                          HAVAS : HAVAS 2012 Revenue

P R E S S  R E L E A S E

Puteaux, February 19^th, 2013

2012 Revenue

Full year:

Revenue: €1,778 million
·Revenue growth: +8%
·Organic revenue growth:+2.1%
·Digital weight:26% of revenue

Fourth quarter:

Revenue: €521 million
·Revenue growth: +5.5%
·Organic revenue growth:+1.1%

Net New Business1 for the year: €1,675 million (+22% on 2011)



David Jones, Havas CEO, said:"2012 was a good year for the Group, considering
the global economy remains challenged especially in Europe. Our North  America 
business
strengthened in H2 posting good growth and our performance was strong in LATAM
and APAC.  The  momentum  at  Havas  is  excellent  following  the  successful 
rebranding of  our  divisions and  the  simplification of  our  structure.  We 
continue to see good new business wins and growth of digital, supported by the
unique co-location of our media, creative  and digital teams. The year  risks 
to be  another  challenging  one,  but these  factors,  along  with  promising 
activity in January 2013, give us confidence in Havas's ability to continue to
perform."






1. REVENUE

Consolidated Group revenue for 2012 was €1,778 million, an increase of 8% over
2011 on an unadjusted  basis. Revenue for  the 4^th quarter  of 2012 was  €521 
million compared  with  €492  million  for  the  equivalent  period  in  2011, 
representing growth of +5.5% on an unadjusted basis.

Organic growth for the  full year was  solid at +2.1%.  Q4 organic growth  was 
+1.1% largely impacted by a high baseline compared to Q4 2011.

Over the  year,  the Euro  depreciated  against  the US  dollar,  producing  a 
positive exchange  rate impact  of €41  million for  full year  2012 for  this 
currency only. The total exchange rate impact is €63 million. 

Digital and  social media  once again  increased their  contribution to  Group 
revenue as  the  Group  pressed  ahead with  its  strategy  of  putting  these 
businesses at the core  of all its activities  and agencies around the  world. 
With no  significant acquisition  over the  course of  the year,  digital  and 
social media accounted for 26% of total Group revenue in 2012.

Geographic distribution of organic revenue for the 2012 financial year was as
follows:

See table in attached release.




Europe:
Europe was  close to  flat  over the  full year  2012  with -0.4%  in  organic 
revenue. France also ended the year close to flat due to its creative agencies
and a strong performance from Havas Media. Havas Media's performance in Q4 was
largely impacted  by a  high base  in the  prior year's  quarter. By  sector, 
corporate and financial communications fell  back while BETC strengthened  its 
position as  the leading  French agency  as a  result of  significant  organic 
growth.
The UK outperformed the rest  of Europe in 2012, due  in large part to  recent 
wins by Havas Worldwide London, to BETC London (a startup launched just over a
year ago) and  to initial strong  performance at our  recently acquired  Havas 
Lynx agency, a digital specialist in healthcare communications.
2012 full year  revenue for the  rest of Europe  was down by  -1.2%. Q4 saw  a 
temporary downturn in media in Spain, Portugal and Switzerland, while  Belgium 
and Turkey remained strong.

North America: The region posted full year growth of +3.3%, proving remarkably
dynamic and  especially so  in Q4,  with growth  of +6.5%  driven by  digital, 
advertising, healthcare communications and media activities.

Rest of world: Asia-Pacific reported full year growth of +8.7% for 2012.  Host 
lost the Vodafone Hutchison account which impacted Q4, but the agency  largely 
made up for  the loss  by winning the  Coca-Cola account.  Creative and  media 
activities in China continued to perform well through the year. However IPO PR
consultancy and field marketing were also soft in the period. The United  Arab 
Emirates, India and Singapore were Asia's main growth drivers throughout 2012.

In Latin America, Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Uruguay delivered double digit
organic growth  throughout  the  year while  Mexico  grew  progressively.  The 
biggest contributions to  the region's strong  performance came from  digital, 
media expertise and healthcare communications.

