Sep 8 16
A number of investors are said to be interested in acquiring a stake in The Taj Mahal Hotel (Taj Mansingh Hotel), if it is put up for sale by New Delhi Municipal Council. According to news report, an auction could see bidding from firms like SAMHI Hotels Private Limited, Lemon Tree Hotels Ltd., and other foreign institutional investors as well as private equity funds. SAMHI’s Chief Executive Officer, Ashish Jakhanwala stated, “At a broad level, yes, we would be interested in bidding for the property.” However, he added that a number of issues needed to be clarified before that, like the tenure of the lease and whether it is fixed or variable. Chairman of Lemon Tree Hotels, Patu Keswani said, “We are always keen for good quality assets but we are not into the trophy asset business. So, if it's a 30-year lease, unlikely. If it's longer, we will be interested.” He added that said if it is an open auction and there is no right of first refusal, then like most others international and domestic hotel companies, the company too would like to bid. Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. (NYSE:HOT) Managing Director, India, Dilip Puri said that Starwood will not bid as it does not invest in real estate, if investors bid for it and got it, the company will like to manage the property. Previously, Accor S.A. (ENXTPA:AC), Oberoi Realty Limited (BSE:533273), ITC Limited (NSEI:ITC), and Sahara India Pariwar Ltd. had expressed interest in bidding for the property. PRS Oberoi, Chairman of EIH Ltd. (BSE:500840) which owns the Oberoi, had told ET in 2012 that he would be interested if the price was in range. The report added that Vikram Oberoi, EIH Managing Director, declined to comment.
