OUR VIEW

Lemon Tree Hotels is one of the leading hotel chains in India not just in terms of number of rooms managed, but also in terms of their brand, service quality and customer satisfaction. The company has strategically positioned themselves in the midscale segment which has seen the most growth in recent years. The Indian Hotel/Hospitality industry is highly under-penetrated and is poised for high growth in coming years due to, (a) increase in business and leisure travel, and (b) change in preference of tourists from staying at friend's/family's place to a hotel.

Financially, the company had an average EBITDA Margin of 25% over the last 5 years. The EBITDA Margin in fiscal 2017 was 30.2%. The company has only recently reported profits during Dec'17 which was a PAT of Rs. 2.85 Cr, a PAT Margin of 0.8%. However, the company has managed to generate cash consistently and managed to expand its assets and hotels without over-leveraging themselves.

The valuation based on EV/EBITDA comes to 39 times the 2017 numbers, which is above the average EV/EBITDA of 25x of similar hotel chains/ brands, thus making the offer fully priced when considering the superior brand and reach of Lemon Tree.

Considering the current market trend, we believe investors should subscribe to this issue with a long term perspective, as this is a fantastic brand with an aggressive growth strategy supported by better prospects for the Indian hospitality industry going forward.
