Commenting on the results, Chairman and CEO Christophe de Margerie said:

“The Group reported 2013 adjusted net income of 14.3 billion dollars, a slight decrease from the previous year. Against a backdrop of growing demand, the upstream environment remained stable with a Brent price close 110 $/b. In the downstream, the significant deterioration of European refining margins was partially offset by a more favorable environment for petrochemicals.

The year 2013 marks an important step for the Group. In the Upstream, launching major projects, in key regions like Africa, Canada and Russia, as well as entering into promising new assets, notably in Brazil, allows us to confirm our objectives and strengthens the outlook for the Group beyond 2017. In the Downstream, the resilient results are evidence of the successful implementation of our ongoing restructuring plans.

As announced, the intensive investment phase that we embarked on to transform our production profile by 2017 reached a peak of 28 billion dollars in 2013.

Backed by a strong balance sheet and a commitment to a policy to provide competitive returns to our shareholders, the Board of Directors decided to propose a dividend increase for 2013 at the Annual Shareholders Meeting.

Having demonstrated strong operational progress in every segment, we are confident in the ability of our teams to develop value-creating projects and to prevail in the necessary battle against rising costs. It is with this ambition that we move forward to implement our model for sustainable growth and reaffirm our priority for safety and acceptability in our operations.”

The Board of Directors of Total, led by Chairman and CEO Christophe de Margerie, met on February 11, 2014, and decided to propose at the Annual Shareholders Meeting on May 16, 2014, a dividend of 2.38 €/share for 2013, which represents a 3.4% increase for the remaining dividend.

Adjusted net operating income from the Upstream segment was 2,250 M€ in the fourth quarter 2013 compared to 2,686 M€ in the fourth quarter 2012, a decrease of 16%.

Expressed in dollars, adjusted net operating income from the Upstream segment decreased by 12%, reflecting mainly a less favorable production mix, a lower average realized liquids price, and a higher tax rate for the Upstream segment.

The effective tax rate for the Upstream segment was 58.8% in the fourth quarter 2013 compared to 54.8% in the fourth quarter 2012, which was marked by favorable one-off items, like year-end tax adjustments and the reversal of a non-deductible loss.

Adjusted net operating income from the Upstream segment in 2013 was 9,370 M€ compared to 11,145 M€ in 2012, a decrease of 16%. Expressed in dollars, adjusted net operating income from the Upstream segment was 12.4 B$, a decrease of 13%, mainly due to a less favorable production mix, higher technical costs, particularly for exploration, and a higher tax rate for the Upstream segment.

The effective tax rate for the Upstream segment was 60.1% in 2013 compared to 58.4% in 2012.

Technical costs for consolidated subsidiaries, in accordance with ASC 93231, were 26.1 $/boe in 2013 compared to 22.8 $/boe in 2012, notably due to increased non-cash expenses relating to major project start-ups as well as increased exploration expenses.

* Results for refineries in South Africa, French Antilles and Italy are reported in the Marketing & Services segment.

** based on distillation capacity at the beginning of the year.

In the fourth quarter 2013, refinery throughput decreased by 4% compared to the fourth quarter 2012, essentially due to a turnaround at the Feyzin refinery, unscheduled maintenance at the Antwerp refinery, strikes at refineries in France, and voluntary shutdowns in response to weak refining margins.

For the full-year 2013, refinery throughput decreased by 4% compared to the previous year, reflecting essentially a turnaround at the Antwerp refinery, higher maintenance at the Donges refinery, voluntary shutdowns in response to weak refining margins in late 2013, and the closure of the Rome refinery at the end of the third quarter 2012.

The European refining margin indicator (ERMI) averaged 10.1 $/t in the fourth quarter 2013, a decrease of 70% compared to the average of 33.9 $/t in the fourth quarter 2012. For the full-year 2013, the ERMI was 17.9 $/t, a decrease of 50% compared to 2012. Petrochemical margins remained at high levels, particularly in the United States.

Adjusted net operating income from the Refining & Chemicals segment was 321 M€ in the fourth quarter 2013, compared to 367 M€ in the fourth quarter 2012.
Expressed in dollars, adjusted net operating income was 437 M$ compared to 476 M$ in the fourth quarter 2012, reflecting essentially the deterioration of the refining environment, partially offset by the improvement in petrochemical margins and by the impact of efficiency plans, notably for fixed cost reductions, between the two periods.

