1. 2014 HALF YEAR BUSINESS REPORT
1.1. PRELIMINARY NOTE
Readers are invited to peruse the information set out herein on the Group's financial position and results
together with the Group's consolidated half-year financial statements and the notes to the consolidated
half-year financial statements as of June 30, 2014 set out in Chapter 2 of this 2014 half-year financial
report, as well as the Group's consolidated financial statements and the notes to the consolidated financial
statements as of December 31, 2013 set out in paragraph 4.1 of the 2013 Registration Document.

Pursuant to Regulation (EC) 1606/2002 of July 19, 2002 on the application of international accounting
standards, the consolidated accounts of Bureau Veritas for the first half of 2014 (H1 2014) and the first half
of 2013 (H1 2013) were drawn up in accordance with IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards)
guidelines, as adopted by the European Union.

1.2. HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PERIOD
In the first half of 2014, the Group carried out a number of acquisitions, mainly in North America and South
America. These acquisitions have increased the Group's exposure to the petroleum, offshore, automotive
and food sectors:
Maxxam Analytics (January), the market leader in testing, inspection and certification in Canada;
Jyutaku (April), a Japanese company specializing in construction conformity assessment services;
Quiktrak (April), a US company specializing in vehicle and agricultural machinery stock audit services;
Andes Control (April), a Chilean company specializing in chemical analytical and testing services
related to food and environmental safety;
DTI (June), a US leader in the inspection of offshore subsea and completion equipment used in drilling
operations.

Since the end of the period, the Group has acquired two more companies:
Sistema PRI (July), a Brazilian company specializing in project management assistance for
construction, infrastructure and energy projects;
Analysts Inc. (August), a US company specializing in oil condition monitoring.

The combined annual revenue for the acquired companies is close to EUR 290 million, equivalent to more
than 7% of the Group's 2013 revenue.

Attributable net profit 154.0 170.2 (9.5)%
1.3.1. REVENUE
Revenue for the first half of 2014 (H1 2014) totaled EUR 1,967.4 million, up 0.5% relative to H1 2013.
Acquisitions contributed 5.2%. This included the companies acquired in H1 2014, i.e. Maxxam
(IVS/Commodities/Consumer Products), Quiktrak and Andes Control (GSIT), DTI (Industry) and
Jyutaku (Construction), as well as those acquired in 2013 and consolidated for the full year: Sievert
and LVQ-WP (Industry), KBI and CKM (Construction) and OTI (Commodities).
Organic growth in H1 2014 was 1.8%. It was 0.9% in the second quarter, a level below the Group's
expectations for three reasons:
The unfavorable economic climate in Europe, particularly in France, had a stronger than expected
impact on the Industry (organic growth at +3.6% in H1 2014), In-Service Inspection & Verification
(+3.5%), Construction (+1.7%) and Certification (-1.0%) businesses;
Organic growth in the Commodities business was negative in H1 2014, at -1.3%. The good level of
growth in Oil & Petrochemicals (+8.9%) and Agriculture (+11.7%) has been more than offset by a
lower than expected "seasonal" recovery in the Metals & Minerals business;
Toys and textiles testing activities were affected by low levels of demand from US client-retailers. In
contrast, the Consumer Products business delivered organic growth of 5.4% in H1 2014, driven by
the Electrical & Electronics (+9.6%) segment, which benefited from strong demand for wireless
technologies.
As expected, there was a further contraction in the Government Services & International Trade (GSIT)
business (organic growth of -8.4% in H1 2014). The comparison base is unfavorable owing to two
contracts (Angola and Ivory Coast) that came to an end in H2 2013. The verification of conformity
activity business has been disrupted recently due to the conflict in Iraq.

The Marine business posted strong organic growth of 7.8% over the period, in both the ships in service
and new construction segments.



Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 4
Currency fluctuations had a negative impact of 6.5%. Most currencies declined in value against the
euro, particularly those of Latin American countries (Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile) and other
major countries (Australia, Japan, Canada, United States).
1.3.2. OPERATING PROFIT
Operating profit for the period was EUR 278.5 million, down 1.6% compared with H1 2013.
1.3.3. ADJUSTED OPERATING PROFIT
Adjusted operating profit is defined as operating profit before income and expenses relative to acquisitions
and other non-recurring items.

(in millions of euros) H1 2014 H1 2013 Change
Operating profit 278.5 283.1 (1.6)%

Goodwill impairment 1.5 -
Acquisition-related costs 0.1 (0.1)
Disposals and restructuring (0.3) 3.8
Adjusted operating profit
310.0 313.2 (1.0)%
Other operating expenses totaled EUR 31.5 million, compared with EUR 30.1 million in H1 2013, and
comprised:
EUR 30.2 million for the amortization of acquisition intangibles (up from EUR 26.4 million in H1 2013),
following the acquisition of Maxxam;
EUR 1.5 million for impairment of goodwill relating to the IVS business in Portugal.
In H1 2013, the disposal of the infrastructure business in Spain and the related restructuring process
generated EUR 3.5 million of exceptional expense.
Adjusted operating profit was EUR 310 million, down 1% compared with H1 2013, but up 8% at constant
currencies.

The adjusted operating margin was 15.8% in H1 2014, an increase of 10 basis points at constant
currencies compared with H1 2013. The negative impact of exchange rates was 30 basis points.

