New Delhi: Home renovation platform Livspace has become “cash-flow positive” in India business on the back of robust growth in its revenue, a top company official said.

Livspace is expecting around 30% growth in its revenue during the 2023-24 financial year from around Rs 1,100 crore in the preceding fiscal.

India business contributes 80-85% to the company’s total turnover.

The company’s EBITDA losses narrowed to 95.35 million Singapore dollar from 96.86 million Singapore dollar during the period under review.
