LIPTOVSKÝ MIKULÁŠ (July 31, 2023) –Tatry mountain resorts, a.s. („TMR“, the „Company“) published its financial results for the first six months of the financial year 2022/2023, as of April 30, 2023. The Group’s consolidated revenues were almost EUR 41 mil. higher during the reporting period, than during the same time last year. The operating profit before depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) increased by 104.7% to EUR 43.1 mil., and the net profit reached nearly EUR 18 million.
Key performance indicators in individual segments showed significant growth compared to the previous half-year, which reflected in higher revenues.
„ The results for the first half year are particularly solid compared to the first half of the last fiscal year, when our resorts were affected by epidemiological measures against COVID-19 at the beginning of winter season. Our mountain resorts in Slovakia had a successful winter season – important factors were the higher altitude as well as a high-quality snowmaking system, in which we have invested intensively in recent years. In Jasná as well as in High Tatras, we recorded a significant increase in visit rate and average revenue per visitor. On the contrary, due to the high temperatures at the beginning of January, the resorts in the Czech Republic and Poland did not meet the expected plan of sales and guests, which, compared to the same period last year, meant as well a decline in visit rate and sales revenue. More guests showed interest in skiing in Austrian resorts than a year ago, which contributed to higher sales, but due to unfavorable weather, we were unable to fulfill the plan, similarly to Poland and the Czech Republic, “commented Igor Rattaj, Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of TMR.
