CEO’s comments in summary
Scandic delivers strong results, and adjusted EBITDA grew by 31.3 percent in the second quarter. Demand in all our markets was strong in the first six months and the summer season, but it is also evident that our commercial strategies are effective, and we are gaining market shares.
Commercial synergies and efficiency gains from the acquired Rica hotels continue to be realized according to plan, and the strength in our operating model became evident in connection with the Norwegian hotel strike, which had only a marginal effect on adjusted EBITDA.
Growth is well in line with expectations, and in the first six months, we opened five new hotels, two of which are prominent hotels in Stockholm. One of these hotels also represented the launch of our first signature hotel – Haymarket by Scandic.
We continue to take the positive view that market demand will remain favorable during the rest of the year.
Frank Fiskers
President & CEO
