DLF says Aman Resorts sale likely by Dec [DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India)]
(DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) DLF Ltd, India's biggest realtor, expects to complete the sale of Aman Resorts luxury hotel chain by the end of December as it is working to sell non-core assets to reduce its Rs23,200 crore debt. The Aman Resorts assets for sale include 22 hotels in 12 countries, excluding a hotel in New Delhi. The hotel deal, Reuters said, was stalled earlier in January 2012 due to lower-than-expected bids from shortlisted companies. The realtor, in the market for more than a year now, was expecting to sell Aman Resorts for at least $400 million. DLF has also received shareholder approval to sell its wind energy business and expects to complete that deal this fiscal, the company said in an analyst presentation.
