As a result of the current economic context that underscores the need for
affordable housing and household solvency, recent launches have focused on
entry-level and mid-scale products. These products accounted for half of
properties for sale at 9/30/2012. 
The stock of unsold completed apartments remained close to zero due to a
rigorous risk management policy. 
(5)First-time homeowners and private investors
(6)The pipeline is composed of revenues (incl. tax) of the properties for sale
plus the land portfolio, which represents all the land under option (generally
at purchaser's hand).

early July 2012.
