SYSTRA merges with INEXIA and XELIS to create the world’s leading provider of public transport engineering infrastructure solutions

According to Group Chairman, Pierre VERZAT, “SYSTRA’s mission revolves around transport based
societal issues with the development of worldwide sustainable and collective mobility solutions. We
design urban and suburban flows every day and what we do helps to improve the lives of local
populations.”

The merger between SYSTRA, INEXIA, the SNCF engineering subsidiary, and XELIS, the RATP
engineering subsidiary will be effective from 1st July 2012. Progress on the merger has been rapid
since the October 2010 announcement that the RAPT-SNCF had agreed to the reorganisation of the
SYSTRA Group.

The combined expertise of SYSTRA, INEXIA and XELIS makes the Group the leading provider of public
transport infrastructure solutions, and the undisputed leader in fields such as high-speed rail,
renovation of existing rail networks, metro system automation and tunnel construction in complex
urban environments.

SYSTRA is ranked N° 2 worldwide in international urban and railway transport engineering solutions.

“With almost 3,000 contracts being implemented worldwide and a presence in 150 countries and 350
towns, SYSTRA is an amazing French success story, an example of France’s technical expertise in this
field with remarkable operators such as RAPT and SNCF, our founder shareholders. SYSTRA is the
proof that France can hold its own on international markets.”

A clear growth strategy

SYSTRA’s strategic plan is clear – to double turnover within 5 years by focusing on 4 priority fields: growth
in “mass transit and rail”, the Group’s traditional market and core business; maintaining its leadership in
France; continuing its strong growth on international markets to become a global player and; maintaining
stable economic performance.

The amalgamation of the 3 entities has taken SYSTRA Group turnover from €257.8m in 2010 to €416m in
2011. The order book stands at an all time high of €807m, half of which is in France and the rest on
international markets.

The net profit ratio is € 23.5m,that is 5.7%.

“Global leaders must be profitable to attract the best talent, to resist market fluctuations and to invest in
leading edge management systems” said Bruno SCHMITT, Executive Vice-President Finance &
Administration.

An ambitious but realistic objective
