ODH ("Orascom Development Holding") (SIX ODHN.SW) has released its consolidated financial results for Q1 2019.
Orascom Development Holding: Back to green with net profit of CHF 1.0 million in Q1 2019, backed by financial and operational excellence across all segments and destinations.
Altdorf, 13 May 2019 - Orascom Development Holding AG started the year on solid grounds and generated positive operational results with a 32.4% increase in revenue to CHF 98.1 million compared to CHF 74.1 million in Q1 2018. All business segments contributed to the positive operational performance, solidifying the Group's message of being back on track.
Gross profit increased by 37.4% to reach CHF 30.1 million (Q1 2018: CHF 21.9 million). The Adjusted EBITDA continued to grow by 40.1% to CHF 20.6 million compared to CHF 14.7 million in Q1 2018. The significant increase in the Adjusted EBITDA signals the improved operational performance across all business segments. The Hotels segment continued to show double digit growth compared to the same period of last year. The Real Estate segment continued its operational and financial performance across all destinations, while the Destination Management segment continued to grow as a result of the successful implementation of the restructuring started in 2018 in combination with the increase of events and activities across all destinations throughout the first quarter. Cashflow from operations increased by 24.6% to CHF 7.6 million (Q1 2018: CHF 6.1 million). Net debt was slightly reduced and reached CHF 244.9 million (Q1 2018: CHF 247.8 million).
The enhanced operational performance across all segments was reflected in the bottom-line figures: The Group recorded a net profit of CHF 1.0 million in Q1 2019 compared to a net loss of CHF 5.1 million in Q1 2018. It is important to note that Q1 2018 figures included Tamweel Group, Royal and Club Azur Hotels that were disposed in Q4 2018. When figures of Q1 2018 are normalized for the revenues of the disposals, then Q1 2019 revenues would have increased by 47.1% vs. CHF 66.7 million in Q1 2018; and net income would have reached CHF 1.0 million vs. a net loss of CHF 7.5 million in Q1 2018. "We are very pleased to see that ODH is performing strongly on its strategy and continues to deliver solid results which are positively hitting bottom line this quarter", states CEO Khaled Bichara.
Group Hotels: double digit growth in KPIs
In Q1 2019, the Hotels segment continued to show double digit growth compared to the same period of last year. A 14.9% increase in revenue was achieved, from CHF 40.2 million in Q1 2018 to CHF 46.2 million in Q1 2019, which resulted in an increase of 24% in GOP to CHF 20.6 million (Q1 2018: CHF 16.6 million). GOP PAR jumped from CHF 33 to CHF 39 in Q1 2019 due to further improvements in operational efficiency. The Hotel segment reported a 14.7% increase in the Adj. EBITDA to CHF 17.9 million (Q1 2018: CHF 15.6 million).
Group Real Estate: Solid operational and financial performance across all destinations
The Real Estate segment continued its operational and financial performance across all destinations. Net real estate sales increased by 166.1% to CHF 105.9 million in Q1 2019 (Q1 2018: CHF 39.8 million). Growth in sales was driven by the increase in unit sales in the newly launched first home market project "O West" as well as El Gouna, Makadi Heights, Hawana Salalah and Luštica Bay. 407 units were contracted representing a growth of 166% compared to the number of sold units in Q1 2018. Revenues increased by 86.1% to CHF 41.5 million (Q1 2018: CHF 22.3 million), on the back of increased deliveries in El Gouna, Hawana Salalah and Jebal Sifah in addition to the recognized land portion for the sold units in O West. Total deferred revenue from real estate that is yet to be recognized until 2021 reached CHF 277.6 million and total real estate portfolio receivable increased by 76% to CHF 375 million.
Group Destination Management: Continued growth thanks to successful restructuring
The Destination Management segment continued to grow as a result of the successful implementation of the restructuring started in 2018, in combination with the increase of events and activities across all destinations throughout the first quarter. Revenues increased by 40.5% to CHF 10.4 million in Q1 2019 compared to CHF 7.4 million in Q1 2018, signaling growth and additional contributions from all destinations.
For the full year 2019, ODH is targeting topline revenues of CHF 400 million and an Adjusted EBITDA within the range of CHF 74 million to CHF 77 million. These estimates exclude the contribution of Citadel Azur, Royal Azur, Club Azur hotels and Tamweel Group that the Group has identified as non-core assets and disposed in 2018. Thus, when FY 2018 figures are normalized for those assets, the targeted 2019 revenues represent a 25% growth from CHF 319 million in FY 2018 and the Adj. EBITDA represents 19%-24% growth from CHF 62 million in FY 2018. The Group is also envisaging new real estate net sales of CHF 445 million to CHF 470 million compared to CHF 200.6 million in 2018, capitalizing on its first home project "O West" and building on the positive momentum of El Gouna and Makadi Heights, Jebal Sifah, Hawana Salalah and Luštica Bay. Given the fact, that the hotel, tourism and real estate business shows some seasonality on a quarterly basis and due to the different destinations of ODH's operations and the revenue recognition model of the real estate business, quarterly results may show different levels of profitability/losses over the year.
Details on Destinations
Net real estate sales continued its positive momentum, capitalizing on the great demand from the launched projects "Cyan" and "Ancient Sands Villas". In Q1 2019, new inventory with a total value of USD 51.0 million was added in both projects. The launch phase included apartments and town houses. Net real estate sales increased by 15.5% to CHF 24.6 million vs. CHF 21.3 million in Q1 2018. It is worth mentioning that 20% of the sold units were sold to foreign clients signaling a good indication that the interest from foreigners is slowly coming back. Real estate revenues increased by 26.4% in Q1 2019 to reach CHF 16.3 million.
Destination Management revenues rose by 37.1% to CHF 8.5 million (Q1 2018: CHF 6.2 million). In April 2019 ODH successfully hosted El Gouna International Open Squash Championship 2019 and El Gouna Polo 2019.
First home market: O West, Egypt
It is worth mentioning that in 2019, only the land portion of the villas that were sold will be recognized as revenues, yet no positive margins will be reflected due to the upfront marketing and sales expenses that will be paid out this year. Revenues and positive margins will start to kick in starting the year 2020 onwards.
The huge success for O West which has been reflected in its sales figures, strongly reaffirms ODH's position as the market leader in building fully integrated towns and proves the company's success in penetrating the first home market in Egypt.
Hawana Salalah, Oman
The hotels in Salalah continued their operational excellence since the beginning of the year. With the completion of additional 177 rooms in Al Fanar Hotel, Oman accounted for 38% of the total segment revenue in Q1 2019. The company strategy, aimed at further diversifying markets, supported a growth in revenues by 29.8% to reach CHF 17.0 million in Q1 2019, up from CHF 13.1 million in Q1 2018. Occupancy rates reached 96% during Q1 2019. The hotels GOP increased 43.3% to CHF 8.6 million (Q1 2018: CHF 6.0 million). GOPPAR increased significantly from CHF 74 to CHF 89 based on a further improvement in ARR of 13.9% to CHF 123 in Q1 2019. Total revenues from Hawana Salalah increased by 95.5% to reach CHF 26.0 million compared to CHF 13.3 million in Q1 2018.
