Groupwide Hotel REVPAR improved by 18% in first nine months versus same period in prior year

Its owned hotels namely in Thailand have re-opened with quarantine exemption and are positioned well for international business resumption.

Property Sales continues to achieve profitability and stays on track

In 3Q21, Property Sales segment contributed positively to Group's top line and profitability arising from the development sale in Australia and revenues recorded from completed residences and extended stay properties in Thailand.

Cash liquidity improvement and financial flexibility

The rebound of business coupled with re-profiling of remaining loans and asset monetization have contributed positively to the Group's cashflow. The Group's cash reserve is adequate to cover its financing needs beyond the next 12 months.

Global Brand Awards Recognitions

With its recent series of awards, Banyan Tree Group has been voted among Top 25 Hotel Brands in the World (#19) by Travel+Leisure. Additionally, it has garnered 8 resort and city hotel-level awards in Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards and T+L World's Best Awards - a testament to its team's perseverance and guests' recognition and trust amidst Covid-19.

An Expanded Multi-brand Ecosystem of Purposeful Travel

As a future-orientated strategy and in response to purposeful travel post-Covid, Banyan Tree Group will be expanding its ecosystem of brands worldwide through its structured "Stay for Good" framework which aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Built upon the founding ethos of "Embracing Environment, Empowering People", it is centered on three core pillars of sustainability - Environment, Society and Governance (ESG). As a pioneer of purposeful travel and stewardship, this expanded global portfolio of 10 unique brands will increase the Group's reach and impact by implementing regenerative and wellbeing-focused practices as well as guest experiences in the countries where it operates.

Since 2020, the Group's multi-brand ecosystem has enabled it to encompass the lifestyle spectrum in Asia, which is its stronghold. Foreseeing conversion opportunities in resort destinations, micro-hotels in developed cities, and emerging second-tier tourism destinations, it has unveiled three new brands - Folio, Garrya and Homm to capture these macro trends. Two new brand extensions Banyan Tree Escape and Banyan Tree Veya under Banyan Tree will further position the Group as a global leader in wellbeing and sustainability.
