  8. 8. Market Overview THE TOURISM ENVIRONMENT Although tourism has been seriously impacted by the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), 2010 saw a 7% increase in tourist arrivals worldwide with emerging economies, which include Africa, leading at 8% and a lower growth rate of 5% for the more advanced economies. This is according to UNWTO Tourism Barometer for the period January to August 2010. Africa as a region experienced a growth of 9%, part of which is attributed to the 2010 FIFA World Cup hosted in South Africa between June and July 2010. This is supported by the fact that African growth was spurred by sub-Saharan Africa where arrivals grew by 13% compared to the same period last year. In the countries where African Sun operates, there was a general growth in overnight visitor arrivals with South Africa recording the highest at 16%, whilst Ghana and Zimbabwe had slight increases of 1% which was lower than that achieved in 2009. Nigeria experienced a decline of approximately 2% in overnight visitors compared to the prior year. All these countries showed more or less the same trend in international visitor arrivals, with all statistics as reported by the World Travel and Tourism Council. Arrivals into African Sun therefore generally grew ahead of the market with Ghana at 5%, Nigeria 200%, South Africa 40% and Zimbabwe 25% compared to last year. International tourist arrivals are expected to continue with the growth trend forecasted at 4% in 2011 with emerging destinations continuing to lead. UNWTO Tourism Barometer forecasts that despite this growth the following challenges continue to plague the industry: increasing taxes on travel and tourism, visa restrictions and budget constraints in main source markets. Other industry related issues that must be taken into account are the trends in travel and tourism. There is a marked increase in outbound tourism demand from emerging economies. As a result a lot of diversification will be required within industry operations to cater for diverse market segments and innovation. New technologies and ways of communicating with customers will be required to meet the global travel and convenience needs of customers worldwide. Last but not least, greening is fast becoming an important factor in customer choice, hence ecologically responsible practices are essential with laws and regulations on this aspect expected to tighten in years to come. In addition, a large majority of international travel takes place within the traveller’s own region, with around four out of five arrivals worldwide originating from the same region. Domestic tourism is of equal importance. Worldwide, the number of domestic arrivals is estimated to exceed approximately four times the number of international arrivals. GROWTH THROUGH PARTNERSHIPS African Sun has continued to consolidate its position as a leading player in the tourism industry in Africa, despite the challenging economic times by investing in building strong relationships with strategic partners. The Group realises that it is through transparent dialogue, identifying shared agendas and working closely with governments, developers, financiers, suppliers, shareholders, employees and communities that African Sun will continue to increase its footprint on the African continent. Strong strategic partnerships and a dedicated management team have steered the organisation successfully through two recessions, the first being the ten-year economic downturn in Zimbabwe and the second, the global financial crisis. As a result African Sun is adept at adjusting to macroeconomic challenges and operating in some of the most difficult market conditions on the continent.08 AFRICAN SUN LIMITED ANNUAL REPORT 2010

  12. 12. Chairman’s Statement to our shareholders and potential partners bUSINESS ENVIRONMENT t he year began with the world emerging from a financial crisis and this has benefited our industry as evidenced by a 7% growth in global tourism. Sub-Saharan Africa experienced a growth of 8% compared to the previous period. The overall pattern of arrivals into our hotels from our major source markets mirrors this positive trend, with Zimbabwe experiencing a 58% growth from the prior year. At a Group level, our RevPAR in leased operations increased by 50% and we closed the year with an EBITDA margin of +0.7% from a negative position of minus 11.5% last year, Zimbabwe was the main contributor to this figure with an EBITDA margin of 6.7% compared to minus 8.4% last year. timothy chiganze – chairman Emerging markets continue to present attractive development opportunities and pipeline projects are on the upturn. This trend is expected to gain momentum in 2012 as Africa begins to attract more investors, coupled with the emergence of funds focused on hotel development in these markets. As a result of our geographical spread, we are geared to take advantage of both business and leisure travel within sub-Saharan Africa. The 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa was a success for our hotels with exceptional performance in June and July 2010. Occupancies post the event have dropped as a result of oversupply of rooms, which has not been matched by an increase in demand, resulting in reduced RevPAR mainly in the five-star market, notably in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. The