The Annual Report has been completed with the audited consolidated financial statements. Consequently, the Board of the Directors’ performance review has been amended. The notes of the consolidated financial statements also include the projected impact of the COVID-19 pandemics on the TMR Group. The released consolidated results include the period of 12 months of the financial year 2018/19 (the period from November 1, 2018 to October 31, 2019).
In the prior year, the Group’s total consolidated revenues reached EUR 127.592 mil., an increase of 17.9%. Revenues were positively impacted mainly by a higher visit rate in the Szczyrk resort, “flexi pricing” especially in Jasná, the acquisition of Austrian resorts of Mölltaler Gletscher and Ankogel, the new golf segment, ancillary services, the operations of the hotel portfolio and real estate projects. Revenues also includes the one-off impact of sales, advertising and accommodation from the World Cup in Alpine Skiing in Špindlerův Mlýn, organized by TMR. Excluding the one-off effects and acquisitions, revenues improved by 11.8% year-over-year.
Another TMR’s key financial performance indicator – EBITDA – reached EUR 35.496 mil.; which means an increase of 3.9%. On the like-for-like basis EBITDA increased year-over-year 15.2%. Cost of materials and goods sold grew by 36.1%, mainly due to the construction of apartments and chalets. Personnel and operating costs were up 18.0%. The rise in personnel and operating costs was caused mainly by the pressure of the labor market to raise wages, an increase in the minimum wage, hiring of new employees for the central department, and acquisitions. The resorts of Mölltaler Gletscher and Ankogel also had a negative impact on EBITDA. Since they were acquired after the winter season, they did not generate revenues high enough to cover their operating costs in the summer season. TMR’s operating profitability ratio (EBITDA margin) reached the level of 27.8%.
The Group recognized a net consolidated loss in the amount of EUR -2.288 mil, a decrease compared to EUR 3.095 mil. in the prior period, due to higher operating costs, interest expense, depreciation, and impairment of property. The parent company reported a net profit of EUR 4.087 mil.
