  • Groupe ADP's traffic: +0.4%, at 58 million passengers[3] over the first quarter of 2019 (vs. 57.8 million passengers over the same period in 2018), explained by the domestic traffic decrease registered in the Turkish airports of TAV Airports
  • Paris Aéroport[4] traffic: +4.1%, at 23.7 million passengers (vs. 22.8 million passengers over the first quarter of 2018), thanks to international traffic (+5.5%) and the dynamism of low-cost companies (+4.8%)
  • Aviation activities (+3.8%): growth in airport fees (+5.5%, at €253 million) due to the increase in tariffs as of 1 April 2018 (+2.125%)[5] and the good traffic growth
  • Retail and services (+7.5%): good dynamics of retail activities (+6.0%, at €111 million) driven by the results of airside shops (+11.0%) and bars & restaurants (+5.3%). The sales/pax[6] increased over the first quarter of 2019 (+3.7%, at €19.3), due to the progressive shops reopening of terminal 2E Hall L at Paris-Charles de Gaulle after works, and the full effect of the shops opening  of 2018 second semester
  • Real Estate (+8.2%): increase of external revenue (+6.2%, at €69 million) driven by new contracts

Augustin de Romanet, Chairman and CEO of Aéroports de Paris SA - Groupe ADP, stated :
 "2019 first quarter revenue increased by 11.9%, at €1,080 million driven by a very good performance of all the activities of the group. In Paris, the commercial activities growth continues to be sustained and the sales per passenger of the airside shops was up to €19.3. Regarding the international activities, TAV Airports reports good results concerning 2019 first quarter despite a decreasing domestic traffic and the Turkish lira depreciation. The commercial flights of the Istanbul Atatürk Airport were transferred to the new Istanbul Airport on 6 April 2019. Since Paris Aéroport traffic figures over 2019 first quarter were very good (+4.1%), the traffic growth assumption is revised for 2019, between +2.5% and +3.0%, against +2.0% and +2.5% previously. All our other 2019 assumptions are confirmed."


First quarter of 2019 consolidated revenue - Analysis by segment

Aviation activities - Parisian platforms

(in millions of euros) Q1 2019 Q1 2018 2019/2018
Revenue 442 426 +3.8%
Airport fees 253 240 +5.5%
Passenger fees 155 147 +5.9%
Landing fees 59 56 +5.3%
Parking fees 39 37 +4.4%
Ancillary fees 61 61 -0.4%
Revenue from airport safety and security services 119 116 +2.7%
Other income 9 9 +0.7%

Over the first quarter of 2019, the Aviation segment revenue, which includes only Parisian activities, was up by 3.8%, at €442 million.

Revenue from airport fees (passenger fees, landing fees and aircraft parking fees) was up by 5.5%, at €253 million, benefiting from the passenger traffic growth (+4.1%) and the increase of tariffs as of 1 April 2018. As a reminder, tariffs (excluding PRM[9] fees) had increased by 2.125% as of 1 April 2018. These tariffs have increased by +1.0% since 1 April 2019.

Ancillary fees were stable at €61 million thanks to the traffic growth, and despite minor deicing revenues (2019 winter was warmer than in 2018).

Revenue from airport safety and security services was up by 2.7%, at €119 million. It should be noted that since April 1st 2019, the article 179 of Law No. 2018-1317 of 28 December 2018 of finance, takes into account the introduction of the mechanism charging Aéroports de Paris 6% of the costs hitherto fully covered by the airport tax.

Other income, which mostly consists in re-invoicing the French Air Navigation Services Division and leasing associated with the use of terminals and other works services made for third parties, was nearly stable, at €9 million.

 

Retail and services - Parisian platforms

(in millions of euros) Q1 2019 Q1 2018 2019/2018
Revenue 248 230 +7.5%
Retail activities 111 105 +6.0%
Airside shops 77 70 +11.0%
Landside shops 4 4 -4.0%
Bars and restaurants 11 10 +5.3%
Advertising 10 10 -1.8%
Others 9 10 -10.0%
Car parks and access roads 40 40 +1.1%
Industrial services revenue 40 36 +11.2%
Rental income 37 37 +0.7%
Other income 19 13 +46.2%

Over the first quarter of 2019, the revenue from Retail and services, which includes only Parisian activities, was up by 7.5%, at €248 million.

