SALES FOR THE THIRD QUARTER 2020-2021 UP BY 7.1% ON A LIKE-FOR-LIKE BASIS, CONFIRMING THE DYNAMIC MOMENTUMFOR ALL ACTIVITIES Vegetable Seeds division: a marked increase in sales over the third quarter Over the course of the third quarter, the Vegetable Seeds division achieved sales of 212.2 million euros, a slight decrease of 1.7% with current data, but a marked increase on a like-for-like basis: +3.6%, on the basis of a high benchmark. Indeed, the third quarter for 2019-2020 saw significant business growth, as a result of the emergence of the world health crisis which had led to certain grower customers placing anticipated orders as they were concerned to secure their supplies. The best performances were posted for tomato and carrot, with sales increasing strongly in very many countries. There was also marked growth for several other strategic crops, primarily sweet pepper, cauliflower and bean. In terms of geographical zones, the most dynamic region concerned the Americas. Europe also posted quality performances, driven by a buoyant market, particularly in France, where growth was strong for most of the crops. The increase in sales also concerned Asia, particularly India and China. Consequently, at the end of the third quarter, there was an increase in all geographic regions, with the exception of the Middle East, where sales were slightly lower. Consequently, aggregate sales for Vegetable Seeds on March 31, 2021 came to 465.2 million euros, an increase of 0.2%. Restated like-for-like, the business posted significant growth of 5.9%. Vilmorin & Cie can thus confirm its objective for growth in sales for Vegetable Seeds for fiscal year 2020-2021 of 4% to 5% on a like-for-like basis compared to 2019-2020. Field Seeds division: significant business growth over the third quarter, confirming the excellent start to the fiscal year Sales achieved by Field Seeds over the third quarter rose significantly (337.7 million euros, i.e. +1.3% with current data, and +7.3% on a like-for-like basis). In Europe, sales for the quarter for Field Seeds continued to progress (304.5 million euros, i.e. +2.1% on a like-for-like basis), after an extremely dynamic second quarter. Vilmorin & Cie has thus confirmed its capacity to achieve a high-quality fiscal year, in spite of the hike in its procurement costs directly related to the climate conditions, and to strengthen its competitive positions in most of its strategic crops by the end of the fiscal year. In a context where cultivated acreage is expected to drop, there was a fine increase in sales of corn seeds, even though this increase was less marked over the third quarter, because of the fact that the campaign was very early this year. It should indeed be remembered that the second quarter had posted extremely high business growth, mainly due to anticipated sales prompted by the fears of certain farmers regarding the availability of seeds. Growth, which was particularly strong in Central and Northern Europe and in Russia, was supported by a high-performance product portfolio and the launch of new varieties; it should result in market share gains in most countries by the end of the commercial campaign. The sunflower seed campaign has been of very high quality, particularly in Russia, where there has been a particularly strong increase in sales volumes. Furthermore, orders are looking very promising, while the acreage devoted to this crop should increase, particularly in Eastern Europe. This growth in business should result in significant market share gains in almost all countries. In South America, the third quarter (29.4 million euros) showed an extremely marked increase in business. - In Brazil, the commercial campaign for safrinha corn posted excellent growth, both in volume and in value, in the context of favorable agricultural markets and a significant increase in the cultivated acreage. Vilmorin & Cie is continuing to strengthen its commercial positions in corn in Brazil. As for the soybean campaign, it was marked by a controlled drop in sales volumes, accompanied by an increase in sales prices.- In Argentina, Vilmorin & Cie signed off a good corn campaign, resulting in market share gains in a complex economic and financial context. Consequently, aggregate sales for the Field Seeds division on March 31, 2021 stood at 591.9 million euros, an increase of 5.3% compared with the same period for the previous fiscal year; on a like-for-like basis, sales increased by 12.1%. This truly fine performance at the end of the first nine months of the fiscal year means that Vilmorin & Cie is able to raise its sales growth objective for Field Seeds for fiscal year 2020-2021. Vilmorin & Cie is now aiming for an increase of between 9% and 10% on a like-for-like basis compared with the previous fiscal year for this activity, compared with a previous growth target of 5% to 6%. Moreover, with regard to associated companies: On the North American market, AgReliant's sales were lower at the end of the third quarter, particularly for corn seeds, in a context where a slight increase in cultivated acreage for this crop is expected. Nevertheless, the last part of the fiscal year is looking promising and should see an appreciable increase in volumes sold both for corn seeds and soybean seeds compared with the previous fiscal year.On the African market, Seed Co posted a very strong business increase throughout all its markets in Africa, with growth in volumes for the main crops sold, particularly corn. In spite of the difficulties faced in certain countries, such as Zambia, Seed Co pursued its dynamic international development, while managing to redeploy its activities in Zimbabwe significantly. At the end of this high-quality fiscal year, Seed Co can confirm its position as No. 1 seed company in Africa.On the Australian market, Australian Grain Technologies (AGT) achieved an excellent commercial campaign, after a year marked by record wheat production in the country. The company, which holds more than 50% market share, has strengthened its leadership on the Australian wheat market. OUTLOOK FOR 2020-2021: UPWARD REVISION OF THE TARGETS FOR BUSINESS GROWTH AND THE CURRENT OPERATING MARGIN RATE Considering the first nine months of the fiscal year as presented above, and on the basis of information available to date, Vilmorin & Cie is raising its sales and current operating margin objectives for fiscal year 2020-2021. These objectives now correspond to an increase in consolidated sales of between 6% and 8% on a like-for-like basis, as opposed to growth of 4% to 6% previously targeted, and a current operating margin rate of between 8.5% and 9%, including research investment which should be higher than 260 million euros. Moreover, Vilmorin & Cie confirms that it anticipates a contribution from associated companies – mainly AgReliant (North America. Field Seeds), Seed Co (Africa. Field Seeds) and AGT (Australia. Field Seeds) – of around 22 million euros. Daniel JACQUEMOND, Vilmorin & Cie's CEO, has declared: "Vilmorin & Cie has achieved a very high-quality performance at the end of the first nine months of fiscal year 2020-2021. All the business activities are showing robust growth in sales, enabling Vilmorin & Cie to raise its annual objectives once again. At the end of the fiscal year, Vilmorin & Cie should have also gained market shares in most of its business segments, thus reinforcing its solid position as the 4th largest seed company in the world, while at the same time delivering a marked increase in financial performances. This achievement confirms the relevance of Vilmorin & Cie's development and innovation strategy and the resilience of its business model, on a seed market that is resolutely buoyant and more crucial than ever to meet the world's food challenges."

