 The brokerage firm also estimates an 18 per cent EBITDA CAGR over FY24-27. “We introduce our FY27 estimates and build in 14 per cent revenue CAGR and 18 per cent EBITDA CAGR over FY24-27E. Of this, we expect 8–10 per cent annual EBITDA growth from existing assets with balance growth driven by the commencement of new hotels, of which over 75 per cent of the room openings will be through asset-light management contracts," it said.

The company's demand outlook also looks promising. With occupancy and room rates seen in FY24, RevPAR growth is likely to stay healthy in FY25, too.
