1. 2013 Business Review


On an IFRS basis and at current exchange rates, premium income for the year amounted to €27.7 billion, up 4.6% as reported and 6.2% at comparable scope of consolidation and constant exchange rates (like-for-like).

In France, premium income was down 1.8% to €21.1 billion, reflecting the decline in traditional savings business. However, unit-linked sales grew by 35.6% during the year to €1.5 billion, and premiums in the Personal Risk/Protection segment, which includes death/disability, health and term creditor insurance, were up 3.4%.

Premiums in Latin America totalled €3.1 billion, an increase of 4.9% at current exchange rates despite an unfavourable currency effect. Like-for-like growth came to 19.3% for the year, reflecting very robust demand across all business segments in Brazil.

In the "Europe excluding France" region, premium income included €420 million from a newly signed group pension contract. Excluding this new business, the region's underlying premium income surged 50.7% on the upturn in Italy after a historically weak 2012, and the 76.6% growth in unit-linked sales in the region.

The Group reported positive net new money* of €1.6 billion in 2013. In France, Life and Pensions net new money was a negative €348 million, reflecting a €423 million net inflow from unit-linked contracts and a €771 million net outflow from traditional savings products.

The new business margin rose to 14.1% in 2013 from 11.6% in 2012, and the value of new business was up 26% compared with the prior year.

This performance drove a further 2.1% increase in average technical reserves, to €299 billion.

 

2. 2013 Annual Results


Net insurance revenue stood at €2,458 million for the year, up 1.6% as reported and 7.1% like-for-like.

In France, the 2.4% growth reflected the improved product mix and the increase in technical reserves.

In Latin America, net insurance revenue rose by 7.3% as reported and 22.3% like-for-like, led by stronger sales of Personal Risk/Protection contracts.

In Europe excluding France, net insurance revenue contracted by 22.7% mainly due to the Cypriot crisis and the decline in Savings technical reserves in Italy.

Revenues from own funds portfolios rose by 3.7% as reported, and by 5.6% like-for-like, to €776 million.

* French GAAP

Revenue for the year came to €3,234 million, an increase of 2.1% as reported and 6.7% like-for-like.

Administrative expenses dipped 1.1% as reported to €879 million, but rose 1.6% on a like-for-like basis.

As a result, the cost/income ratio (ratio of administrative expenses to net insurance revenue) continued to improve, representing 35.8% versus 36.7% in 2012.

At €2,354 million, EBIT was up 3.3% as reported and 8.7% like-for-like.

Attributable net profit for the year was 8.3% higher at €1,030 million.

Consolidated equity (excluding minority interests) increased by 3.4% or €479 million to €14,626 million at 31 December 2013.

2013 MCEV® (before the 2013 dividend) amounted to €16.0 billion or €23.3 per share. The 16% increase compared with 2012 (after 2012 dividends and dilution) reflects growth in ANAV (up 8%) and in-force business (up 43%).

The Solvency I coverage rate stood at 302%. Excluding unrealised capital gains, the rate was 115%.

Under Solvency II, the estimated coverage rate was 185%.

A cash dividend of 0.77 per share will be recommended at the Annual General Meeting to be held on 6 May 2014.
