Furthermore, revenue more than doubled to US$382 million, dispelling fears that rising inflation and gloomy economic conditions would dampen customer spending. A slight increase in revenue forecasts was also announced by Grab. <br> <br> <b> Our Experts Opinion </b> <br> Grab's approach to focus majorly on optimizing costs and narrowing incentive spends has helped in breaking even the deliveries segment ahead of schedule. <br> While Grab is not out of the woods yet when it comes to near-term risks, a few trends are definitely encouraging when it comes to its earnings in Q3 2022. <br>Firstly, the company has broken even on an EBITDA basis on both ride hailing and deliveries businesses, ahead of its regional rivals GoTo and Sea Ltd. <BR>Secondly, the company's efforts away from being a Super App into consolidating its core businesses (ride hailing and deliveries) and reduction of incentives to customers seem to be bearing fruit. </p> <a href="https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-11-16/grab-posts-smaller-than-expected-loss-as-cost-cuts-kick-in?leadSource=uverify%20wall" target="_blank"> <img src="https://global-uploads.webflow.com/614a9edd8139f5def3897a73/62e0f4e09a22710bd10dbda7_Asset%2058%404x.png" style="display: block; height: auto;width: 115px; border: 0;padding-top: 10px; max-width: 100%;margin-left:30px;" title="CTA"> </a> <img class="mx-200" src="https://global-uploads.webflow.com/614a9edd8139f5def3897a73/62e0f7c98c1c3a422612895f_Asset%2059%404x.png" style="width: 280px;display: block; height: auto; border: 0;padding-top: 40px; max-width: 100%;margin-left:30px;" title="heading"> <p style="margin-top:36px;margin-bottom:0px;margin-right:0;margin-left:0;line-height:1.5;padding-top:0px;padding-bottom:0px;padding-right:10px;padding-left:30px;color:#171723;font-family: aktiv-grotesk, sans-serif;font-size:16px;color: #002D9C;text-align:left;font-weight:300;"> <a style="color: #002D9C;text-decoration:none;" href="https://www.livemint.com/companies/news/after-paytm-meesho-joins-ondc-to-connect-buyers-with-hyperlocal-sellers-11669208653593.html" target="_blank"> <b>Meesho launches on ONDC platform to help connect buyers with hyperlocal sellers</b> </a> <br> <i style="color:#171723;font-size: 14px;">November 23rd, 2022</i> </p> <br> <p style="margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:0px;margin-right:0;margin-left:0;line-height:1.5;padding-top:0px;padding-bottom:0px;padding-right:10px;padding-left:30px;color:#171723;font-family: aktiv-grotesk, sans-serif;font-size:16px;text-align:left;font-weight:300;"> A pilot program of Meesho's ONDC will be launched in Bengaluru in the coming months, before being expanded to other locations.

It includes platforms like Dunzo and Zepto, which have begun charging customers INR 3-7 per order, depending on the location, as handling charges in addition to delivery fees. <br> <br> <a style="color: #002D9C;" href="https://entrackr.com/2022/11/exclusive-dunzo-to-shut-down-some-dark-stores-in-ncr-and-hyderabad/" target="_blank"> This development was followed by Dunzo’s decision to shut down about 25% of its dark stores for cost optimization. </a> <br><br> <b> Our Experts Opinion </b> <br> This looks like a step in the right direction as currently Dunzo loses INR 230 per order as per an Entrackr report. The increase in delivery charges will impove unit economics, even though it might impact volume of orders. <br> These measures highlight a shift in Dunzo's focus on profitability. Aside from limiting itself to serving a smaller sliver of the billion plus Indian demographic (50-70 million), which resides in densely populated affluent neighbourhoods, the company's increase in delivery charges also responds to a push from new investors in its upcoming round of fundraise towards a quicker path to profitability. </p> <a href="https://www.financialexpress.com/industry/dunzo-to-zepto-quick-commerce-deliveries-may-not-be-as-fast-in-future/2886399/" target=" _blank"> <img src="https://global-uploads.webflow.com/614a9edd8139f5def3897a73/62e0f4e09a22710bd10dbda7_Asset%2058%404x.png" style="display: block;width: 115px; height: auto; border: 0;padding-top: 10px; max-width: 100%;margin-left:30px;" title="CTA"> </a> <br> <p style="margin-top:36px;margin-bottom:0px;margin-right:0;margin-left:0;line-height:1.5;padding-top:0px;padding-bottom:0px;padding-right:10px;padding-left:30px;color:#171723;font-family: aktiv-grotesk, sans-serif;font-size:16px;color: #002D9C;text-align:left;font-weight:300;"> <a style="color: #002D9C;text-decoration:none;" href="https://www.businessinsider.in/tech/news/spacexs-starlink-will-expand-internet-service-to-moving-rvs-trucks-and-cars-for-135/month/articleshow/95106316.cms" target="_blank"> <b>SpaceX's Starlink will expand internet service to moving vehicles in December 2022 </b> </a> <br> <i style="color:#171723;font-size: 14px;">October 26th, 2022</i> </p> <br> <p style="margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:0px;margin-right:0;margin-left:0;line-height:1.5;padding-top:0px;padding-bottom:0px;padding-right:10px;padding-left:30px;color:#171723;font-family: aktiv-grotesk, sans-serif;font-size:16px;text-align:left;font-weight:300;">As of May, Starlink for RVs was available only for parked vehicles.

