Benefits and risks of the stock: Anand Rathi
Mentioning the stock's potential, Anand Rathi said, "At its capital market day, IHCL announced Ahvaan 2025, under which it aims to build a cohort of 300 hotels (in FY22, it had 20,581 rooms at 175 operational hotels), clock 33% EBITDA margins with a 35% share of EBITDA from new businesses and management fees by FY26. By FY22, the hotel company owned or managed ~20,581 rooms. Management contracts have increased from ~25% of rooms in FY18 to 36% in FY22, and the company intends to take this figure to 50% in the next few years. On the management-contract side, the company has 5,550 rooms in the pipeline, which should be operational in the next 3-5 years. Management expects Rs. 4bn revenue from management fees by FY26, with a 70% flow through to EBITDA. We maintain our positive stance on the hotelier and expect it to outclass others, driven by its dominance in the Indian hotels sector, superlative brand equity and well-diversified portfolio across business segments and price-points."
However, about the key risk, the brokerage firm has mentioned a slowdown in the economy which could curtail the demands.
