Company performance

IHIN's total operating cost dropped 45% to Rs. 19.2b and fixed cost per month decreased 28% to Rs. 1.2b in FY21 - backed by manpower optimization and a reduction in corporate overheads. Corporate overheads dipped 39% YoY to Rs. 2.1b in FY21 - redeployments and restructuring, prudent resource allocation, and synergies, aided this. Additionally, The Chambers - Taj's exclusive business club - was relaunched with enhanced features. The company generated Rs. 2.2b of revenue in FY20 from management contracts, which is expected to rise to Rs. 3.5b in the future. Notably, the EBITDA generated from management contract income stands at 70-80% without deploying capital/with minimum capital and is, thus, highly RoCE accretive.

Maintaining a buy rating, Motilal Oswal said, "There has been a major transition in IHIN's business strategy from an asset-heavy model (adding owned rooms that entail higher CAPEX and debt) to an asset-light operating strategy (adding rooms under management contracts by leveraging its brand). We believe this shift will foster business expansion for IHIN. Though the ongoing third Covid-wave poses a threat to near-term earnings of the hospitality sector, higher vaccination and lower hospitalization rates will lead to a much stronger rebound than the second wave. Thus, we view this weakness as a buying opportunity."
