Zaggle Prepaid Ocean Services' net profit tumbled 67.4% to Rs 2.06 crore in Q1 FY24 from Rs 6.30 crore reported in Q1 FY23.
Revenue from operations jumped 33.68% year on year to Rs 118.48 crore in the quarter ended 30 June 2023, driven by growth in corporate credit cards business, launch of new product – Zoyer and customer base expansion.

Profit before tax stood at Rs 2.99 crore in Q1 FY24, down 65.15% as against Rs 8.58 crore recorded in Q1 FY23.

The company's adjusted EBITDA grew by 27.4% to Rs 13.8 crore in Q1 FY24 from 10.83 crore reported in Q1 FY23.

Adjusted EBITDA slipped to 11.65% in Q1 FY24 as compared with 12.22% posted in Q1 FY23.

Total expenses increased 46.03% YoY to Rs 116.94 crore during the quarter. Cost of point redemption / gift cards was at Rs 56.98 crore (up 56.92% YoY) and employee benefits expenses stood at Rs 13.95 crore (up 125.36% YoY) during the period under review.

Finance costs were at Rs 4.41 crore, up 206% YoY, due to high-cost debt. Post the IPO, the company has repaid Rs 47 crore of borrowings which will result in lower finance cost from H2.

Commenting on the performance Raj P Narayanam, Founder and Executive Chairman, Zaggle Prepaid Ocean Services Limited said, “During Q1 FY24, we delivered an operational revenue of Rs 1,185 mn with a strong 34% YoY growth. This increase is attributed to our recent endeavors, notably the introduction of corporate credit cards and launch of our vendor management platform – Zoyer. Further, this growth was fueled by customer base expansion and cross-selling initiatives.

Our expectation of revenue growth for this fiscal year is in the range of 40% to 50%, with an adjusted EBITDA Margin (before ESOP expense) between 11% and 13%. Further, we expect the total ESOP expense to be close to Rs 200 mn in the fiscal year.”
