For the FY2020 ended December, real estate portal PropertyGuru has reported a net loss of $11.8 million, from a net loss of $39.8 million in the FY2019.

The company also saw revenue of $82.1 million during the FY2020, 7.2% lower than FY2019’s revenue of $88.4 million, and significantly below the $105 million projected in its 2019 prospectus from its aborted IPO attempt on the Australian Stock Exchange.

The most recent FY2020 figures were from PropertyGuru’s filings with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA).

The $82.1 million includes other income of $2.8 million, of which around $1.8 million were from the Jobs Support Scheme (JSS).

The IPO, which was expected to raise some A$380.2 million ($383.3 million), was cancelled due to the volatility in the market.

According to the company’s financial statements, PropertyGuru also saw a fair value loss of $15.1 million on conversion option of Series B preference shares, compared to the $16.0 million gain in FY2019.

In FY2020, PropertyGuru saw a fair value loss of $2.6 million on Series C preference shares, compared to the $1.2 million gain in FY2019.

As at Dec 31, 2020, PropertyGuru’s total liabilities exceeded its total assets by $42.9 million compared to the $39.4 million posted in FY2019.

According to tech publication TechInAsia, citing VentureCap Insights, PropertyGuru’s valuation fell between its Series E and F funding rounds, from US$723 million ($978.9 million) to US$692 million respectively.
