PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 -- Following the change in the Group's year-end,
fiscal 2012 is a transition year
covering the 15-month period from October 1, 2011 to December 31, 2012.



This press release concerns revenue for the final quarter of the fiscal
year,
covering the period from October 1 to December 31, 2012.



I) Fimalac's consolidated revenue



In line with the applicable accounting standards, Fitch is no longer
fully
consolidated by the Fimalac Group because it is 50%-owned by the Group.
As a
result, it no longer contributes to Fimalac's consolidated revenue,
which now
corresponds primarily to the revenue generated by Vega's entertainment
venue
management business and to the rental revenue derived from the Group's
real
estate assets.





Consolidated revenue for the three months from October 1 to December 31,
2012
amounted to EUR11.8 million compared with EUR9.4 million for the
year-earlier
period. As earlier reported, consolidated revenue for the twelve months
from
October 1, 2011 to September 30, 2012 came to EUR30.3 million versus
EUR23.8 million
for the comparable period (i.e. the Group's prior fiscal year).
Consequently,
consolidated revenue for the fifteen months ended December 31,
2012,
corresponding to the transition period following the change in the Group's
year-end, totaled EUR42.1 million.



II) Fitch's revenue



As previously reported, Fitch's revenue for the twelve months to
September
30, 2012 amounted to EUR621.9 million ($805.5 million) versus
EUR525.7 million
($732.7 million) for the comparable period, representing an increase of
12.7%
like-for-like (based on a comparable scope of consolidation and at
constant
exchange rates).



Fitch enjoyed an increasingly fast pace of growth over the last quarters
and the
year ended on an excellent performance, with revenue for the three
months to
December 31, 2012 up 23.4% as reported and 19.7% like-for-like at EUR167.4
million
($217.3 million) versus EUR135.7 million ($181.5 million) for the same
period of
2011. Growth accelerated across main regions, with like-for-like
increases of
17.8% in North America, 35.3% in Latin America, 18.7% in the Asia-Pacific
region
and 18.6% in the Europe-Middle East-Africa (EMEA), region that is now on a
more
similar growth trajectory to the other regions.



Revenue for the 15-month transition period ended December 31, 2012
came to
EUR789.3 million ($1,022.8 million).



III) Fitch's acquisition of 7city



As announced on January 24, 2013, Fitch Group has recently acquired
7city, a
leading provider of learning and development solutions for the
financial
services industry. Based in London with offices in New York,
Singapore and
Dubai, 7city has over 150 employees.



Fitch Group's strategy for this acquisition is to combine 7city with its
Fitch
Training unit to form Fitch 7city Learning, a global leader in
finance,
financial analysis and credit risk analysis training.



Fitch 7city Learning will be a third business segment for Fitch Group,
alongside
Fitch Ratings and Fitch Solutions (research and analytics). It
represents a
natural diversification, targeting the same financial community and
leveraging
Fitch's expertise and global footprint.



IV) Upcoming results announcements



Results for fiscal 2012 - covering the fifteen months ended December 31,
2012 -
will be published after the Board meeting scheduled for March 26, 2013.
