Just Dial Ltd Quarterly Result Update (Q4 March 23):

Just Dial Ltd., a local search engine company, reported strong quarterly results for the fourth quarter ended March 2023. The company’s revenue for this quarter was Rs. 233 crore, a 39.5% increase compared to Rs. 167 crore in the fourth quarter of the previous year. This growth in revenue shows that the company is hungry for growth.

In the last quarter ended December 2022, the company’s revenue was Rs. 221 crore, showing a quarter-on-quarter revenue growth of 5 percent. The operating profit margin (OPM) for the December 2022 quarter was 12%, which improved to 14% in the fourth quarter of March 2023. The net profit for the fourth quarter was Rs. 84 crore, including other income of Rs. 74 crore. While the overall profit metrics are not good, the significant growth in revenue suggests that the company is on a path of recovery.

For the annual result of March 2023, the company reported revenue of Rs. 845 crore compared to Rs. 647 crore in March 2022. The historical OPM for the company has been in the range of 20-25 percent, but this year it was 10 percent. However, last year, the OPM was negative due to losses. This year, the company is profitable at the operating as well as net level, which seems like a turnaround story.

As per the latest shareholding pattern reported to the exchanges, Reliance Retail Ventures Ltd holds 64.38 percent of the company’s shares, while domestic institutions hold 8.97 percent. DSP Midcap Fund and Quant Mutual Fund have reportedly bought shares during this quarter.
