- Standalone net revenue for the quarter grew at slower rate of 4.8% yoy to Rs 2.5 bn due to lower VO income and decline in resort income. One of the reasons for lower growth of 5.2% yoy in VO income is due to increased contribution from low realization product 'Bliss'.
- EBITDA margins at 19.8% was below our estimates (of 22.2%) on account of decline in resort income due to floods in Kerala and high rain fall in Coorg which contributes large portion of room inventory for the company.
