PARIS, FRANCE


Impact of the pandemic on annual turnover (- 20.8 %)

A resilient 4th quarter (- 12.0 %)

Paris, 9th December 2020, 18h00 - Groupe Partouche, one of the European gaming leaders, published today its consolidated turnover for the 4th quarter of 2020 (August to October 2020) and for the full fiscal year (September 2019 to October 2020).

Limited decline in activity during the 4th quarter, despite the phased closure of the casinos in October.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to a mandatory closure of all French casinos throughout the month of October 2020 thus disrupting the results of the 4th quarter. The closures were set up on the following dates: Lyon Pharaon, Lyon Vert and Saint Galmier on 10th October, Palavas on 12th October, Aix-en-Provence (already closed between 27th September and 9th October) and La Ciotat on 17th October. 18 other casinos were closed on 24th October and the last 14 on 29th October. Abroad, the casino in Crans-Montana (Switzerland) closed its doors on 21st October and the one in Ostend (Belgium) on 29th October.

To date, the French casinos are expected to resume operations on 15th December, subject to the evolution in the national health situation.

Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) for the 4th quarter 2020 reached € 155.0 M (- 13.3 %).
In France, GGR decreased by -16.9 % at € 124.8 M penalized by a drop in attendance which increased over the quarter due to the development of an anxiety-inducing communication about the worsening of the Covid-19 pandemic, ending with the closure of all casinos in October.

Abroad, the GGR sharply increased, up by + 6.1% to € 30.2 M, driven by the traditional games activity (+ 49.1%) and more particularly by the remarkable performance of online games and sports betting in Belgium (+ 90.3%) which are benefiting from the pandemic

Net Gaming Revenue (NGR) after levies decreased by - 5.3 % at € 77.0 M.

Globally, 4th quarter turnover amounted to € 93.9 M, down by - 12.0 %

Annual turnover decreased by -20.8% at € 343.5 M.

Over the 2020 financial year, GGR amounted to € 525.7 M down by - 21.8%. Thus, NGR after levies amounted to € 282.9 M, down by - 16.3%.

Overall, Groupe Partouche recorded an annual turnover of € 343.5 M, down by - 20.8% (- € 90.0 M) over one year.

The decline in activity inherent in the pandemic will automatically lead to a decline in the operating profitability over the period.

Nagasaki “Integrated Resort »

Following the press release published on 14th August, Groupe Partouche and its partner Pixel Companyz state that they have chosen Nagasaki to develop their future “integrated resort” in competition with three other consortia. The Nagasaki prefecture has received support from the prefectural and municipal councils, as well as the private sector in the Kyushu region. It is one of the few prefectures in Japan to have committed in launching an "integrated resort" and it relies on strong economic and political support from other prefectures in the Kyushu region.
