PARIS -- June 28, 2013

Regulatory News:

AREVA (Paris:AREVA) has been informed by Astorg Partners of its decision not
to purchase Canberra, stating that no suitable financing is available, despite
the representations made by Astorg Partners in the share purchase agreement
dated March 29, 2013 (cf. April 3, ^  2013 press release).

In the immediate future, Canberra keeps its entire place within the AREVA
group. The priority for Canberra remains to continue pursuing its development
targets, which have been established for this activity in the “Action 2016”
strategic plan, in a growing market for its products and services.

This situation does not question the objective of the disposal program of the
“Action 2016” plan (1.2 billion euro for the 2012-2013 period), which was
reached in August 2012 with the disposal of La Mancha Resources.
