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.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
