David Jones, Havas CEO, said: "The macro-economic environment continues to be challenging. Notwithstanding, the Group's organic growth in North America, Latin America and Asia-Pacific increased in the third quarter, and we continued to generate healthy net new business. Not surprisingly, Europe slowed in Q3 though the Group continued to gain market share in the region, reflecting our competitive strength in this market. Digital continues to accelerate and is an increasingly important driver of the business."









1. KEY FIGURES

(See press release attached)


2. GENERAL COMMENTS

- Group revenue in Q3 2012 was EUR428 million compared with EUR387 million for the same period in 2011, an increase of +10.6% on an unadjusted basis. Revenue for the first nine months of 2012 was EUR1,257 million, up from EUR1,152 million for the same period last year. A weaker euro resulted in a positive exchange rate impact of EUR51 million for the first nine months of 2012.

- Group organic growth (excluding variations in exchange rate and scope of consolidation) was +2.0% in Q3 2012 and +2.5% for the first nine months of the year.

- In September Havas rebranded its 316 Euro RSCG Worldwide offices to Havas Worldwide to underscore the Group's unique integrated structure. This operation was a major success and drove momentum in the business around the world.



Highlights by region:

Europe:

In the third quarter, growth slowed across the whole of Europe. France declined slightly in Q3 due to a limited number of clients reducing spend. The UK, too, was down slightly as last year's loss of certain accounts continued to affect this quarter, although the losses have now been almost entirely offset by new wins. Performance in the rest of Europe was mixed, with growth driven by Belgium, Italy, Ireland, Germany and Russia in particular, plus a return to growth for Spain. The performance delivered by BETC London, a start-up launched just over a year ago, deserves special mention, as do recently acquired agencies such as Boondoggle and Creative Lynx.

North America: The growth rate for the region accelerated in Q3 2012, a particularly pleasing performance given the high comparative base in Q3 2011.

Rest of world: Double-digit growth in Asia-Pacific was driven mainly by China and India, with all business lines contributing to this strong performance.

Growth in Latin America accelerated considerably and continues to deliver solid performance, driven mainly by digital, media, advertising and healthcare communication. Brazil in particular delivered strong performance in the region.

3. NET NEW BUSINESS(1)


Net new business1 for the third quarter of 2012 continued the momentum of the first half of the year, at EUR304 million for Q3 and EUR1,570 million for the first nine months of the year.

Among the most significant account wins of Q3 2012:

BETC London won the Diet Coke account for the whole of Europe. MPG International won the Mr Porter account in the US, UK, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore. Havas Digital France won Caudalie in France, Germany and Spain. Another key win was Axa for Belgium, Germany and Spain.

In the US, Arnold were awarded the Sovereign/Santander Bank account for its rebranding campaign and its entire communication strategy. Fab.com, an e- commerce site operating in 20 countries, chose ArnoldNYC for its first TV spot. Havas Worldwide PR North America won the account for vodka brand Oddka (Pernod Ricard) in the US. Other US wins included Choice Hotels International, Tyco and Mundo Fox. There were also a host of new wins in digital, including the NBA, the NFL, Warby Parker and Clorox Professional Products.

The Latin American region had a number of wins including LAN Airlines and DisToyota in Colombia, Unilever in Chile, Sony Pictures, Whirlpool and Pepsico in Mexico and Qatar Airways in Brazil.

The strength of new business in Europe was highlighted by a number of wins including Omega Pharma, Gas Natural Fenosa, Dirección General de Tráfico and Konami in Spain, Durex in Italy, Ubisoft (Just4dance) and Coty in France, as well as We7 and City Index in the UK. In Poland, Havas PR Warsaw added insurance companies Prudential and Energa to its roster. Staples, Seagate and Lego turned to Havas agencies for their Social Media campaigns.

Asia-Pacific also made a number of significant new wins: Tata Motors in India, Playstation and Study Adelaide in Australia, Sugon and YFY Investment in China. Danone opted for Havas digital agencies in Melbourne and Kuala Lumpur. (See Annex 2 for the detailed list of the main new accounts won).


4. CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

The Group continued to demonstrate its leadership in Corporate Social Responsibility through the following initiatives:

  * Presenting its sustainable development report in July 2012, BETC
    introduced a new offer that places sustainable development, a factor
    increasingly central to purchasing decisions, at the heart of brand
    strategy and messages. The "Sustainable Brand Program", as it is known,
    has already been rolled out to BETC clients Lu, Carte Noire and Jacques
    Vabre.

  * The third summit of One Young World was held in Pittsburgh in October.
    Described by CNN as "the young Davos" One Young World was started by
    Havas to give brilliant young people a platform to effect positive
    change in the world. 1,300 young delegates under 25 from 183 countries
    came together with 40 high-profile counselors including former UN
    Secretary General Kofi Annan, former US President, Bill Clinton,
    Professor Muhammad Yunus, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey to create
    tangible initiatives to address some of the most pressing global
    issues. Over 200 of the world's largest companies including Google,
    Unilever, L'Oreal, Apple, Accenture, Puma and Facebook sponsored
    delegates.To find out more about the third summit:
    http://www.oneyoungworld.com

  * The ongoing partnership between the Havas Media network and the United
    Nations World Food Programme to promote the WeFeedback initiative, a
    social network dedicated to raising funds to fight hunger around the
    world. Donations to date have already paid for meals to be distributed
    to 52,995 children.

For more information: https://www.havasmediafeedsback.com/

  * Havas Media repeated its Meaningful Brands survey, questioning over
    50,000 people in 14 different countries. For each brand considered, the
    survey measures consumer perception of all sustainable development-
    related issues and ranks the brand's strengths and weaknesses in the
    eyes of the general public, as well as the degree of real attachment to
    the brand.

Forward-Looking Information

This document contains certain forward-looking statements which speak only as of the date on which they are made. Forward looking statements relate to projections, anticipated events or trends, future plans and strategies, and reflect Havas' current views about future events. They are therefore subject to inherent risks and uncertainties that may cause Havas' actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statement. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expected results include changes in the global economic environment or in the business environment, and in factors such as competition and market regulation. For more information regarding risk factors relevant to Havas, please see Havas' filings with the AMF (Autorité des Marchés Financiers) (documents in French) and, up to October 2006, with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (documents in English only). Havas does not intend, and disclaims any duty or obligation, to update or revise any forward-looking statements contained in this document to reflect new information, future events or otherwise.

(1): Net New Business Net new business represents the estimated annual advertising budgets for new business wins (which includes new clients, clients retained after a competitive review, and new product or brand expansions for existing clients) less the estimated annual advertising budgets for lost accounts. Havas' management uses net new business as a measurement of the effectiveness of its client development and retention efforts. Net new business is not an accurate predictor of future revenues, since what constitutes new business or lost business is subject to differing judgments, the amounts associated with individual business wins and losses depend on estimated client budgets, clients may not spend as much as they budget, the timing of budgeted expenditures is uncertain, and the amount of budgeted expenditures that translates into revenues depends on the nature of the expenditures and the applicable fee structures. In addition, Havas' guidelines for determining the amount of new business wins and lost business may differ from those employed by other companies.

(2): Average Net Debt is calculated as the difference between the structured gross debt under IFRS (OBSAAR, Eurobond, used credit lines, etc.) and the cash & cash equivalent measured on a daily basis for the main countries integrated in the International cashpool ; for the other countries, the average net debt taken into account is the monthly average net debt. The average net debt also includes E/O and B/O debts which are re-evaluated at June 30 and December 31, and adjusted according to actual payments.

Other definitions:

Organic growth is calculated by comparing revenue for the current financial period against revenue for the previous financial period adjusted as follows: - revenue for the previous financial period is recalculated using the exchange rates for the current financial period; - to this resulting revenue is added the revenue of companies acquired between January 1 of the previous financial period and the acquisition date for the period in which these companies were not as yet consolidated; - revenue for the previous financial period is also adjusted for the consolidated revenue of companies disposed of or closed down between January 1 of the previous financial period and the date of disposal or closure. Organic growth calculated by this method is therefore adjusted for variations in exchange rate against the euro, and for variations in the scope of consolidation.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
