The company posted a revenue of Rs.2.33 billion, a 9 percent increase from the last year.  The profit before tax was a record Rs. 300 million, its highest ever, almost 9 times of the last year’s result of Rs. 34 million. 
Apart from the healthy Gross Profit margins of around 52 percent, the hotel benefitted from the lower finance costs, with finance cost reducing from Rs.286 Mn in FY 2013/14 to Rs. 146 million during the current year.
