  • Retail banners:
    • In a declining food market shaped by the reopening of the out-of-home food industry, the impact of the health pass on hypermarkets, and a Paris region still feeling the effect of the drop in tourism, the various banners saw a gradual return to growth, with net sales up +7.8 pts vs. Q2 to -3.2% (vs. -11% in Q2) overall and by +4.1 pts on a same-storebasis to -4.3% (vs. -8.4% in Q2). This improvement continued in the first four weeks of October1, with net sales down -2.6% on a same- store basis (-1.4%excluding hypermarkets) and the convenience formats returning to growth, including Franprix:

  • Market shares were almost stable over the last Kantar period (-0.1pts in P10), confirming the steady improvement since P05;
  • Continued development of priority growth drivers:
  1. Acceleration in food E-commerce, with home delivery sales up +72% in the Ile-de-France region, largely outperforming the broader home delivery (+29%2 in France) and food E-commerce(+7%2 in France) markets. This performance validates the Group's strategy supported by its store network and partnerships with leading tech companies. In addition:
    • Development of the Ocado partnershipwith the addition of the Naturalia banner to the O'logistique delivery offering, which now covers more than 35,000 items on Monoprix Plus, 26,000 on Casino Plus, and more than 4,000 items on Naturalia Marché Bio;
    • The Amazon partnershipgenerated double-digit sales growth. Monoprix is Amazon's sole partner for express food delivery through its Monoprix and Naturalia stores following the discontinuation of the banner's own delivery service;
    • Casino Group and Gorillassigned a memorandum of understanding to seal a strategic partnership with Monoprix & Franprix including (i) the supply of national brands and
      Monoprix's products to Gorillas, and (ii) the preparation and delivery of Monoprix and
      Franprix orders by Gorillas. Casino Group will be associated to value creation through a stake in Gorillas in France and at Group level.

      1. Deployment of the expansion plan with around a hundred convenience stores opened over the quarter (Franprix, Monop, Vival, etc.), bringing the total number of new stores opened since January 2021 to 454.
    • Profitability remains high, with EBITDA margin for the retail banners1 at 8%, stable over the quarter thanks to the effects of the cost-savingplans launched in the first half of the year which offset the impact of the sales decline on profitability.
  • Cdiscount solid sales performance (GMV +8%) despite a weak e-commerce market amid the reopening:
    • Increase in loyalty programme customer base (Cdiscount à Volonté) of +10.8% to 2.4 million;
    • Digital marketing revenues up +31% over the quarter;
    • Acceleration in Octopia's growth, with five contracts signed over the quarter;
    • C-Logisticsenjoyed a sharp acceleration, with 25 customer contracts signed, of which 15 already launched.

Outlook for 2021 in France

  • Focus on growth
    • Objective of 750 secured convenience store openings by the end of the year (Franprix, Vival, Naturalia, Le Petit Casino, etc.);
    • Acceleration of food e-commerce based on structurally profitable models thanks to our exclusive partnerships (Ocado, Amazon) and the solutions deployed in stores.
  • Profitability
    • In light of Cnova N.V.'s announcement on October 8, 2021, stating it was no longer in a position to confirm its financial objectives for 2021, the previous objectives communicated by Casino Group for France including Cnova are no longer valid;
    • The Group is therefore formulating its guidance on the France retail banner scope1, for which it confirms, as stated on July 29 communications, its target of EBITDA growth for 2021.
  • Inflationary pressures and supply chain constraints
    • The Group is attentive to changes in raw material costs and food prices. At present, the Group does not anticipate any material inflationary effect for full-year 2021;
    • Measures have been taken to limit the risk of shortages due to logistical constraints. At present, the Group does not anticipate any material effect for full-year 2021.

Disposal plan

  • The group confirms the continuation of its disposal plan of €4.5bn in France, of which €3.1bn has been signed or secured to date.
    • Works for the finalization of the sale of Floa Bank, for a total amount of €179m, are proceeding according to schedule;
    • Preparatory works to finance the acceleration of GreenYellow's growth are continuing;
    • As indicated by Cnova N.V. in its press release of October 08, 2021, due to market conditions and despite interest mentioned by possible investors, Cnova's raising of funds is deferred.
  • The Group reminds that the deadline for the completion of the disposal plan, initially set at the end of Q1 2021, has been suspended in March 2020 in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Group will keep the market regularly informed of the progress of this disposal plan.

In France Retail, sales for the quarter amounted to €3,560m, down -4.3% on a same-store basis (vs. -8.4%in Q2 2021), impacted by a drop in traffic during the summer in the Paris region and the implementation of the health pass. The food E-commerce segment nevertheless remained very strong, recording same-storegrowth in net sales of +26% for the quarter.

The digitalisation of the customer experience continued, with 640 stores now offering automated solutions (versus 613 at end-June2021), enabling them to operate autonomously in the evening and on Sundays. 65% of payments at Géant hypermarkets and 61% at Casino Supermarkets were made by smartphone or automatic checkout during the quarter (vs. 61% and 48% at end-2020).Casino Max app users accounted for 26% of sales in hypermarkets and supermarkets at the end of September (vs. 22% at end-2020)and customers with the Casino Max Extra subscription accounted for 14.5% of sales (+3.7 pts over the year).

Business review by banner:

  • Monoprix net sales were down -4.1% on a same-store basis over the quarter (vs. -4.9%in Q2 2021), impacted by a poor summer in the Paris region due to low tourist flows and the decrease in the number of residents in Paris. E-commerce recorded a strong growth, driven by the ramp-up of Monoprix Plus (more than 35,000 items) and the launch of Naturalia Marché Bio in late August (more than 4,000 items) via the O'logistique automated warehouse. The partnership with Amazon, for which Monoprix and Naturalia are now the only partners in express food delivery, is also experiencing rapid double-digit growth. The launch of the Monopflix loyalty programme at the end of August is already a resounding success. Monoprix continued to roll out autonomous solutions over the quarter (244 stores to date, of which 15 new deployments in Q3).
