Nykaa, the leading online beauty and fashion platform, has reported impressive results for the third quarter of FY24, showing strong growth in revenue and profitability.

Revenue from operations grows by 18.7% QoQ and 22.3% YoY

Nykaa’s revenue from operations increased by 18.7% to Rs 1,788.8 crore in Q3 FY24, compared to Rs 1,507 crore in Q2 FY24. The company also registered a 22.3% year-on-year growth in revenue, as it had posted Rs 1,462.8 crore in Q3 FY23.
