Key triggers for future price performance
The ongoing crisis would restrict overall room supply in the industry in next three to four years, auguring well for branded players like Indian Hotels.
Expect business to recover to 97% of pre-Covid levels with Ebitda surpassing pre-Covid levels by FY23E; margins are seen at over 24% in FY23E, which has the potential to further expand to 30%+.
Improved cash flows, equity infusion and divestment of non-core assets are expected to help the company become debt free.
