 Société de la Tour Eiffel : Société de la Tour Eiffel : 2012 annual turnover

                   Turnover and EPRA occupancy rate stable,
           4.5% increase in rental income on a like for like basis

The company's consolidated turnover for 2012 amounted to € 82.4M, compared  to 
€82.3M for 2011, of which rents represented respectively € 69.5M and €69.4M.
The stability of the turnover has been achieved despite approximately 110 M of
asset sales over the 2011-2012 period.

This rental outcome  results from  a combination  of rents  received on  newly 
delivered properties  (+€0.1M), net  relettings (+€0.6M)  and indexation  of 
passing rents (+€ 2.4M), set against property disposals during the said period
(- € 3M of rents).

On a like for like basis, rents increased by 4.5%.
