Traffic of Groupe ADP increased by 7.6% in 2018 to reach 281.4 million passengers propelling the Group to be the leading airport operating group in the world in terms of passenger numbers.
2018 results are excellent for all the activities. In 2018, revenue was up by 24% to €4,478 million and EBITDA was up by 25% to €1,961 million. Net income attributable to the Group grew by 6.9% to €610 million, and allows to propose a dividend payment of €3.70 per share at the next General Meeting.
The year 2018 has seen the acceleration of the infrastructure works as planned by the Economic Regulation Agreement covering the 2016-2020 tariff period necessary to accommodate sustained traffic growth on Parisian platforms.
Abroad, it also saw the deployment of the strategy of the Groupe ADP with the take-over of Airport International Group, concessionary of Amman international airport in Jordan. TAV Airports posted excellent results thanks notably to the traffic growth of 10.4% and to the acquisition of the management company of Antalya aiport since May 2018.
Groupe ADP is following its trajectory and, thanks to good traffic performance and financial discipline, is revising some of its objectives for 2020, in particular the regulated ROCE. This performance will be put at the service of the long-term growth of our infrastructures.
Let's meet on April 20th for the General Meeting of Shareholders.
Augustin de Romanet
Chairman & Chief Executive Officer
