Publicis Groupe: 2012 Annual Results

Net income attributable to the Groupe reached 737 million euro (600 million in 2011). This was after net financial expense of 26 million euro (down sharply on 54 million in 2011).  Income tax for the period was 282 million euro, after 248 million in 2011, i.e. an effective tax rate of 28.8%, exactly the same rate as for the previous period. Income tax paid in France and the United States increased by 31 million euro due to new tax rules, associates' share of profit totaling 25 million euro and minority interests amounting to 27 million.

- Free cash flow: +7.8%

The Groupe's free cash flow for the period was 759 million euro, up 7.8% before changes in working capital requirements.

- Net financial debt

At year-end 2012, the Groupe's net cash situation was a positive 218 million euro , after net financial debt of 110 million euro at December 31, 2011. It should, however, be pointed out that the conversion of the 2014 Oceane bonds in July 2012 had a positive impact on net debt.

Average net debt for the period was 628 million euro, up from 465 million in 2011.

- Shareholders' equity

The Groupe's share of consolidated shareholders' equity rose from 3,898 million euro at December 31, 2011 to 4,613 million euro at December 31, 2012. This increase was mainly due to the conversion of the 2014 Oceane convertible bonds ( 694 million euro).

- Dividend

A dividend of 0.90 euro, i.e. an increase of 28.6%, will be proposed to the shareholders at their Annual General Meeting on May 29 next. Subject to approval by the shareholders, the dividend will be payable as of July 5, 2013.
