If Sri Lankan firms trying to consider to reach MNC status, Aitken Spence is an example.
AHUN has reached Maldives, India and Oman.. Operations out of Sri Lankan boundaries are successful and owns 6 islands of Maldives. Indian operations are to be re-considered where Oman operations are carried out successfully

Out of the Profits 70% is taken from Maldives operations..

We don't have many companies that reach a profit above Rs 2 Billion mark and AHUN.N is one such. In addition to that out of this 2 Billion 70% is taken from out of SL borders is another important factor..

The Ocean Villas at Huduranfushi, ( Maldives) which was destroyed by a fire during last year has been reconstructed this year..Browns Beach Hotels which is an associate of AHUN will be restarted this year with 143 rooms and under the name of Heritance Negombo

EPS has potential to grow further as " Over-capacity" is a term found in 2015 annual report..

CIND used this term last annual report but 2015 report recorded the best ever performance.. A company that under-perform can record forever highest once the underlying factors are supportive to them.. A company that has reached the maximum capacity fails to grab such opportunities..

When studying top twenty list many short term players look at whether there appear names of known traders where as I look at long term players who will remain in the list for a longer period..

M.J. Fernando is one such name. He being an entrepreneur in tea industry appear in many annual reports of Tea and Tourism...

17th Largest shareholder of this is Mr. M.J. Fernando.
Ceylon Tea Services (Dilmah), TPL, Kahwatta, Fortress Resorts are among other companies where he and his associates appear..

Another gem of a post from YK. Knowledgeable people who share their knowledge are the true heroes of the human race. Thanks.

About the split in 2010, are not the charts adjusted to show the real picture ? Then why such a plunge in NAV ?

Future Prospects

Sri Lankan tourism is expected to enjoy 2 million tourist arrivals per annum.

Targeting that more developments are undertaken by AHUN as well.. With the Collaboration of RIU Resorts of Spain , Aitkenspence develop RIU Heritance Ahungalla.

Charter planes will be reactivated with the opening of this 501 roomed hotel in 2016.

Having Mattala Airport in Southern province is an advantage of this project.

The Chairman's message is in full praise of infrastructure developments taken place in the country after war.

Following is an extract and link of relevant info.

"
Chairman of Aitken Spence, said that the timing of the hotel's opening would be right since the Southern Highway to Hambantota is expected to reach completion by that time. “We have the Mattala Airport facility already in place, giving us an ideal mix for our business model. Aitken Spence has always encouraged infrastructure development in the country and our investment is proof of our confidence and support of the.
 
Government's development plans. The strategy for all our beach resorts in the South including the new RIU Resorts is in line with the Government’s vision for the further development of the country, especially in the tourism segment.”

2016 will be a best performing year for AHUN. as two additional islands from Maldives, fully completed and reopening of burnt down unit, opening of RIU Hertiance Ahungalla and charter plane operations will increase the sales revenue..

another quote
"
he Mattala Airport will play a large role in keeping the hotel filled all year round, since TUI will be operating Boeing 787 Dreamliner charters, with the capacity of carrying 300 passengers on a weekly basis to and from the airport transporting guests exclusively to the resort.
 
The business model spearheaded by the Group, apart from having a significant impact on the tourism sector,would also have a snowball effect in developing the industry, especially in the deep south of the country
"

All these positive news will add value to AHUN.

However when compare with the number of resorts AHUN maintain to get Rs 2 Billion profit, AHPL is more efficiently managed.

The Chairman referring to a statement made by him in the Group’s 2005 Annual Report stated, “…if you remember in the year following the tsunami when we saw the total destruction of many beach resorts, we made plans to expand  both nationally and internationally and our board decided to think globally with our multinational partners and it was in that same financial year that after a long standing partnership with TUI,

Putting White Elephant projects to generate revenue is a welcome news. Very Happy

(Dream-liner is a very sensitive aircraft and I hope they will have adequate repair facilities stationed there to meet any eventuality).

Thanks for the analysis.
AHUN is in relatively good cash position with lesser debt, We saw recently they engaged in Acquisition spree and developing/refurbishing product portfolio. More importantly their focus is high end market. We'll be able to see, how they deliver in coming years.
