Company Financials

PARTICULARS (in million Rs.) 2019-20 2018-19 2017-18
ASSETS 2820 2430 1800
REVENUE 1797 1510 1135
NET PROFIT 347 239 0.50

The company is doing much better since previous years. The company’s asset base as well as the company’s revenues are flourishing and improving. The company had only 0.50 million Rs as its net profit in the initial phase but today it bags nearly 347 million Rs as its net Profit. The latest records also display that the company has achieved almost 311 million Rs in net profits as of September 2020 end. This is a great sign for the company given the COVID situation. The company has done pretty well on the frontline business in times of lockdown. The Revenue has taken a hit however in Lockdown. It has come to 815 Million Rs in 2020 Sept. Hence  the company has been working hard to achieve the similar position that it had in 2019-20.

If looked with a neutral point of view the travel and tourism business has suffered the most due to COVID situation. This has cracked open many companies and damaged their liquidity. If the company has still managed to stay afloat and do well as per the standards set in 2019-2020 it is great on part of the company. The IPO may also be a reason to boost the liquidity and expand post COVID period. Hence one should also take a close look on companies long term plans in 5 years.

Asset History

One more interesting fact is that the company’s assets are growing constantly. The revenue however shrunk in 2020 Sept but the assets have grown significantly. The assets base at 2020 Sept end is 3570 million Rs. The asset also increased from 2017. The asset base increased with a consistency of 600 million Rs. Hence the company is working constantly to expand itself which is a good news for the investors. The reason is more the expansion plans of the company, more would be the revenue flow in near future. Hence for longer term perspectives this company is totally viable for the investors.

  • Great domestic networking and international contacts as well.
  • More than 1100000 hotels under its brochure for booking. The company is much active in its hotel booking business. This provides diversity to the company.
  • 400 + airlines registered domestically and internationally. Hence the company has good domestic as well as international relations with clients.
  • Second in rank among the domestic travel agencies in India.
  • More than 50000 travel agents working under the EaseMyTrip brand name
  • Great consistency in terms of financial performance
  • Suffered revenue loss in COVID situation
  • Tourism industry not at its peak post COVID situation. This can be a red flag for the company. Also many countries are still not allowing foreign people to come into their domain. Hence it may take a while to recover the losses of 2020 and 2021.
