Sagar Tourist Resorts Ltd Management Discussions.
This Report discusses and analyses the business performance for the year ended 31st March, 2016.
1) Industry Structure and Development
The Company is in the business of hospitality. The fortunes of your Company are directly linked with the number of guests, conference, business meetings seminars etc held in the hotel premises.
2) Opportunities and Threats
Our hotel is offering four star hotel facilities. Restructuring of tariff, attractive seasonal plans and scenic location of the hotel have given the edge over the hotels in Kullu-Manali area. Existing marketing set up [having six [6) GSA offices and Eight  PSA offices) is being utilized to market hotels at other tourist destinations.
We perceive threats more from the local hotels as their tariffs are uneconomical and unviable. Our facilities, ideal location and good services may have some impact over such unhealthy competition.
3) Segment - wise or product - wise performance
The Company has its resort located at Manali Dist. Kullu in the state of Himachal Pradesh. The location is very scenic as the Hotel Premises is atthe foothills of the Rohtang Pass.
The road ahead is challenging. Moreover, volume continues to be a critical determinant for real good turnaround and growth. The initiatives of the Company to provide attractive rates, good food and service are expected to provide the necessary drive to meet the challenges and to spot the growth opportunities.
5) Risks and Concerns
The hospitality business continues to be highly competitive particularly in Kullu-Manali area as the availability of the rooms is much more than its demand even in a peak season. Inadequate infrastructure contributes greatly for poor arrivals of the guests/tourists in this area. There is no rail and limited and expensive air link to reach Manali.
6) Internal Control Systems and their adequacy
The Company has adequate internal control systems in place. The Management Team takes the corrective actions immediately to address any inconsistent development.
