Managed accommodation provider Stanza Living raised $57 million in debt led by Kotak Mahindra and RBL Bank just before FY23. The fundraise helped the company hack around four-fold growth in the fiscal year ending March 2023.

Stanza Living’s revenue from operations surged to Rs 442 crore in FY23 from Rs 115 crore in FY22, its consolidated financial statements filed with the Registrar of Companies show.

Stanza Living is a managed accommodation platform which provides co-living solutions for working professionals and students. The firm claims to have an inventory of more than 75,000 beds in 450 plus residences with a presence across 24 cities.  

Rental accommodation was the primary source of revenue for Stanza Living. Income from food, annual maintenance charges, and other allied services are some other revenue drivers for the Delhi-based firm. The company also earned Rs 16 crore from interest on investments in FY23.

Due to the lease, its finance and depreciation costs grew to Rs 187 crore and Rs 218 crore respectively during the last fiscal year.

With a strong available base of beds, a presence across 24 cities, and a well oiled system in place presumably, Stanza seems well placed to grow strongly now, in a market that is rated to be a high growth one for the coming decade. The formula really seems to be simply for it now. Increase occupancy levels, to take the average per bed figure up, and keep rightsizing operations carefully based on response.
