'Buy' rating for Dalata

Investment bank Jefferies has given Dalata Hotel Group's stock as a "buy" rating due to Dalata trading on the market at a 45% discount of the net value of its property.clayton

Jefferies stated that investors are not appreciating Dalata's strong balance sheet and UK growth prospects.
In a report on the European hotels markets  , Jefferies said, "We like Dalata's structured business model and think the company is well-positioned to grow in the UK and take advantage of the gap in the three- to four-star hotel market.
 "We believe Dalata is likely to gain market share from the independent hoteliers [weaker balance sheets] as trading becomes more challenging."
