PARIS, 30 July 2013 -

The Board of Directors of Eutelsat Communications (ISIN: FR0010221234 – Euronext
Paris: ETL) met today and reviewed its financial results for the year ended 30 June 2013.

Commenting on the full year 2012-2013 results, Michel de Rosen, CEO of Eutelsat
Communications, said:

“2012-2013 was another year of growth for Eutelsat, with a robust performance from our
core Video activity, while Data and Multi-usage still face a more challenging environment.
In Value Added Services, traction is increasing on KA-SAT for both consumer and
professional services, reflecting the success of measures taken to enhance the product
offer and distribution. Our order backlog stands at almost EUR5.4 billion and continues to
lend a high level of long-term visibility, notably on the video side. Our recommendation
of an 8% rise in dividend to 1.08 euros per share reflects our confidence in the future of
our business.

Our industry is continuing to grow, albeit at a lesser pace than in the past decade.
Several markets are still developing at a high pace – notably Russia, Central Asia and
Africa, where we already enjoy strong positions, and Asia Pacific and Latin America, where
we are actively developing our footprint, both organically, with, for example, the
procurement of EUTELSAT 65 West A announced today, and via targeted acquisitions. Our
focus will be on expanding our presence in the markets and applications with the highest
potential for growth on the back of a targeted fleet development plan, complemented where
appropriate by external growth opportunities.

On the basis of our current in orbit deployment plan phasing, organic revenue growth
is expected to be over 2.5% for the current year, and an average of over 5% for the two
subsequent years until 30 June 2016. Our EBITDA margin should remain at the high level of
around 77%, and our dividend payout in the 65-75% range.”

VIDEO APPLICATIONS (68.5% of revenues)

Revenues from Video Applications, Eutelsat’s largest business activity, rose 4.0% to
EUR865.6 million, reflecting dynamic sales across the Group’s key video neighbourhoods.

Growth was in particular driven by two video neighbourhoods:

        - The 7degree(s)/8degree(s) West neighbourhood serving broadcasters in the
          Middle East and North Africa was dynamic, with the number of TV channels up 24%
          year-on-year to 662 (+128). It benefited from refreshed and expansion capacity on the
          EUTELSAT 7 West A satellite, launched in October 2011 which has generated additional
          business with clients that include Al Jazeera, Gulfsat, MBC, Nilesat and Noorsat.
          Resources at this neighbourhood will be further reinforced in the first half of fiscal
          year 2013-2014 with the redeployment of HOT BIRD 13A to 7/8degree(s) West (to be
          renamed EUTELSAT 8 West C). This neighbourhood also contributed significantly to the
          company's strong backlog, with significant multi-year multi-transponder contracts
          signed with anchor customers on EUTELSAT 8 West B well in advance of its launch in
          third quarter 2015.
        - The 16degree(s) East neighbourhood, serving broadcasters in Africa, Indian
          Ocean Islands and Central Europe. Among others, additional contracts were signed with
          SBB and Pink International (Serbia) to support their continuing growth. Channels
          broadcasting from this position rose by 17% during the year to reach 666 (+96) at 30
          June 2013.

Revenue growth was also supported by:

        - Contract renewals at the Group's leading broadcasting neighbourhood at
          13degree(s) East. The number of channels broadcast by the three high-power HOT BIRD
          satellites at this position stood at 1,082 at 30 June 2013, including 145 HD channels
          (+9%) giving a 13.4% HD penetration rate (up from 12.2% a year earlier). The HOT BIRD
          neighbourhood was also further consolidated as a leading digital infrastructure in
          terms of the installed base of Direct-to-Home antennas in key markets, notably Italy
          and Poland.
        - The extension of contracts at 36degree(s) East with MultiChoice, an anchor
          customer, on the African beam of EUTELSAT 36B.
        - Growth at the 9degree(s) East position with good sales momentum of the
          KabelKiosk platform of digital channels and services in German-speaking markets.

Finally, the year also saw the consolidation of the Group’s partnership with RSCC in
Russia following the completion of long-term lease contracts for capacity on satellites
expected to be launched in fourth quarter 2013 to two new video positions, at 56degree(s)
East (Express-AT1 for Siberia) and 140degree(s) East (Express-AT2 for Far East Russia),
providing Eutelsat with coverage of the entire Russian Federation. Multi-year
multi-transponder contracts with TricolorTV for capacity on both satellites were announced
in July 2013.

Channel growth and HDTV roll-out were robust across the fleet. The channel count stood
at 4,661 at 30 June 2013, up from 4,261 a year earlier (400 new channels or 9.4% growth).
The number of HD channels also increased, reaching 419 at 30 June 2013, up 21.1%, from 346
a year earlier. HD now accounts for 9% of total channels broadcast by Eutelsat’s
satellites, up from 8.1% a year earlier.

