Q1 GROUP REVENUE
Income from the tourism businesses
Revenue from tourism activities
Despite current macro-economic tension, revenue from the tourism activities showed robust momentum, rising 19.4% relative to Q1 2021/2022 which was still affected by the uncertain health environment. This level was in line with targets for the period and reassuring in terms of the Group’s continuing action plans.
Q1 2022/2023 accommodation revenue totalled €272.4, up 19.6% relative to the year-earlier period, after a rise of 15.9% recorded over the summer season.
All of the Group’s brands contributed to momentum in revenue growth:
Center Parcs: +16.3%
Growth was driven by both the rise in the number of nights sold (+9.3%) and average letting rates (+6.4%), benefiting from both the French domains (+18.6%) and the domains located in BNG (+15.1%, of which +31.1% in the Netherlands, +8.0% in Belgium and +4.2% in Germany). The occupancy rate rose by almost two points to 73.3% over the quarter as a whole.
Pierre & Vacances: +4.4%
Revenue generated by residences in France was virtually stable (-0.8%) partly in view of the decline in the stock of units managed by lease (-5% in night stays offered relative to the year-earlier period, given the non-renewal of leases or withdrawals from loss-making sites). On a constant stock basis, revenue was higher (RevPar up 4%).
Revenue from residences in Spain surged 43.9%, primarily driven by a volume effect.
Across all destinations, the brand recorded an 8.7% increase in average letting rates, helping to offset the four-point decline in the occupancy rate, partly caused by comparison with the exceptional privatisation of the Rouret site by the French Ministry of the Armies during the entire quarter in the year-earlier period.
City residences recorded outstanding performances with a higher level of activity than that seen prior to the Covid crisis (+22% relative to Q1 2019/2020). Average letting rates were up 38.6% relative to the year-earlier period, while the occupancy rate rose by eight points to 78%.
Supplementary income totalled €71.2 million, up 18.7% relative to Q1 of the previous year, driven by the rise in onsite sales (+22.1% in line with the trend noted in accommodation revenue) and growth in the distribution and management business for maeva.com (+3.6% over the quarter).
Revenue from other activities totalled €47.1 million in Q1 2022/2023, compared with €67.8 million in Q1 2021/2022 (decline with no significant impact on EBITDA), and concerned primarily:
renovation operations for Center Parcs domains on behalf of lessors for €26.1 million (compared with €36.7 million in Q1 2021/2022).
Seniorales residences for €18.2 million (vs. €13.9 million in Q1 2021/2022);
the Major Projects business line: €0.8 million (vs €14.7 million in Q1 2021/2022 including €12.2 million related to the Center Parcs Domaine des Landes de Gascogne).
In view of tourism reservations to date for the second quarter of 2022/2023, the Group is currently expecting further growth in revenue compared with Q2 2021/2022 for all of its brands. In a complex and particularly uncertain macro-economic backdrop, the Group is fully mobilised to reach its strategic targets and especially to control its cost structure.
Under IFRS accounting, revenue for the first quarter of 2022/2023 totalled €351.8 million, compared with €314.2m in Q1 2021/2022, with growth of almost 18% in the tourism businesses. Revenue growth concerned all of the brands, benefiting from both a rise in average letting rates and the number of nights sold.
