Other performances
  • Digital revenue mix continuously increasing, now at 36% of total retail revenue Industry leading gross margins at 60.4% and 63.0% for Q3 and 9M respectively
  • ROCE at 38% and ROE at 26% (on TTM basis), return ratios reflecting short-term impacts of conscious business investments but are still at very healthy levels and at par with normal precovid years
  • Declared interim dividend of Rs1.50 per share (face value Rs 2 each) making cumulative interim dividend of Rs4.50 per share for FY22.

Sunil Agrawal, Managing Director, Vaibhav Global Limited said, “Revenue in Q3 grew by 3.5% yoy albeit on a higher base and strongly by 33.2% over Q3FY20. Our 9M revenue grew by 10.3% yoy and by 38.9% over 9MFY20. Post Q1, consumers went for revenge outings and vacations thus impacting demand. This phenomenon continued in Q3 leading to muted revenue growth across digital retail industry. Festive demand was encouraging, however demand tapered in later part of Q3, owing to omicron uncertainties.

Gross margins have seen slight contraction mainly due to product mix, elevated shipping costs and demand-supply mismatch at product level owing to longer transit times. During the quarter, investments on new OTA homes, Digital Marketing, Market Places Marketing and OTT marketing continued. These investments are intended to support our growth ambitions for coming years. In USA, our revenue and unique customer counts on OTT have tripled yoy implying a clear opportunity in this market for us.”
