MakeMyTrip Limited Announces Strong Fiscal 2011 Second Quarter Results

Fiscal Year 2011 Outlook

The company's long term outlook is optimistic. MakeMyTrip expects fiscal year 2011's revenue less service cost to be between $58 million and $61 million.

Deep Kalra, CEO and Founder, said "We believe MakeMyTrip is well positioned to capture the long term growth in travel services that comes with the growing Indian economy and its middle class. The expected roll out of broadband Internet services throughout the country will only continue to drive the popularity of e-commerce which will benefit online travel companies like MakeMyTrip for many years to come."

Conference Call MakeMyTrip will host a conference call to discuss the company's results for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 beginning at 10:00 a.m. EST on November 15, 2010.  To participate, please dial 1-866-242-1388 from within the U.S. or +65-6722-6342 from any other country. Thereafter, callers will be prompted to enter the participant passcode 20831925. A live webcast of the conference call will also be available through the Investor Relations section of the company's website at http://investors.makemytrip.com .

About Non-IFRS Financial Measures

As certain parts of our revenues are recognized on a "net" basis and other parts of our revenue are recognized on a "gross" basis, we evaluate our financial performance based on revenue less service costs, which is a non-IFRS measure, as we believe that revenue less service cost reflects more accurately the value addition of the travel services that we provide to our customers. The presentation of this non-IFRS information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our consolidated financial results prepared in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB. Our revenue less service costs may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to potential differences in the method of calculation.  The company believes that Adjusted operating profit and Adjusted net income are useful in measuring the results of the company. The IFRS measures most directly comparable to Adjusted operating profit and Adjusted net income are Results from operating activities and Income (Loss) for the period, respectively. The company believes that adjustments to these IFRS measures, including employee stock compensation costs, interest accretion on preference stock, one-time expenses such as IPO listing fees and gain or loss in fair market value of the embedded options within preference stock, provide investors and analysts a more accurate representation of the company's operating results.
