    Financière de l'Odet : Financial information for the first quarter 2021

    FINANCIÈRE DE l'ODET PRESS RELEASE Financial information for the first quarter 2021 22 april 2021 Solid growth in Group revenue in first-quarter 2021: €6,102 million, up 6% at constant scope and exchange rates Revenue for the first quarter 2021At constant scope and exchange rates, the Group’s first-quarter 2021 revenue was up 6% to €6,102 million. This change mainly includes: a 15% increase in the transport and logistics business driven by freight forwarding, resulting mainly from an increase in volumes and freight rates in air and maritime traffic. The contraction of logistics activities in Africa was largely offset by the good performance of the port concessions business; a 10% decline in oil logistics due to the decrease in oil product prices and volumes sold; growth in communications activities (+5%), driven primarily by the growth of Universal Music Group (+9%) and Editis (+40%); a 24% increase in electricity storage and systems, owing mainly to the growth of Blue Solutions and BlueBus. Revenue as reported increased 2% year on year owing to unfavourable foreign exchange impacts of -€213 million and a scope effect of +€20 million.Change in revenue by business (in € millions)Q1 20212020 (1)2020ReportedgrowthOrganicgrowth Transportation and Logistics1,5551,3581,394+12%+15%Oil Logistics565630631-11%-10%Communications3,9003,7133,868+1%+5%Electricity Storage and Systems806465+24%+24%Other (agricultural assets, media and holdings)288-74%-74%Total Bolloré Group revenue6,1025,7735,966+2%+6% (1) at constant scope and exchange rates At constant scope and exchange rates, compared to the first quarter 2020, changes in the main sectors were as follows: Transportation and Logistics, Oil Logistics: Transportation and logistics revenue rose 15%. The performance was driven by freight forwarding, bolstered by the increase in freight rates and volumes in maritime traffic as well as in air transport, the latter notably benefiting from exceptional operations out of Asia related to the health crisis. The contraction in the logistics business in Africa was largely offset by a strong performance in port concessions, mainly Benin Terminal, Conakry Terminal in Guinea, Freetown Terminal in Sierra Leone, and Abidjan Terminal in Côte d’Ivoire. Rail concessions were up slightly, notably thanks to Sitarail, which benefited from an increase in transport volumes. Oil logistics revenue fell 10%, the result of a decline in oil product prices and volumes sold, owing primarily to a base effect linked to the start of the COVID-19 crisis. Communications: Revenue for the communications activities, i.e. Vivendi’s business, rose 5% in organic terms compared with first-quarter 2020. Vivendi benefited from the strong growth of Universal Music Group (+9%), fuelled by an increase in subscription and streaming revenues (+20%). The growth also reflects the stable revenue of Canal+ Group, underpinned by the performances of its international businesses and StudioCanal, growth for Havas (+1%) with the resumption of activity, and a sharp year-on-year rise for Editis (+40%). Electricity Storage and Systems: Revenue from industrial activities (electricity storage, plastic films, terminals and specialised systems) was up 24% vs. first-quarter 2020. The increase was driven by strong growth in the batteries division (thanks to the Daimler contract), a sharp increase in bus sales and a robust performance in plastic films. However, the specialised terminals business (terminals and entrance control systems for train stations and airports) posted a decrease, its main customers remaining heavily impacted by the health crisis. Recent highlights and events: Universal Music Group On 29 January 2021, Vivendi finalised the sale of an additional 10% of the share capital of Universal Music Group (UMG) to the consortium led by Tencent based on an enterprise value of €30 billion for 100% of UMG’s share capital. This transaction resulted in an inflow of €2,847 million for Vivendi. The Tencent-led consortium now owns 20% of UMG. On 13 February 2021, Vivendi announced that it was reviewing the plan to distribute 60% of UMG’s share capital and float the company by the end of 2021.Following the approval by 99.98% of Vivendi's shareholders at the Extraordinary General Meeting of March 29, 2021, of an amendment to the company's by-laws, which now allows Vivendi to distribute dividends or interim dividends, reserves or premiums by way of the delivery of assets in kind, including financial securities, Vivendi will ask its shareholders at the Annual Shareholders' Meeting to be held on June 22, 2021, to adopt a position on the plan to make an exceptional distribution in kind in the form of UMG shares to its shareholders, with completion expected in fall 2021. Togo-Guinea investigation To bring a definitive end to the proceedings resulting from the alleged facts, Bolloré SE and Financière de l’Odet SE have agreed to enter into a judicial public interest agreement (convention judiciaire d’intérêt public, or CJIP) with the national financial prosecutor. The agreement, concluded on 9 February 2021 and approved by the Paris Court of Justice on 26 February 2021, equates neither to an admission of guilt nor to a conviction judgement. Under the agreement, the national financial prosecutor agrees to cancel the proceedings against Bolloré SE, which agrees to submit its compliance programme to controls carried out by the French Anti-Corruption Agency (AFA) over a period of two years and to bear costs up to €4 million. Financière de l’Odet SE has agreed to pay a fine in the public interest of €12 million. The execution of the CJIP agreement puts an end to the proceedings against Bolloré SE. Acquisition of Vivendi shares In March and April 2021, Financière de l'Odet SE acquired 2.72 million Vivendi shares at an average price of 27.76 euros and for a total amount of 75.4 million euros.Financière de l'Odet SE currently holds 0.23% of Vivendi's capital. Impacts of the health crisis Although the impacts are more sensitive for some countries or business lines than for others, the Group has demonstrated resilience and successfully adapted to continue providing its customers with the best possible service, while reducing its costs to safeguard its margins. The transport and logistics business benefited from exceptional freight rates, which partly offset the slowdown in normal flows. The communications business proved resilient, particularly in music and pay television. The Group is carefully reviewing the current and potential consequences of the crisis. But it remains confident in the resilience of its main business lines. It continues to make every effort to ensure business continuity, as well as to serve and entertain its customers and audiences, while respecting the instructions of the authorities of each country in which it operates.

