Real Estate
El Gouna and Makadi Heights real estate sales benefited from the concentration of extended-stay from people during the lock-down. We witnessed an increase in demand on our real estate units since May 2020, and we were able to capitalize on that demand by continuing to boost our real estate offerings to cater to the different needs. Q4 2020 net real estate sales increased by 32.3% to EGP 1.8 billion (Q4 2019: EGP 1.4 billion) and net real estate sales for FY 2020 reached EGP 6.2 billion (FY 2019: EGP 6.9 billion).

El Gouna continued to prove its status as the premier destination in Egypt, recording a 10.6% increase in net real estate sales of EGP 2.4 billion in FY 2020 compared to EGP 2.2 billion in FY 2019. In Makadi Heights, real estate sales continued its positive momentum and recorded a 12.6% increase to EGP 450.4 million from EGP 400.1 million in FY 2019. For O West, new sales during Q4 2020 marked EGP 1.2 billion, a tremendous growth of 46.9% y-o-y. In FY 2020 net sales reached EGP 3.3 billion vs. EGP 4.3 billion in FY 2019. It is important to highlight that we were able to push our average selling prices across all destinations while still securing a solid sales balance.

We started speeding our construction activity during the 2H 2020 and we are continuing with this pace in El Gouna, Makadi Heights and O West, deploying 100% capacity among all our construction sites, complemented by all the necessary precautionary and safety measures. The enhanced construction momentum boosted our Real estate revenues for 2020 and grew our ending deferred revenue balance. The deferred revenue remains solid and fully funded, providing concrete visibility on future cash flows and earnings. We have also enhanced our collection activity across the board, reducing our delinquency rates to only 4% and significantly increasing our real estate receivables portfolio.

Hotels
Hotel business continues to be dramatically impacted by the global pandemic. While ODE acknowledges that the full recovery from the pandemic will take time, the current pick up in local travel and the global vaccine roll-out plans, reinforces the Group's view that when people feel safe, travelling demand will return quickly. We are continuing to implement several cost saving initiatives across our hotels and developing specialized packages and offerings to create local demand for all destinations. In Egypt, as per the governmental decree, hotels are still restricted to operate at 50% of their total capacity since June 2020.
