Decrease in 9 months turnover of 23.6 % at € 249.6 M

Paris, 9th September 2020, 06:00 pm - Groupe Partouche, one of the European gaming leaders, published today its consolidated turnover for the 3rd quarter of the fiscal year 2020 (May - July).

Let it be reminded as a preamble:

  • all the Group's casinos were closed until 2nd June (a minimum), thus affecting the activity for the quarter by 32 days,
  • the establishments were reopened gradually. French casinos reopened on 2nd June. At that date, only slot machines and electronic traditional games were authorized, with table games resuming activity on 22nd June. Abroad, Swiss casinos only reopened on 6th June and the Ostend casino in Belgium on 1st July.

3rd quarter resilient activity

At the end of 3rd quarter 2020, Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) reached € 109.1 M (-33,7 %).

In France, the GGR stands at € 87.9 M. The 36.4 % decrease is the result of the closure of casinos in May, a phased resumption of the full range of games and the fact that the table games operations are made more complex by physical distancing and the strict sanitary rules implemented by the Group in order to guarantee the safety of its employees and customers.

However, in July, the only full month of operation, attendance increased by almost 2% and the GGR was generally stable over the same period (-0.5 %), despite the necessary health measures put in place.

Abroad, the very strong increase in the GGR from online games and sports betting in Belgium (+67.5 %) made it possible to limit the decline in the Group’s GGR to -19.7 % at € 21.3 M.

After levies, the Net Gaming Revenue (NGR) came to € 56.3 M (-27.3 %).

Globally, 3rd quarter turnover was € 66.0 M, down by -37.1 % (after -46.0 % in 2nd quarter 2020) and cumulative revenue for 9 months at € 249.6 M, a more limited contraction of -23.6%, with a decrease of -19.8% in NGR at € 206 M.

Award of concessions in Belgium

Groupe Partouche has won the call for tenders to operate the Middelkerke casino in Belgium, as of 2022.

On 31st July 2020, the Belgian Council of State once again decided to suspend the decision issued early 2019, to award the Ostend casino to the IGK company.

4- Glossary

The "Gross Gaming Revenue" corresponds to the sum of the various operated games, after deduction of the payment of the winnings to the players. This amount is debited of the "levies" (i.e. tax to the State, the city halls, CSG, CRDS). The «Gross Gaming Revenue» after deduction of the levies, becomes the "Net Gaming Revenue ", a component of the turnover.
