                Zodiac Aerospace General Shareholders' Meeting

Plaisir, January 9, of  2013 - The combined  General Shareholders' Meeting  of 
the Zodiac Aerospace Group was held today at the headquarters of the  company. 
The quorum of the shareholders present or represented amounted to 65,246 %  of 
the voting rights^[1]. 

The General meeting approved all the resolutions submitted to its vote.
In particular, the shareholders' meeting approved of the distribution of  cash 
dividend of €1.40  for the  2011-2012 financial  year, against  €1.20 for  the 
previous year.
The terms of the Office of Directors  of Mrs Gilberte Lombard, and of the  FFP 
Company, represented by Mr. Robert Peugeot, were renewed.
During this  general meeting,  Olivier Zarrouati,  Chairman of  the  Executive 
Board, confirmed the company's growth prospects,  as a result of both  organic 
and external growth. 
At the beginning  of the  2012 /2013 financial  year, in  accordance with  its 
strategy which  consists in  being the  global  leader on  each of  its  niche 
markets, Zodiac Aerospace has completed three acquisitions for a total  amount 
of $160M:

  *In the field of in-flight entertainment, Zodiac Aerospace accelerates  its 
    development through  the acquisition  of American  company IMS,  the  4^th 
    global actor  in the  IFE sector,  and the  leader of  the IFE  "passenger 
    centric" segment. The company employs about 250 people and generated sales
    of over $70M. IMS developed RAVE,  a "Passenger Centric" IFE system  which 
    was notably selected by Lufthansa to equip its long-haul aircrafts. 

  *Northwest Aerospace  Technologies  (NAT)  strengthens  Zodiac  Aerospace's 
    offer in  the field  of cabin  retrofit. NAT  is an  engineering  services 
    company  specializing   in   transport  category   aircraft   modification 
    programmes. Based  in  Everett,  Washington, the  company  has  about  160 
    employees, of which 100 engineers, and generates sales of about $50M. This
    activity effectively complements those of Zodiac Aerospace in the field of
    cabin retrofit. 

  *Zodiac consolidates  its  world leadership  in  the field  of  electricity 
    through  the  acquisition  of  Innovative  Power  Solutions  (IPS),  which 
    manufactures  generators  and  converter  units  for  business  aircrafts, 
    helicopters and drones. Founded in 1999  and based in Eatondown, USA,  IPS 
    employs 60 people and generates sales of about $8M. This acquisition  will 
    complete and reinforce Zodiac Aerospace's leading position in the field of
    electricity on board aircraft, a field in which the Group was already  the 
    global leader in primary electrical  distribution and the supplier of  all 
    major new programmes.
