Bundl Technologies, which operates the food delivery platform Swiggy, increased its loss due to rising expenses.
The SoftBank-backed company reported a consolidated loss of Rs 3,628.9 crore for the fiscal year 2022, which is more than double the previous year’s loss of Rs 1,616.9 crore.
Swiggy’s expenses have nearly reached Rs 10,000 crore, resulting in the loss. Total expenses increased 2.3 times to Rs 9,574.5 crore in FY22, compared to Rs 4,139.4 crore in FY21.
Swiggy, based in Bengaluru, provides a marketplace for food orders and delivery via its technology platform, which was recently valued at $10.7 billion.
In FY22, the Softbank-backed food tech firm reported revenue from operations of Rs 5704.9 crore, more than doubling from Rs 2546.9 crore the previous year.
Over 60 per cent of this, or Rs 3,444.4 crore, came from service sales, which is the income the company earns from providing platform services. The remaining Rs 2123.1 crore came from product sales, primarily from the sale of traded goods on its platform.
Swiggy makes money by offering online platform services to partner merchants (including restaurant merchants, grocery merchants, and delivery partners), advertising services, food and traded goods sales, subscriptions, and other platform services.