The Group will  publish its 2012  annual results on  March 21^st, 2013,  after 
market close.

About Havas

Havas (Euronext  Paris  SA: HAV.PA)  is  one  of the  world's  largest  global 
advertising, digital and communications groups. Headquartered in Paris,  Havas 
operates through its two Business Units, Havas Creative and Havas Media.

Havas Creative Group incorporates the Havas Worldwide (www.havasworldwide.com)
network - formerly Euro  RSCG Worldwide - (316  offices in 75 countries),  the 
Arnold (www.arn.com) micro-network (16 agencies in countries on 5  continents) 
as well as several other strong agencies.

Havas Media Group  (www.havasmedia.com) is the  world's fastest growing  media 
group, operating in over 100 countries, and incorporates two major  commercial 
brands: Havas Media (formerly MPG) et Arena.

A multicultural  and  decentralized  Group,  Havas  is  present  in  over  100 
countries through its networks of  agencies and contractual affiliations.  The 
Group offers  a broad  range of  communications services,  including  digital, 
advertising,  direct   marketing,  media   planning  and   buying,   corporate 
communications, sales promotion,  design, human  resources, sports  marketing, 
multimedia interactive  communications  and public  relations.  Havas  employs 
approximately 15,000 people. Further information  about Havas is available  on 
the company's website: www.havas.fr

Forward-Looking Information
This document contains certain forward-looking statements which speak only  as 
of the  date on  which they  are made.  Forward looking  statements relate  to 
projections, anticipated events  or trends, future  plans and strategies,  and 
reflect Havas' current views about  future events. They are therefore  subject 
to inherent risks and  uncertainties that may cause  Havas' actual results  to 
differ materially  from  those  expressed in  any  forward-looking  statement. 
Factors that could  cause actual  results to differ  materially from  expected 
results include changes in the global economic environment or in the  business 
environment, and in  factors such  as competition and  market regulation.  For 
more information regarding risk factors  relevant to Havas, please see  Havas' 
filings with the AMF (Autorité  des Marchés Financiers) (documents in  French) 
and, up to  October 2006,  with the  U.S. Securities  and Exchange  Commission 
(documents in English only). Havas does not intend, and disclaims any duty  or 
obligation, to update  or revise any  forward-looking statements contained  in 
this document to reflect new information, future events or otherwise.

(1): Net New Business
Net new business represents the  estimated annual advertising budgets for  new 
business  wins  (which  includes  new   clients,  clients  retained  after   a 
competitive review, and new product or brand expansions for existing  clients) 
less the  estimated  annual  advertising budgets  for  lost  accounts.  Havas' 
management uses net new business as a measurement of the effectiveness of  its 
client development and retention efforts. Net new business is not an  accurate 
predictor of  future revenues,  since what  constitutes new  business or  lost 
business is  subject  to  differing judgments,  the  amounts  associated  with 
individual business  wins  and  losses depend  on  estimated  client  budgets, 
clients may  not  spend  as  much  as they  budget,  the  timing  of  budgeted 
expenditures is  uncertain,  and  the amount  of  budgeted  expenditures  that 
translates into revenues  depends on the  nature of the  expenditures and  the 
applicable fee structures. In addition, Havas' guidelines for determining  the 
amount of new business wins and  lost business may differ from those  employed 
by other companies.

Other definitions:

Organic growth is calculated  by comparing revenue  for the current  financial 
period against revenue for the previous financial period adjusted as follows:
- revenue for the previous financial period is recalculated using the exchange
rates for the current financial period;
- to this resulting revenue is added the revenue of companies acquired between
January 1 of the  previous financial period and  the acquisition date for  the 
period in which these companies were not as yet consolidated;
- revenue  for  the  previous  financial  period  is  also  adjusted  for  the 
consolidated revenue of companies disposed of or closed down between January 1
of the previous financial period and the date of disposal or closure.
Organic growth calculated by this method is therefore adjusted for  variations 
in exchange  rate  against  the euro,  and  for  variations in  the  scope  of 
consolidation.
