BENGALURU: South Indian amusement park and resorts player Wonderla Holidays Limited (Wonderla) reported 11.7 per cent lower footfalls in the quarter ended 31 December, 2015 (Q3-2016, current quarter) because of the bad weather across Southern India that had also caused floods and destruction in Chennai. The company reported 5.66 lakh footfalls in the current quarter as compared to 6.41 lakh footfalls in Q3-2015. Despite this setback, the company has posted 6.5 per cent year on year (YoY) growth in total income from operations (TIO) for the current quarter at Rs 50.43 crore as compared to Rs 47.36 crore and a 16.7 per cent quarter and quarter (QoQ) growth as compared to Rs 43.23 crore. Amongst Wonderla’s peers are Adlabs, Ramoji Film City and Essel World

Note: 100,00,000 = 100 lakh = 10 million = 1 crore

Increase in revenue can be attributed to the higher average ticket and non-ticket revenues per visitor, says the company. Net average ticket revenue per customer in Q3-2016 increased 19 per cent to Rs 686.90 as compared to Rs 579.50 in Q3-2015. Average non-ticket revenue per customer increased 33 per cent to Rs 230.40 from Rs 173.70 in Q3-2015.

Company speak

“We are generally satisfied with the performance during the third quarter of the ongoing financial year. We have recorded growth in revenue in spite of a 11.7 per cent decline in the footfalls at the parks during the quarter, mainly due to unfavourable weather conditions during November. We are seeing a rebound in footfalls, and are optimistic about growth in footfall in the coming quarters for both existing amusement parks. We are also eagerly waiting to launch our brand new amusement park in Hyderabad to public within a couple of months,” said Wonderla managing director Arun K Chittilappilly.

Revenue streams

The company has three amusement parks in Bengaluru, Kochi and Hyderabad and a resort in Bengaluru. A large part of its revenues come from its Bengaluru operations.

It reports two revenue streams – from sales of services and from sales of products.

Revenue from sales of services in Q3-2016 increased 3.4 per cent YoY to Rs 42.64 crore (84.6 per cent of TIO) from Rs 41.24 crore (87.1 per cent of TIO) in Q3-2015 and increased 15.3 per cent QoQ from Rs 36.98 crore (85.5 per cent of TIO).
