Net insurance revenue grew by 1.2% in 2012 to €3,167 million.

Total net insurance revenue generated in France was down 6.5% due to non-recurring technical factors, notably the impact of a reduction in regulatory valuation rates of interest. Excluding these non-recurring factors, the year-on-year change was an increase of 8.6%, reflecting higher average technical reserves, improved loss ratios and more favourable financial market conditions.

Net insurance revenue from International operations rose 8.9%, lifted by growth in Brazil where volumes and margins continued to trend upwards.    

Administrative expenses were broadly stable, rising by just 0.4%. The cost/income ratio was also flat at 36.7%.

Consolidated EBIT rose 1.6% to €2,278 million, with France contributing 57.1% of the total and Brazil 35.2%.

A dividend of €0.77 per share will be recommended at the Annual General Meeting, with a scrip option. The signatories of the shareholders' agreement have stated that they intend to exercise this option.

Firm financial markets led to a €156 million net positive contribution, taking into account a €170 million impairment loss recognised on CNP UniCredit Vita goodwill.
