Anavita in the Czech Republic has been consolidated since 1st April 2017, Dr. Dr. Wagner in Austria since 1st July 2017, Inoges in Germany since 1st January 2018 and Woonzorgnet in the Netherlands since 1st April 2018.

The asset disposals in France were deconsolidated with effect from 1st April 2018.

Yves Le Masne, Chief Executive Officer of ORPEA, commented:

“We recorded again a sustained revenue increase of 9.4% in the second quarter of 2018 to €846.8 million. This virtuous and continuous growth combines a strong organic growth of 5.1% and the contribution from the acquisitions in Austria, Germany and the Netherlands.

During the first half of the year, the revenue reached €1,679 million –equivalent to the full-year revenue just five years ago. The pace of growth remains consistently strong across all geographical regions.

The first-half 2018 organic growth was again very strong and higher than expected as a result of:

  • consistently high occupancy rates across the network
  • openings of new facilities over the past two years, of which 1,600 new beds in the first half across ORPEA’s network of 11 European countries.

This organic growth was supported by ORPEA’s constant long-term vision of developing projects for new facilities in prime locations, which can often take four to five years to unfold.

Leveraging our positions in 13 countries, we continue to execute an active expansion strategy focused on value creation by significantly scaling up our growth pipeline of beds under construction and going ahead with several selective acquisitions. In line with our core values, we continue our development while ensuring a high quality of care for our residents and patients as well a high-quality training for our staff.

For the full-year 2018, the Group now forecasts revenue of over €3,400 million, an EBITDA margin higher or equal to the 2017 level as well as further organic developments and acquisitions.”
