Setting of repurchase price of OCEANEs due January 1, 2014
(the "2014 OCEANEs")

Paris, October 25, 2013 -

On October 18, 2013, Cap Gemini S.A. ("Cap Gemini" or the "Company") conducted via BNP PARIBAS, acting as sole Global Coordinator, Joint Lead Manager and Joint Bookrunner and CITIGROUP, MORGAN STANLEY and NATIXIS, acting as Joint Lead Managers and Joint Bookrunners, a reverse bookbuilding process to collect indications of interest from holders to sell their 2014 OCEANEs. At the close of the reverse bookbuilding process, the Company received indications of interests from holders of 2014 OCEANEs representing 73% of the aggregate number of 2014 OCEANEs issued.

The Company has launched a repurchase offer in France centralized by BNP Paribas Securities Services during 5 consecutive trading days, from October 21, 2013 to October 25, 2013 included, in order to ensure that all the 2014 OCEANEs holders are treated equally.

The 2014 OCEANEs tendered pursuant to the reverse bookbuilding process and the repurchase offer, will be repurchased at a price of 48.08 euros per 2014 OCEANE, equal to the arithmetic mean of the daily volume-weighted average prices[1] (VWAP) of Cap Gemini's shares quoted on the regulated market of NYSE Euronext in Paris ("Euronext Paris") from October 18, 2013 to October 25, 2013 included[2], increased by a premium of 0.15 euro.

The press release announcing the total number of 2014 OCEANEs tendered through the reverse bookbuilding process and the repurchase offer, initially scheduled to be published on October 28, 2013, will be published by the Company on October 30, 2013.

The settlement and delivery of the repurchased 2014 OCEANEs is expected to take place on October 30, 2013, and the 2014 OCEANEs repurchased will be cancelled in accordance with their terms and conditions.
