UPGRADE OF 2011 OBJECTIVES AND

IMPLEMENTATION OF A SIGNIFICANT GROWTH-ENABLING TOOL

In a context of strong bookings and successful post-merger integration of Thomson Al Fresco, the Group upgrades its 2011 objectives, with consolidated sales expected above ¤60m (i.e. +30%). This growth level is above the last five years' performance (+22% p.a.).

EBITDA is now expected around c.¤19.5m, i.e. +23% vs. 2010, vs. a previously-communicated objective of "above +20%". Net income should also experience a very strong growth.

In addition, HOMAIR Vacances signed last night a ¤20m sale and lease-back agreement with a private investor, relative to part of the Group's land portfolio. HOMAIR Vacances will keep operating the related campsites with a long-term rental agreement. This innovative transaction will enable to fuel an acceleration the Group's growth and its development investments, while reducing its debt level.

The Group is the French leader of the mobile-home holiday market in which it operates exclusively, with c.8,000 units for the 2011 season, which also represents the largest fleet in Europe.
