In the 2nd quarter  of 2013, SYNERGIE  resumed its growth  with a turnover  of 
€375.2 million, a 1.3% increase relative to the same period in 2012. As  such, 
the turnover for the first six  months was equal to €703.4 million,  virtually 
even relative to 2012.

The Group  is  therefore outperforming  all  of the  markets  in which  it  is 
established, with  accelerated  International  growth in  the  second  quarter 
(+4.5%), with the business in France showing clear resistance in a market that
has dropped by more than 9%.

The International side,  with a  turnover of  €301.8 million  with a  constant 
perimeter, now represents 43% of  the Group's business, with strong  increases 
having been seen in Italy, Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom, since  the 
second quarter.

These performances confirmed the relevance  of the SYNERGIE strategic  choices 
made in France, Europe and  in Canada, and of  the investments carried out  in 
high potential sectors such as aeronautics, new energies, specialised tertiary
services and the development of the OpenCenters.

In the 3rd quarter, the Group  should once again exceed its historical  highs, 
thereby offering excellent prospects for the entire year, while building on  a 
solid financial  structure that  makes it  possible to  consider new  external 
growth operations.
