At September 30, 2011: Revenue of €5.95bn: -3.5% vs. September 2010 (-1.5% like for like)

Backlog of €42.7bn: -1.0% vs. June 30, 2011; stable year on year

(PresseBox) (Paris, ) In the first nine months of 2011, AREVA generated consolidated revenue of 5.95 billion euros, down 3.5% (-1.5% like for like) compared with the same period in 2010. The decline in revenue in the Mining/Front End Business Group (-6.2% representing -3.2% LFL) and in the Back End BG (-14.7%, or -14.3% LFL) was offset in part by the increase in revenue in the Reactors & Services BG (+4.0%, or +6.1% LFL) and in the Renewable Energies BG (+53.2%, or 52.3% LFL). Foreign exchange had a negative impact of 114 million euros in the period, while the change in consolidation scope had a negative impact of 14 million euros.

In the third quarter of 2011, revenue of 1.953 billion euros was reported, down 2.9% (-1.3% LFL) compared with the third quarter of 2010. Foreign exchange had a negative impact of 28 million euros; changes in consolidation scope had a minimal impact during the period.

The group's backlog was 42.7 billion euros at September 30, 2011, representing a decrease of 1.0% compared with June 30, 2011 (43.1 billion euros) and stable compared with the backlog at September 30, 2010. This slight decrease is attributable mainly to the Reactors & Services BG. It should be noted that the EDF order for steam generators will be recorded in the backlog in the fourth quarter of 2011 and the orders related to the contract for the completion of the Bellefonte power plant, 1st power plant construction decided since the Fukushima accident, gradually enter in the backlog until the end of the project (see Part III). The backlog of the Mining/Front End BG is stable in relation to June 30, 2011. Since Fukushima, cancellations of orders have remained limited to a total of 301 million euros as of September 30, 2011.