For the full-year 2013, adjusted net operating income from the Refining & Chemicals segment was 1,404 M€, an increase of 2% compared to the 1,376 M€ in 2012.
Expressed in dollars, adjusted net operating income was 1.9 B$, an increase of 5% compared to 2012, despite the 50% decrease in refining margins. The increase was due in part to the tangible results realized from the implementation of planned synergies and operational efficiencies and to a more favorable environment for petrochemicals that offset the sharp decline in European refining margins.

In addition, the SATORP integrated refinery in Saudi Arabia has begun to export refined products after the successful start-up of its first units.

The ROACE33 for the Refining & Chemicals segment was 9% for the full-year 2013, stable compared to the full-year 2012.

In the fourth quarter 2013, sales volumes increased by 3% compared to the fourth quarter 2012. This increase was driven in particular by sales in the Americas, Africa and Middle East.

Overall for the full-year 2013, sales volumes increased by 2% compared to the previous year, due to growth in Africa and the Americas, partially offset by a decrease in Europe.

Marketing & Services sales were 20.8 B€ in the fourth quarter 2013, a decrease of 4% compared to the fourth quarter 2012.

Adjusted net operating income from the Marketing & Services segment was 226 M€ in the fourth quarter 2013 compared to 267 M€ in the fourth quarter 2012, reflecting lower margins in European markets.

For the full-year 2013, Marketing & Services sales were 83.5 B€, a decrease of 4% compared to 2012.

Adjusted net operating income from the Marketing & Services segment in 2013 was 1,151 M€ compared to 830 M€ in 2012, an increase of 39% reflecting essentially the improvement in the performance of the New Energies, which had particularly negative results in 2012, as well as the overall improvement made in refined products marketing, particularly in emerging markets.

The ROACE34 for the Marketing & Services segment was 16% for the full-year 2013 compared to 12% for the full-year 2012.

  • TOTAL S.A., parent company accounts

Net income for TOTAL S.A., the parent company, was 6,031 M€ in 2013, compared to 6,520 M€ in 2012.

  • Proposed dividend

After closing the 2013 accounts, the Board of Directors decided to propose at the May 16, 2014, Annual Shareholders Meeting a 2.38 €/share dividend for 2013, which represents a 3.4% increase for the remaining dividend35. Taking into account the interim dividends for the first three quarters of 2013 approved by the Board of Directors, the remaining 2013 dividend would increase to 0.61 €/ share and be paid on June 5, 2014.

Total’s dividend pay-out ratio, based on the adjusted net income for 2013, would be 50%.

  • Summary and outlook

The ROACE for the Group for 2013 was 13%, compared to 16% in 2012. Return on equity for 2013 was 15%, compared to 18% in 2012.

After reaching a peak of 28 B$ in 2013, the budget for organic investments was reduced to 26 B$ in 2014, more than 80% of which will be dedicated to Upstream. In addition, the Group has mobilized all of its teams with the objective to closely control their investments and reduce their operating costs while maintaining as an imperative the priority to safety.

The Group’s asset sale program, targeting 15-20 B$ over the 2012-14 period, generated 13 B$ in assets sales in 2012 and 201336. In 2014, with asset sales that are pending and under study, the Group expects to achieve the program target and potentially exceed it.

In the Upstream segment, Total confirmed its production growth targets of 2.6 Mboe/d in 2015 and the potential for about 3 Mboe/d in 2017. Essentially all of the projects needed to achieve these targets are either already producing or under development. In 2014, after the expiration of Adco license, production should benefit from ramp-ups on recently started projects and from the start-up of Total-operated projects, like CLOV in Angola, Laggan-Tormore in the UK North Sea and Ofon Phase 2 in Nigeria.

Total is continuing to pursue its ambitious exploration program with a stable budget of 2.8 B$. This program includes, in particular, high-potential prospects in Brazil, the Kwanza Basin in Angola, Ivory Coast and South Africa.

In the Refining & Chemicals segment, productivity and synergy gains related to the ongoing restructuring should continue in 2014 to contribute, in a constant environment, to the improvement in the segment’s profitability. Also in 2014, the start-up of the remaining units of the Satorp refinery at Jubail in Saudi Arabia will make the new, integrated platform fully operational.