Finance costs, gross (38.3) (30.7)
Income from cash and cash equivalents 0.7 0.6
Finance costs, net (37.6) (30.1)
Foreign exchange gain/(loss) (0.2) (1.2)
Interest cost on pension plans (1.6) (1.6)
Other (1.1) (0.8)
Net financial expense (40.5) (33.7)
Net financial expense of EUR 40.5 million in H1 2014 showed an increase on the EUR 33.7 million reported
in the year-earlier period.
The increase of EUR 6.8 million mainly related to the higher finance costs after additional debt was taken
on to fund new acquisitions, although the average interest rate fell.
1.3.5. INCOME TAX EXPENSE
Consolidated income tax expense stood at EUR 77.1 million in H1 2014, compared with EUR 73 million in
H1 2013. The effective tax rate (ETR), calculated by dividing income tax expense by the pre-tax profit,
worked out at 32.4% in H1 2014, compared with 29.3% in H1 2013. The adjusted effective tax rate stood at
31.6%.
The increase relative to the previous year is mainly attributable to the increase in taxes payable in France.
1.3.6. ATTRIBUTABLE NET PROFIT
Net profit attributable to owners of the Company was EUR 154.0 million. Earnings per share stood at EUR
0.35 in H1 2014, compared with EUR 0.39 in H1 2013.
1.3.7. ATTRIBUTABLE ADJUSTED NET PROFIT
Attributable adjusted net profit is defined as attributable net profit adjusted for other operating expenses

Marine
Organic growth in revenue was 7.8% in the first half of 2014.
The ships in service activity (57% of H1 2014 revenue in the division) benefited from growth of 4.5% in the
fleet classed by Bureau Veritas. On June 30, 2014, the fleet was made up of 10,688 ships and represented
99.1 million gross tons (GRT).
Revenue from the classification and certification of new ships activities (43% of revenue) also rose. The
order book totaled GRT 18.2 million (+26% relative to June 30, 2013). New orders remained high, at 5.2
million tons.
The adjusted operating margin was 26.7%, compared with 27.2% in H1 2013.





Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 7
In the second half of the year, the ships-in-service business should continue to grow, despite a tougher
comparison base. The visibility on the business in relation to new construction projects has improved as the
order book has filled up. The Group will continue its expansion strategy, prioritizing the liquefied natural gas
and offshore markets.
Industry
Revenue rose by 8.6% on a constant currency basis, comprised of organic growth of 3.6% and acquisitions
growth of 5.0% (Sievert, LVQ, Carab Tekniva).
The performance of this business reflects weak activity levels in four countries: France, Colombia, South
Africa and Kazakhstan, which represent 20% of revenue and posted a 19% decline on a constant currency
basis. Other regions posted growth of 11%, driven by the United States, Asia and the Middle East.
The adjusted operating margin was up by 0.2 points, at 14.8%, thanks to an improvement in the activity
mix.
In the second half of the year, this business should benefit from a pick-up in activity on delayed projects in
Kazakhstan and in Colombia, and the start of new contracts. The Group is strengthening its marketing
strategy and pursuing its developments in new market segments, such as shale gas, drilling and rail.
In-Service Inspection & Verification (IVS)
Revenue increased by 18.9% on a constant currency basis, comprising organic growth of 3.5% and
acquisitions-related growth of 15.4%, coming from Maxxam's environmental analysis activities.
Growth in the Middle East, Latin America and Asia has been strong. It improved in the United States in the
second quarter, following the very harsh winter.
Growth regions offset the weakness of activity in Europe (72% of revenue for this business in H1 2014).
The adjusted operating margin improved by 1 point to 11.4%, thanks to the lean management initiatives
rolled out in France.
For the rest of the 2014 financial year, growth should continue in the regions undergoing rapid expansion,
such as Latin America, the Middle East and Asia.
Construction
Revenue rose by 3.2% on a constant currency basis, comprised of organic growth of 1.7% and growth
related to the acquisitions made in Asia of 1.5%.
Activity in Europe, particularly France (51% of revenue) remained in decline. The Group posted double-digit
growth in China and the Middle East.
It has enjoyed commercial success in fast-growing regions, with a contract to oversee the construction of a
metro line in Singapore and for third-party verification of the construction of the metro in Riyadh.
The operating margin increased by 1.1 points to 13.0%, thanks to an improvement in the geographical mix
and the roll out of lean management in France.
The Group does not expect to see improvement in France this year. Growth should come from countries
undergoing rapid expansion, notably China (for industrial and commercial facilities) and Brazil (acquisition
of Sistema PRI) and the start of new contracts in Singapore and Riyadh.
Certification
Revenue was down 1.0% on a constant currency basis.
The business was impacted by the phasing out of carbon certification under the Kyoto protocol. Activity
levels related to conventional QHSE schemes were flat. However, demand was strong for services related
to the automotive and aeronautics supply chains, and for second-party audits.
The 1.3 point contraction in the adjusted operating margin to 16.6% stemmed from the phasing out of
carbon certification.
For the rest of the year, this business should benefit from the start of the re-certification cycle for
conventional QHSE schemes and continued expansion into new markets (nuclear, timber supply chain,
medical equipment).



Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 8
Commodities
Revenue was up by 6.3% on a constant currency basis, comprising organic growth of -1.3% and
acquisitions-related growth of 7.6%, coming from the oil activities of Maxxam and OTI in Canada.
The Oil & Petrochemicals segment (48% of revenue for this business in H1 2014) is growing strongly in
Asia. The Agriculture segment (10% of revenue) benefited from expansion in Canada and the recovery of
activity in Eastern Europe.
The "seasonal" recovery in the Metals & Minerals business (31% of revenue) was below expectations.
The Coal segment (11% of revenue) was impacted by the slowdown in Australia and the strikes affecting
the sector in South Africa.
The 0.4 point drop in the operating margin to 11.2% was attributable to the Metals & Minerals segment.
Visibility on the recovery of the Metals & Minerals segment remains low. Growth in the Oil &
Petrochemicals segment should come from new services (marine fuel testing, shale oil) and the expansion
of Maxxam's oil sands activities.
Consumer Products
Revenue was up by 9.8% on a constant currency basis, comprising organic growth of 5.4% and
acquisitions-related growth of 4.4%, coming from the food and DNA analysis activities of Maxxam in
Canada.
Toys testing and Textiles testing were impacted by low levels of demand from US client-retailers.
Growth was strong in activities related to wireless/mobile technologies in the Electrical & Electronics
products segment, and in audits and inspections in China and south Asia.
The food analysis activities also performed well.
The adjusted operating margin increased slightly to 22.9%.
In the second half of 2014, this business should benefit from new programs in the Textiles segment and
growth initiatives in the Smartworld, automotive, telephone accessories and food sectors.
Government Services & International Trade (GSIT)
Revenue fell by 5.9% on a constant currency basis, comprised of organic decline of 8.4% and acquisitions-
related growth of 2.5%, coming from Quiktrak.
The comparison base is unfavorable owing to two pre-shipment inspection contracts (Angola and Ivory
Coast) that came to an end in H2 2013. Single window contracts are currently being rolled out in Togo and
Armenia, in addition to verification of conformity programs in Ivory Coast and in Ghana. Diversification into
the automotive sector is also providing a source of growth, with the recovery of the European market and
the expansion of Quiktrak in North America.
The contraction in the adjusted operating margin of 4.3 points to 16.2% is attributable to the reduction in
pre-shipment inspection contract volumes.
In the second half of 2014, this division should benefit from a more favorable comparison base and the
start of new contracts. Verification and conformity activity could be disrupted by the conflict in Iraq.

Cash generated from operating activities (operating cash flow) stood at EUR 176.1 million in H1 2014,
compared with EUR 221.5 million in H1 2013. This decrease was attributable to the increase in working
capital requirements notably attributable to acquisitions, and higher tax payments.



Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 10
On June 30, 2014, WCR stood at EUR 453.8 million, or 11.1% of revenue over the past 12 months
including acquired entities, compared with EUR 361.3 million in June 2013. The deterioration was
attributable to acquisitions, currency fluctuations and unfavorable timing effect on certain items.
The EUR 37.8 million increase in tax payments was due to the higher rates applicable in France and
the extension of payment and refund periods.

Purchases of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets
In general, Bureau Veritas' inspection and certification activities are not particularly capital-intensive,
whereas analysis and laboratory testing activities require investment spending. These investments concern
the Consumer Products and Commodities businesses and certain customs-based scanner inspection
activities (GSIT business).
The Group's total capital expenditure (net of disposals) in property, plant and equipment and intangible
assets was EUR 63.2 million in H1 2014. The Group's capex-to-revenue ratio stood at 3.2%, slightly below
the 2013 level.

Adjusted net financial debt (after currency hedging instruments as defined in the calculation of banking
covenants) totaled EUR 1,985.5 million on June 30, 2014, compared with EUR 1,328.4 million on
December 31, 2013.
The decrease in the Groups cash and equivalents reflects the more effective centralization, at Company
level, of the amounts of cash on hand spread among the subsidiaries, and the favorable changes in
regulations in certain countries, notably China. The balance at June 30, 2014 comprises more than 73% of
the cash and equivalents located in 65 countries where the establishment of loans or current accounts is
difficult or impossible (for example in Brazil, South Korea and India). In these countries, cash is repatriated
when dividends are paid or when amounts due under the Groups internal franchise agreements are
settled.

Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 14
Guarantees and pledges
Guarantees and pledges granted as of June 30, 2014 and for the full-year 2013 are set out below:


Guarantees and pledges include bank guarantees and parent company guarantees:
bank guarantees: these essentially include market guarantees like bid bonds as well as performance
bonds. Bid bonds enable the beneficiary to protect itself in the event of a withdrawal of a commercial
offer, a refusal to sign a contract or a failure to provide the guarantees requested. Performance bonds
guarantee the buyer that the Group will meet its contractual obligations as provided under contract.
Performance bonds are usually issued at a percentage (around 10%) of the value of the contract; and
parent company guarantees: these mainly concern market guarantees that provide assurance to the
client that the Group will perform all of its contractual obligations.
On June 30, 2014, guarantees and pledges granted broke down as follows:

Adjustments and increases in acquisition prices
On June 30, 2014, the Group had no significant off-balance sheet commitment related to external growth
(such as adjustments and increases in acquisition prices).
Sources of financing anticipated for future investments
The Group estimates that its financing needs for operations will be fully covered by its operating cash-
flows.
As of June 30, 2014, in order to finance acquisitions, the Group had the following resources stemming
from:
available cash flows after taxes, financial expenses and dividends;
cash and cash equivalents.
the EUR 264.9 million available in its credit lines:
- EUR 210 million from the 2012 Syndicated Loan (available amount of EUR 370.0 million on the
2012 Syndicated Loan less the outstanding amount (EUR 160.0 million) of the commercial paper
program),
- EUR 54.9 million (USD 75.0 million) from the 2013 US Private Placement, bearing in mind that the
use of this amount remains subject to the prior agreement of the investor.

The availability of these sources of financing, with the exception of commercial paper, is subject to
compliance with the Company's financial ratios, i.e. the Leverage Ratio and the Interest Cover Ratio
(defined above).

1.5. RISK FACTORS FOR THE REMAINING SIX MONTHS
OF THE FINANCIAL YEAR
Readers are invited to refer to the 2013 Registration Document of the company registered with the French
Financial Markets Authority on March 28, 2014 under the number D.14-0231 (paragraph 1.12. Risk
Factors).This paragraph includes information concerning the risk factors, the insurance and coverage of the
risks as well as the method used for the provisioning of the risks and legal disputes.
A detailed description of the financial and market risks for this six-month period is provided in Note 17 of
the Notes to the Consolidated Half-Year Financial Statements, presented in Chapter 2 - 2014 Half-Year
Consolidated Financial Statements of this Half-Year Financial Report.
With the exception of these points, no other risks or concerns are anticipated other than those presented in
these documents.
Legal, administrative, government and arbitrage procedures and investigations
In the normal course of business, the Group is involved in a large number of litigation or pre-litigation
proceedings seeking to establish the Groups professional liability in connection with services provided.
Although the Group pays careful attention to managing risks and to the quality of the services provided,
some services may give rise to claims that could result in adverse financial judgments.

