PB Fintech, the parent company of Policybazaar and Paisabazaar, said its consolidated loss for the quarter ended September 2022 narrowed to Rs 186.63 crore compared to Rs 204.44 crore loss in the same quarter last year. The growth was led by strong growth in insurance premiums, credit disbursal and operating revenue.
The company said its revenue from operations for the period jumped 105.11 percent to Rs 573.47 crore from Rs 279.58 crore reported in the corresponding quarter last year.
