Good day rivaldo, it has always seemed to be a lovely place. I have spoken to tourists on the beach while I go swimming before and it's always been a very pleasant atmosphere. As for the Speightstown economy, well the word on the street is that a big company is looking to invest a very large figure locally but it will require a change of government at the election. Different industry although still tourist-centric. Will generate a lot of revenue and boost wider economy. Family and friends can always visit :)

Hi cmackay, my family and I have stayed at the Almond Beach a couple of times and absolutely loved it - charming resort, no pretensions, staff who can't do enough for you, good food, beautiful quiet beaches....such a shame it'll become just another Sandals enclave. I feel sorry for the staff who will be without jobs, and as you say, it'll hit Speightstown hard. I envy your living there :o)) Mind you, I could do what I do just as well sitting on the beach out there. If it wasn't for family, friends, culture, sport etc etc....

Almond Beach is just down the road from me, it's going to hit the Speightstown economy hard for it to be closed for refurbishment for 3 years.

The Response of Various Real Estate Assets to Devaluation in Argentinahttp://www.reporteinmobiliario.com/nuke/article640-the-response-of-various-real-estate-assets-to-devaluation-in-argentina.htmlAfter the first three months of 2002, during which the real estate business market was practically paralyzed, the behavior of the different real estate sub-markets was different. The "industrial" market suffered the most important change of values after devaluation of the Argentine currency, with prices dropping 67% during the first year. Next was the "office" market depreciating 53% during the same period. The residential "apartment" market value dropped 29% during the first year after devaluation.

Don't see it as a problem for ehg, they are tapped into the tourist dollar, not the domestic economy. Interesting read nonetheless, thank you for sharing.

Sorry let me introduce myself rather than ask questions, I've recently bought a small holding here with the aim to build a larger holding long term. I am hoping to attend the AGM, will anyone else be there? I would be grateful to anyone willing to point me in the direction of further research for the company, direct or indirect. Thanks.

The problem as can be seen below by the BHTA comments last year is now ongoing for a long time and has progressively worsened with all short term patch up attempts failing and the real issue being Barbados not having the money to carry out the substantial sewage works after years of under investment. https://www.barbadostoday.bb/2017/12/13/bhta-wants-immediate-action-to-fix-sewage-mess/

With sterling now at US$1.4 it is now about 15% cheaper to have a holiday in Barbados for people in the UK than it was a year ago.

Sensitivity analysisAn increase of 100 basis points in interest rates would decrease profit or loss by $0.7 million on an annual basis. This analysis assumes that all other variables, in particular foreign currency rates, remain constant.The financial liabilities which have a contractual maturity greater than one year are the Group's loans and borrowings. Including estimated interest payments and excluding the effect of netting agreements, the payments due in relation to the Group's loans and borrowings are $8.6 million due within one year and $68.6 million due between one and five years (2016: $7.0 million due within one year and $65.1 million due between one and five years) (ie 2020)

LBO - these are fair points. I note that Elegant does highlight competition in its results and the need to reinvest in its estate. Sandals appears to have a great brand. More generally when I was looking back the person who originally sold Elegant to private equity he told a newspaper that he was worried about increased competition from Cuba and other Caribbean destinations. I can see why consumers prefer Sandals potentially. It offers a consistent product and should have a good level of service. On the other hand a lot of its hotels may feel the same. The new Sandals resort in Barbados looks amazing. It is called Royal Barbados: www.sandals.co.uk/destinations/barbados/ I haven't made an assessment but the new Sandals hotel in Barbados must increase the luxury room supply in the country by a reasonable percentage. To be fair, though, this is a growing sector with tourism and travel in long-term expansion. One thing that is interesting is that Elegant's hotels are quite small compared to the Sandals hotel in Barbados. This means a smaller swimming pool and other facilities such as gym. Some of pools in Elegant's portfolio look pretty small. I would probably prefer to stay at a Sandals resort but then other people might prefer smaller hotels.

Reminds me when some posted on here that Elegant Hotels would not be affected by Brexit as the Elegant hotels UK customer base had higher disposable income and their spending on Luxury holidays would not be effected. Yet it has been and Elegant themselves admit in the results that their regular repeat customers are not returning like they used to. But all the while UK arrivals to Barbados have not fallen and other operators are increasing Revpar, Occupancy and EBITDA again unlike what's going on with Elegant even as they acquire more rooms. Also we must remember that demand for Barbados is now higher then normal as other areas of the carribean have been decimated by hurricane IRMA but they will rebuild and recover their tourists resulting in only a short term and temporary spike in demand for Barbados this winter season. This is all points to a big internal problem in the whole group and the offering as Elegant is not really experiencing much uplift unlike others. From the Elegant results; "Waves' occupancy was the highest in the Group at 73%" Then we see Sandals just open the new Royal and report https://www.barbadostoday.bb/2017/12/22/royal-treatment/ “The bookings for the season look very, very good. We opened today with a good 80 rooms arriving . . . By tomorrow another 80 rooms [will be occupied]. [And] by the time we hit January 12, this resort will be running 90 [to] 92 per cent,” he said, adding that “for 2018, we already have on the books an average 97 per cent occupancy across the board And Sandals is a direct competitor that Analysts have flagged as a risk factor for Elegant since 2015 http://www.hardmanandco.com/docs/default-source/company-docs/elegant-hotels-documents/elegantmay15-2

Do you not know the LBO has a negative take on any fact (occupancy - high, all risk is to the downside; occupancy - low, the business is failing; occupancy in the middle - I don't know but I'm sure he'd come up with something).
