The proposed project will achieve its estimated breakeven point at capacity of 47% (3,187 room-days) with gross revenue of PKR 21.97 million in a year.

The proposed project may also be established using leveraged financing. At 50% debt financing at a cost of KIBOR+3%, the proposed project provides Net Present Value (NPV) of PKR 31.14 million, Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of 41% and Payback Period of 3.32 years. Further, this project is expected to generate Net Profit (NP) Ratio ranging from 5% to 20% estimated breakeven point at capacity of 51% (3,490 room days) with annual revenue of PKR 24.06 million.

The proposed project will provide employment opportunities to 17 persons including the owner.
