HOMAIR VACANCES : 2012 RESULTS
HOMAIR Vacances has not met all its ambitious objectives in 2012. However business basics remain quite strong as illustrated both by (i) the Group's high level of profitability and (ii) the reduction of its net financial debt level:
· Net sales up 8% at €66.5m, fuelled by a 3% RevPAR growth on average in 2012;
· EBITDAR flat vs. its 2011 level while there is a 5% decline at EBITDA level (€18.9m, i.e. 28.5% margin), partly driven by the sale and lease transaction concluded in the first part of 2012
· Net income up 1% (€4.0m)
Net financial debt has been reduced from €56.5m in 2011 to €53.1m this year.
Initiatives both in terms of cost control and in terms of development are meant to deliver a two-digits EBITDA growth in 2013.
2012: key events
1. Development of the sites and mobile-homes portfolio
The 2012 HOMAIR Vacances portfolio has included c.8,500 mobile-homes (i.e. +5% vs. 2011) spread across c.150 campsites.
One new own site has been added to the portfolio in 2012: the Sole di Sari campsite in Solenzara, Corsica (4*), while the Al Fresco division has developed its reach on prime Italian and French campsites.
2. RevPAR growth
HOMAIR Vacances has recorded another year of RevPAR expansion at +3.0%.
On average over the past seven years, RevPAR has grown 5.0% p.a.
Net sales have enjoyed an 8% growth in 2012, while EBITDAR is flat. This evolution is due to operating costs (most particularly marketing investments) having been geared towards the initial "above 10%" sales growth objective. The significant rental expense increase, due to the sale and lease transaction completed in early 2012, leads to a 5% decline at EBITDA level.
In the same period, net income is up 1% at €4.0m (Group share), and benefits from the exceptional income generated by the sale and lease transaction.
4. Balance sheet and financial structure
HOMAIR Vacances has built a sound financial structure with shareholders' equity growing alongside the Group's net income (+€4.0m), while the Net Financial Debt has been reduced from €56.5m to €53.1m in 2012.
The Group has implemented a wide range of alternative financing tools in 2012, which demonstrates the attractivity of its business model and offer a diversification of funding sources :
· Micado bond issued in September 2012 (HOMAIR first issuer)
· Sale and lease transaction on part of the land portfolio
· Oseo credit line
5. Evolution of the Group's shareholding structure
On July 19th 2012, funds managed by NAXICAP partners have taken a stake in Iliade, itself a 67% shareholder of HOMAIR Vacances, alongside funds managed by MONTEFIORE Investment, which have been present in the Group's capital since 2006, enjoying its very strong growth ride.
