Zomato’s Q4 results revealed a significant turnaround, with the company reporting a net profit of Rs 175 crore for the quarter ending March 31, 2024, a stark contrast to the Rs 188 crore YoY loss in the previous year. This positive shift came alongside a remarkable surge of 73% in operational revenue.

On Monday, Zomato, a food delivery platform, announced a consolidated net profit of Rs 175 crore for the quarter ending March 31, 2024, compared to a Rs 188 crore loss reported in the previous year period. However, the profit fell short of the Rs 191 crore estimate by the SMT poll.