DATA AND VALUE-ADDED SERVICES (20.0% of revenues)

Data Services revenues stood at EUR187.5 million (+1.3%), reflecting the integration
of EUTELSAT 172A into the fleet.

The take-up of the additional capacity provided by EUTELSAT 21B and EUTELSAT 70B was
slower than expected. Markets for point-to-point services remain challenging as a
consequence of terrestrial network (fibre) deployment and the increase in supply of
satellite capacity, notably in Africa.

Demand continues to be dynamic for corporate networks and mobility in fast-growing
regions, notably Africa and Asia Pacific, with new and renewal contracts signed with
customers that include Algerie Telecom for VSAT networks across Algeria, and Australian
Satellite Communications for Panasonic Avionics Corporation, the world leader in in-flight
entertainment.

Revenues from Value-Added Services, which includes broadband services targeting
consumers and businesses, increased by 30.7% to EUR65.3 million.

Broadband services on KA-SAT performed strongly, reflecting the on-going success of
intensified marketing efforts combined with the enhanced broadband offer launched in
February 2013 (with download speeds of up to 20Mbps and upload speeds of up to 6Mbps). A
total of 91,000 terminals (excluding pre-KA-SAT) were activated at 30 June 2013 (from
39,000 at 30 June 2012, on a comparable basis). Distributors in Western Europe,
specifically France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain and the UK were the major contributors
to take-up of the consumer broadband offer. Traction was also gained with new distributors
in other regions including Turkey and Russia. The targeted development of the distribution
network continues.

On the professional side, the Group also developed its product offering, and secured
landmark opportunities such as the deployment of 12,600 terminals in the Ukraine during
national parliamentary elections and the signature of a contract with a Libyan customer
using two of KA-SAT’s beams to provide 1.6 Gbp/s.

Mobile connectivity services for maritime and aeronautical markets also contributed to
growth in Value Added Services. The maritime segment is served by Eutelsat’s WINS
subsidiary which provides capacity and services for on-board GSM and Internet
connectivity. In the market for in-flight connectivity, Eutelsat launched the Eutelsat Air
Access service in Europe in the Ka-band, with a first contract signed for Aer Lingus’
medium-haul fleet.

MULTI-USAGE (11.5% of revenues)

Revenues from Multi-usage services, which comprise capacity leased to governments and
administrations, were flat, at EUR145.4 million. This reflected the outcome during the
third quarter of the 2012-2013 fiscal year of negotiations for renewals which were
adversely impacted by US federal budget sequestration. It was offset by new contracts,
although fewer than expected, and by the integration of EUTELSAT 172A into the fleet.

OTHER AND NON-RECURRING REVENUES

Other revenues comprised contributions from activity related to service contracts with
partners, some sales of equipment and the Group’s foreign exchange hedging programme. They
amounted to EUR10.4 million at 30 June 2013.

Non-recurring revenues included late delivery indemnities for satellites launched
during the fiscal year or soon to be launched. They amounted to EUR9.8 million at 30 June
2013.

OPERATIONAL AND LEASED TRANSPONDERS

The number of transponders leased on Eutelsat’s fleet grew during the fiscal year by
4.8% to 635 at 30 June 2013. The fill rate stood at 74.0% at 30 June 2013, compared to
75.6% a year earlier, reflecting the entry into service of three satellites, two of which
(EUTELSAT 21B, EUTELSAT 70B) brought significant incremental capacity.

Note: KA-SAT’s 82 spot beams are considered transponder equivalents. The satellite’s
fill rate is considered to be at 100% when 70% of the capacity is taken up.

BACKLOG ABOVE EUR5 BILLION (92% VIDEO )

The order backlog stood at EUR5.37 billion at 30 June 2013, equivalent to 4.2 times
2012-2013 revenues. The backlog represents future revenues from capacity lease agreements,
and can include contracts for satellites not yet in operation.

        As of June 30                                     2011     2012    2013

strong FINANCIAL performance

High level of EBITDA margin maintained, despite increased investment

Group EBITDA rose by 4.0% to EUR995.3 million. It reflects on one hand tight cost
control maintained for ongoing operations and on the other, the impact of the increase in
resources dedicated to reinforcing the Group’s commercial activity, including the opening
of offices in Dubai, Johannesburg and Singapore, the development of consumer and
professional services on KA-SAT as well as the development of KabelKiosk and mobility
services.

3. Number of transponders leased on satellites in stable orbit

The EBITDA margin remains at a high level with a 77.5% outturn.

