HOMAIR Vacances has started to implement the bases of tits 2009 season with the acquisition of a 175-slots campsite in Dordogne and the signature of a JV agreement in Italy, where the Group will own a 51% stake.
1 - Dordogne: acquisition of the Val d'Ussel campsite
HOMAIR Vacances has signed last week the acquisition of the Val d'Ussel campsite in Dordogne.
This 175-slots campsite, located in a region particularly attractive to the international clients of the Group, is a very good complement to the owned campsite network.
This transaction illustrates the Group's intention to pursue both its land ownership strategy and the growth of the owned campsite business model.
2 - Italy: JV agreement
HOMAIR Vacances and ELITE Group Vacanze have signed an agreement to incorporate a JV for the 2009 season. This JV will be 51%-owned by HOMAIR.
This agreement enables HOMAIR to commercialise eventually 450 mobile-homes in a first-quality locations such as Rome, Florence, San Vincenzo and Lake Garda, while enjoying the local expertise of ELITE in Italy. It constitutes a major development both in scale and nature vs. current "standard" partnership agreements between both entities. It also enables HOMAIR to become the exclusive French partner of ELITE.
This illustrates the attractiveness of HOMAIR both as a partner and as a commercial force.Next press release:
