“We expect 10% CAGR in room addition through FY24-28E, driven by organic expansion and inorganic growth opportunities. ARR may grow in high single-digit CAGR over the same period, driven by rate increase as well as better geographical mix. Being jointly promoted by the Saraf group and Hyatt Hotels Corporation, Juniper Hotel has strong promoter pedigree," said Elara Capital in its report.
