Swvl 3Q21 Earnings Prepared Remarks

Abdelrahman Sukar

Good morning and welcome to Swvl Inc.’s third quarter 2021 earnings call. A copy of our Q3 earnings press release issued on October 12th is available in the Investor Relations tab of our website at www.Swvl.com. Joining me on the call are Mostafa Kandil, our Cofounder and CEO, and Youssef Salem, our CFO, who will provide some additional color on the quarter as well as several of the recent announcements that we have made.

Before we begin, we would like to remind everyone that comments made by management today will contain forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include plans, expectations, estimates and projects that involve significant risks and uncertainties. These risks are discussed in the registration statement on Form F-4 filed by Pivotal Holdings Corp, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, in connection with the Company’s proposed business combination with Queen’s Gambit Growth Capital. Actual results may differ materially from the results discussed in these forward-looking statements.

In addition, during today’s call, management will refer to certain non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the schedules contained in our earnings report.

I will now turn the call over to Youssef to discuss our third quarter financial results. Youssef?

Youssef Salem

Thanks, Abdelrahman.

Despite the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we achieved exceptional third quarter results, drove significant growth in revenue, users, bookings, and utilization, and more than tripled our business year-over-year.

For the quarter, we reported $16.0 million of gross revenue, up 264% year-over-year, and 1,355% over the past three years and increased bookings by approximately 230% year-over-year to 9.0 million. We grew our base of active users by approximately 207% year-over-year to 507,700 as we continue to see strong demand for our safe, reliable, and affordable transportation services, and achieved an impressive 83% fleet utilization rate, which represents an improvement of 73% over the last three years.

Cairo, the first market where Swvl launched, is a useful illustration for the transformative and profitable potential of our business model as it scales and matures. There, we continue to see strong double-digit month on month growth and achieved 92% utilization, 31% gross margin and -2.9% net margin.

Our gross margin for the quarter was 17.6%, an improvement of 780% over the last two years, while net margin was -12.5%, an improvement of 279% over the last two years. Notably, Swvl turned net margin profitable during COVID-19 in the third quarter of 2020 to conserve cash, demonstrating our ability to strategically balance growth and profitability and navigate dynamic market environments.



Looking ahead, we are excited by our robust pipeline of 156 active TaaS/SaaS clients, which organically, amounts to approximately $180 million of annualized gross revenue. That is more than our current 2022 gross revenue estimates across our B2C/B2G, TaaS and SaaS businesses. We also continue to expand our geographic footprint, with multiple B2C city launches planned for the fourth quarter, and an active pipeline of accretive M&A opportunities, building on our signing of a definitive agreement for the acquisition of a controlling interest in Shotl in the third quarter.

Additionally, we were also able to realize meaningful efficiencies across our platform during the quarter. Over the last two years, we decreased the time it takes for route cohorts to reach over 60% utilization by approximately 89%, with route cohorts now reaching 60% utilization in just one month. And we achieved an approximately 33% decrease in the time taken for customer cohorts to reach more than $14 of revenue per month over the last two years, with customer cohorts now reaching more than $14 of revenue in two months. These strong fundamentals set the stage for continued growth, as routes are significantly exceeding breakeven utilization and riders are delivering more than double acquisition costs in their first month.

Turning now to our updated guidance for 2022.

Given the strength of our results, we have raised our full-year 2022 guidance by 10% and now expect to achieve 2022 gross revenue of $155 million, up from previous guidance of $141 million.

Overall, we are encouraged by what was a truly impressive quarter, and believe that the strong trends and improvements that we are seeing across the business will result in accelerated growth moving forward as we continue to execute our long-term growth strategy.

I will now turn the call over to Mostafa. Mostafa?

Mostafa Kandil

Thanks, Youssef.

I’d like to start by providing some additional color on several of the recent announcements that we have made, which have significantly advanced our long-term growth strategy as we progress towards the closing of our transformative business combination with Queen’s Gambit Growth Capital, currently expected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2021.

