HMSHost Reports Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014

HMSHost reported earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. Revenues in the third quarter 2014 amounted to $696.2 million, down 1.4% on $709.6 million in the same period in 2013 (down 1.9% at current rates). The reduction in revenues is due entirely to the exit from the consolidation boundary of the US Retail Division20, which in 3rd quarter 2013 contributed revenues of $46.7 million. Net of said change in the boundary, sales in this area are in fact up 5.6% (up 5.0% at current rates). The channel that contributed most to the increase in Revenue was the airport channel, which grew 6.8% as a whole (6.4% at current rates). HMSHost's Ebitda amounted to $99.1 million, down 0.7% (down 1.5% at current rates) on the $100.6 million posted in the third quarter 2013, the ratio to revenues being stable at 14.2%. Total revenues by HMSHost in the first nine months of 2014 amounted to $1,914.1 million, down 1.5% (down 2.1% at current rates) on $1,955.2 million in the first nine months of 2013 due to the change in the consolidation area (transfer of the US Retail Division, which contributed $131.1 million). Net of such change, revenues are up 5.7% (up 4.9% at current rates), due mainly to the increase in the average spend. HMSHost's Ebitda in the first nine months amounted to $222.8 million, up 1.2% (0.4% at current rates) on $222.0 million in the same period in 2013. Excluding the contribution of the US Retail Division in 2013 ($7 million) and re-organization costs ($3.4 million in 2014 and $2.3 million in 2013), Ebitda rose 5% (4.1% at current rates). The Ebitda margin was 11.6% against 11.4% in the first nine months of the previous year.
