Augustin de Romanet, Chairman and CEO of Aéroports de Paris SA - Groupe ADP, stated:

"2018 first quarter revenue, including the full consolidation of TAV Airports, increased by 37.3%, to €965 million, driven by the international and European traffic dynamic, with a favourable impact on airport fees. Those will benefit from 1 April 2018 from the increase in tariffs by 2.125%. Retail activities growth keeps on being driven by the dynamism of bars and restaurants. Sales in airside shops per passenger is down, negatively impacted by strong Euro and important works in terminal 2E. Abroad, TAV Airports posted good results for 2018 first quarter with a strong growth in traffic. Then, Groupe ADP, through its subsidiary ADP International, finalized a few days ago, the transaction for the ownership of 51% of the capital and the control of Airport International Group, concessionary of Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, Jordan. Regarding this 1st quarter revenue, our forecasts are confirmed."

(1) Restatement linked to the norm IFRS 15. Please see below.

Please note that the new norm IFRS 15 must be implemented for all financial period starting from 1 April 2018. This norm modifies the principles for revenue recognition (other than those relative to lease contracts) and has, in particular, a repercussion on the methodology for accounting the revenue recognized using the percentage of completion method. Its implementation led to €4 million on ADP International revenue for 2017 1st quarter revenue. The data presented here takes into account this restatement.

Over the 1st quarter of 2018, revenue from International and airport developments stood at €256 million due to the full consolidation of TAV Airports[13] since 7 July 2017.

Excluding the full consolidation of TAV Airports, 2018 first quarter revenue for the segment would have been down by 15.5%.

ADP Ingénierie's revenue decreased by 7.9%, at €10 million. At the end of March 2018, ADP Ingénierie's backlog amounted to €57 million.

ADP International saw its revenue decrease strongly by 33.7%, to €3 million, due to the negative base effect of the end of a mission of assistance for commissioning Zagred Airport's new terminal that occurred during the 1st quarter of 2017.

TAV Airports' revenue stood at €243 million.

Other activities

(in millions of euros) Q1 2018 Q1 2017 Q1 2018/ Q1 2017

Hub One 36 37 -1.4%
Hub Safe   -  19 n/a

Over the 1st quarter of 2018, other activities segment revenue decreased by 34.4%, to €37 million due to the change in Hub Safe consolidation method since 29 September 2017. The entity's results are now integrated as share in associates from non-operating activities, following the sale by Groupe ADP of 80% of its stake in the entity.

Hub One saw its revenue decrease by 1.4%, to €36 million, due to renegociation of intragroup contracts, without impact on the consolidated revenue.

Groupe ADP acquires the exclusive control of Airport International Group, concessionary of Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, Jordan

On 19 April 2018, Groupe ADP, through its 100%-subsidiary ADP International, announced the finalization of the transaction for the ownership of 51% of the capital, and the exclusive control of Airport International Group (« AIG »), concessionary of Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) in Amman, Jordan. The new co-shareholders with which Groupe ADP invests are the infrastructures investment funds Meridiam and IDB Infrastructure Fund II. Edgo, already present, remains co-shareholder. Groupe ADP's investment stands at $265 million.

With this operation, Groupe ADP, already shareholder of AIG with a 9.5%-stake will fully consolidate the financial accounts of the concessionary firm.

Operator of QAIA since the beginning of the concession (25 years) in 2007, Groupe ADP has contributed to the performance and growth of the airport over the last ten years. Since 2007, traffic has been growing in average by 6.5% per year and a new terminal was built in 2013, then extended in autumn 2016, raising the airport capacity to 12 million passengers.

With the takeover of AIG, Groupe ADP will be able to spread its know-how, its expertise and its services offer. The objectives are to reinforce the air network departing from Amman, improve the quality of service offered to passengers and the performance of aviation and retail activities, and, at last, ensure a sustainable and socially responsible development during the remaining duration of the concession (until 2032).

A reference airport in the Middle East

Queen Alia International Airport handles 98% of Jordanian traffic. It is the base and hub of Royal Jordanian Airlines and the gateway for the main touristic spots of the country, especially Petra, the Dead Sea and Wadi Rum desert.

It welcomed 7.9 million passengers in 2017, an increase of 6.8% compared to 2016 and 1.8 million passengers between January and March 2018, an increase of 8.5% compared to the same period in 2018. For 2017 financial year, AIG's EBITDA reached €66.3 million.

This airport was ranked by the Airport Council International (ACI) second best airport of its category (more than 2 million passengers) in the Middle East, on the basis of the survey Airport Service Quality (ASQ/ACI) 2017, the most important worldwide reference programme regarding airport passengers satisfaction. Finally, it is the first airport in the Middle East to reach the level 3+ of the ACA Carbon accreditation, that is to say, the carbon neutrality.
