HOMAIR VACANCES : 2010 RESULTS: Another year of profitable growth
HOMAIR Vacances has put forward a new step of growth and profitability in 2010, while decreasing its debt ratios.
The profitable growth strategy led and implemented by the management team provides confidence at the outset of the 2011 season, which will also benefit from the likely integration of THOMSON AL FRESCO, subject to condition precedents being satisfactorily addressed.
2010: profitable growth again for HOMAIR Vacances
1. Development of the sites and mobile-homes portfolio
The 2010 HOMAIR Vacances portfolio has included 6 627 mobile-homes (i.e. +8.6% vs. 2009) spread across 77 partner sites and 24 own sites. Mobile-home growth has been focused on own sites where the Group has optimised its product offer by adding mobile-homes on pitches acquired over the past three years.
Three sites have been added to the own sites' stable in 2010:Camping de L'Univers in the southwestern Landes region (4* ; 300 pitches) ; Two "green" sites in the northeastern Ardennes region (3* each; total of 500 pitches, no mobile-home in 2010).
2. RevPAR growth
Following a remarkable +11.2% RevPAR growth in 2009, HOMAIR Vacances has recorded another year of RevPAR expansion at +1.7% (and +3 ;0% on a strict like-for-like basis).
On average over the past five years, RevPAR has grown 4.5% p.a.
3. Operating cost control
The Group's EBIT margin has improved by 1.8% for the second consecutive year, moving from 11.9% in 2008 to 13.7% in 2009 and 15.1% in 2010. The development of the own sites model (with no pitch rental costs) and cost control measures are the key drivers behind this performance.
Net sales have enjoyed a 9% growth in 2010, while EBITDA has grown 14%, EBIT 21% and current income 34%, respectively.
5. Balance sheet and financial structure
HOMAIR Vacances has built a sound financial structure with shareholders' equity growing alongside the Group's net income (+€2.4m before minority interests) while the Net debt/EBITDA ratio has decreased again: 3.17x in 2008 vs. 2.62x in 2009 vs. 2.46x in 2010.
