A new driver of growth to strengthen Lagardère Active's digital activities

An attractive offer for LeGuide.com's shareholders: an immediate liquidity and a significant premium on the stock price

The acquisition of a leading aggregation platform through this contractual offer will enable Lagardère to expand the portfolio of the digital activities of its division Lagardère Active. Lagardère Active will increase its growth prospects in the Digital segment, with a know-how specific and complementary to its own activities, including on performance based monetization2, and remaining faithful to its positioning in respect of generating and monetizing audiences.

It offers the shareholders of LeGuide.com the opportunity to cash-in the value of their investment at attractive financial conditions. It also allows LeGuide.com to be backed by a powerful industry player whose skills complement its own and that will accelerate its development. Lagardère Active wishes to preserve the managerial autonomy of the management team of LeGuide.com and maintain the employment policy and the entrepreneurial culture which made its success since its origins.

Pursuing since several years a deliberate strategy of deployment of its brands and contents on digital media, Lagardère Active is a leading Internet media group and the number one media group on mobile in France.

This offer, which does not require a prior approval of the AMF, is for all the shares of LeGuide.com and will be opened from 9 May 2012 to 12 June 2012 (included). The contractual offer is mainly subject (i) to the condition that, on the closing of the contractual offer, the shares tendered in connection with the contractual offer and held by the Lagardère group represent at least 51% of the share capital of LeGuide.com on a fully diluted basis and (ii) to the approval of the transaction by the antitrust authorities in Germany and Austria. The detailed terms and conditions of the voluntary contractual offer to purchase are set forth in the document presenting the offers available on the website www.lagardere.com.
