KEY CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL DATA FOR THE LAST FIVE YEARS
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).
