Write downs, lackluster domestic economy impact Q4 standalone performance 

Indian Hotels standalone business was affected by the ongoing lackluster economy and write downs in its wholly owned overseas subsidiaries in US and HK. Topline growth remained tepid at 3.9% yoy and continues to face margin pressure as other expenses and inflation in input costs weighed on EBIDTA (down 8.6% yoy). Adjusted PAT (excluding exceptional items) dropped ~22% yoy in the domestic business. Company has guided for FY15 capex of Rs3bn. At the consolidated level (derived from FY14 and 9m figures) too, revenue growth remained moderate at 7.6% yoy and margins declined ~300bps yoy. Consolidated debt stood at Rs42.5bn and the upcoming rights issue proceeds would be used partially for debt repayment (Rs6bn) and rest for capex.

Believe worst is behind as domestic economy gains traction; upgrade to BUY

Indian Hotels domestic business has been impacted by a tepid economy and incoming supply which has put pressure on room rates; however, we believe domestic business is poised for turnaround as above factors correct in the next 12 months. Fund raising through rights issue would also help lower leverage and fund the capex program alleviating pressure on internal cash flows. We raise our FY15/16 EPS estimates and upgrade to BUY with revised 9-12mth target of Rs105.
