3) Agra: 8 acres
Located 2 km. from the Taj Mahal, in the heart of Agra, and yet free from its din and bustle, The Clarks Shiraz is just 7 km. from the Airport and 3 km. from the Railway Station.
This 5-star resort, spread over 8 landscaped acres, has 237 well-appointed and fully renovated rooms, with maximum Taj facing rooms in the city
4) Lucknow : approx 3 acres ( not confirmed )
Conveniently located right in the side of the palace of the Nawabs and on the bank of river Gomti, Hotel Clarks Avadh Lucknow is only four kilometers from the railway station, 15 kilometers from the airport and just 1 km from the Main Shopping Area – Hazratga.
Hotel Clarks Avadh Lucknow features 98 rooms and is located on Mahatma GandhiMarg in Lucknow.

@ CMP of about Rs.278, the company trades at a m/cap of about 150 cr & EV of about 128 cr.
Promoters will have to dilute their stake to 75% in the next 6-7 months or delist the company. Considering that they own a little less than 89% ,if they opt for the delisting option, even if the same were to happen @ 2X current market price, i.e say Rs.550, promoters won’t have to shell out more than 35 cr. 

If one thinks from the promoters point of view, it makes sense for a company sitting on about 20 cr of net cash equivalents & hotels located on prime land in 4 locations.
Should be interesting to watch the developments here over the next few months.
