Operator Activities business is an important part in Pandox’s strategy of being active throughout the value chain and reflects the Company’s active ownership model. Pandox’s expertise and the capacity to operate hotels itself give the Company strategic flexibility. Operating properties' share of the market value of Pandox's total property portfolio amounts to approximately 16 percent.
The ability to take over the operation of a hotel reduces the operational risk when leases expire or if the tenant cannot fulfil its obligations. It is also useful in situations where hotels need to be completely renovated and it is not currently financially attractive to lease to third parties.
Pandox’s deep knowledge of hotel operation also makes it possible to efficiently monitor tenant performance throughout the portfolio. Operational know-how also creates opportunities to carry out acquisitions of mixed portfolios that include both hotel properties and hotel operations.
