Elegant Hotels Group Plc Announces Second Dividend for the Year Ended September 30, 2016; Provides Revenue Guidance for the Year Ended September 30, 2016; Announces Agreement to Bring New Hotel in Antigua

Elegant Hotels Group Plc announced that the Board has paid an interim dividend for the period to September 30, 2016 of 3.5 pence per ordinary share. The board intends to follow this with a second dividend of 3.5 pence in February 2017, representing a total of 7.0 pence per ordinary share for the year ended September 30, 2016. The company provided revenue guidance for the year ended September 30, 2016. The Board believes it is prudent to have a cautious outlook, with Group revenue for the current year currently expected to be broadly flat in comparison with the fiscal year 2015. The company also announced that it has reached an agreement in principle to bring a 123-room luxury hotel in Antigua into Elegant Hotels' portfolio under a management contract. The hotel is currently under construction and is expected to open its doors in mid to late 2017. The 193 rooms that will be added to Elegant Hotels' portfolio as a result of the Waves acquisition and the New Management Contract represent a 40% increase since the company's admission to AIM in May 2015.

Net debt was down USD 42.0 million to USD 54.8 million (first half of 2015: USD 96.8 million) due to the use of the IPO proceeds, partially offset by increased borrowings of USD 20.5 million for Waves Hotel & Spa. The interim dividend for the period of 3.5 pence per share will be paid on 15 July 2016 to shareholders on the register on 24 June 2016, and the Company's ordinary shares will become ex-dividend on 23 June 2016. With the major booking period now over, the Board expects full year like for like sales to be slightly below fiscal year 2015, and consequently adjusted EBITDA for the full year to 30 September 2016 is now expected to be between USD 20 million and USD 21 million.
