Dreamfolks Services is a dominant player in India’s airport lounge aggregation industry and enjoys strong tailwinds. Its asset-light business model increases its ability to scale up with minimal incremental capital requirement resulting in high operating leverage. The company’s strong focus on technology ensures scalability.
The company’s success is dependent on its long-term relationship with card networks and card issuer financial institutions, which on average contributed 98.98% of the total revenue from operations during the Fiscals 2022, 2021 and 2020. This exposes them to risk emanating from the inability to retain their established card networks and card issuer companies as clients. The company’s top 5 clients on average contributed 84.91% of the total revenue from operations during Fiscal 2022, Fiscal 2021 and Fiscal 2020.
Dreamfolks Services is expanding into newer sectors to create customer engagement and provide loyalty management solutions in addition to specific solutions for Card Networks. It also plans to create ancillary revenue opportunities for clients in the online travel agency and airline industries. Its technology-driven solutions and tools are geared inter alia towards providing the clients the option of tailoring and creating different products for the consumers. It constantly aims to identify opportunities to implement product improvements and a dedicated product development team to optimize platform features.
The company’s operations are heavily dependent on the air travel industry. If the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a material adverse effect on the travel industry, it will consequently have a potential impact on the company’s business, financial condition, and results of operations.
As per the Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP), Dreamfolks Services has no listed peers in India. The company, at present, enjoys a virtual monopoly in this segment with a 95% market share, according to its management.
