**Proof.**
Additive functors commute with direct sums by Lemma 12.3.7 hence (1) implies (2) and (3). On the other hand (2) and (3) are equivalent because the composition $F(A) \oplus F(B) \to F(A \oplus B) \to F(A) \oplus F(B)$ is the identity map. Assume (2) and (3) hold. Let $f, g : A \to B$ be maps. Then $f + g$ is equal to the composition

\[ A \to A \oplus A \xrightarrow {\text{diag}(f, g)} B \oplus B \to B \]

Apply the functor $F$ and consider the following diagram

\[ \xymatrix{ F(A) \ar[r] \ar[rd] & F(A \oplus A) \ar[rr]_{F(\text{diag}(f, g))} & & F(B \oplus B) \ar[r] \ar[d] & F(B) \\ & F(A) \oplus F(A) \ar[u] \ar[rr]^{\text{diag}(F(f), F(g))} & & F(B) \oplus F(B) \ar[ru] } \]

We claim this is commutative. For the middle square we can verify it separately for each of the four induced maps $F(A) \to F(B)$ where it follows from the fact that $F$ is a functor (in other words this square commutes even if $F$ does not satisfy any properties beyond being a functor). For the triangle on the left, we use that $F(A \oplus A) \to F(A) \oplus F(A)$ is an isomorphism to see that it suffice to check after composition with this map and this check is trivial. Dually for the other triangle. Thus going around the bottom is equal to $F(f + g)$ and we conclude.
$\square$
