 FIMALAC : FIMALAC : Quaterly revenue - Three months ended December 31,2012 -
              Excellent performance by Fitch, with revenue 19,7%

Following the change in the Group's year-end, fiscal 2012 is a transition year
covering the 15-month period from October 1, 2011 to December 31, 2012.



This press release concerns revenue for the final quarter of the fiscal  year, 
covering the period from October 1 to December 31, 2012.

I) Fimalac's consolidated revenue

In line with  the applicable accounting  standards, Fitch is  no longer  fully 
consolidated by the Fimalac Group because it  is 50%-owned by the Group. As  a 
result, it no longer contributes to Fimalac's consolidated revenue, which  now 
corresponds primarily to the revenue  generated by Vega's entertainment  venue 
management business and to  the rental revenue derived  from the Group's  real 
estate assets.

Consolidated revenue for the three months from October 1 to December 31,  2012 
amounted to  €11.8 million  compared with  €9.4 million  for the  year-earlier 
period. As earlier reported, consolidated  revenue for the twelve months  from 
October 1,  2011 to  September 30,  2012 came  to €30.3  million versus  €23.8 
million for  the  comparable period  (i.e.  the Group's  prior  fiscal  year). 
Consequently, consolidated revenue for the fifteen months ended December  31, 
2012, corresponding  to the  transition  period following  the change  in  the 
Group's year-end, totaled €42.1 million.

II) Fitch's revenue

As previously reported, Fitch's revenue for the twelve months to September 30,
2012 amounted to €621.9 million ($805.5 million) versus €525.7 million ($732.7
million)  for  the  comparable  period,  representing  an  increase  of  12.7% 
like-for-like (based on a  comparable scope of  consolidation and at  constant 
exchange rates).

Fitch enjoyed an increasingly fast pace  of growth over the last quarters  and 
the year ended on an excellent performance, with revenue for the three  months 
to December 31, 2012  up 23.4% as reported  and 19.7% like-for-like at  €167.4 
million ($217.3 million) versus €135.7  million ($181.5 million) for the  same 
period of 2011.  Growth accelerated  across main  regions, with  like-for-like 
increases of 17.8%  in North  America, 35.3% in  Latin America,  18.7% in  the 
Asia-Pacific region and 18.6% in the Europe-Middle East-Africa (EMEA),  region 
that is now on a more similar growth trajectory to the other regions.

Revenue for the  15-month transition period  ended December 31,  2012 came  to 
€789.3 million ($1,022.8 million).

III) Fitch's acquisition of 7city

As announced on January 24, 2013,  Fitch Group has recently acquired 7city,  a 
leading provider  of  learning and  development  solutions for  the  financial 
services industry. Based  in London with  offices in New  York, Singapore  and 
Dubai, 7city has over 150 employees.

Fitch Group's strategy for this acquisition is to combine 7city with its Fitch
Training unit  to form  Fitch  7city Learning,  a  global leader  in  finance, 
financial analysis and credit risk analysis training. 

Fitch 7city  Learning  will be  a  third  business segment  for  Fitch  Group, 
alongside Fitch  Ratings  and Fitch  Solutions  (research and  analytics).  It 
represents a natural diversification,  targeting the same financial  community 
and leveraging Fitch's expertise and global footprint.

IV) Upcoming results announcements

Results for fiscal 2012 - covering the fifteen months ended December 31,  2012 
- will be published after the Board meeting scheduled for March 26, 2013.
