Comments from the CEO

Q3 2019 was another good quarter with strong EBITDA growth

More in detail, in the quarter we achieved an EBITDA of MEUR 58.9 (an increase of 46.5% and with 6.6 pp margin improvement). This is partly explained by the implementation of the new accounting standard for leases (IFRS 16), but nevertheless, the adjusted EBITDA increased 20.6% and the adjusted margin improved 2.7 pp. The quarter revenues show a 3.4% growth, with strong support from new openings and ramp-up of 2018 renovations.

During the quarter we continued the very important and intensive work on the five year plan intitiatives in all operational areas, buidling for future growth.

The growth of the company is also relying on new signings and I am very pleased with the signing of close to 9,400 rooms year-to-date, which is well ahead of plan and now targets to over achieve the record threshold of 10,000 in the year.

In the beginning of October we excercised our rights to acquire full ownership in prizeotel. The prizeotel team has done a fantastic job over the past few years growing the pipeline to four hotels in operation and 16 under development in strategic German-speaking countries.