Revenue from retail activities (rents received from airside and landside shops, bars and restaurants, banking and foreign exchange activities and car rental companies, as well as revenue from advertising) was up by 6.0%, at €111 millions.

  • Among this item, the rents from airside shops stood at €77 million, up by 11.0%, linked to the positive evolution of the traffic mix, a positive exchange rate and good performances of Luxury Fashion and Core Business segments.

The progressive reopening of the shops in the terminal 2E Hall L at Paris-Charles de Gaulle after works and the full effect of the shops opening of 2018 second semester (notably with Louis Vuitton) contribute at the SPP[10] improvement, up by 3.7%, at €19.3, compared to 18.6 € during the first quarter of 2018;

  • The total amount of rents from landside shops is down by 4.0%, at €4 million;
  • The rents from bars and restaurants were up 5.3%, at €11 million, notably linked to the traffic growth and the the joint venture EPIGO development (+7.2% in revenues);
  • Média Aéroports de Paris' revenue decreased by 5.6%, at 10.8 million, linked to the decreasing performance of the bright advertising media and the decrease of technical fees re-invoicing for the events on offer.

The other income of retail activities decreased by 10%, at €9 million after the implementation of new markets concerning exchange and tax refund as of 2019. These contracts, that were historically own managed by ADP are now managed through SDA. Therefore, over the first quarter of 2019, this change has led to a reclassification from "other incomes of commercials activities" to "commercial fees".

Revenue from car parks was slightly increasing (+1.1%), at €40 million.

Revenue from industrial services (supply of electricity and water) were up by 11.2%, at €40 million.

Rental revenues (leasing of spaces within terminals) were stable at €37 million.

Other revenues (primarily constituted of internal services) increased by €6 million, at €19 million, notably thanks to the increase of the revenue linked to the works for the project Société du Grand Paris.

Real Estate - Parisian platforms

(in millions of euros) Q1 2019 Q1 2018 2019/2018
Revenue 80 74 +8.2%
External revenue 69 65 +5.6%
Land 29 27 +8.0%
Buildings 17 16 +0.7%
Others 23 22 +6.2%
Internal revenue 10 10 +0.1%
Other income and expenses  1 (1) +€2m

Over the first quarter of 2019, real estate revenue, which includes only Parisian activities, was up by 8.2%, at €80 million.

External revenue[11] was up by 5.6%, at €69 million, driven by new contracts and rental expenses re-invoicing.

Internal revenue was stable at €10 million.


International and airports developments

(in millions of euros) Q1 2019 Q1 2018 2019/2018
Revenue 334 256 +30.4%
ADP Ingénierie 11 10 +11.4%
ADP International 57 3 +€54 m
Of which AIG 53 - N/A
TAV Airports 264 243 +9.0%
Of which Istanbul Atatürk 115 111 +3.6%

Over the first quarter of 2019, revenue from International and airports developments stood at €334 million (+30.4% compared with 2018) mainly due to the full integration of AIG since April 2018.

Excluding the full integration of AIG's results, revenue would have been up by 9.5%.

ADP International saw its revenue increase by €54 million, at €57 million. Excluding the full consolidation of AIG, revenue from ADP International stood at €4 million over the first quarter of 2019.

ADP Ingénierie revenue was up by 11.4%, at €11 million, following the integration of Merchant Aviation since July 2018. As of 31 March 2019, ADP Ingénierie's backlog stood at €79 million, compared to 57 million at the end of March 2018.

Over the first quarter of 2019, the contribution of TAV Airports to Groupe ADP's revenue stood at €264 million, vs. €243 million as of 31 March 2018 (+8.6%). TAV Airports' revenue had been driven by:

  • the dynamism of international tourism in Turkey (+11.6%);
  • the traffic growth recorded on the other platforms outside of Turkey, notably in Tunisia (+42.7%) and Georgia (+12.9%);
  • the revenue generated by GIS, specialized in the management of VIP airports lounges, acquired in January 2019 (+€6 million).

