Earnings Overview: The food delivery giant also saw a 71% surge in revenue, which reached ₹2,848 crore, primarily attributed to a surge in orders during the festive season. Zomato’s gross order value (GOV) saw a substantial year-on-year increase of 47%, reaching ₹11,422 crore. Zomato’s “Gold” program, launched three quarters ago, has expanded to include 3.8 million members.
Going forward, the company anticipates that the demand uptick in the upcoming December quarter may be somewhat restricted, notwithstanding additional order volumes linked to the Cricket World Cup. As per the food tech company, this is due to the fact that during the Navratri festival and Shradh period, a significant number of Indians observe fasts, leading Zomato to expect the demand surge to be confined to a select few match days and therefore not particularly significant.
Price Action: Zomato’s share price was up 2.88% to trade at ₹119.85 in afternoon trade on Monday.
