Fintech Zaggle's FY24 revenues up 40%, profits nearly double to Rs 44 Cr

Listed B2B fintech startup Zaggle's FY24 revenue from operations rose 40.1% year-on-year (YoY) to Rs 775 crore, matching increased spends, while profits nearly doubled to Rs 44 crore, according to the consolidated financial statement.

In the previous financial year, the Hyderabad-based spend management platform earned Rs 553 crore in revenues.

Notably, in the last quarter of FY24, Zaggle reported its highest-ever quarterly revenue at Rs 273 crore.

“In FY24 and Q4 FY24, we set a new record in terms of revenue from SaaS fees, program fees and Propel Points. This led to our highest-ever performance across key profitability metrics during these periods," said Raj P Narayanam, Founder and Executive Chairman, Zaggle Prepaid Ocean Services Limited.

Zaggle also increased spending by 39.2% to Rs 727 crore in FY24 from Rs 522 crore in FY23. Notably, the company's expenditure on incentives and cash back more than doubled to Rs 216 crore in the financial year ended March 2024, from Rs 100 crore incurred in the previous financial year.

The company said the increase in incentive and cashback can be attributed to the increase in revenue and market push for Zoyer, its business spend management platform with embedded finance options.

Despite growing expenses, the company nearly doubled in FY24, and for Q4, it increased 154% YoY to Rs 19.1 crore. While gross profit has remained flat over the past few years, profit after tax has fluctuated: Rs 19.33 crore in FY21, which more than doubled to Rs 41.92 crore in FY22, and then decreased to Rs 22.9 crore in FY23.

During the year, the company's debt decreased from Rs 121 crore to Rs 73 crore, leading to a reduction in finance costs YoY. However, the sequential increase in finance costs is attributed to fees associated with the prepayment of debt, it said.
