5 ProFile A GLOBAL ENGINEERING GROUP Assystem is an international industrial engineering group with French roots. Focused on industry, ambitious technology projects and provision of services, our business culture has been crafted and refined throughout our 40-year history. Our mission consists in helping companies to reduce the costs and lead times involved in developing their new products and processes and bringing them to the production stage. With nearly 10,000 employees, we bring our technical, scientific and methodological expertise to bear in leading-edge innovation sectors, such as aeronautics, nuclear energy and the rail and automotive industries. Our engineering centers located in 13 countries worldwide and our commitment to team mobility enable us to perform anywhere in the world without compromising the Made in Assystem quality revenue Million EMPloYeeS 9,470 present in 13 countries

6 2008 was the best financial year to date for Assystem, for Assystem, with a 4.3% organic growth in revenue at million. Assystem is also showing an operating profit of 42.3 million (equals 6.3 %), an improvement over 2007 levels. At the same time, our free cash flow of 35.4 million enables us to continue to reduce our net borrowings. Our gearing has fallen from 19 % to 14 %, whilst net debt is now approximately one-third of EBITDA. SOLIdity & RESPONSIvENESS interview with the President of the Management Board dominique louis The constant improvement seen in our key indicators over several years reflects the quality of the groundwork done within the company to set up detailed procedures, improve the efficiency of our cross-disciplinary functions, improve control of our international subsidiaries and ensure the permanent implementation of management best practice. Paradoxically, the Assystem share price has never been lower, despite the fact that earnings per share have risen by over 50%, and that our stated intention is to propose a dividend increase of more than 30% higher dividend increase of more than 30% higher than This is undoubtedly the result of market uncertainty about the future, and no one would seek to minimize the seriousness of the crisis in which the whole world now finds itself. Nevertheless, in addition to its rigorous approach to management, Assystem has other sound reasons for being confident about the future. Our multi-sector exposure and adaptability allow us to absorb the contraction now being seen in several outsourced R&D market segments in Europe, and particularly in the automotive industry. 2 assystem

7 The aeronautic industry, to which we are a strategic supplier, continues to grow strongly, as can be seen from the diversity of our European order book amongst the industry s major players. Our operations in India and Romania continue to play their role in reducing costs in an economic environment under increasing pressure. I would add that the quest for greater commercial efficiency and further reductions in our indirect costs are a priority for the 2009 financial year. The second reason for our confidence about the future is the dynamic trend in the energy and nuclear power markets, which offers us good long-term visibility. Assystem is recognized as a significant player in this industry, where we have been able to maintain a high level of strong expertise. The start-up of EPR programs in Europe and abroad brings with it some very exciting prospects for Assystem. Our historic expertise in testing and commissioning, our proven know-how in major project management and our experience of cross-cultural management should give us an enviable position in this market. As an important contributor to progress and modernity through a double commitment in sustainable development engineering (energy) as well as in engineering and technology consultancy (aeronautics, transportation, etc.), Assystem remains confident in its ability to create long-term value for its customers, its employees and shareholders.

