I'd say: "80 cents l'action"... but you should probably confirm with the client if you can.
Bonne chance!

EPS is usually given in a currency; EPS per share is usually a small figure. I think there is little doubt that the 'c' stands for 'cents'. I you have the figures you can double check. Divide the net profit forecast by the number of outstanding shares.
I hope this helps.