Overall capital adequacy ratioAs at March 31, 2021, the financial conglomerate’s excess capital was estimated at around €2.9bn. 1 See note on methodologyAPPENDICES Note on methodology: The results at 31/03/2021 were examined by the board of directors at their meeting on 06/05/2021. Figures at 31/03/2021 are presented in accordance with IAS/IFRS accounting standards and IFRS Interpretation Committee (IFRIC) rulings as adopted in the European Union and applicable at this date. Following the evolution in standards adopted for the 1Q21 financial disclosures and the evolution in the Asset & Wealth Management’s organization since January 1st, 2021, the 2020 quarterly series have been restated: Evolution of the standards applied: The analytical remuneration rate of capital has been lowered in order to reflect the decrease in long term sovereign interest rates in Europe and in the US, whilst still keeping a 10-year average reference rate ;The analytical allocation rate for structure charges from Natixis holding functions to the business lines have been reviewed based on a recent analysis on allocated resources from the different support functions towards the business lines. This evolution of the standards applied is neutral at Natixis consolidated level, however it impacts each business lines and the corporate center, at the revenue level for the first point and at the expense level for the second point. Besides, Natixis RoTE calculation is adjusted in order to exclude unrealized or deferred gains and losses recognized in equity (OCI), as it is already done for the calculation of Natixis RoE. Evolution in Asset Management: During 1Q21, the final memorandum of understanding regarding the sale of Natixis’ 50.01% stake in H2O AM to the management of the company has been signed. The 2020 quarterly series have been restated to isolate the net contribution of H2O AM on a single line item at the bottom of Natixis’ income statement. The other income statement line items (net revenues, expenses…) are now being presented excluding H2O AM. In 2021, the contribution of H2O AM to Natixis’ income statement will be limited to the EUR/GBP evolution which will be classified as an exceptional item (see page 3). Business line performances using Basel 3 standards: The performances of Natixis business lines are presented using Basel 3 standards. Basel 3 risk-weighted assets are based on CRR-CRD4 rules as published on June 26th, 2013 (including the Danish compromise treatment for qualified entities).Natixis’ RoTE is calculated by taking as the numerator net income (group share) excluding DSN interest expenses (the associated tax benefit being already accounted for in the net income following the adoption of IAS 12 amendment). Equity capital is average shareholders’ equity group share as defined by IFRS, after payout of dividends1, excluding average hybrid debt, unrealized or deferred gains and losses recognized in equity (OCI) as well as average intangible assets and average goodwillNatixis’ RoE is calculated by taking as the numerator net income (group share) excluding DSN interest expenses (the associated tax benefit being already accounted for in the net income following the adoption of IAS 12 amendment). Equity capital is average shareholders’ equity group share as defined by IFRS, after payout of dividends1, excluding average hybrid debt and unrealized or deferred gains and losses recognized in equity (OCI)RoE for business lines is calculated based on normative capital to which are added goodwill and intangible assets for the business line. Normative capital allocation to Natixis’ business lines is carried out on the basis of 10.5% of their average Basel 3 risk-weighted assets. Business lines benefit from remuneration of normative capital allocated to them Net book value is calculated by taking shareholders’ equity group share (minus distribution of dividends proposed by the Board of Directors but not yet approved by the General Shareholders' Meeting1), restated for hybrids and capital gains on reclassification of hybrids as equity instruments. Net tangible book value is adjusted for goodwill relating to equity affiliates, restated goodwill and intangible assets as follows: €m31/03/2021Goodwill3,596Restatement for AWM deferred tax liability & others(333)Restated goodwill3,263 Dividend proposal for FY20 deducted from the net book value and the net tangible book value.

PayPal Holdings Inc. rallied as its results topped already high expectations.Separate economic data Thursday highlighted a rebound in productivity. Traders are now awaiting Friday’s employment report, which is expected to show the U.S. added about 1 million jobs in April -- a sign that fewer business restrictions are bringing more Americans back to work.“With jobless claims hitting a pandemic-era low, anticipation for the full jobs picture tomorrow mounts,” said Mike Loewengart, managing director of investment strategy at E*Trade Financial. “Today’s read is another proof point that we’re one step closer to full economic recovery. As we see some serious momentum building on the jobs front, all eyes will be on how this plays into action taken by the Fed.”After closing at a fresh high on Wednesday, the Dow Jones Transportation Average -- considered a barometer of economy activity -- surged 25% above its 200-day moving average.
