  ATOS : Atos Annual review of implementation of AFEP-MEDEF recommendations

     Annual review by the Board of Directors of the implementation of the
                          AFEP-MEDEF recommendations

Paris, 24 December 2011 - The Board of Atos met on 20 December to perform an
annual review of the implementation by the Company of the AFEP-MEDEF Code of
Corporate Governance for listed companies which includes recommendations on
the conditions of the compensation of senior corporate officers.

The Board wanted to ensure that the implementation of these principles is made
with regard to the consolidated version of the AFEP-MEDEF Code. The Board also
relied on the specifications published by the AMF ("Autorité des Marchés
Financiers" - French stock exchange regulator), notably in a report dated 11
October 2012.

Following the meeting, the Board of Atos considered that the system put in
place by the Company on corporate governance, including on the CEO's
compensation, is consistent with the AFEP-MEDEF recommendations, and applied
for each provision the "comply or explain" principle.

The detailed list for the Board assessment of the implementation of the
AFEP-MEDEF recommendations is available, in French, on Atos' website.
