2008 season: preliminary elements
Preliminary data regarding the 2008 season confirm that the “above 20% net sales growth target” will be met. 2008 fiscal year should also record another significant income growth, although at a slower rate vs. sales growth, due to:Moderate RevPAR growth; Structural investments made this year; The opportunistic integration of a mobile-home portfolio during the season, which will create value from 2009 onwards but should drag the 2008 margin, as these could not be commercialised during the full season.
JV agreement in Corsica
HOMAIR Vacances has signed a partnership agreement with the shareholders of the Marina d'Erba Rossa campsite in Ghisonaccia (Corsica; 575 slots; 4*). This deal leads to the constitution of a Joint Venture (JV), 51%-owned by HOMAIR Vacances and owner of the Marina d'Erba Rossa and Acqua e Sole (Sainte Lucie de Porto Vecchio) campsites, i.e. over 700 slots in Corsica. The Sainte Lucie de Porto Vecchio campsite was acquired by HOMAIR Vacances in March 2008. This JV will be incorporated before the start of the 2009 season.
