12/01/2022 at 1:04 PM

New Delhi, Jan 12: EaseMyTrip, India’s second-largest online travel platform, has announced that the Board of Directors have approved and recommended the issuance of fully paid-up Bonus Shares in the ratio of 1:1 out of its free reserves created out of profit, subject to the shareholders’ approval through postal ballot.

The record date will be announced in due course.

The bonus shares come on the heels of remarkable results for the company, where it achieved a profit jump of more than four-fold in Q2FY22, generating strong and sustainable value for its stakeholders.

In an effort to strengthen the non-air segment, EaseMyTrip has also recently announced acquiring companies like Spree Hospitality, Traviate and Yolobus. On the back of this phenomenal growth across all segments, the company has also declared interim dividends twice since its listing in March 2021.

Commenting on the issuance of bonus shares, Nishant Pitti, CEO and Co-Founder, EaseMyTrip said, “Despite the challenges faced due to the pandemic, EaseMyTrip has consistently recorded profitable results due to a sustainable and resilient business model. Looking at the new avenues for growth from the non-airsegment and our continued focus on financial and operational efficiency, we will continue to generate value for ourstakeholders. Through the issuance of bonus shares, we want to reward our existing shareholders, allowing them to increase their equity in the group and gain greater exposure to our future growth.”

EaseMyTrip is one of the very few e-commerce platforms in the world that bootstrapped itself to the IPO.

In the last 13 years of its existence, EaseMyTrip has never raised capital from any external sources and has grown market-share via profits and internal accruals. The company has been profitable since its inception and continues to have very strong plans for this year as well.
