Alphabeta A recent study done by Deloitte on Australia Hotels

27 February 2014:

Hotel occupancy rates in Australia’s south east have hit record highs on the back of shifting
patterns of demand and a modest, albeit strengthened, near term supply pipeline.

Releasing Deloitte’s latest Tourism and Hotel Market Outlook, Deloitte Access Economics’ Lachlan Smirl said: “As the Australian economy transitions from a growth phase underpinned by resource sector construction to a more diversified one, travel patterns are gradually shifting away from the big mining states. At the same time, improved conditions for leisure travel – both inbound and domestic – are underwriting robust demand growth across several regions.

“These trends have been mirrored across our hotel markets, with Brisbane and Perth receding from their resource boom highs, and Sydney and Melbourne recording their highest occupancy rates in more than two decades.

Sydney and Melbourne, in particular, are recording their highest room occupancy rates in more than two decades, with city hotels nearing capacity several nights a week and demand predicted to increase, says Deloitte Access Economics’ latest Tourism and Hotel Market Outlook report.

Overall, Australian hotel demand is set to more than double available supply over the next three years, a situation that will only push room prices higher.

Alphabeta YTL management has done their homework before investing in Australia.

In addition, it was reported that the Australian dollar has hit another four-month high as the prospect of a stable interest rate outlook continues to drive the currency higher.

If the Aussie dollar can maintain its strength, there will be a write back on the forex translation loss.

Alphabeta Latest update on Aussie Dollar strength..

Posted on 1st April 2014, by Moneycorp Dealer Team, Moneycorp

The Australian, Canadian and New Zealand dollars all had a good week, even if they could not match the pace of the South African rand. The Australian dollar strengthened by one and a half US cents and by one cent against sterling.

For once, the Aussie dollar was helped by Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Glenn Stevens, who gave a positive speech about Australia's economic prospects without once mentioning the "overvalued" dollar. It also received some assistance from Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, who offered an upbeat assessment of the Chinese economy. He said he was confident that growth would be in "a reasonable range" despite facing "difficulties and risks".

Alphabeta Mulpha Hotel Investment Group P/L is the wholly owned subsi of Mulpha Australia Ltd which in turn 100% owned by Mulpha International Berhad. Not able to get the financial report of the Mulpha Hotel Investment Group P/L but from the segment report from Mulpha International, from FYE 2011 and 2012, beside the normal depreciation and amortization charges.

There were RM 63.9 mil and 58.9 mil impairment of property and equipment (PPE) charges respectively. Impairment charges were taken mainly due to lower market value of the PPE compared to book value.

If you compute the EBITDA (approximately to cash generated), Mulpha Hospitality segment EBITDA is RM 168.4 mil at the back of RM 431.1 mil of revenue. Whereas YTLREIT's FYE 2013 EBITDA is RM 50.1 mil at the back of RM 179.2 mil of revenue.

Prior to the impairment charges in FYEs 2011 and 2012, Mulpha hospitality segment were profitable and contributed around RM 20 mil each in FYE 2009 and 2010.

I anticipate YTLREIT Australia Hotels financial result should improve over the next few years.
