1 Pro forma P2R for 2019 as confirmed by the ECB in December 2017
2 Throughout this press release, the term “underlying” refers to intermediary balances adjusted for specific items which are detailed from page 16 onwards
3 The scope effect is calculated by adjusting the net income Group share of the first quarter of 2017 by deleting the contributions of BSF (€68m for Crédit Agricole Group, €67m for Crédit Agricole SA) and Eurazeo (€77m) and adding that of Pioneer, after deduction of the amortisation of distribution contracts (€36m), and of the first quarter of 2018 by deleting the contribution of the three Italian banks (-€4m); the currency effect mainly reflects the US dollar's depreciation against the euro of -14% on average in Q1-18 in relation to Q1-17 and to a lesser extent the fall in the Egyptian and Ukrainian currencies.
4 Average over last four rolling quarters, annualised