In connection with this transaction, we are pleased to have completed the pre-funding of $35.5 million of the $100 million aggregate PIPE subscription raised in connection with our proposed business combination with Queen’s Gambit. We saw strong demand from strategic and financial investors who participated in the pre-funding. The proceeds raised through the transaction are expected to accelerate our expansion efforts and to further our investment in Swvl’s proprietary technology platform. With this immediate infusion of growth capital, we are even better positioned to bring our transformative daily commuting, inter-city retail travel and TaaS offerings to new markets.



Shortly following our business combination agreement signing announcement, we announced the nomination of three highly experienced women and technology leaders – Victoria Grace, Lone Fønss Schrøder, and Esther Dyson – to the combined company’s board of directors upon completion of the transaction. With these nominations, we have made our commitment clear to ensuring that our leadership reflects the same diversity as our users and growing employee base, and we look forward to welcoming them to the Board.

Each of these highly accomplished women will provide a unique lens, deep financial and operational experience and global networks that will be instrumental in realizing our next phase of growth, and we are confident that we will create even greater value for all stakeholders moving forward. Building on these nominations, we announced the formation of an advisory committee, including two members of Queen’s Gambit’s board of directors, to focus on fostering continued diversity and inclusion as a public company.

We also announced a strategic partnership with Concordium, a leading blockchain technologies company, to, for the first time, leverage blockchain to develop transformative next generation mass transit systems. Concordium will provide us with a technology platform that aims to upgrade the mass transit travel experience for our customers, and is intended to solve highly-complex logistical challenges inherent in mass transit.

The partnership also advances our decarbonization efforts and smart, green mobility initiatives, while providing compelling benefits such as linking driver remuneration to performance in order to incentivize drivers to provide the best possible service, increase efficiency, enhance service quality, and make trips faster and cheaper. We look forward to providing additional updates on our progress over the coming months.

In terms of M&A, we announced the signing of a definitive agreement for the acquisition of a controlling interest in Shotl, a mass transit SaaS platform that partners with governments, municipalities and companies to reach populations living or working in low-density areas that are largely underserved by existing mass transit and ride sharing options. Their customers include senior citizens, and people with reduced mobility, who often lack equitable access to transportation.

The acquisition accelerates our growth strategy by expanding our platform into Europe a full year ahead of schedule, Brazil more than 6 months ahead of schedule, and APAC, which provides access to significant value creation opportunities. It also more than doubled our geographic footprint with the addition of 22 cities across 10 countries, demonstrating clear progress against our stated objective of achieving approximately $1 billion in annual gross revenue and be operating in more than 20 countries on five continents by 2025.

Shotl will now be able to leverage our proprietary technologies to further optimize routes and maximize vehicle load, all the while reducing traffic congestion. As a company that has made significant strides in advancing sustainable mass transit over the past several years, we are confident that Shotl’s market-leading technology and expertise will greatly contribute to the Swvl platform, advancing our mission to provide superior transportation alternatives for all. We continue to expect the transaction to close in the fourth quarter of this year.



Additionally, we expanded into five new cities in Saudi Arabia primarily through our TaaS offerings, including two cities within the cluster of Neom, Saudi Arabia’s new $500 billion smart mega-city. The expansion brings our market leading presence to 37 cities across 16 countries, as we continue to progress towards our expansion objectives.

Finally, we published our first annual ESG report. Swvl is a mission-driven company focused on leveraging our platform for the betterment of society, and we take the role that we play in the lives of all Swvl stakeholders extremely seriously. ESG is at the core of everything we do. Our “Right to Mobility” strategy, which is detailed in the report, is focused on addressing safety, accessibility, societal and environmental challenges with differentiated mobility solutions. It also highlights our commitment to helping underserved populations achieve greater social and economic equity by allowing them to go where they want to go, when they want to go in a sustainable matter. We encourage you to read a copy of the report, which is available at www.Swvl.com.

Overall, we are very pleased with the tremendous progress that we have made in such a short period of time. Our strong third quarter results clearly demonstrate strong momentum in our business, and we are confident that our transition to a public company will only accelerate our growth trajectory as we continue to disrupt mass transit on a global scale.