The Marketing & Services segment plans to continue developing its positions in growth markets and to optimize its positions in Europe. New Energies, at breakeven in 2013, should continue to benefit from ongoing efforts at SunPower to improve productivity through growth and innovation.

The Group confirms its commitment to a policy of competitive returns to shareholders in accordance with its objectives for sustainable development.

Finally, to provide more comparable financial disclosure and to better reflect the performance of its activities, which are mainly dollar-based, Total has decided to change, effective January 1, 2014, its financial statements reporting from euros to U.S. dollars. The accounts of the parent company, TOTAL S.A., will remain in euros. The dividend will therefore continue to be fixed in euros.

Since the start of the year, the environment has remained favorable in the upstream, while refining margins have continued to deteriorate significantly in Europe.

This press release presents the fourth quarter and full-year 2013 results from the consolidated financial statements of TOTAL S.A. as of December 31, 2013. The audit procedures by the Statutory Auditors are underway. This document does not constitute the Annual Financial Report (Rapport Financier Annuel) within the meaning of article L. 451-1-2 of the French monetary and financial Code (Code monétaire et financier).

This document may contain forward-looking information on the Group (including objectives and trends), as well as forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, notably with respect to the financial condition, results of operations, business, strategy and plans of TOTAL. These data do not represent forecasts within the meaning of European Regulation No. 809/2004.

Such forward-looking information and statements included in this document are based on a number of economic data and assumptions made in a given economic, competitive and regulatory environment. They may prove to be inaccurate in the future, and are subject to a number of risk factors that could lead to a significant difference between actual results and those anticipated, including currency fluctuations, the price of petroleum products, the ability to realize cost reductions and operating efficiencies without unduly disrupting business operations, environmental regulatory considerations and general economic and business conditions. Certain financial information is based on estimates particularly in the assessment of the recoverable value of assets and potential impairments of assets relating thereto.

Neither TOTAL nor any of its subsidiaries assumes any obligation to update publicly any forward-looking information or statement, objectives or trends contained in this document whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Further information on factors, risks and uncertainties that could affect the Company’s financial results or the Group’s activities is provided in the most recent Registration Document filed by the Company with the French Autorité des Marchés Financiers and annual report on Form 20-F filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

Financial information by business segment is reported in accordance with the internal reporting system and shows internal segment information that is used to manage and measure the performance of TOTAL. Performance indicators excluding the adjustment items, such as adjusted operating income, adjusted net operating income, and adjusted net income are meant to facilitate the analysis of the financial performance and the comparison of income between periods. These adjustment items include:

(i) Special items
Due to their unusual nature or particular significance, certain transactions qualified as "special items" are excluded from the business segment figures. In general, special items relate to transactions that are significant, infrequent or unusual. However, in certain instances, transactions such as restructuring costs or asset disposals, which are not considered to be representative of the normal course of business, may be qualified as special items although they may have occurred within prior years or are likely to occur again within the coming years.
(ii) Inventory valuation effect
The adjusted results of the Refining & Chemicals and Marketing & Services segments are presented according to the replacement cost method. This method is used to assess the segments’ performance and facilitate the comparability of the segments’ performance with those of its competitors.
In the replacement cost method, which approximates the LIFO (Last-In, First-Out) method, the variation of inventory values in the statement of income is, depending on the nature of the inventory, determined using either the month-end price differentials between one period and another or the average prices of the period rather than the historical value. The inventory valuation effect is the difference between the results according to the FIFO (First-In, First-Out) and the replacement cost.
(iii) Effect of changes in fair value
The effect of changes in fair value presented as an adjustment item reflects for some transactions differences between internal measures of performance used by TOTAL’s management and the accounting for these transactions under IFRS.
IFRS requires that trading inventories be recorded at their fair value using period-end spot prices. In order to best reflect the management of economic exposure through derivative transactions, internal indicators used to measure performance include valuations of trading inventories based on forward prices.
Furthermore, TOTAL, in its trading activities, enters into storage contracts, which future effects are recorded at fair value in Group’s internal economic performance. IFRS precludes recognition of this fair value effect.

The adjusted results (adjusted operating income, adjusted net operating income, adjusted net income) are defined as replacement cost results, adjusted for special items, excluding the effect of changes in fair value.

Dollar amounts presented herein represent euro amounts converted at the average euro-dollar exchange rate for the applicable period and are not the result of financial statements prepared in dollars.
