Filing of the 2019 Universal Registration Document
and abandonment of certain targets and outlook elements for 2020
The 2019 Aéroports de Paris Universal Registration Document was filed with the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) on 23 March 2020.
The document may be viewed and downloaded from the Group website (http://www.parisaeroport.fr/en/group/finance/amf-information, French text) and the AMF website (www.amf-france.org). The English-language version will be available shortly.
The following documents are included in the 2019 Universal Registration Document:
- the 2019 financial report,
- the corporate governance report,
- the information concerning the auditors' fees.
Given the uncertainties on the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Groupe will continue to inform the market on the economic impact that may result from it. In this regard, the following items should be noted.
To date, 2020 traffic assumptions1 of Groupe ADP are not relevant anymore. Groupe ADP considers that it will not be possible to reach the 2020 EBITDA forecasts1 nor the 2016-2020's financial targets of the Connect 2020 plan (traffic, EBITDA, regulated ROCE).
Consistently with the sensitivity analyses already conducted and with the traffic decrease assumptions in Paris and on other platforms managed by Airport International Group and TAV Airports around 65% on average on all destinations between the months of March and July, the loss in Groupe ADP's EBITDA in absolute terms would be approximately of 800 M€. This includes a decrease in revenue of the Parisian scope of 1 bn€ for its aviation and retail activities.
Groupe ADP intensifies its financial and operational optimization plan now valued at around 270 M€ for the entire group. Furthermore, the group has decided to resort to partial activity, affecting 80 % of the employees of the parent company (ADP SA).
It is reminded that this sensitivity analysis does not constitute a forecast nor a target. Furthermore, all estimates and prospective data contained in the present release may prove inexact and are, either way, subject to risks, particularly those mentioned here-above.
Given the aforementioned uncertainties and the evolving nature of the ongoing situation, Groupe ADP will communicate later on adjusted forecasts and will do, in any case, a progress report on or before the 2020 first quarter revenue release.