The costs resulting from such proceedings form the amount given as a provision. These amounts are the
best estimate of the expenditure required to settle the present obligation at the end of the reporting period.
The costs which the Group ultimately incurs may exceed the amounts set aside to such provisions due to a
variety of factors such as the uncertain nature of the outcome of the dispute.
At the date of this half-year financial report, the Group is involved in the following principal proceedings:

Dispute concerning the construction of a hotel and commercial complex in Turkey
Bureau VeritasGozetimHizmetleri Ltd Sirketi (BVG) and the Turkish company Aymet are parties to a
dispute before the Commercial Court of Ankara relating to the construction of a hotel and business complex
in respect of which the parties concluded a contract in 2003. Aymet filed an action in 2008 claiming USD 63
million in damages from BVG for alleged failures in the performance of its project inspection and
supervision mission.

The documents presented to the court by BVG and Aareal Bank, which provided a loan for the project and
was engaged by Aymet in relation to the same project, as well as the legal advice provided by a
distinguished professor of Turkish law, support the position of the Company, i.e. that Aymets claims have
no proper legal or contractual foundation. In January and July 2009, the experts appointed by the judge
filed two reports that were unfavorable to BVG, followed in March 2014 by a third report that was still
unfavorable towards BVG.

BVG is challenging both the principle underlying the initial claims and the valuation of the damages
(specifically the alleged damages linked to loss of profits on the project over a total period of 10 years).

Procedurally, the third report of the experts, along with the two previous reports, did not take into account
the documentary evidence submitted by BVG and Aareal Bank and did not address the legal and
contractual issues that would enable any liability on the part of BVG to be established. After BVG filed its
response, the judge asked the experts to re-examine the case and issue a fourth report.

As of the date of this report, the outcome of this dispute is uncertain.




Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 16
Dispute concerning the Gabon Express airplane crash
Following the crash of an airplane of Gabon Express at Libreville on June 8, 2004, which caused the death
of 19 passengers and crew members and injuries to 11 persons, the General Director (at the time of the
crash) of Bureau Veritas Gabon SAU (BV Gabon), a subsidiary of the Company, was sued for involuntary
homicide and injury. The company BV Gabon has been sued for civil liability in Gabon.

To date, no quantified claim has been filed with the court and the division of liability is not yet known.
Essentially, the case has not yet begun, due to procedural difficulties. In particular, the Libreville Supreme
Court issued a decision on June 18, 2013,dismissing the appeals lodged by Bureau Veritas Gabon and its
former CEO. These appeals were filed before the Libreville Court of Appeal on July 21, 2011 and aimed
mainly to point out procedural errors, request the involvement of the insurers and insurance intermediaries
(brokers) of Gabon Express in the proceedings, as well as the presentation of the documents seized in
2004.
In September 2013, Bureau Veritas Gabon filed an appeal with the Libreville Supreme Court to overturn the
decision of June 18, 2013.
No decision had been issued as of the date of this report.

Based on the available insurance coverage, and on the information currently available, the Company, after
taking the opinions of its legal counsel into consideration, considers that this claim will not have a material
adverse impact on the Groups consolidated financial statements.


There are no other government, administrative, legal, or arbitration proceedings or investigations (including
any proceedings of which the Company is aware, pending, or with which the Group is threatened), likely to
have or to have had a material impact on the financial position or profitability of the Group within the last six
months.
1.6. RELATED-PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Readers are invited to refer to Note 18 - Related-party transactions represented in Chapter 2 2014
Condensed Half-Year Consolidated Financial Statements of this half-year financial report.
1.7. OUTLOOK
The Group expects organic growth improvement in H2 2014, from favorable comparables, start of new
contracts, catch up of delayed contracts and despite continuous softness in Europe and pending
Metals & Minerals recovery.

2014 revenue growth at constant currency should be above 9% with a strong contribution from acquisitions.
Year-to-date, the Group has completed 7 acquisitions representing close to EUR 290 million in annual
revenues. The profitability at constant currency should continue to improve gradually.

The Group confirms the objective to achieve revenue growth above 9% per year on average over the 2012-
2015 period, at constant exchange rates, but with a different mix than the one initially contemplated:
- Due to weakness in Metals & Minerals and European markets, average organic should be lower than
+6%.
- Based on the current pipeline and acquisitions already carried out, average external growth should be
higher than +4%.

The Group could achieve its objective of +100 basis points margin improvement in 2015 vs 2011, but has
decided recently to invest part of the profitability gains, generated notably through Excellence@BV, in
commercial initiatives to accelerate its future organic growth. As a consequence, the 2015 adjusted
operating margin should be around 17%.

In this context, the average growth of adjusted EPS for the period 2012-2015 should be in the +5-7% range
per year, due notably to tax rates increase and currency headwinds.

1.8. EVENTS AFTER THE END OF THE REPORTING
PERIOD
1.8.1. AWARD OF STOCK PURCHASE OPTIONS AND PERFORMANCE

opening price for the Company's shares on the 20 trading days preceding the grant date.
The stock purchase options and performance shares awarded are subject to a number of performance
conditions and also require a minimum period of service.
1.8.2. ACQUISITIONS
At the beginning of the third quarter of 2014, Bureau Veritas completed the acquisition of two companies:
Sistema PRI (July), a Brazilian company specializing in project management assistance for
construction, infrastructure and energy projects;
Analysts Inc. (August), a US company specializing in oil condition monitoring.

Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 24
Financing
On January 21, 2014, the Group launched a EUR 500 million bond issue. The seven-year bonds are
unrated and pay a coupon of 3.125%. This transaction enabled Bureau Veritas to further diversify its
sources of financing and support its expansion, notably with the acquisition of Maxxam Analytics, the
Canadian leader in laboratory analysis services.
In the first half, Bureau Veritas renegotiated its Syndicated Loan, which had been arranged in 2012 for a
period of five years for EUR 450 million. The agreement was amended to obtain improved financing
conditions and to extend the maturity from July 2017 to April 2019
Note 3: Summary of significant accounting policies
Basis of preparation
The 2014 condensed half-year consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with
IAS 34, Interim Financial Reporting, as adopted by the European Union. They should be read in
conjunction with the annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013, which were
prepared in accordance with IFRS as adopted by the European Union.
IFRS developments
The Group applies the standards effective for accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2014.
These are as follows:
IFRS 10, Consolidated Financial Statements;
IFRS 11, Joint Arrangements;
IFRS 12, Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities;
IAS 28 (revised), Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures;
Amendments to IAS 32, Financial Instruments: Presentation Offsetting Financial Assets and
Financial Liabilities;
Amendments to IAS 36, Recoverable Amount Disclosures for Non-Financial Assets;
Amendments to IAS 39, Novation of Derivatives and Continuation of Hedge Accounting.

These new standards and interpretations did not have a material impact on the condensed consolidated
financial statements at June 30, 2014.
Implementation of the "consolidation pack" changed the consolidation method for three Group entities (7
Layers Ritt China, Unicar GB Ltd and UCM Global Ltd). Since January 1, 2014, these entities are no longer
consolidated using proportional consolidation but using the equity method. The impact of the change in the
consolidation method is (0.8) million on the Group's cash and cash equivalents, and (1.1) million on
revenue for the period.
The standards, amendments and interpretations published by the IASB and pending adoption by the
European Union and not yet applied by the Group at June 30, 2014 are as follows:
Amendment to IAS 19, Employee Benefits;
Amendments to IAS 16 and IAS 38, Clarification of Acceptable Methods of Depreciation and
Amortization;
IFRIC 21, Levies (analysis ongoing).




Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 25
Preparation of half-year financial statements
Applicable accounting policies
The accounting policies used to prepare the condensed half-year consolidated financial statements are
consistent with those used to prepare the 2013 annual financial statements, except in the case of income
tax expense, which is calculated based on a projection for the full year, and costs relating to pension plans
and other long-term employee benefits.
Use of estimates
The preparation of financial statements in compliance with IFRS requires the use of certain key accounting
estimates. It also requires management to exercise its judgment in the process of applying the Company's
accounting policies.
The preparation of half-year financial statements requires the use of estimates and assumptions for the
same items as those described in the consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31,
2013, with the exception of income tax expense and pension plans and other long-term employee benefits,
for which the following estimation methods were applied:
Income tax expense:
Income tax expense for first-half 2014 was calculated based on a projection for the full year of the
expected weighted average tax rate by country, assuming taxable profit for the period;
Pension plans and other long-term employee benefits:
As no material changes have occurred, the expense in the income statement for the first half was
estimated based on the 2014 forecasts included in the actuary's reports at December 31, 2013.
The provision is adjusted in the event of a significant change in the discount rate, based on the
rate published at June 30.
Note 4: Seasonal fluctuations
Revenue, operating profit and cash flows are sensitive to seasonal fluctuations, with the Group typically
recording a stronger performance in the second half of the year.
Seasonal fluctuations in revenue and operating profit essentially concern the Consumer Products, In-
Service Inspection & Verification, and Certification businesses. In the Consumer Products business,
seasonality arises from the fact that end-consumers tend to concentrate the bulk of their purchases in the
closing stages of the calendar year. For the In-Service Inspection & Verification and Certification
businesses, this phenomenon results from clients' wish to obtain certification before the end of the fiscal
and corporate year (typically December 31). Profit is more sensitive to seasonal fluctuations than revenue,
due to a lower absorption of fixed costs in the first half of the year.
Cash flows are affected by:
the seasonal fluctuations in operating profit described above;
strong cyclical trends in working capital requirements, as the following three types of expenses
are incurred only in the first few months of the year:
insurance premiums,



Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 26
bonuses and profit-sharing payments, along with the related payroll charges (payable in
March),
income tax balances in respect of the previous financial period (payable during the first six
months of the year, at a date which varies according to the country concerned).

Note 7: Income tax expense
Consolidated income tax expense stood at EUR 77.1 million on June 30, 2014, compared with EUR 73
million on June 30, 2013. The effective tax rate (ETR), calculated by dividing income tax expense by the
pre-tax profit, worked out to 32.4% on June 30, 2014 compared with 29.3% on June 30, 2013. The
adjusted effective tax rate stood at 31.6%.
The increase relative to the previous year is mainly attributable to the increase in taxes payable in France.
At both December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2014, deferred tax assets and liabilities were offset at the level of
each tax consolidation group.
Deferred taxes before offsetting at the level of taxable entities mainly relate to pension obligations, tax loss
carry forwards, customer relationships and non-competition agreements acquired within the scope of
business combinations, as well as provisions for disputes and accrued payables and fair value adjustments
on financial instruments.

Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 28
In 2011, Bureau Veritas identified cash-generating units (CGUs) for its Construction, Certification and
Industry businesses.
Its In-Service Inspection and Verification business continues to be dominated by local markets and is
divided into country-specific CGUs. Goodwill is allocated to:
- groups of CGUs for the Industry, Construction, Certification and Commodities businesses;
- CGUs for the Consumer Products and In-Service Inspection & Verification businesses.
The net carrying amount of goodwill is assessed at least yearly as part of the annual accounts closing
process. At June 30, goodwill was tested for impairment whenever:
- the revised projected earnings of a group of CGUs, for non-IVS operating segments, or of an IVS
CGU for the current year were under the original forecasts, thereby pointing to possible impairment. In this
respect, the Commodities and IVS businesses in Portugal were tested;
- businesses were being closely monitored at the end of the previous financial period, whose
projected earnings were under the original forecasts. Only the IVS business in Spain was tested.
The method used to determine the recoverable amount of a CGU is the same as that described in the
consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013, except as regards the process of
preparing budgets and long-term forecasts, which are approved by management at the end of the year for
all businesses.
The present value of future cash flows was revised to take into account the latest available earnings
forecasts and any changes in estimates over the mid- to long-term for each CGU concerned. The growth
rates used for long-term estimates remained unchanged from December 31, 2013, at 2%.
These assumptions are based on past experience and are consistent with the data used to prepare the
2015 plan, published in September 2011.
The Commodities business assets were tested, given their significance in the Group's balance sheet and
the current market environment for Metals and Minerals.
This market is currently experiencing a pronounced decline and explains lower revenue and forecast
operating profit for Commodities compared to the budget prepared at the end of 2013. The test that was
carried out led the Group to maintain the value of assets for Commodities.

The table below compares recoverable amounts to carrying amounts for the business tested for impairment
at June 30, 2014:


Business
(in millions
of euros)
Recoverable
amount
Carrying
amount

Impairment


Commodities World 1,711.0 997.0
0


In-Service Inspection and Verification Spain 53.0 29.0 0

Portugal 2.0 3.5 1.5



The test of the IVS business in Portugal led the Group to recognize a EUR 1.5 million impairment loss on
the EUR 2.9 million in total assets tested in light of the outlook for this market.
The discount rate used for the test on Spanish operations was 7.5%. This includes a specific country risk
premium which takes into account Spain's general economic climate. The discount rate is a post-tax rate
applied to net-of-tax future cash flows before external borrowing costs.
The long-term operating margin rate for Commodities is at 14.6%, and for IVS in Spain it is 5.5%.



Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 29
The table below shows the amounts of impairment on all tested intangible assets resulting from the
sensitivity of the Group's Commodities and In-Service Inspection & Verification (Spain) businesses to a
one-point rise in the discount rate and a one-point fall in the long-term growth rate and margin:

Business
Discount rate
+ 1 point
Growth rate

Commodities (World) 0 0 0
In-Service Inspection & Verification
(Spain) 0 0 0
NB: Theoretical write-down of all intangible assets subject to sensitivity tests in millions of euros based on changes in one
input only at any one time.


The additional sensitivity analysis carried out for the Commodities business shows that the recoverable
amount of tested assets remains higher than their carrying value, even when the discount rate is increased
+9%, or 2 points higher than the rate used for the test carried out on December 31, 2013.

The main item of goodwill recognized in the first-half of 2014 stemmed from the acquisition of Maxxam. It
amounted to EUR 197.7 million.
The residual unallocated goodwill is chiefly attributable to the human capital of the companies acquired and
the significant synergies expected to result from these acquisitions.
The Group's acquisitions were paid exclusively in cash.
The impact of these acquisitions on cash and cash equivalents for the period was as follows:
(in millions of euros) June 2014 June 2013
Purchase price of acquisitions (493,2) (49,8)
Cash and cash equivalents of acquired companies 18,4 4,6

The amount of EUR 477.9 million shown on the "Acquisitions of subsidiaries" line of the consolidated
statement of cash flows includes EUR 1.4 million in acquisition-related fees. This amount does not include
EUR 2 million of acquisition-related debt.
Unpaid contingent consideration
Contingent consideration for acquisitions carried out prior to January 1, 2014 expired during the first half of
2014. This had a positive EUR 1.4 million impact on the income statement in first-half 2014.

Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 32
Debt increased by EUR 644.7 million between December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2014. The rise in euro-
denominated debt chiefly results from financing for acquisitions and in particular the acquisition of Maxxam
Analytics in first-half 2014.
Future interest payments due were calculated by reference to the contractual maturity of the 2012
Syndicated Loan, i.e., April 2019.
Financing
The Group's financing consists of loans contracted with banks and other parties.
At June 30, 2014, virtually all of the Group's borrowings were made up of the following financing: US
Private Placement 2008 ("USPP 2008"), US Private Placement 2010 ("USPP 2010"), US Private
Placement 2011 & 2014 ("USPP 2011 & 2014"), US Private Placement 2013 ("USPP 2013"), a
Schuldschein ("SSD"), two bond issues dated May 2012 and January 2014, a syndicated loan ("2012
Syndicated Loan") and a commercial paper program.
The amounts still available under these facilities are detailed below.
Half of the available unconfirmed funds (USD 75 million) have been drawn down from the USPP 2013
facility.
EUR 80 million was drawn down from the EUR 450 million 2012 Syndicated Loan. At June 30, 2014,
available funds amounted to EUR 210 million, namely EUR 370 million under the Syndicated Loan less the
EUR 160 million raised under the commercial paper program.
Covenants
At June 30, 2014, the same financial covenants were in force as at December 31, 2013. The Group
complied with all such covenants at end-June 2014 and end-December 2013.
Currency risk
Short- and long-term bank borrowings can be analyzed as follows by currency (taking into account
currency hedging):
Currency (in millions of euros) June 2014 Dec 2013
US dollar (USD) 395.6 321.5
Euro (EUR) 1,712.5 1,144.6
Other currencies 16.7 12.3
Total 2,124.7 1,478.4

The USPP debt whose tranches in pounds sterling were converted into euros using a currency swap is
included on the Euro (EUR)" line.

