Olivier Piou, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “First quarter growth
extends last year’s strong performance. The Platforms & Services activity
carries on its fast development, delivering almost half of the quarter’s
revenue growth. We continue to build on the long-term contracts in place and
add new clients who want to secure mobile access to their services. Electronic
identity programs deployed by governments modernizing their services remain on
their outstanding trajectory, driving Security growth to +21%. Sales of
high-end products to mobile network operators continue to expand and are
expected to accelerate over the year as additional LTE and mobile payment
services are launched. With this good start, we are on track to deliver on our
strong 2013 outlook.”

                Basis of preparation of financial information

Ongoing operations

For a better understanding of the current and future year-on-year evolution of
the business, the Company provides revenue from “ongoing operations” for both
2013 and 2012 reporting periods.

The adjusted income statement for ongoing operations excludes, as per the IFRS
income statement, the contribution from discontinued operations to the income
statement, and also the contribution from assets classified as held for sale
and from other items not related to ongoing operations.

In this publication reported figures for ongoing operations only differ from
figures for all operations by the contribution from assets held for sale.

Appendix 3 bridges the revenue for ongoing operations to the revenue for all
operations.

Historical exchange rates and constant exchange rates figures

Revenue variations are at constant exchange rates except where otherwise
noted.

The Company sells its products and services in a very large number of
countries and is commonly remunerated in currencies other than the Euro.
Fluctuations in exchange rates of these other currencies against the Euro have
a translation impact on the reported Euro value of the Company revenues.
Comparisons at constant exchange rates aim at eliminating the effect of
currencies translation movements on the analysis of the Group revenue by
translating prior year revenues at the same average exchange rate as applied
in the current year.

For the period, revenue for ongoing operations was up by +9% year-on-year at
constant exchange rates to €518 million, growing in all regions.

All main segments increased their revenue. The strong contribution from Secure
Transactions and Security, which together represented 45% of the total Company
revenue in the first quarter, evidences the Company’s portfolio of growth
engines.

Revenue from Platforms & Services activities grew by +29%, showing
double-digit expansion in all segments. This increase represented 49% of the
total revenue growth at constant rates in the first quarter, illustrating the
build-up of customer contracts activated over the previous semesters.

During the first quarter, effects of currency translation movements were
significant. Revenue expansion was +9% at constant exchange rates and +7% at
historical exchange rates, a 20% difference, due to a particularly strong
impact from fluctuations in Asian currencies. Revenue variations by segment
and by region are presented in appendix 1. Average exchange rates between the
Euro and the US Dollar are presented in appendix 4.

The Mobile Communication segment posted revenue of €239 million, growing by
+4%.

Revenue from Platforms & Services grew by +33%, reaching €52 million and
representing 22% of the segment revenue. This growth came mainly from LTE
subscriptions management and from the acceleration of mobile payment and
trusted services management (TSM) projects.

In Embedded software & Products, deployments of LTE and NFC products continued
to drive mix improvement. During the quarter Gemalto focused its resources on
projects that require high-end products for deployments expected in the latter
part of 2013. Market contraction in India and disciplined pricing strategy
reduced year-on-year low-end Qipso product revenue by €7 million. Revenue from
mid-range to high-end UpTeq products increased by +2%.

The Machine-to-Machine segment posted revenue of €45 million, an increase of
+3% at constant exchange rates. The increase in activity was driven by strong
demand in the Americas compensating for slow activity in Western Europe. The
demand for Cinterion modules and data management services stems from
industrial sectors that are integrating mobile connectivity into their product
offerings to reduce costs, improve data collection and deliver higher levels
of service.

                             Secure Transactions

Secure Transactions posted a +13% revenue increase at €143 million, an
acceleration on the performance recorded in previous quarters, demonstrating
the benefits of the operational investments started in the second part of
2011.

The revenue increase in Embedded software & Products came from new countries
migrating to EMV technology with entry-range products. Platforms & Services
also contributed to the growth with an increase in new projects for mobile
payment and trusted service management (TSM).

Revenue in Security grew by +21% to €91 million with solid growth in both
Government Programs and Identity & Access Management.

The deployment of electronic identity management programs in both fast-growing
and developed economies continued to drive the performance in Government
Programs. These programs include creation and management of national
registries, e-Identity, e-Passport and other e-Government services, all of
which generated further expansion in Platforms & Services as well as in
Embedded software & Products.

The activity in Patents continues to be limited due to ongoing litigation
initiated by the Company in the United States, in the Eastern District of
Texas.

The trial that was expected to happen at the end of the first quarter was
cancelled due to a summary judgment motion filed by the defendants, and
recently granted by the Texas Court.

It has been established that defendants use our Java conversion technology,
reinforcing the validity of our patent portfolio. The defense was focused on a
single claim construction issue that limits the scope of our IP rights related
to this technology. We believe the Texas Court took the practical approach of
letting an Appellate Court determine the merits of the claim construction
issue that was the subject of the summary judgment motion, thereby relieving
it of the burden of a trial until there is a definitive ruling from the
Appellate Court on this issue.

We have resumed bilateral communications with the various parties to amicably
resolve this case. If these efforts are unsuccessful, we expect the
presentation before the Appellate Court to be completed in the Fall of 2013,
and a conclusion of the case in the first half of 2014 if a trial is needed.
