Autogrill: “In the first eight weeks of 2010: sales up 2.7% at constant exchange rates4 (up 3.5% on a comparable basis) on the same period in 2009. In 2010, Autogrill will stay focussed on profitability, efficient use of resources and cash flow generation in a scenario that is improving in terms of traffic but still characterized by high volatility. Two possible traffic scenarios were considered. “Best case” indicates more growth in American airports and a moderate recovery of traffic in UK airports and Italian motorways, while Spanish airport traffic stays at last year’s levels. “Worst case” indicates a more modest recovery in US airports, traffic on Italian motorways and in UK airports in line with 2009 and a slight contraction in Spain,” Company statement.