The review report will be issued following the completion of the procedures necessary to the filing of the annual financial report. Information on the impacts of COVID-19 With its vast geographical presence, the Group was obliged in 2020 to address the successive consequences of the health crisis in its main operating regions. The Group successfully demonstrated its resilience and adapted to continue providing the best possible service to its customers while reducing its costs in order to preserve its margins. Transport and Logistics activities benefited from exceptional freight rates, which partly offset the slowdown in normal flows. The Communication businesses held up well thanks to music and pay television, despite the downturn at Havas Group and Vivendi Village (live performances in particular), which were more impacted by the health crisis. Editis has posted a strong rebound since June 2020 in France. The Group continues to carefully analyse the current and potential consequences of the crisis but remains confident in the resilience of its main business lines. In 2020, without modifying the valuation methods used each year, the Group reviewed the value of goodwill associated with its cash-generating units (CGUs) or groups of CGUs, ensuring that the recoverable amount of the CGUs or groups of CGUs tested exceeds their net book value, including goodwill. This analysis did not lead to the recognition of a loss of value for the current financial year. As of December 31, 2020, net debt amounted to €9,102 million compared with €8,781 million at December 31, 2019, for an increase of €321 million, including a €567 million decrease in Financière de l’Odet’s net debt excluding Vivendi. As of January 31, 2021, the Group also has significant financing capacities: €3.1 billion for Financière de l’Odet and €9.4 billion including Vivendi. Comparability of financial statements Performance indicators As of December 31, 2020, the Financière de l’Odet Group had not adjusted the definition of performance indicators, particularly EBITA, which are comparable to those of 2019 and therefore include the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Change in scope of consolidation Editis has been consolidated by Vivendi since February 1, 2019;M7 has been consolidated by Canal+ Group since September 12, 2019;Sale of Bolloré Ports France and Wifirst in the second half of 2019;Loss of significant influence of Mediobanca observed in the second half of 2020. v Trend in the main currencies Average rate2020 2019Change USD1.141.12-2%GBP0.890.88-1%PLN4.444.30-3%JPY121.78122.060%CNY7.877.73-2%ZAR18.7716.17-16% Presentation of content assets Given the increasing importance of these assets in its financial statements, the Group has chosen to adopt the presentation adopted by its Vivendi subsidiary, which isolates current/non-current content assets and their monetary variation on separate lines on the assets side of the balance sheet and in the cash flow statement. These reclassifications were carried out in the 2020 financial statements, with 2019 financial statements restated to ensure comparability. The detailed impacts are presented in the notes to the financial statements. Glossary Organic growth: growth at constant scope and exchange rates.Net revenue (Havas Group): revenue after deduction of re-billable costs.Adjusted operating income (EBITA): operating income before amortisation of intangible assets related to business combinations – PPA (purchase price allocation), impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets related to business combinations.EBITDA: operating income before depreciation and amortisation.Net financial debt / Net cash position: sum of borrowings at amortised cost, less cash and cash equivalents, cash management financial assets and net derivative financial instruments (assets or liabilities) with an underlying net financial indebtedness, as well as cash deposits backed by borrowings. The non-GAAP measures defined above should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, other GAAP measures of operational and financial performance, and Financière de l’Odet considers these to be relevant indicators of the Group's operational and financial performance. Furthermore, it should be noted that other companies may define and calculate these indicators differently. It is therefore possible that the indicators used by Financière de l’Odet cannot be directly compared with those of other companies. The percentages changes indicated in this document are calculated in relation to the same period of the preceding fiscal year, unless otherwise stated. Due to rounding in this presentation, the sum of some data may not correspond exactly to the calculated total and the percentage may not correspond to the calculated variation. 1 See glossary 2 See glossary Attachment 2021-03-04-Odet -CP-résultats FY 2020 EN
