Asian Hotel Properties Plc, consist of two main hotels in Colombo and a property development company. Cinnamon Grand, Cinnamon Lake Side and Crescat Boulvard are the brand names of them. John Keels Holdings own 78.56% and Dr Sena Yaddehige and Merrill J Fernando & Sons are note worthy shareholders of the top twenty list..

I would name this Hotel as a Cash Cow.
Its growth potential is less as it already enjoy highest room capacity among Colombo City hotels..

Cinnamon Grand Colombo records an average occupancy of 75% which is well above the five-star city hotels average occupancy rate..

Thus the growth potential is less for this hotel and thus enjoy a mature stage where it happily give away a considerable dividend out of its earnings..

AHUN and AHPL enjoy above 2 Billion profit from tourism sector. AHUN has to manage many destinations to arrive at Rs 2 Billion profit where as AHPL manage only three closely located destinations in Colombo ..

Dividend payout is rather consistent and Rs 4 as dividend for a share trading at Rs 65 (approximate) ensures 6% dividend yield.. Thus AHPL is good for a dividend hunter as well..

All five star hotels find that increased room inventory of three star and four star as a threat.. Even AHPL, AHUN discuss about this matter in their annual reports..

Thanks for the great effort, + rep
My concern about this share is, will they able to maintain the same dominance, occupancy rate and the price and brand premium they enjoy now, once the new set of shining hotels like Shangrila, Hyatt, Movenpick, Water front etc flood the Colombo city in coming years.

Hal

Why do tourists visit Dubai, Sinagpore etc.. Because the infrastructures is supportive..The more hotels you have the more business you get..

But if you have only hotels that will not work out.. We visit Genting Highlands of Malaysia not just because the First World ( probably the hotel with the highest rooms in the world) but because you have entertainment, shopping all around in cold upcountry in a tropical land..

Its up to the government to decide to go ahead with Port City Project, Nelum Kuluna and Casino for JKH project or to abandon them..

We have to undertake risk as investors..

1. Isn't it the real meaning of calculating PE
2. Mine is a small PF, imagine the generation long holdings of MJF and Dr S... Generation to generation will get cash inflows at zero cost.. Follow the family traditions of real entrepreneurs of the nation..

AHPL.N0000 has uploaded its annual report 2015/2016. As I have mentioned earlier the revenue of the company has reached a plateau and it has resulted the company to become a cash cow.

Companies that cannot grow further in revenue become cash cows and dividend hunters should collect these cash cows .

"A company that pays higher dividends than earnings may result in declining Net Assets Per Share.."


Well your statement is partly true only right?

Not sure why a company would pays higher dividends than earnings consistently.
No company can afford to do that in any case.
AHPL has not done it either.

There are companies which pay higher dividend % out of the earning made

AHPL is one such. But it does not decline net assets.
It will not make it grow.

Juts adding some feedback as I think you statement needs to be revisited right?

Agree with you SLS

No company can continuously pay dividends than what they earn ...if so you must be doing that with the reserves already generated...

AHPL's growth is not shown in revenue.. Companies where relative market share is high and relative growth is low, often become paymasters of dividends....

Yet can it maintain the same Dividend next year unless Earnings  increased...? this is what I wanted to raise..

Thanks YK. Your outlook on this as a dividend cow of the future really interest me. Next two years will be the gap time before the big projects start opening their doors and changing the game for City hotels. The minimum rate cancellation will be the start of a new dynamic. AHPL should do well in the gap time.
