Overview of strategy

The Group’s growth strategy focuses on the continued development and rollout of owned hotels that the Board believes will offer sustained earnings per share-enhancing returns. Alongside growth of the owned hotel portfolio, our franchise network will continue to be expanded, which increases our network without direct capital investment from the Group.

The operational foundations necessary to achieve the Group’s exciting ambitions are now firmly in place. Moreover, the Board is confident that these plans will be delivered in a manner that is consistent with the values that distinguish the easyHotel brand from other providers in the sector – we make things simple; we are always the best value for money; we do what we say; and we care for you.