BlockFi and FTX had signed a deal of extending a US$ 400 million revolving credit facility to the Company in order to meet its near-term cash obligations. In addition, it was agreed that FTX would hold an option to acquire all the equity in the Company for a valuation of up to US$ 240 million, based on certain performance triggers and earnouts. <br><br> <b> Our Experts Opinion </b> <br> There are two major factors contributing to BlockFi’s bankruptcy announcement - <br> 1. With its putative acquirer and provider of revolver credit facility now bankrupt, the bailout deal agreed between BlockFi and FTX in June this year is likely to be void, forcing the company to look for another creditor to help it with its immediate liquidity needs. <br>2. BlockFi itself had a loan exposure to Alameda Research, a related party entity of FTX, which defaulted on approximately US$680 million in funds lent to it by BlockFi, precipitating an immediate bankruptcy filing. As the company has filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy, it will not immediately cease operations and will continue to work out on a plan to repay its creditors. <br> <a href="https://www.cnbc.com/2022/11/28/how-ftx-death-spiral-spelled-doom-for-blockfi-according-to-filing.html" target=" _blank"> <img src="https://global-uploads.webflow.com/614a9edd8139f5def3897a73/62e0f4e09a22710bd10dbda7_Asset%2058%404x.png" style="display: block;width: 115px; height: auto; border: 0;padding-top: 10px; max-width: 100%;margin-left:0px;" title="CTA"> </a> <br> </p> <img src="https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1VGJLn6pxhDytQfo2igD_FVCAVJqh2jE1" style="width: 280px;display: block; height: auto; border: 0;padding-top: 40px; max-width: 100%;margin-left:30px;" title="heading"> <br> <p style="margin-top:36px;margin-bottom:0px;margin-right:0;margin-left:0;line-height:1.5;padding-top:0px;padding-bottom:0px;padding-right:10px;padding-left:30px;color:#171723;font-family: aktiv-grotesk, sans-serif;font-size:16px;color: #002D9C;text-align:left;font-weight:300;"> <a style="color: #002D9C;text-decoration:none;" href="https://inc42-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/inc42.com/buzz/edtech-startup-skill-lync-acquires-online-learning-platform-crio/amp/" target="_blank"> <b> Edtech startup Skill-Lync acquired online learning platform Crio for an undisclosed amount</b> </a> <br> <i style="color:#171723;font-size: 14px;">November 21st, 2022</i> </p> <br> <p style="margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:0px;margin-right:0;margin-left:0;line-height:1.5;padding-top:0px;padding-bottom:0px;padding-right:10px;padding-left:30px;color:#171723;font-family: aktiv-grotesk, sans-serif;font-size:16px;text-align:left;font-weight:300;"> The acquisition will aid Skill-Lync to enhance its offerings in the online education segment.

The acquisition provides an opportunity to build one of the best higher education platforms, and adds value by enhancing its offerings in the online education segment. Furthermore, continuous offerings like Skill Lync, have been a relatively less expensive micro-segment within edtech in India; with a customer base of a higher repeat rate and deeper pockets (tech sector employees), a comprehensive offering could help Skill Lync boost its service offerings better.<br> <a href="https://inc42-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/inc42.com/buzz/edtech-startup-skill-lync-acquires-online-learning-platform-crio/amp/" target="_blank"> <img src="https://global-uploads.webflow.com/614a9edd8139f5def3897a73/62e0f4e09a22710bd10dbda7_Asset%2058%404x.png" style="display: block;
