Ride-hailing services provider Ola has decided to shut down operations in the UK, Australia and New Zealand and will continue to focus on India business, its promoter ANI Technologies said on Tuesday.

Losses down to Rs 772.25 cr in FY23

  • ANI Technologies, the promoter of Ola, has reported a narrowing of consolidated net loss to Rs 772.25 cr and jump in consolidated revenue by 48% to Rs 2,481.35 cr in FY23
  • It posted a consolidated loss of Rs 1,522.33 crore in the financial year 2021-2022

The Softbank-backed company said that it sees immense opportunity for expansion in India. “Our ride-hailing business is growing rapidly, and we remain profitable and segment leaders in India. The future of mobility is electric - not just in personal mobility, but also for the ride-hailing business and there is immense opportunity for expansion in India.

With this clear focus, we have reassessed our priorities and have decided to shut down our overseas ride-hailing business in its current form in the UK, Australia and New Zealand,” an Ola Mobility spokesperson said.

The company had launched these operations in phases in 2018. ANI Technologies has reported a narrowing of consolidated net loss to Rs 772.25 crore in the fiscal 2023, according to a regulatory filing. The company posted a consolidated loss of Rs 1,522.33 crore in the financial year (FY) 2022.

The consolidated revenue from operations increased by about 48 per cent to Rs 2,481.35 crore in FY23 from Rs 1,679.54 crore in the year-ago period. On a standalone basis, ANI Technologies, which comprises a ride-hailing business, has reported a narrowing of loss to Rs 1,082.56 crore in FY23 compared to a loss of Rs 3,082.42 crore in FY22.

“We remain very excited and focused on our mission to serve 1 billion Indians. As a technology-first business, leading with innovation, we are confident to spearhead the country’s mobility ambitions and lead the next phase of growth in the industry at large,” the spokesperson said.
