The revenue of the entity from international medical tourism rises to Rs. 77 crores in Q3, establishing a 68% growth against Q2 FY 22. Due to continued restrictions in air travel, medical tourism revenues cannot achieve the pre-COVID margins.
How Is Max Healthcare’s Overall Performance in Q3?
The financial performance improved on a sequential basis with lower OPD footfalls, lower revenue through COVID-19 vaccination and a slight fall in occupancy. This is because of the dis-empanelment of certain institutional accounts at a few hospitals in Mohali and NCR and seasonal factors.
This quarter saw a significant drop in the volume of COVID-19 vaccination with a reduction of average daily inoculations to 350 in December. However, there has been a considerable jump of non-COVID admissions throughout all major specialities ─ surpassing pre-COVID margins. The bed share of institutional patients falls from around 37% in Q2 FY 22 to 31% in Q3 FY 22.
Further, the seasonally lean third quarter of FY 22 witnesses a return on capital employed (ROCE) of 32%. The company experiences a bounce back after an initial decrease in occupancies brought about by India’s Omicron wave in the December-January term.
