Transcorp Hotels Plc Retains Positive A- (NG) GCR Rating - Brand Spur

According to GCR, the rating reflects Transcorp Hotels ability to maintain its market position as a leading brand in Nigeria’s hospitality industry, supported by the major renovation and facilities upgrade at Transcorp Hilton Abuja (‘THA’) and the subsequent improvement in pricing and occupancy rate. The available support to Transcorp Hotels as a member of Transnational Corporation of Nigeria Plc (“Transcorp”), and the partnership with Hilton Worldwide Limited (“Hilton”) is considered a rating positive.

Per management, the Company is currently exploring other opportunities and add-on services that could be offered to boost overall earnings going forward. The average occupancy rate in 1Q FY19 stood at about 61%, albeit still well ahead of the industry average of 53%. Revenue from room lodging grew by a moderate 5% YoY in 1Q FY19, while food and other services rose 18% and 23% respectively. ”
