Softbank-backed Oyo claimed (adjusted) EBITDA-level profitability of Rs 10.6 crore for the June quarter.
In a tweet, Pai who’s at present Chairman of Manipal International Training (Manipal College), stated: “That is pretend accounting! There’s nothing like an adjusted ebitda. They’re attempting to mislead traders by such pretend accounting. Regulators and inventory exchanges ought to cease such misreporting in india.”
The allegations got here after Oyo filed an addendum to its earlier submitted draft purple herring prospectus (DRHP), filed in October 2021 for its IPO, to the Securities and Trade Board of India (SEBI).
The corporate is now eyeing early 2023 for its IPO amid risky international market circumstances.
Abhishek Gupta, Oyo’s Group Chief Monetary Officer (CFO), replied to Pai, saying that the EBITDA is “clearly reported”.
