Frozen Foods business

In Q4 2012, during which the calendar was equivalent to that of Q4 2011, sales
declined by 6.7% from EUR90.8 million to EUR84.7 million. December sales were
disappointing and suffered, as in the rest of the industry, from an 
unfavourable economic environment, despite attractive offers in terms of price 
and quality.
Over all of 2012, sales declined by 4.3% to EUR304.9 million. The average
shopping basket rose by 1.6% to EUR49.1. The number of orders contracted by
5.9%, however, as it was more difficult to obtain repeat business from new
customers. New sales channels (internet and incoming calls) represented 4.6% of
sales, vs. 4.1% in 2011.

Groceries business

In Q4 2012, during which the calendar was equivalent to that of Q4 2011, sales
advanced by 7.1% to EUR6.0 million. Over all of 2012, sales also advanced by
7.1% to EUR22.2 million. The number of orders increased by 4.2%, while the
average shopping basket increased by 2.9% to EUR57.9. The "Groceries" product
line (Place du Marché brand) was extended to 11 new delivery locations. The
"Frozen foods" (Toupargel brand) and "Groceries" ranges are now offered jointly
by 37 locations, which cover the eastern half of France.
As part of the "Cap 2013" strategic plan, the Group will continue offering the
groceries product line to frozen foods customers in new regions of the country
over the next few months.