11 markets & competencies Assystem today ASSYSTEM A GLOBAL ENGINEERING GROUP Over 40 years of history The history of the Assystem Group began in 1966 with the creation of a French company called Atem by a team of nuclear engineers and technicians. Specializing in the commissioning of industrial units, the company s growth was fueled by the major nuclear power plant-building program initiated by the French government after the first oil crisis of In the 80s, the company began to diversify into project management, focusing mainly on control systems and industrial IT for the automotive, steelmaking, space and defense industries saw the creation of Alphatem, a company owned jointly with COGEMA, and originally focused on the testing and commissioning of COGEMA industrial investments programs at La Hague and Melox (France). In 1995, the Group adopted the name of Assystem and was listed on the Paris stock exchange marked the end of major state investment in nuclear power both in France and internationally, and the start of a new phase in the life of Assystem, as the company diversified decisively towards product engineering in the aeronautic and automotive industries without losing any of its skills and expertise in nuclear power. The merger with Brime Technologies in 2003 established Assystem as a major player in advanced technology consultancy and opened the door to the Group s globalization. A series of significant acquisitions, including Inbis Ltd., which became Assystem UK Ltd., as well as SKI and Atena in Germany, would then remodel the face of the Group. In 2008, Assystem s presence in India was further reinforced by the formation of Silver Atena; a company specialized in embedded critical safety systems. Assystem employs 9,500 people in 13 countries located in Europe (France, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Romania, Switzerland, Belgium), in Asia (China and India), in Morocco and Canada. Nearly one-third of the Group revenue is now generated outside France. The Assystem Group provides services to international customers in the energy sector (nuclear and conventional) and industries including, most importantly, aeronautics, space, automotive and railway. Its international scope means it is able to assist its customers with all their operations, providing the specific skills of its European and offshore (Romania and India) subsidiaries for their major projects. Thanks to this international presence, the Group is well-placed to assist its customers as a favoured partner, in particular in aeronautics, in which it is the leading European design firm as regards aero-structures and engines. Its objectives are based on its partnership culture, on the complementary nature of the know-how of its subsidiaries and on its adaptability to changing circumstances: since 2008, it has begun a major redeployment of its employees so as to meet the requirements of the nuclear sector, in Europe today, and worldwide in the future. 28 % Revenues realised outside france REFERENCE DOCUMENT

12 markets & competencies Four major business lines Assystem s operations encompass process engineering, product engineering, production support and the outsourced R&D of new technologies. Its excellence in these four business lines is based on several decades of sector-based experience, capitalised upon in the expertise of its reference in-house business lines. In order to fully enhance this expertise, Assystem has developed its control of project management by introducing an organisation which meets the specific requirements of both major projects and technical support. Process engineering, its original business line, covers designing production systems, industrial investment project management, tests and commissioning, training and industrial transfers. As an example, the Group acts as project manager for major energy operators, as a developer or definer of integrated equipment for electric power plants; and as project-owner assistant for industrial transfer operations or for the construction of plants, in particular, in the biotechnologies sector. In product engineering, the Group s skills range from functional analysis to validation, via design, calculation and testing. In the aeronautics sector, it is entrusted with very varied assignments: mechanical dimensioning, design of aero-structures, retrofitting and installing systems, in particular, electrical systems, and the integration of the major sections of aircraft (centre part of a fuselage). In the automotive industry, it works on both the development of models, for example, a fuel cell battery demonstration vehicle, and on the adaptation of a component or a whole engine to a new technical environment. In the production support businesses, the Group works in operation-maintenance where it is also sought after in exports, for example to assist the operator of a nuclear power plant in managing its tranche shutdowns. For improving industrial performance levels, it conducts audits prior to the modernisation of the facilities. It has also developed training sessions leading to accreditation for service providers in the nuclear sector. It has significant expertise in logistics and regularly assists with the installation of heavy infrastructures worldwide. Finally, through the electronic engineering as well as in scientific and technical IT business lines, the Group is involved in studies and prototypes, the development of equipment and software, system integration, validation, training, operations and the maintaining in operational condition (MOC). Its main expertise relates to safety, electronics, on-board systems and automatisms. As an example, it has designed a navigation calculator for warships and it has carried-out acceptance work for on-board equipment in satellites or the MOC of nuclear power plant automatons. 8 assystem

13 The notion of continual adaptation As it is with living species, so it is with companies: only the most agile and the most adaptable can win. Convinced of this reality, the Assystem Group continually reinvents and redesigns itself in response to the expectations of constantly-evolving markets. It supports its customers in Eastern Europe, Morocco and India and adopts its international growth plans to follow them into their new emerging markets. Assystem has proved this capacity to adapt on many occasions. It is an ability based on two key strengths: the diversity of its expertise and business sectors, that ensures its continued growth and its culture of sector and geographical mobility sustained by the Group s well-developed procedures for optimizing the operation of its multicultural teams. Against a background of improvement in every one of its financial indicators, Assystem looks forward with confidence to One of the main reasons behind this confidence is the performance achieved by our teams in the Energy and Nuclear Power markets. Both offer enormous growth potential, and Assystem possesses distinctive core skills that set the Group apart from its competitors in these fields, which now represent 30% of our revenue and offer us real visibility over the medium term.
