Following the announcement of the project of demerger and flotation of Fnac on 9 October this
year, the PPR annual general meeting (AGM) will be convened to vote on the accounts for the
financial year ending 31 December 2012 and on the distribution of Fnac shares on 18 June 2013.

Given this delayed date, the board of directors of PPR has decided to distribute an interim
dividend of EUR1.50 per share for the financial year 2012. This interim dividend will be paid on
Thursday 24 January 2013. The ex-dividend date will be Monday 21 January 2013 in the morning. The
last trading day with interim dividend rights is Friday 18 January 2013.

The balance of the dividend for the financial year 2012 will be decided by the board of directors
on 14 February 2013 and put to the vote at the next AGM.