The combination of these effects allows to compensate the domestic traffic decrease registered in the Turkish airports of TAV Airports (-1.5% compared to the 2018 first quarter) and the negative effect over the revenue of the Turkish lira depreciation compared with Euro, in the order of 30% in average over the 2019 first quarter (vs. 2018 first quarter), being broadly neutral at the level of EBITDA.

The revenue linked to Istanbul Atatürk Airport stood at €115 million over the first quarter of 2019 (vs €111 million over the first quarter of 2018).

Following the transfer of commercial flights of Istanbul Atatürk to the new Istanbul airport on April 6 2019[12], the dispositions regarding the IFRS 5 standard must apply to TAV Istanbul as of this date.

Therefore, concerning 2019 half-year and full-year results', the full 2019 revenue and operating expenses of TAV Istanbul (i.e. as of 01/01/2019) will be separately presented on the income statement as "Net income from non-continuing operations ". The Group consolidated revenue, EBITDA and operating income from ordinary activities won't take into account the Istanbul Atatürk airport activity any more (€115 million for Q1 2019 vs €111 million for Q1 2018).

Other activities

(in millions of euros) Q1 2019 Q1 2018 2019/2018
Products 40 37 +9.4%
Hub One 35 36 -2.8%
Others 5 1 + 4 M €

Over the first quarter of 2019, the other activities segment revenue increased by 9.4%, at €40 million, mainly linked to reimbursement of studies and works made for the project CDG Express (+€4 million).

Hub one saw its revenue decreased by 2.8%, at €35 million, due to external contracts renegotiation.

2021-2025 Economic Regulation Agreement - Availability of the public consultation document

Groupe ADP has published, the 2 April 2019, the document which presents its detailed proposals for 2021-2025 Economic Regulation Agreement, for the development of Parisian platforms. This document is available at the following address: https://www.parisaeroport.fr/en/group/finance/. Users and other stakeholders may submit their comments on this document to the Minister of Transport and the General Directorate for Competition Policy, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Control within one month from the 2 April 2019, period potentially extended by fifteen days by decision of the Minister of Transport.

As a reminder, the five-year Economic Regulation Agreement, concluded with the State, constitutes the basic regulatory framework for Parisian airports, precising the nature and the amount of planned investments, the expected quality service level and the airport fees increase for the next five years.

This document reflects Groupe ADP's ambition for the Parisian platforms and the conviction that the investments quality it realizes for the benefit of passengers, airlines and partners bases Parisian platforms competitiveness. Consequently, the proposed investment plan represents a new step, both in terms of amounts and development horizons. It will not only meet the needs of the 2021-2025 period but also launch structuring operations in favor of the long-term development of the three Parisian platforms.

For this, Groupe ADP proposes to carry out an investment plan on the regulated scope of 6 billion euros over the 2021-2025 period (as a reminder, the Economic Regulation Agreement for the 2016-2020 period retained an investment plan of 3 billion euros).

Transfer of commercial flights from Atatürk to New Istanbul Airport

TAV Istanbul had the right to operate Ataturk Airport International and Domestic Terminal Building, Parking Garage and General Aviation Terminal for 15.5 years, from 03.07.2005 00.01 hours until 02.01.2021 24.00 hours as per the lease contract entered into with State Airports Authority ("DHMI"). However, by the Turkish authorities' decision, all commercial flights have been transferred to the new Istanbul Airport, as of April 06 2019 02:00. Following this transfer, TAV has provided DHMI with all the assets it has built on the airport.

In the TAV Airports' Public Disclosure made on January 22, 2013 TAV Airports announced that in the formal letter addressed to their company by State Airports Authority (DHMI), DHMI had stated that it would reimburse TAV Airports for loss of profit that may be incurred due to opening of the New Istanbul Airport before the end of TAV Istanbul's lease period which ends on January 3, 2021 and independent companies may be consulted for the calculation of the total amount of the loss of profit.

The compensation for loss of profit for early termination of Ataturk Airport operations is currently being evaluated by DHMI and TAV. Independent companies are also consulted as part of these evaluations. TAV expects to receive a formal notification of this compensation from DHMI.
