Organic growth includes the improvement in sales recorded at recently-acquired facilities by comparison with the previous equivalent period. Strong growth in 2012 sales Yves Le Masne, CEO of the ORPEA group, commented: “ORPEA posted a remarkable performance in 2012, with sales rising by 15.8% to reach a record level of €1,429million, beating the guidance of €1,425million announced in November 2011. In a gloomy economic environment, ORPEA continued to deliver very healthy organic growth of 8.2%, representing a record increase in sales of more than €100million, owing in particular to the opening of 2,150 beds in 2012. Outside France, business was boosted by the strategic acquisitions completed in 2012. During the fourth quarter, international revenues grew by 75% to represent 16% of consolidated sales. This performance will lead to higher margins and cash flow, especially as a result of the ramp-up in the number of beds now at maturity, while the Group’s debt is tightly controlled, managed effectively and highly diversified.” Growth prospects and jobs to be created in 2013 ORPEA is set to keep its momentum going in 2013, by opening another 2,000 beds at some 20 or so facilities, all situated in high-quality locations. ORPEA will open new facilities at locations including Nantes, Guérande, Saint Laurent du Var, La Garenne Colombes, Le Cannet, Lyon and Chamalières, as well as in Nyon, Switzerland. Thanks to this active development policy and after having created over 7,000 jobs in the past five years, ORPEA is set to maintain its commitment to the regional economies by creating 1,200 sustainable jobs in the caring, residential and administrative sectors during 2013. The Group intends to keep this first-class growth momentum going during 2013 and confidently expects to generate sales of €1,600million (up 12%, including brisk organic growth), together with strong margins. Further developments in international markets In line with its strategy of international expansion, the Group completed deals on attractive terms in Belgium and Italy, representing 1,100 in new beds that will add significant value. ORPEA acquired 900 beds in Flanders, to speed up its expansion in this region blighted by a major shortage of facilities for the dependent elderly. This acquisition has tremendous potential, with 300 beds operational and another 600 beds under construction. In Italy, the Group is also expanding its network with the acquisition of two facilities in the Turin region, representing 200 beds. Dr Jean-Claude Marian, ORPEA’s Chairman, ended by saying: “ORPEA has delivered another year of remarkable growth, thanks in particular to the new facilities opened in France and expansion of its international network. This first-class momentum will carry through into 2013 and future years. In a sector in which demand for high-quality care for dependent individuals is growing tremendously right across Europe, ORPEA boasts unique strengths: *Growth potential of close to 8,000 beds under construction and being restructured, which is regularly topped up to secure its future expansion; *Recognition of its know-how, particularly its ability to support people suffering from neurodegenerative disorders, and pan-European expertise; *Its ability to invest and create jobs. As demonstrated by the recent deals in Flanders and Italy, ORPEA is actively pursuing its value-creating expansion in international markets. In France, the sector faces major challenges, with the growth in the population of the very elderly and the need to renovate close to 116,000 beds (i.e. 17% of current capacity), according to a public report by the Caisse Nationale de la Solidarité pour l’Autonomie), which will cost an estimated €11.7billion (excluding land).” Key dates for investors The following dates are subject to change.