Group share of net income stood at EUR354.9 million, up 8.8% and representing 27.6% of
revenues. It reflected:

        - Higher level of EBITDA (+4.0%);
        - Increased depreciation (+EUR35.7 million) mainly due to the full year effect
          of the two satellites launched in the first half of 2011-2012 (EUTELSAT 7 West A and
          EUTELSAT 16A) and the inclusion into the fleet of EUTELSAT 21B, EUTELSAT 70B and
          EUTELSAT 172A during the 2012-2013 fiscal year;
        - Other operating income / (charges) of EUR30.8 million, mostly related to the
          settlement of a litigation during the fiscal year;
        - Higher financial result (+EUR12.0 million) due to the non-recurrence of a
          one-off item in the previous year, not entirely offset by the increased financial
          interest on the Group's indebtedness, linked partially to a new EUR300 million bond;
        - Higher income from associates (+EUR2.8 million) with strong performance from
          Hispasat;
        - Increase in income tax expense of EUR26.3 million, mainly due to the tougher
          tax environment in France, resulting in an effective tax rate of 37.0% in 2012-2013
          (versus 35.6% in 2011-2012).

SUSTAINED HIGH NET CASH FLOW FROM OPERATING ACTIVITIES

Net cash flows from operating activities amounted to EUR816 million (64% of revenues)

The Group saw an increase of EUR119 million (+17.1%) in net cash flows from operating
activities, to EUR816 million, representing 64% of revenues. This was due to higher
EBITDA, lower taxes paid (EUR33 million less), the above mentioned litigation settlement,
and limited working capital outflows.

Operating free cash flow amounted to EUR166 million, a decline of 20.7% on the
previous year. This mainly reflects the acquisition of EUTELSAT 172A, closed in September
2012, for US$228 million and the acquisition in April 2013 of 6% of Hispasat’s share
capital for approximately EUR56 million.

Diversification of financing supports strong financial position

Over fiscal year 2012-2013, the Group further diversified its funding sources:

        - In October 2012, it successfully raised EUR300 million through the
          issuance of a new 10-year bond at the Eutelsat S.A. level. The coupon is 3.125%.
        - At 30 June 2013, the Group had drawn a total of US$54.9 million on a US$66.2
          million export credit facility signed in May 2012 with the US Ex-Im Bank
          (Export-Import Bank of the United States) for the partial financing of a satellite
          programme. The facility will be repaid through 17 semi-annual instalments from
          November 2013 to November 2021. The facility bears interest at a fixed rate of 1.71%.
        - On 25 April 2013, Eutelsat Communications entered into two separate bank loan
          agreements covered by the Office national du ducroire (ONDD), the Belgian export
          credit agency.
             - The first agreement, for a total amount of EUR121 million, is an 11.5 year
             amortising facility (the first instalment will be repaid three years after
             signing) bearing interest at an all-in rate of 2.07%[7]. It will be used to
             finance the construction of a satellite.
             - The second agreement, for a total amount of EUR87 million, is an 11.5 year
             amortising facility (the first instalment will be repaid three years after
             signing) bearing interest at an all-in rate of 2.23%[7]. It will be used to
             finance a launcher.
             - At 30 June 2013, EUR95 million in total were drawn under the two
             facilities.

8% INCREASE IN dividend

On 30 July 2013, the Board of Directors agreed to submit for approval at the 7
November 2013 Annual Meeting of Shareholders a dividend of 1.08 euros per share, up from
1.00 euro for fiscal year 2011-2012.

This represents an increase of 8% over the previous year and a 67% of Group share of
net income pay-out ratio, in line with Eutelsat’s commitment to offer an attractive level
of remuneration to its shareholders.

OUTLOOK

Revenues (at constant currency and excluding non-recurring revenues)

Based on a nominal satellite deployment plan, the Group targets organic revenue growth
above 2.5% for the current year. With the deployment of additional capacity, mainly in
2014 and 2015, average revenue growth should be above 5% for the two subsequent years to
30 June 2016.

EBITDA

The EBITDA margin is targeted at around 77% for each fiscal year until 2016.

Active and targeted investment policy

The Group will continue to pursue a targeted investment policy. Average investments
will stand at around EUR550 million a year over the three fiscal years to 30 June 2016.
This includes capital expenditures and payments under export credit facilities and under
long-term lease agreements on third party capacity.

Sound financial structure

The group will maintain a sound financial structure to support its investment grade
rating. Over the long term, it aims at a net debt / EBITDA below 3.3x.

Attractive shareholder remuneration

The Group remains committed to sharing its profits with its shareholders over the
fiscal years 2013-2016, with a pay-out ratio of 65% to 75% of Group share of net income.

IN-ORBIT renewal and expansion programME update

Eutelsat Communications will continue to pursue an expansion programme targeted at
fast-growing markets, including the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America, while
reinforcing its presence in longstanding European markets, and will continue to optimise
its fleet with the redeployment of current in-orbit resources and new satellites. While
satellites launched over the fiscal year 2012-2013 were oriented towards Data Services,
the deployment plan until June 2016 is largely focused on Video Applications.
