Top-line growth was ahead of expectations with total revenue up 8% at EUR399m (consensus at EUR389m) after RevPAR rose 10.7% (6.8% anticipated). Despite this, EBITDA improved by only 5% to EUR65.5m (in line with consensus) affected by the digital plan (not yet fully detailed) and the ramp-up in new openings under lease contracts. The outlook remains bright especially in Spain and management now expects a mid-to-high single-digit RevPAR increase for 2016, versus mid-single digit previously. Positive.