Interest rate risk
At June 30, 2014, gross debt can be analyzed as follows:
Currency June 2014 Dec 2013
US dollar (USD) 1.57% 1.65%
Euro (EUR) 1.05% 1.55%

The contractual repricing dates for virtually all floating-rate borrowings are within six months. The reference
interest rates used are the Euribor for floating-rate and euro-denominated financing and the Libor for
floating-rate financing in US dollars.
The interest rates applicable to the Group's floating-rate borrowings and the margins at the end of the
reporting period are detailed below.

At December31, 2013 269.9 111.7 92.1 66.1

Guarantees given include bank guarantees and parent company guarantees.
At June 30, 2014, the Group considered that the risk of a cash outflow on these guarantees was low.
Provision for other liabilities and charges
The provision for other liabilities and charges recognized in the statement of financial position at June 30,
2014 takes into account the major claims discussed in section 1.5. "Risk factors for the remaining six
months of the financial year" in the business report.
Based on the insurance coverage in place and/or amounts currently provisioned, and in light of the latest
available information, Bureau Veritas does not believe that these disputes will have a material adverse
impact on its consolidated financial statements.

Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 35
Diluted earnings per share
Diluted earnings per share is calculated by adjusting the weighted average number of ordinary shares
outstanding to reflect the conversion of dilutive potential ordinary shares.
The Company has two categories of dilutive potential ordinary shares: stock options and performance
shares.
For stock options, a calculation is made in order to determine the number of shares that could have been
issued based on the exercise price and the fair value of the rights attached to the outstanding stock
options. The number of shares calculated as above is compared with the number of shares that would have
been issued if the stock options had been exercised.
Performance share grants are potential ordinary shares whose issue is contingent on beneficiaries
completing a minimum period of service as well as meeting a series of performance targets.

Fair value

NB: The following abbreviations are used to represent IAS 39 financial instrument categories:
HTM for held-to-maturity assets;
LR for loans and receivables;
FVPL for instruments at fair value through profit or loss (excluding accrued interest not yet due);
FVE for instruments at fair value through equity (excluding accrued interest not yet due);
AC for debt measured at amortized cost.

With the exception of the items listed below, the Group considers the carrying amount of the financial
instruments reported on the statement of financial position to approximate their fair value.
The fair value of current financial instruments such as SICAV mutual funds is their last known net asset
value (level 1 in the fair value hierarchy).
The fair value of cash, cash equivalents and bank overdrafts is their face value in euros or equivalent value
in euros translated at the closing exchange rate. Since these assets and liabilities are very short-term
items, the Group considers that their fair value approximates their carrying amount.



Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 37
The fair value of each of the Group's fixed-rate facilities (USPP 2008, USPP 2010, USPP 2011, SSD and
the two bond issues) is determined based on the present value of future cash flows discounted at the
appropriate market rate for the currency concerned (euros, pounds sterling or US dollars) at the end of the
reporting period, adjusted to reflect the Group's own credit risk. The fair value of the Group's floating-rate
facilities (2012 Syndicated Loan, USPP 2013, USPP 2014 and certain tranches of the SSD facility)
approximates their carrying amount. This corresponds to level 2 in the fair value hierarchy (fair value based
on observable market inputs).
The fair value of exchange derivatives is equal to the difference between the present value of the amount
sold or purchased in a given currency (translated into euros at the futures rate) and the amount sold or
purchased in this same currency (translated into euros at the closing rate).
The fair value of currency derivatives (mainly in pounds sterling) is determined by discounting the present
value of future cash flows (interest receivable in pounds sterling and payable in euros, along with the future
purchase of pounds sterling against euros) over the remaining term of the instrument at the end of the
reporting period. The discount rates used are the market rates that correspond to the maturity of the cash
flows. The present value of the cash flows denominated in pounds sterling is translated into euros at the
closing exchange rate.
The fair value of exchange derivatives and other currency instruments is calculated using valuation
techniques with observable market inputs (level 2 of the fair value hierarchy) and generally accepted
pricing models.
The nature of the gains and losses arising on each financial instrument category can be analyzed as

Sensitivity analysis
Due to the international scope of its operations, the Group is exposed to currency risk on its use of several
different currencies.
Operational currency risk
In general, hedges arise naturally with the matching of income and expenses in most countries in which the
Group operates, since services are provided locally. The Group's exposure to currency risk arising on
transactions carried out in foreign currencies is therefore relatively low.
Translation risk
Over two-thirds of the Group's revenue is generated in currencies other than the euro, including 12% in US
dollars, 7% in Chinese yuan, 5% in Australian dollars, 4% in Hong Kong dollars, and 3% in Brazilian real.
Taken individually, other currencies do not represent more than 5% of the Groups revenue. The Group's
evolving currency mix reflects the fast-paced development of its activities outside the eurozone, in Asia and
particularly in US dollars in the United States and in other dollar-linked currencies. As the Groups



Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 38
presentation currency is the euro, it must convert into euros any assets, liabilities, income and expenses
denominated in other currencies at the time of preparing its financial statements. The results of the Group's
foreign currency operations are consolidated in its income statement after being converted into euros using
the average exchange rate for the period. Assets and liabilities are converted at the period-end rate. As a
result, changes in the value of the euro against other currencies affect the corresponding amounts in the
consolidated financial statements, even if the value of the items concerned remains unchanged in their
original currencies.
The impact of a 1% rise or fall in the euro against a number of different currencies is described below:
a 1% change in the value of the euro against the US dollar would have had an impact of 0.12% on
consolidated revenue for first-half 2014 and 0.12% on operating profit for the same period;
a 1% change in the value of the euro against the Chinese yuan would have had an impact of
0.07% on consolidated revenue for first-half 2014 and 0.14% on operating profit for the same
period;
a 1% change in the value of the euro against the Australian dollar would have had an impact of
0.05% on consolidated revenue for first-half 2014 and 0.01% on operating profit for the same
period;
a 1% change in the value of the euro against the Hong Kong dollar would have had an impact of
0.04% on consolidated revenue for first-half 2014 and 0.06% on operating profit for the same
period;
a 1% change in the value of the euro against the Brazilian real would have had an impact of 0.03%
on consolidated revenue for first-half 2014 and 0.03% on operating profit for the same period.
Financial currency risk
If it deems appropriate, the Group may take out currency hedges to protect itself against the impact of
currency risk on its income statement.
The table below shows the results of the sensitivity analysis for financial instruments exposed to currency
risk on the Group's main foreign currencies (euros, US dollars and pounds sterling) at June 30, 2014:

