We have been growing at an amazing pace over the years, since our inception in the 1990s. In our initial days of operation, we began a highly successful journey with our listing on the Bombay Stock Exchange; and on National Stock Exchange years later. Initially, we were involved mainly in software development for small and medium enterprises. In the years that followed, we have acquired seven properties in Maharashtra alone, including hotels, resorts and a lifestyle club. They cater to people from all walks of life, such as, tourists, business travelers and individuals seeking a great weekend getaway.
Other than Maharashtra, we have made our presence felt in several states across India. In central India, we have two excellent wildlife resorts, the United-21 Jungle Resort in Pench National Park and United-21 Tiger's Habitat in Kanha National Park. In northern parts of the country, we have our resorts in Corbett National Park, Chail, Bhimtal, New Tehri and Nanda Devi Mountains. In South India, we operate hotels under our brand name United-21 in Mysore and Hyderabad; while we also own resorts in Kodaikanal, Ooty, Kollam and Alleppey. In western India, other than Maharashtra, we own hotels and resorts in Gir Forest National Park, Goa, Todgarh and Udaipur. In eastern part of the country, we have our resorts in Sunderbans and Kaziranga National Park.
In the past few years, we have also acquired properties in countries outside India. We currently own five properties, including resorts and inns in various parts of the United States of America, such as North Carolina, Ohio, New York and Florida. We own a motel in New Zealand, and have recently acquired properties in Thailand and Singapore. All these properties have been instrumental in enhancing our reputation globally, and we plans to acquire more properties in the days to come.
