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."
Consolidated Group revenue for 2012 was EUR1,778 million, an increase of 8% over 2011 on an unadjusted basis. Revenue for the 4(th) quarter of 2012 was EUR521 million compared with EUR492 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 EUR41 million for full year 2012 for this currency only. The total exchange rate impact is EUR63 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 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.

ANNEX 2: 2011 Organic Growth by quarter
See table in attached release.
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
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 (Autorite des Marches 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.
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.
