Dates of consolidation: the disposals announced in France were deconsolidated from 1st April 2018, Dagelijks Leven in the Netherlands has been consolidated since 1st July 2018, and Axion, September and Allerzorg in the Netherlands have been consolidated since 1st January 2019.

Clusters’ composition: Central Europe (Germany, Italy, Switzerland), Eastern Europe (Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic), Iberian Peninsula (Spain, Portugal), other countries (China).

Q1 2019 revenue came to €909.9 million, up 9.4%. Half of the growth was organic and half came from acquisitions notably in Germany, the Netherlands and Portugal.

The 4.7% organic growth was driven by our key success factors:

  • consistently high occupancy rates across the network
  • the ramp-up in facilities opened over the past two years, mostly located in high purchasing power cities
  • the addition of 500 beds over the quarter, predominantly in Eastern Europe and Central Europe.

Partnership with Bpifrance and RDIF to develop post-acute and rehabilitation hospitals in Russia

In 2018, ORPEA signed a number of cooperation agreements at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) in the presence of Presidents Putin and Macron aiming to develop a network of health facilities across Russia.

In addition, ORPEA has recently entered into an operational partnership with Bpifrance and RDIF, the Russian sovereign wealth fund, to establish post-acute and rehabilitation hospitals in Russia. These prestigious partners will underpin and secure the development of ORPEA in Russia.

Under this agreement, an initial project has been agreed with the Russian government and Moscow city authorities to develop a post-acute and rehabilitation hospital at the Moscow International Medical Cluster. This facility will offer 200 beds of rehabilitation and 50 outpatient places and will specialise in orthopaedics, cardiology, neurology and oncology care. It is scheduled to open in 2022.

The Russian government is willing to set up a leading contender in this still developing industry. Its goal is to jointly establish a network of post-acute and rehabilitation hospitals across the country to help Russian patients recover and return to work and/or living at home.

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

“Our growth accelerated during the first quarter of 2019, lifting our revenue 9.4% to €910 million. This strong performance is supported by the two core pillars of our strategy: a strong organic growth of 4.7% and the contribution of selective acquisitions.

Furthermore, in line with our strategy of international expansion, the partnership with the sovereign fund RDIF and Bpifrance aiming to develop a post-acute and rehabilitation offer in Russia, presents a significant potential given the limited number of existing facilities in this country, and also illustrates ORPEA’s leadership in the European market.

Following a dynamic first-quarter, we are confidently reiterating our guidance of over €3,700 million in revenue (+8.2%) and solid profitability.”
