Augustin de Romanet, Chairman and CEO of Aéroports de Paris SA - Groupe ADP, stated : 
"2019 first quarter revenue increased by 11.9%, at €1,080 million driven by a very good performance of all the activities of the group. In Paris, the commercial activities growth continues to be sustained and the sales per passenger of the airside shops was up to €19.3.
Regarding the international activities, TAV Airports reports good results concerning 2019 first quarter despite a decreasing domestic traffic and the Turkish lira depreciation. The commercial flights of the Istanbul Atatürk Airport were transferred to the new Istanbul Airport on 6 April 2019. Since Paris Aéroport traffic figures over 2019 first quarter were very good (+4.1%), the traffic growth assumption is revised for 2019, between +2.5% and +3.0%, against +2.0% and +2.5% previously. All our other 2019 assumptions are confirmed.

[2] Unless otherwise stated, percentages are comparing Q1 2019 to Q1 2018 comparable data.

[3] TAV Airports' traffic is taken into account at 100% according to their financial communication. However, following the acquisition of a 49%-stake in Antalya airport, traffic of this airport is 100%-included since January 2018 for the need of the analysis, while TAV Airports only has included Antalya traffic since May 2018.

[5] Over the 1st April 2018 to the 31 March 2019 period, the tariffs increase is +2.125% (excluding persons with reduced mobility fees).
[6] Estimation of airside shops' revenue per departing passenger.
[7] Following the transfer of commercial flights of Istanbul Atatürk to the new Istanbul airport on April 6 2019 (i.e. press release of 8 April 2019), the dispositions regarding the IFRS 5 standard must apply to TAV Istanbul as of this date. Therefore, concerning the half-year and full-year results for 2019, the full 2019 revenue and operating expenses of TAV Istanbul (i.e. as of 01/01/2019) will be separately presented on the income statement as "Net income from non-continuing operations ". The Group consolidated revenue, EBITDA and operating income from ordinary activities won't take into account the Istanbul Atatürk airport activity any more (revenues of €115 million for Q1 2019 vs €111 million for Q1 2018).
[8] Takes into account the introduction of the mechanism charging Aéroports de Paris 6% of the costs hitherto fully covered by the airport tax, in accordance with Article 179 of Law No. 2018-1317 of 28 December 2018 of finance.
