Olivier Piou, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "The revenue for the first
quarter 2016 illustrates the success of Gemalto''s diversification strategy and
the resilience of its business model. Strong performances in Government
Programs, Machine-to-Machine, Enterprise and Payment have offset lower revenues

from SIM and related services.  We continue to focus our efforts and investment
on our higher growth businesses, and confirm the improvement in our gross margin
this quarter towards achieving our 2016 and 2017 objectives."

Basis of preparation of financial information

Segment information

The Mobile segment reports on businesses associated with mobile cellular
technologies including Machine-to-Machine, mobile secure elements (SIM, embedded
secure element) and mobile Platforms & Services. The Payment & Identity segment
reports on businesses associated with secure personal interactions including
Payment, Government Programs and Enterprise. The SafeNet acquisition in 2015 is
part of the Enterprise business.

In addition to this segment information the Company also reports revenues of
Mobile and Payment & Identity by type of activity: Embedded software & Products
(E&P) and Platforms & Services (P&S).

Historical exchange rates and constant currency figures

The Company sells its products and services in a very large number of countries
and is commonly remunerated in other currencies than the Euro. Fluctuations in
these other currencies exchange rates against the Euro have in particular a
translation impact on the reported Euro value of the Company revenues.
Comparisons at constant exchange rates aim at eliminating the effect of
currencies translation movements on the analysis of the Group revenue by
translating prior-year revenues at the same average exchange rate as applied in
the current year. Revenue variations are at constant exchange rates and include
the impact of currencies variation hedging program, except where otherwise
noted. All other figures in this press release are at historical exchange rates,
except where otherwise noted.

Adjusted income statement and profit from operations (PFO) non-GAAP measure

The consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with the
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

To better assess its past and future performance, the Company also prepares an
adjusted income statement where the key metric used to evaluate the business and
make operating decisions over the period 2010 to 2017 is the profit from
operations (PFO).

PFO is a non-GAAP measure defined as IFRS operating profit adjusted for (i) the
amortization and depreciation of intangibles resulting from acquisitions, (ii)
restructuring and acquisition-related expenses, (iii) all equity-based
compensation charges and associated costs; and (iv) fair value adjustments upon
business acquisitions. These items are further explained as follows:

* Amortization and depreciation of intangibles resulting from acquisitions are
defined as the amortization and depreciation expenses related to the
intangibles recognized as part of the allocation of the excess purchase
consideration over the share of net assets acquired.

* Restructuring and acquisitions-related expenses are defined as (i)
restructuring expenses which are the costs incurred in connection with a
restructuring as defined in accordance with the provisions of IAS 37 (e.g.
sale or termination of a business, closure of a plant,.), and consequent
costs; (ii) reorganization expenses defined as the costs incurred in
connection with headcount reductions, consolidation of manufacturing and
offices sites, as well as the rationalization and harmonization of the
product and service portfolio, and the integration of IT systems, consequent
to a business combination; and (iii) transaction costs (such as fees paid as
part of the acquisition process).

* Equity-based compensation charges are defined as (i) the discount granted to
employees acquiring Gemalto shares under Gemalto Employee Stock Purchase
plans; (ii) the amortization of the fair value of stock options and
restricted share units granted by the Board of Directors to employees, and
the related costs.

* Fair value adjustments over net assets acquired are defined as the reversal,
in the income statement, of the fair value adjustments recognized as a
result of a business combination, as prescribed by IFRS3R. Those adjustments
are mainly associated with (i) the amortization expense related to the step-
up of the acquired work-in-progress and finished goods assumed at their
realizable value and (ii) the amortization of the cancelled commercial
margin related to deferred revenue balance acquired
These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or
as a substitute for comparable IFRS measures and should be read only in
conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance
with IFRS.

In the adjusted income statement, Operating Expenses are defined as the sum of
Research and Engineering expenses, Sales and Marketing expenses, General and
Administrative expenses, and Other income (expense) net.

EBITDA is defined as PFO plus depreciation and amortization expenses, excluding
the above amortization and depreciation of intangibles resulting from

Revenue 691   433 258   468 222   0

As a percentage
of  total  100% 63% 37%   68% 32%   0%

For the first quarter of 2016, total revenue came in at ?691 million, up +1% at
historical exchange rates and stable at constant exchange rates. Payment &
Identity, representing 63% of total Company revenue, posted sales of ?433
million, up +17% year-on-year.

Embedded software & Products revenue of ?468 million was (8%) lower compared to
the same period last year due to lower sales to mobile network operators and to
a lesser extent to lower sales to banks in China. Embedded software & Products
activity for Government Programs and Machine-to-Machine continued to show strong
positive trends during the quarter. Platforms & Services activities,
representing 32% of first quarter Company revenue, posted sales of ?222 million,
an increase of +22% year-on-year, supported by the expansion in payment issuance
services and data protection solutions.

The effects of currency movement in the first quarter of 2016 are minimal
compared to the first quarter of 2015, resulting in a difference of less than 1
percentage point between revenue growth at historical and constant exchange
rates. The hedging program, which aims at partially neutralizing the impact of
sudden currency variations on the Company''s profit from operations, produced a
0.1 percentage point difference compared to the same period last year.

The first quarter revenue of 2016 in the Americas region is stable compared to
the same period in 2015.  North America continued to grow despite the high
comparison basis in Mobile sales last year, fully offsetting the soft market
environment in Latin America. Revenue variations by region, at constant and
historical exchange rates, are presented in Appendix 1.