mid-market hotels remain largely unaffected by the reduction in RevPAR. Zimbabwe is on a recovery path, and occupancies in the city hotels remain strong with the resort hotels showing signs of improvement. The multi-currency system which has prevailed for two years has brought some stability in the economy, slowing down inflation to between 4% and 5%. However, the major challenge has been poor liquidity, and this has tended to put pressure on borrowing costs. The oil rich hub of West Africa has responded to the global recovery by recording high GDP growth (Nigeria 9% and Ghana 7.2%) as a result of oil exports and improved fiscal policies. This is expected to spur business travel to the main cities in the foreseeable future. FINANCIAl REVIEW Revenue grew by 54% to US$54.2 million from US$35.2 million achieved last year, spurred by a strong RevPAR growth recorded in Zimbabwe and South Africa. The RevPAR increase was driven primarily by an occupancy recovery in the Zimbabwe hotels and an exceptional performance from the South African hotels during the 2010 FIFA World Cup period. Overall, we achieved an increase of 50% in RevPAR, up from US$24 last year to US$36 as occupancies surged to 45% from 32% last year. In absolute terms, cost of sales increased by 61.3% over last year, ahead of the increase of 54% in Revenue, as cost structures crystallised in US dollars and wages increased following dollarisation in Zimbabwe. The cost of sales percentage therefore increased from 34.3% last year to 36% in the year under review. This is however, an improvement from the 38% achieved in the last half of the prior year.12 AFRICAN SUN LIMITED ANNUAL REPORT 2010

  16. 16. Group Chief Executive’s Report review of operations g rowth returned to global tourism during the year under review as the world showed signs of recovery from the financial crisis. Emerging markets impacted positively on travel and this optimistic outlook has been evident in our business. We have seen major improvements in our occupancies, mainly in our Zimbabwe hotels. South Africa witnessed exceptional performance in June and July during the 2010 FIFA World Cup period but occupancies remain depressed as a result of an oversupply of rooms in the major cities of Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. Room rates remain depressed, especially in the five-star hotel market though we anticipate the mid-market hotels to remain buoyant and strategies will be implemented to take advantage of this trend. West Africa remains critical to our growth path and we remain on course to add more rooms in this enclave, in line with our business model. shingi munyeza – group chief executive zIMbAbWE Strong occupancies in the city hotels and the resurgence of foreign traffic to resort hotels resulted in occupancies closing at 46% compared to 32% last year. Foreign arrivals which now contribute 32% of room nights from 27% last year grew by 58%. Local arrivals constituting 68% of room nights grew by 36 % during the period under review. Turnover amounted to US$38.4 million, being 59% increase from US$24.1 million last year. Despite the strengthening of the Rand and increase in payroll and other costs, cost of sales of 31% was within budget, achieving an EBITDA of US$2.3 million (6.7% margin). City hotels contributed 56% to revenue and 85% to EBITDA, anchored by strong occupancies although room rates remain depressed. The contribution by resort hotels from both revenue and EBITDA are expected to improve as business into these hotels strengthens. From June to September 2010, Zimbabwe has been averaging occupancies of above 50%, a scenario last experienced in the 1990s when the tourism industry was at its peak. We expect to maintain these levels of growth at a sustainable pace as we expect liquidity in the market to improve and the increase in foreign travel to continue. RETAIl Hotelserve was acquired mainly as a means to enable the Group to enhance procurement efficiencies of imported hotel amenities vital to the business, at the onset of the dollarisation era. With our expansion into the sub-Saharan Africa region, we have begun to enjoy structural synergies for procurement, resulting in the subsidiary focusing more on supplying the retail market. We continue to look at future initiatives aimed at unlocking value from this operation as we fine tune our business model. Trade in this market is volume based with low margins and is sensitive to sectoral and macro-economic influences. The appreciation of the South African Rand and temporary ban on importation of meat and dairy products into Zimbabwe due to the outbreak of the Rift Valley fever in South Africa, affected the subsidiary’s margins leading to an EBITDA loss of US$226 072 for the year under review. SOUTH AFRICA During the 2010 FIFA World Cup period, performance in June and July was exceptional and saw our two hotels operating at 83% occupancy with a RevPAR of ZAR1 727, compared to a RevPAR of ZAR588 before the event. The performance of the two hotels was depressed before the World Cup due to the impact of the global economic slowdown. This was further worsened by an addition of rooms in the Rosebank and Sandton market leading to a reduction in occupancy of between 20 and 25 percentage points.16 AFRICAN SUN LIMITED ANNUAL REPORT 2010
