"Our first full year as a public company has been a landmark year for Yatra. The acquisition of ATB earlier during the year has enabled us to consolidate our position in the large business travel segment in India and become the leading player in the segment and the brand refresh campaigns that we had undertaken during the past year have enabled us to drive significant organic growth as well. The combination of these factors has helped us deliver annual Revenue less service cost growth of 41.3%, thereby beating the top end of our guidance of 35%-40% growth in Revenue less service cost. During the past quarter as well, we continued to deliver strong growth with air ticketing transactions up 38% and standalone hotel room nights booked up 54%. We believe that our unique approach of combining business travel and consumer travel in an emerging growth market like India positions us well to capitalize on the fast-growing travel industry in India." — Dhruv Shringi, Co-founder and CEO
