According to the latest reports, Oyo Rooms based in Gurgaon, Haryana, witnessed its operating revenue increase by 18 per cent in the financial year 2022 when compared to the financial year 2021.
During the financial year 2022, Oyo Rooms posted operating revenue of 4905 crore rupees. Net loss of the multinational company also decreased by 45 per cent to 1851 crores.
Just before the pandemic hit, Oyo Rooms had operating revenue of 13413 annually in the financial year 2020. Net loss in that financial year stood at 10419 crores.
The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic and nationwide lockdown which was imposed by central and state governments heavily impacted the revenue streams of Oyo Rooms.
During the 2021 fiscal total revenue of Oyo Rooms was posted at 39616 million rupees. This was a steep decline in total revenue from 131681 million rupees in 2020.
A prospectus filed by Oyo Rooms with the Securities and Exchange Board of India suggests that the hotel chain managed to get back on its feet financially during the June quarter of the current financial year.
The hotel chain posted an operational revenue of 1505 crore rupees during the first quarter of the financial year. During the same period, net loss was recorded at 548 crores.
Compared to the financial year 2021, the gross booking value of Oyo Rooms, per storefront, increased to 2.2 lakh rupees. This surge was posted in the hotel businesses of the hospitality chain. In the 2021 fiscal GBV per storefront was posted at 2 lakh rupees.
June quarter of FY 2023 had a GBV per storefront of 3.25 lakh rupees per month.
This sudden increase in gross booking value is seen as a direct impact of the revenge travelling phenomenon which has been seen all over the world.
After sitting at home for more than a year under covid 19 lockdown restrictions, a large number of people from all around the world have been going on multiple back-to-back tours and trips.
