Indian Hotels Co Ltd Chairman Speech

Dear Stakeholders,

For the travel and tourism sector, the end of the decade saw greater emphasis on the industry as a significant contributor to the overall global economy and employment. A strong economy, rising global consumer purchasing power and digital disruption was paving the way for a bright future, and FY 2019/2020 was, in fact, a tipping point, presenting tremendous potential for the sector.

However, this buoyant sentiment was upended by a sudden outbreak of a pandemic that has had no parallels in recent history in terms of scale and impact. The world was placed under suspended animation, and the industry was brought to a halt, with estimated losses at trillions and millions of jobs at risk. With the very foundation of the world altered, the need of the hour is to see our industry, and IHCL, through the crisis with greater urgency, revised strategy and more agility (stragility).

It also calls for a greater need for communities to unite and support one another in this time of need. Guided by our values as a Tata company, our priority besides ensuring the safety and security of our guests and employees, was to help the community in any manner we could. We are humbled to have been given the opportunity to be of service to the nation by providing over 2 Million meals to healthcare workers and migrant labourers throughout the lockdown. Some of our hotels were also offered to doctors and healthcare workers, while some were converted into quarantine facilities.

A SILVER LINING - EVERY CRISIS ALSO PRESENTS AN OPPORTUNITY

The travel and tourism industry accounts for 10% of the global GDP and generates 1 out of 10 jobs. In India, it is a significant contributor to GDP and also contributes 8.1% to the overall workforce. Thus, given its significance, the industry will have a crucial role to play in any economic revival and with tourism likely to look inwards in the new normal, India is well placed with its rich heritage and cultural diversity.

With a 116-year legacy honed by Tata values, our ability to consistently deliver industry-leading growth while maintaining profitability and balance sheet strength, combined with our business sense and thrift, makes us resilient to disruptive challenges.

Change breeds innovation and in light of the current global scenario, at IHCL, we have detailed a comprehensive five- point strategy - R.E.S.E.T 2020. This will not only cater to the rapidly changing market conditions, shifting government policies and dynamic customer needs, but will also focus on re-imagining business models, implementing various operational excellence interventions required for safety and hygiene, revenue enhancement and creating alternative sources of revenue through our well established hospitality eco-system, cost optimisation and other measures through utmost financial prudence.

SUSTAINABILITY LED BY PROFITABILITY

The relentless pursuit of our five-year strategy - Aspiration 2022 - has enabled us to deliver nine quarters of profitable growth in a row. In FY 2019-20, we recorded the highest full-year PAT at Rs 354 Crore, up 24% Y-O-Y; the highest full- year EBITDA at Rs 1,100 Crore, up 20%; and a 406-basis-point expansion in EBITDA margin. Our balance sheet was further strengthened by lowering net debt-to-EBITDA to 1.74.

We have made significant inroads in meeting our defined objectives within two years of outlining our aspirations. In order to drive asset-light growth, we have restructured our portfolio, with management contracts now accounting for 42%. We have signed over 50 new hotels in the past two years, reaching a milestone of 200 hotels with 25,000+ rooms across 100+ locations (excluding ama Stays and Trails) - 29 hotels were signed in the last fiscal alone.

STRONG BRAND VALUE

The overall positive outcome was further accelerated by Taj being rated as India's Strongest Brand in Brand Finance's Brand Value Report - 'India 100 2020' report recently.

With a brand strength index (BSI) score of 90.5 out of 100 and AAA+ brand strength rating, it is a matter of pride, and has further reinforced the brand's resonance and trust among all our stakeholders.

RE-IMAGINING AND CONSOLIDATING OUR HOSPITALITY ECOSYSTEM

Even as we adapt to the new normal, we will continue to re-imagine our multi-product, multi-segment brandscape to transform from a hotels business to a hospitality ecosystem. Our new brand - SeleQtions - along with the expansion of ama Stays & Trails across offbeat locations, offers distinct value propositions across demographics. The repositioned Ginger recorded the highest number of rooms signed under any brand in India in FY 2019-20, and reached a milestone with the opening of the 50th Ginger hotel in Surat.

Our ancillary service brands perfectly complement our hospitality brands. The Chambers - Taj's exclusive business club - was relaunched with enhanced features and over 100 new members. In order to capture diverse customer segments, we launched our salon brand, niu&nau; and re-designed our F&B offerings with the recent launch of Qmin, a repertoire of culinary experiences. An exclusive partnership with AB InBev, for an industry first on-site chain of microbreweries, will see the first 7 Rivers brewpub open at Taj MG Road in Bengaluru, shortly.

We also tied up with globally acclaimed Italian restaurant chain, Paper Moon - its first restaurant in India is due to launch in Goa.

We opened 12 hotels including Taj Fateh Prakash Palace in Udaipur; Taj Jumeirah Lakes Towers in Dubai; Taj Tirupati - strengthening our presence in spiritual tourism; Taj Hotel & Convention Centre Goa - the largest convention venue in the state with Cidade De Goa - IHCL SeleQtions; Devi Ratn - IHCL SeleQtions in Jaipur and Ginger Surat. We also augmented our development portfolio with multiple signings in the North East, Haridwar, Thiruvananthapuram and Bhubaneshwar, while readying the launch of a Vivanta prototype in Bengaluru.

TAJNESS - A COMMITMENT RESTRENGTHENED

As we slowly but steadily embark on the path to recovery, our hotels stand prepared to welcome guests back with an enhanced focus on hygiene and safety through exacting protocols delivered with a renewed and restrengthened commitment to Tajness.

LOOKING AHEAD

Although the new decade has begun on a challenging note, history is testament to the resilience our company has demonstrated in the face of adversity. We are confident that we will emerge stronger and more unified than ever. We will also have the opportunity to create a more positive impact and reshape the world together, making it a better place for all who inhabit it.

Sustainability will remain at the core of all that we do. We will continue to give back to society by enabling livelihoods through skilling, leverage our business value chain to support traditional art and heritage, drive societal welfare through the Taj Public Welfare Trust, and carry out responsible sourcing of local products and materials.

Guided by our values of Trust, Awareness and Joy, we remain committed to deepening our collaborations, and driving business performance in a responsible manner. This will, of course, be impossible without the continued support of our patrons, investors, employees and other stakeholders.

I thank you all for being the strongest pillars of our success.

Best Regards,

Puneet Chhatwal

Managing Director and CEO
