Transat AT beats Q4 profit expectations, moving ahead with hotel plans

MONTREAL — Transat A.T. Inc. says it earned $7.8 million in its latest quarter, down from a year ago when its results were boosted by the sale of its interest in Ocean Hotels.

The Montreal-based travel company says its fourth-quarter profit amounted to 21 cents per share for the quarter ended Oct. 31, compared with a profit of $148.1 million or $$3.97 per share a year ago.

On an adjusted basis, Transat says it earned 45 cents per share in its most recent quarter, compared with an adjusted profit of $1.24 per share in the same quarter last year.

Analysts on average had expected a profit of 41 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.

Revenue totalled $668.3 million, down from $698.6 million.

Transat says the results came as the company completed the acquisition of its first parcel of land in Puerto Morelos, Mexico, as part the development of its hotel division.
