The joint venture is expected to make an investment of around Rs 2,400 crore till 2012. The plan is to build four-star hotels and resorts having 100-200 rooms.

NEWS| Pride Hotels to expand hospitality chain

Mumbai-based Pride Hotel Group is all set to expand into other
locations for which it has earmarked Rs 350 crore.

S.P. Jain, Chairman and Managing Director, Pride Hotels Ltd, said the
group has presence in Pune, Nagpur, Ahmedabad and Chennai. It has also
picked up land in Bangalore for its new venture.



He said the construction of the 105-room hotel is on and would be
opened by June 2008. With this, it would be having a room capacity of
438 across all its locations.

Jain said the group would be ramping up its capacity in its existing
locations. Pune would be adding up another 43 rooms, Nagpur 73 and
Ahmedabad 60. However, Chennai would not be ramped up, as it was a
recent acquisition.

The group has also acquired a seven acre land in South Goa for a
100-room resort. It is also looking at locations in Mumbai and
Hyderabad. Kotak India Real Estate Fund had recently made an equity
investment of Rs 45 crores in Pride Hotel Group. Kotak holds 11 per
cent stake in the group and the rest is with the family.

Pride Group is also looking at coming out with an initial public
offering. When the IPO hits the market, the family would be holding 70
per cent stake while the remaining would be with the public.

Kotak’s stake would be reduced to seven per cent which would
be part of the 30 per cent.

Commenting on the financials, Jain said the group had recorded a
turnover of Rs 28.72 crore in 2006 and Rs 51 crore in 2007. For the
last six months, it has recorded a turnover of Rs 33 crore as against
Rs 20 crore in the corresponding period last year, a growth of 65 per
cent.
