A pivotal aspect of our overarching growth strategy revolves around enhancing merchant account engagement. We anticipate this will keep on fueling an upsurge in payment transactions, total payment volume, and net revenue,” said Mr. Vishwas Patel, Joint Managing Director of Infibeam Avenues Ltd.

The continuous expansion of our merchant base has significantly bolstered our achievements, culminating in an impressive total 10M+ merchant accounts by the end of the fiscal year. Additionally, our transaction processing soared in 2024, handling a remarkable INR 2.57 lakh crores in payment value, excluding Rupay debit cards and UPI payments. This notable growth underscores our unwavering commitment to facilitating seamless transactions and fostering financial prosperity for our valued merchants.

"The company has demonstrated resilience and agility in navigating through the ever-evolving market landscape and was able to maintain its position as a frontrunner in the industry,” said Mr Vishal Mehta, Chairman and Managing Director, Infibeam Avenues Ltd adding further that despite facing challenges posed by the dynamic and competitive environment, the company has exceeded expectations and remains committed to delivering value to its stakeholders.

Infibeam's sustained growth can be attributed to several factors, with a key driver being its flagship payment brand – CCAvenue. Renowned for offering the widest array of payment options in the industry, CCAvenue’s deep integrations across thousands of third-party merchant systems, fostered continued growth and success.

In addition to its robust payment business, Infibeam's platform segment has also demonstrated impressive resilience, posting 29% year-over-year increase. This growth is primarily fueled by strategic accounts with large enterprise clients, further solidifying Infibeam's position as a leader in the digital commerce ecosystem. It’s noteworthy to mention that despite the ongoing utilization of our ecommerce platform by the Government e-Marketplace (GeM), no income from GeM has been reported in the fourth quarter (Q4), as we have no agreement on commercials with client to date.

Infibeam Avenues Ltd's FY 2023-24 marks a pivotal year in its journey. After years of development and investment in digital payment and platforms business, now the company has embarked on a new path, harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to elevate businesses worldwide. In FY24, company launched its AI business vertical under the brand – Phronetic.AI. The year FY24 witnessed establishment of an AI-Hub at GIFT City, appointment of a CEO for the AI business and launch of THEIA, a visual AI framework/platform.

Company further strengthen its international play for its payment business, as it realigned its international businesses and received regulatory approval from Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and launched mobile-based QR Code payment solutions in the United Arab Emirate (UAE) market.

"In the upcoming fiscal year, our strategic focus will be on expanding internationally, with a particular emphasis on the Middle East market. This will accelerate our growth trajectory in this region, our international subsidiary has announced a pre-IPO round of up to USD 25 million. This investment will fuel our expansion efforts and propel us towards capturing a significant market share." stated Mr. Vishwas Patel, Joint Managing Director of Infibeam Avenues Ltd.

"The digital boom in the Middle East presents us with tremendous potential for growth," Mr. Patel pointed out.

In a strategic move within the domestic payment landscape, the company is gearing up to venture into financial product offerings tailored specifically for merchants. Under the umbrella of a new brand name, collectively referred to as our Merchant Finance Offerings, the company aims to provide merchants with access to a range of financial products, including business loan products, insurance products, and wealth management products.
