Yatra Online, Inc. Announces Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2022

Gurugram, India and New York, New York--(Newsfile Corp. - August 30, 2022) - Yatra Online, Inc. (NASDAQ: YTRA) (the "Company"), India's leading corporate travel services provider and one of India's leading online travel companies, today announced its unaudited financial and operating results for the three months ended June 30, 2022.

"We posted our best quarter yet since the onset of COVID, witnessing a strong recovery in both corporate and consumer businesses following the impact of Omicron in the quarter ended March 31, 2022. Both our Revenue and Adjusted Revenue for the quarter came in at a post-COVID high of INR 899.0 million (USD 11.4 million), and INR 1,253.7 million (USD 15.9 million), respectively. Adjusted Revenue was up 27.9% sequentially as travel recovered strongly across the board in the quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was a very healthy INR 123.5 million (USD 1.6 million) which reflects the investments we are making in our Freight business. India's domestic passenger traffic in June 2022 was at 83% of pre-COVID levels and business travel gross bookings for Yatra are currently trending at approximately 90% of pre-Covid levels. International travel has also begun to recover strongly post the easing of international travel restrictions towards the start of June. Corporate travel trends are highly encouraging and this was reflected in record customer signings in the June quarter with 27 large to medium enterprise contracts signed during the quarter.

As you may recall, our controlled Indian subsidiary, Yatra Online Limited ("Yatra India"), filed a Draft Red Herring Prospectus ("DRHP") on March 25, 2022, with the Securities and Exchange Board of India ('SEBI'), which is the main stock market regulatory body in India, for a potential initial public offering and listing of its equity shares on the Indian stock exchanges. We are continuing to work with the regulator to obtain the necessary clearances for the offering. We expect this offering, if completed in the future, to strengthen our balance sheet and better position us to take advantage of the rapidly recovering leisure and business travel market in India." - Dhruv Shringi, Co-founder and CEO.

COVID-19 Pandemic

Toward the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021, a severe second wave of COVID-19 infections emerged in India that was more severe than the first wave that occurred in 2020. Further, on November 26, 2021, World Health Organisation ("WHO") designated a new variant B.1.1.529, as a variant of concern, named Omicron, which due to its wide-spread in India resulted in the third wave of COVID-19 infections. India's domestic passenger traffic in June 2022 was at 83% of pre-COVID levels. International travel has also begun to recover strongly post the easing of international travel restrictions towards the start of June. The Indian travel industry of late has started experiencing a continued recovery of business and international travel to pre-pandemic levels though it still remains difficult for us to predict how long the pandemic will continue and what impact this may have on the travel sector and our business in the times to come. The extent of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, results of operations, cash flows and growth prospects remain uncertain and would be dependent on future developments. These include, but are not limited to, the severity, extent and duration of the pandemic, its impact on the travel industries and consumer spending, rates of vaccination and the effectiveness of vaccinations against various mutations or variants of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We continue to remain nimble in implementing certain measures and policies in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, we have largely automated our re-scheduling and cancellation of bookings and provided customers greater flexibility to defer or cancel their travel plans. In addition, we had also undertaken certain cost reduction initiatives, including implementing salary reductions and freezes and work from home policies, renegotiating fixed costs such as rent, deferring non-critical capital expenditures, reducing marketing expenses and renegotiating supplier payments and contracts which are being rolled back gradually as the we move towards achieving the pre-Covid levels of business, however, we expect to continue to adapt our policies and cost reduction initiatives as the situation evolves.

Results of Three Months Ended June 30, 2022

Revenue. We generated Revenue of INR 899.0 million (USD 11.4 million) in the three months ended June 30, 2022, an increase of 192.9% compared with INR 306.9 million (USD 3.9 million) in three months ended June 30, 2021. The increase in revenue was primarily due to the strong recovery in domestic travel demand as a result of the diminishing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in India in the quarter ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Our Revenue in the current reported quarter increased from INR 604.9 million (USD 7.7 million) in the three months ended March 31, 2022; an increase of INR 294.2 million (USD 3.7 million) QoQ due to an increase in gross bookings.

Service Cost. Our Service Cost increased to INR 146.7 million (USD 1.9 million) in the three months ended June 30, 2022 , compared to Service Cost of INR 9.4 million (USD 0.1 million) in the three months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to the strong recovery in domestic travel demand as a result of the diminishing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in India in the quarter ended June 30, 2022, as compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

On a sequential basis, Service Cost increased by INR 100.1 million (USD 1.3 million), or 214.4% QoQ, compared to Service Cost of INR 46.7 million (USD 0.6 million) in the three months ended March 31, 2022, due to an increase in sales of holiday packages.

Adjusted Revenue(1) Our Adjusted Revenue increased by 156.6% to INR 1,253.7 million (USD 15.9 million) in the three months ended June 30, 2022 from INR 488.7 million (USD 6.2 million) in the three months ended June 30, 2021. In the three months ended June 30, 2022, Adjusted Revenue includes the add-back of expenses in the nature of consumer promotion and certain loyalty program costs reduced from Revenue of INR 481.8 million (USD 6.1 million) compared to an add-back of INR 112.2 million (USD 1.4 million) in the three months ended June 30, 2021. These expenses have been added back to calculate Adjusted Revenue, with the accompanying increase in marketing and sales promotions expenses, to more accurately reflect the way we view our ongoing business. Under IFRS 15, these expenses are required to be reduced from Revenue, an IFRS measure. The increase in Adjusted Revenue resulted mainly from an increase of 157.6% in our Adjusted Revenue from Air Ticketing along with an increase of 570.6% in our Adjusted Revenue from Hotels and Packages, an increase of 157.9% in Other Services and a decrease of 9.0% in Others (Including Other Income) which primarily consists of advertisement income, facilitation fees and write back of liabilities no longer required to be paid.

On a sequential basis Adjusted Revenue increased by INR 273.7 million (USD 3.5 million), or 27.9% quarter-over-quarter, compared to Adjusted Revenue of INR 980.0 million (USD 12.4 million) for the three months ended March 31, 2022, due to an increase in gross bookings.

The increase was on account of an increase in the borrowings which is partially offset by decrease in interest on the lease liability.

Liquidity. As of June 30, 2022, the balance of cash and cash equivalents and term deposits on our balance sheet was INR 978.7 million (USD 12.4 million). The decrease in cash balance from the sequential quarter is primarily on account of increase in working capital deployment due to the recovery of the corporate travel business. During the quarter ended June 30, 2022, we secured working capital facilities of INR 550 million (USD 7.0 million) from Axis Bank Limited, which we have commenced availing subsequent to quarter end. We expect this facility to grow as business travel recovers. Further, subsequent to quarter end, we have availed the facility of INR150 million against an issuance of 1,500 Nos. of Non-Convertible Debenture ("NCD") at face value of INR 1,00,000/- each.
