When Advani Hotels & Resorts (India) Limited (NSE:ADVANIHOTR) released its most recent earnings update (31 March 2019), I wanted to understand how these figures stacked up against its past performance. The two benchmarks I used were Advani Hotels & Resorts (India)'s average earnings over the past couple of years, and its industry performance. These are useful yardsticks to help me gauge whether or not ADVANIHOTR actually performed well. Below is a quick commentary on how I see ADVANIHOTR has performed.
Were ADVANIHOTR's earnings stronger than its past performances and the industry?
ADVANIHOTR's trailing twelve-month earnings (from 31 March 2019) of ₹114m has jumped 32% compared to the previous year.
Furthermore, this one-year growth rate has exceeded its 5-year annual growth average of 20%, indicating the rate at which ADVANIHOTR is growing has accelerated. What's the driver of this growth? Let's see whether it is merely attributable to industry tailwinds, or if Advani Hotels & Resorts (India) has seen some company-specific growth.
In terms of returns from investment, Advani Hotels & Resorts (India) has invested its equity funds well leading to a 21% return on equity (ROE), above the sensible minimum of 20%. Furthermore, its return on assets (ROA) of 15% exceeds the IN Hospitality industry of 6.5%, indicating Advani Hotels & Resorts (India) has used its assets more efficiently. However, its return on capital (ROC), which also accounts for Advani Hotels & Resorts (India)’s debt level, has declined over the past 3 years from 21% to 20%.
What does this mean?
Advani Hotels & Resorts (India)'s track record can be a valuable insight into its earnings performance, but it certainly doesn't tell the whole story. While Advani Hotels & Resorts (India) has a good historical track record with positive growth and profitability, there's no certainty that this will extrapolate into the future.