Non-functional currency




Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 39
The Group is exposed to currency risk inherent to financial instruments denominated in foreign currencies
(i.e., currencies other than the functional currency of each Group entity). The sensitivity analysis presented
above shows the impact that a significant change in the value of the euro, US dollar and pound sterling
would have on earnings in a non-functional currency. The analysis for the US dollar does not include
entities whose functional currency is strongly correlated to the US dollar, for example Group entities based
in Hong Kong. Liabilities denominated in a currency other than the functional currency of the entity, for
which a hedge has been taken out converting the liability to the functional currency, have not been included
in the analysis. The impact of a 1% change in exchange rates on hedges is shown in the table above.
Financial instruments denominated in foreign currencies which are included in the sensitivity analysis relate
to key monetary statement of financial position items and in particular, current and non-current financial
assets, trade and other receivables, cash and cash equivalents, current and non-current financial liabilities,
current liabilities, and trade and other payables.
Interest rate risk
The Groups interest rate risk arises primarily from assets and liabilities bearing interest at floating rates.
The Group seeks to limit its exposure to a rise in interest rates through the use of interest rate instruments
where appropriate.
Interest rate exposure is monitored on a monthly basis. The Group continually analyses the level of hedges
put in place and ensures that they are appropriate for the related underlying exposure. The Group's policy
is to prevent more than 60% of its consolidated net debt being exposed to a rise in interest rates over a
long period (more than six months). The Group may therefore enter into other swaps, collars or similar
instruments for this purpose. No financial instruments are contracted for speculative purposes. At June 30,
2014, the Group had no interest rate hedges.

Bureau Veritas 2014 Half Year Financial Report 40
At June 30, 2014, the Group considers that a 1% rise in short-term interest rates across all currencies
would lead to an increase of around EUR (3.6) million in interest payable. Debts maturing after five years,
representing a total amount of EUR 887.8 million, are essentially at fixed rates. At June 30, 2014, 76% of
the Group's gross debt was at fixed rates.
Note 18: Related-party transactions
Parties related to the Company are its majority shareholder Wendel as well as the Chairman of the Board
of Directors and the Chief Executive Officer (corporate officers of the Company).
On June 30, 2014, the amounts recognized with respect to compensation paid in France to the Chief
Executive Officer (fixed and variable portions) and long-term compensation plans (stock options and
performance share grants) granted are as follows:

(in millions of euros) June 2014 June 2013
Wages and salaries
1.0 1.5
Stock options
0.2 0.3
Performance share grants
1.0 0.6
Total
2.2 2.4

The amounts in the above table reflect the fair value for accounting purposes of options and shares in
accordance with IFRS 2. Consequently, they do not represent the actual amounts that may be paid if any
stock options are exercised or any performance shares vest. Stock options and performance shares
require a minimum period of service and are also subject to a number of performance conditions.
Shares are measured at fair value as calculated under the Black-Scholes model rather than based on the
compensation effectively received. The performance share grants require a minimum period of service and
are also subject to a number of performance conditions.
Key management personnel held a total of 480,000 stock options at June 30, 2014 (June 30, 2013:
896,580), with a fair value per share of EUR 2.75 (June 30, 2013: EUR 1.88).
The number of performance shares granted to the executive corporate officer amounted to 1,048,000 at
June 30, 2014 (300,000 at June 30, 2013).
Note 19: Events after the end of the reporting period
Award of stock purchase options and performance shares
On July 16, 2014, the Board of Directors decided to award stock purchase options and performance shares
to 569 Group employees including the Chief Executive Officer, corresponding to a total of 2,552,800 shares
(1,291,600 performance shares and 1,261,200 stock purchase options), or 0.58% of the share capital.
The purchase price for the stock options was set at EUR 20.28, reflecting the average undiscounted quoted
opening price for the Company's shares on the 20 trading days preceding the grant date.
These grants are subject to a number of performance and service conditions.

2.3. STATUTORY AUDITORS REVIEW REPORT ON THE
INTERIM FINANCIAL INFORMATION (JANUARY 1 TO
JUNE 30, 2014)
To the Shareholders,
BUREAU VERITAS
67 71, boulevard du Chteau
92571 Neuilly-sur-Seine Cedex - France

In compliance with the assignment entrusted to us by your Annual General Meeting and in accordance with
the requirements of article L. 451-1-2 III of the French Monetary and Financial Code (Code montaire et
financier), we hereby report to you on:

- the review of the accompanying condensed interim consolidated financial statements of Bureau Veritas,
for the six months ended June 30, 2014;
- the verification of the information contained in the interim management report.

These condensed interim consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Board of
Directors. Our role is to express a conclusion on these financial statements based on our review.

I - Conclusion on the financial statements

We conducted our review in accordance with professional standards applicable in France. A review of
interim financial information consists of making inquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and
accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is substantially less in
scope than an audit conducted in accordance with professional standards applicable in France and
consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant
matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the accompanying
condensed interim consolidated financial statements have not been prepared, in all material respects, in
accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting, as adopted by the European Union.

II Specific verification

We have also verified the information given in the interim management report on the condensed interim
consolidated financial statements subject to our review. We have no matters to report as to its fair
presentation and its consistency with the condensed interim consolidated financial statements.

appearing in Chapter 2 2014 Condensed Half-Year Consolidated Financial Statements have been
