Grab targets Group Adjusted EBITDA breakeven by 2H 2024

Grab Holdings Limited is targeting to achieve breakeven on a Group Adjusted EBITDA basis by the second half of 2024, as it accelerates its path to profitability. For the 2H22, Group Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be USD 380 mn, a 27% improvement compared to the 1H22. With a focus on sustainable growth, Grab also expects Group revenues to grow strongly between 45% to 55% yoy in 2023 on a constant currency basis. Grab also expects to reach breakeven for its Digibank operations by 2026.

 

Grab has expanded its pilot monthly subscription program, GrabUnlimited, to five countries - Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines. For a flat monthly fee, users enjoy benefits and deals across various services on the Grab superapp, including mobility, food and parcel deliveries. (GRAB)

 

Comment: Tech companies taking a strong turn towards achieving profitability. We think GRAB expects fundraising activities to be subdued going forward as investor appetite becomes very risk averse towards

growth sectors such as tech. GRAB comforts investors by also announcing a target for EBITDA profitability. GOTO’s on demand services are being guided to reach contribution margin positive by 1Q23. SEA Limited on the other hand is undergoing major reorganizations worldwide but without giving guidance for the year. (Niko-BRIDS)
