* The full-year figures reflect the sale  of ANAFI in May and the  acquisition 
of  MPH's  international  operations  managed  from  Dubai  in  February  2012 
(consolidated over 11 months).



Consolidated  revenue  for  the  year  ended  31  December  2012  rose   12.5% 
year-on-year to  €855.6 million,  for  organic growth  of 5.4%.  This  strong 
increase reflects a firm performance from operations in France and the Group's
expansion in  international  markets, which  for  the  second year  in  a  row 
delivered growth of close to 30%. The British pound's appreciation against the
euro had a positive impact on annual revenue, of €7.5 million.

In the fourth quarter, consolidated revenue was up 11.2% as reported and  6.4% 
at constant  scope  of consolidation.  In  France, Assystem  achieved  organic 
revenue growth  of 3.8%,  versus 0.7%  in third-quarter  2012, in  a  business 
environment that again varied widely among the segments. Quarterly revenue  in 
other countries increased by 11.2% on an organic basis and 28.1% as  reported, 
reflecting the contribution  of acquisitions  made in  2011 and  2012 and  the 
strong momentum of British operations.

REVENUE BY BUSINESS UNIT

COMPLEX INFRASTRUCTURE ENGINEERING (41% of full-year consolidated revenue)

Revenue from complex infrastructure engineering  rose 22% over the full  year, 
for organic growth of 3.3%.
The nuclear business (18.5% of Assystem's  total revenue) was up 7% thanks  to 
sustained business with France's  nuclear power stations  and new projects  in 
the United Kingdom.
Following the acquisition of MPH, Assystem has gained a position in the Oil  & 
Gas segment, where  it is expanding  and structuring its  offer, primarily  in 
international markets. During the  year, Total became one  of the Group's  top 
ten customers.

OUTSOURCED R&D (59% of full-year consolidated revenue)

Revenue from outsourced R&D operations rose  6.6% over the year, with a  mixed 
performance by segment and region.
Assystem benefited from strong growth of 16.5% across a full range of services
in the  aerospace business,  which accounted  for 36%  of the  company's  2012 
revenue.
The  automotive  segment  (14%  of  revenue)   was  hurt  in  France  by   the 
deterioration of  the PSA  Peugeot Citroën  account. International  operations 
(Germany and Romania in particular) grew during the year and accounted for 34%
of automotive segment revenue as of 31 December 2012.

WORKFORCE AND INVOICING RATE

Assystem had 10,745 employees at 31 December 2012, up by a net 1,044 since the
beginning of the year (553 at constant scope of consolidation), of which 142
during the fourth quarter.

The operational invoicing rate declined slightly  to 91.1% for the full  year, 
compared with 92.1% in 2011. In the fourth quarter, the operational  invoicing 
rate stood at 90.2%.

Assystem confirms its operating margin objective of between 7.0% and 7.5%  for 
full-year 2012.
