(IFRS, audited)

As a reminder, in 2019, Vivendi applied a new accounting standard:

   -- IFRS 16 -- Leases: in accordance with IFRS 16, the impact of the change 
      of accounting standard was recorded in the opening balance sheet as of 
      January 1, 2019. In addition, Vivendi applied this change of accounting 
      standard to the Statement of Financial Position, Statement of Earnings 
      and Statement of Cash Flows in 2019; therefore, the data relative to 
      prior years is not comparable. 

As a reminder, in 2018, Vivendi applied two new accounting standards:

   -- IFRS 15 -- Revenues from Contracts with Customers: in accordance with 
      IFRS 15, as from 2017, Vivendi applied this change of accounting standard 
      to revenues. The data presented below with respect to fiscal year 2016 
      are historical and therefore not restated; and 
   -- IFRS 9 -- Financial Instruments: in accordance with IFRS 9, as from 2018, 
      Vivendi applied this change of accounting standard to the Statement of 
      Earnings and Statement of Comprehensive Income restating its opening 
      balance sheet as of January 1, 2018; therefore, the data relative to 
      prior years in this report is not comparable.

   1. The non-GAAP measures of Income from operations, EBITA, Adjusted net 
      income, Net Cash Position (or Financial Net Debt), Cash flow from 
      operations (CFFO) and Cash flow from operations after interest and income 
      tax paid (CFAIT) should be considered in addition to, and not as a 
      substitute for, other GAAP measures of operating and financial 
      performance as presented in the Consolidated Financial Statements and the 
      related Notes, or as described in this Financial Report. Vivendi 
      considers these to be relevant indicators of the group's operating and 
      financial performance. Each of these indicators is defined in the 
      appropriate section of this Financial Report. In addition, it should be 
      noted that other companies may have definitions and calculations for 
      these indicators that differ from those used by Vivendi, thereby 
      affecting comparability. Furthermore, as of December 31, 2020, in the 
      context of the COVID-19 pandemic, Vivendi had not changed the definition 
      of these indicators, which are therefore comparable to fiscal year 2019. 
   2. With respect to fiscal year 2015, Vivendi paid an ordinary dividend of 
      EUR3 per share, i.e., an aggregate dividend payment of EUR3,951 million. 
      This amount included EUR2,588 million paid in 2016 (EUR1,318 million for 
      the second interim dividend of EUR1 per share and EUR1,270 million 
      representing the balance of EUR1 per share) and EUR1,363 million paid in 
      2015 (first interim dividend of EUR1 per share).
