Dublin, California and Chennai, India (PRWEB) February 24, 2015
KM WEDDING EVENTS MANAGEMENT, INC. (OTC: KMWE), a leading one-stop solution provider of match making and wedding services for Indian & Indian-American markets, today announced financial results for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2014.
Ms. Meera Nagarajan, Chief Executive Officer of KM Wedding Events Management, stated, “We are very pleased to report strong growth in both revenue and profitability for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2014. We look forward to building upon our established track record and leading brand, which is due in large part to our highly rated match making TV show, which has now been running over 15 years on India’s number one tamil television station.”
“We are aggressively leveraging our strong brand and customer base, which includes over 600,000 registered clients, by upselling higher revenue and higher margin wedding event management services. Our success is illustrated by the fact that our wedding services are increasing as a percentage of total revenue. More importantly, our first banquet hall is coming on line this quarter, which should dramatically increase our wedding services revenue. Our near term plan is to operate over ten wedding halls over the next two to three years, which should generated over $20 million of sales annually, with at least 30% EBITDA margins.”
“We believe we have developed a highly scalable business model – providing turn-key solutions for wedding events across India and the US. Assuming conversion of just 10% of our current match making customers into wedding services customers, we would generate an estimated $75 million of revenue with EBITDA margins of approximately 40%. We believe this goal is quite attainable, considering the 60 billion dollar Indian wedding industry is set to grow by 25% per year and there is a lack of quality wedding halls to keep up with the demand. Moreover, the industry is unorganized and highly fragmented, which provides us a unique opportunity to dominate this market by capitalizing on our strong brand.”
Revenue for the fiscal third quarter ending December 31, 2014 increased 67% to $628,015 compared to $376,096 for the same period last year. Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 was $94,328 compared to an operating loss of $15,335 for the same period last year. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $72,937 compared to a net loss of $22,440 for the same period last year.
Revenue for the nine months ending December 31, 2014 increased 47% to $1,443,183 compared to $983,048 for the same period last year. Operating income for the nine months ending December 31, 2014 was $138,573 compared to an operating loss of $80,636 for the same period last year. Net income for the nine months ending December 31, 2014 was $100,002 compared to a net loss of $102,631 for the same period last year.
