2020 was unprecedented because of the extent and duration of the pandemic, and ORPEA’s response showed its adaptability and resilience.
The company continued its development, adding 8,769 beds across the network, and moved into Ireland with two acquisitions (+961 beds). The proportion of beds in operation outside France was 62% in 2020 (versus 41% in 2014), with new facilities set up in all geographical zones. The pipeline of beds under construction rose by 21% in 2020 and 86% of them are located outside France.
Revenue amounted to €3,922 million in 2020, up 4.9%, driven by acquisitions in France and Ireland, and was stable in organic terms. EBITDAR totalled €963 million, equal to 24.6% of revenue, down 1.7 points relative to 2019 as a result of additional Covid-19-related costs estimated at €101 million after offsetting factors. Excluding Covid-19 effects, EBITDAR margin would have increased. ORPEA owns 47% of its buildings, which were valued at €6.8 billion at 31 December 2020, excluding buildings in the process of being sold. In 2021, the company is aiming to grow revenue by at least 6.0% to €4,155 million.
