Speaking on the results, Mr. Sanjay Sethi, MD & CEO, Chalet Hotels Limited, said, “The 3rd quarter saw the hospitality segment demonstrating strong recovery with segment revenue growing QoQ by 55% and segment EBIDTA was up 167%. Sweating of real estate assets in our balance sheet and repurposing underperforming assets are expected to be P&L accretive.

The impact from the 3rd wave has been lower and the pick-up is likely to be faster than the earlier waves giving visibility of full recovery in the near future. Throughout these challenging times, Chalet has diligently focused on its core business strategy of prudent capital & asset management and ESG commitments, paving the way for long term returns.”
