(2) For 2012, the like-for-like scope includes Q1 turnover of Fene-Tech and excludes turnover of sites that have been sold (sales locations in Southwest France and concrete plant in Le Buisson) as well as the closed Royan Bois site.

Q1 2013 turnover
Despite the effects of a decline in housing starts on new construction (-11.2% over the three-month period) and two fewer working days during the first quarter of 2013, VM Matériaux's business has held up well. For the first three months of the 2013 fiscal year, the Group recorded turnover of ¤161.1 million compared with ¤163.7 million one year earlier, thus limiting the pullback to 1.6% (-1.1% at same scope).

The turnover figure includes the scope effects of the Group's reorganisation (disposal of sales locations in Southwest France, the Le Buisson concrete plant and the closing of VM Royan Bois).

The Industrial joinery and Building distribution businesses had stable performance during the period (respectively -2.0% and 0.3% at same scope), despite severe weather. The Concrete industry's turnover retreated by 5.6% due to lower volumes in a highly competitive market.

Growth and outlook
The Group remains confident in its fundamentals and is pursuing its reorganisation project. It strengthens its sales strategy in material trading activity. It is also continuing to develop innovative new products in its industrial businesses.
