After the close on August 3rd, integrated tourism group Fosun Tourism Group (HK:01992) issued a profit forecast for the first half of 2023, showing a positive outlook. Benefiting from the relaxation of global travel restrictions and effective implementation of company strategies, Fosun Tourism’s various business segments continue to experience strong recovery.

At a fixed exchange rate, the group’s tourism revenue is expected to increase by no less than 24% compared to the first half of 2022 and the first half of 2019. The net profit attributable to shareholders is projected to be no less than 430 million yuan, marking a turnaround from a net loss of 197 million yuan in the first half of 2022.

*The term “revenue” here refers to the total sales of Fosun Tourism’s various business segments, including Club Med and others, Atlantis Sanya, the Vacation Asset Management Center, and other leisure tourism services.
