HOMAIR VACANCES : 2009: PROFITABLE GROWTH RELAUNCHED
The 2009 fiscal year, ended on September 30th 2009, has seen another display of dynamic top-line growth for HOMAIR Vacances, as well as a significant improvement of its bottom line.
While the overall macro-economic environment has been positive for the campsite industry, highlighting its "close-to-home" and "friendliness" values, the Group strategy announced on January 27th 2009 ("relaunch of the profitable growth") has been a success.

Four key drivers explain the performance of HOMAIR Vacances:Ongoing development of the mobile homes portfolio (6,100 units, i.e. +15.5%). Strong growth of the RevPAR, on a like-for-like basis (+8.9%), due to both a more ambitious pricing policy and an improved occupancy rate, particularly towards the end of the season. Very good performance of the Group's own sites, including the Corsica and Italy JVs, as well as the campsites integrated during the previous seasons. Control over the operating costs.
Accordingly with the previously communicated timetable, these results will be detailed and analysed on January 28th, 2010.
Strengthened partnerships and the new stage of mobile-homes' installation on the Group's own sites provide confidence for 2010 and beyond.
