Augustin de Romanet, Chairman and CEO, stated:
"Over the first 3 months of 2021, group traffic is down by 60.2% compared to the first quarter of 2020, with a total of 24.9 million passengers and traffic at Paris Aéroport is down by 75.1%, with 4.7 million passengers. The crisis linked to the Covid-19 pandemic continues to affect the aviation sector and weight on the resumption of the traffic. All the group's activities have been heavily impacted over the 1st quarter of 2021 and the consolidated revenue has decreased by 48.0% over the first 3 months of 2021, at €474 million. Nevertheless, the strong increase in the Sales/Pax, of almost 31% compared to the first quarter of 2020, at €26.1, confirms the strength of the travel retail business model of the Parisian platforms. The group is continuing its efforts to stabilize its financial position by carefully managing its expenses and demonstrating agility and flexibility in the management of its infrastructure. In addition, Groupe ADP maintains a solid cash position, ensuring a satisfying level of liquidity. The group confirms its traffic assumptions and forecasts and anticipates a return to 2019 traffic levels in Paris between 2024 and 2027. In this context, the objective of a net financial debt [6] /EBITDA [7] ratio of 6x to 7x by the end of 2022 is maintained."
