OYO filed its draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) for its Rs 8,000 crore public listing in October last year. Since then, the company's valuation has dipped to as low as $6.5 billion in the private market following reports of a markdown of the company's valuation by SoftBank.

The monthly revenue per hotel increased by 69% year-on-year to Rs 3.48 lakh. The monthly increase in GBV per hotel is due to improved occupancy and higher average room rents as travel returns.
The gross rentals for OYO European homes business stayed stagnant, showing just a 4% increase. "The company is probably betting on the next summer season in Europe as it continued increasing the vacation homes on its platform. As on 30th Sept 22, it had close to 80,000 vacation homes vs 74,000 as of the same day last year. The rise has been through both organic and inorganic growth," OYO said in a filing.
