FabHotels reports Rs 219 Cr revenue and Rs 5 Cr loss in FY23


Casa2 Stays-owned FabHotels has been keeping itself under the radar for the past couple of years and the firm’s sheer focus on execution appears to have paid off well in the last fiscal year. The 10-year-old company registered 48% growth in its income during FY23 and reduced losses, inching closer to profitability.

FabHotels’ revenue from operations spiked to Rs 219 crore in the fiscal year ending March 2023 from Rs 148 crore in FY22, its annual financial statements filed with the Registrar of Companies show.

FabHotels directly competes with Oyo, Treebo and several mid-segment independent chains. IPO-bound Oyo posted a revenue of Rs 5,464 crore in the last fiscal year while its losses stood at Rs 1,286 crore. Accor-funded Treebo Hotels reported Rs 89 crore income and Rs 3.6 crore loss during the fiscal year ending March 2023.

Small is beautiful acquires a whole new meaning to FabHotels and its improving financials. The firm has had to build and survive challenges like the pandemic the hard way, and deserves credit for making it this far. Without the benefit of a generous backer like Softbank, Fabhotels has clearly made every rupee sweat harder to get where it has. With enough headroom for growth with its model, we believe the firm will see much better days ahead.
