The combined general meeting of Groupe Eurotunnel SA (Paris:GET) held today
Wednesday 15 May 2013 in Coquelles (France) brought together 62.68% of the
capital of the company.

All resolutions put to shareholders by the board of directors were approved by
an overwhelming majority^1.

The ordinary general meeting of Groupe Eurotunnel SA, having approved the
statutory and consolidated financial statements, approved the distribution of
a dividend of 12 cents of a euro per share, being a 50% increase of last
year’s dividend, and ratified the appointment of Mrs. Perrette Rey as an
independent director.

With this appointment, the board of directors comprises almost 40% of women
members and international members in its composition. With over 70% of board
members being independent, the board of directors of Groupe Eurotunnel SA is
thus following the best practice recommended by the Afep/Medef corporate
governance code.

stated: «I would like to thank all shareholders who, through their clearly
expressed vote and their loyalty, support the long-term strategy of the Group
and show their interest in the life of our business.»
