Mostafa Kandil, Swvl Founder and CEO, said, “We are grateful to see institutional research analysts take notice of what we believe to be another record-breaking quarter in Q2 where we grew revenues 3.4x year on year while improving profitability in line with our expectation to turn cash flow positive in 2023 and we achieved multiple strategic milestones including organic SaaS launches in Kuwait and Brazil and completed our acquisitions of Urbvan, Volt Lines and door2door.”
Youssef Salem, Swvl CFO, said, “With a well-capitalized balance sheet after raising $29m in early Q3, a clear roadmap to cashflow generation next year, the completion of several recent acquisitions, integrated and significant revenue and cost synergies being realized, continued month-on-month organic growth, lock-up agreements extended by 31 shareholders and executives and now additional equity research initiation, we believe that we are at an inflection point in our shareholder value maximization journey. We look forward to additional research coverage initiation soon.”
