 Q4 2012 sales: €22.9bn, +0.8%, supported by Latin America and food sales. Fourth quarter also confirms the improvement in trends reported in France in the third quarter. Consumption in Southern Europe remains under pressure.

  • France: Sales up 0.6%, with a further improvement in trends in hypermarkets, sales growth in supermarkets and a solid performance in convenience. The figures benefit from an increase in fuel sales.
