Swvl Holdings: Buy, Sell, or Hold?

: SWVL | Swvl Holdings Corp. News, Ratings, and Charts

SWVL – Tech-enabled, mass-transit, ride-sharing services provider Swvl (SWVL) has been notching up positive developments, but it has yet to turn a profit. So, let’s evaluate if it is wise to bet on the stock now. Read on.

Swvl Holdings Corp. (SWVL) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is a startup that provides shared transportation services for intercity and intracity trips. It recently completed a business combination and began trading on April 1, merging with a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), Queen’s Gambit Growth Capital, raising $121.50 million in private investment in public equities (PIPE).

The stock has declined 24.9% in price over the past three months to close Friday’s trading session at $7.47. In addition, it is currently trading 34.5% below its all-time high of $11.40, which it hit on April 28, 2022.

Furthermore, the automotive industry is facing severe semiconductor chip shortages and supply chain crises that could hamper the company’s operational plans. So, SWVL’s near-term prospects look bleak.

Here is what could influence SWVL’s performance in the coming months:

Recent Developments

On April 28, 2022, SWVL announced a definitive agreement to acquire Zeelo to become a leading global mass transit tech platform, expanding its footprint to the USA and South Africa, and increasing its presence in the U.K.

On April 25, 2022, SWVL agreed to acquire Volt Lines, a Turkey-based B2B, and Transport as a Service mobility business to expand further in Europe.

On March 24, 2022, SWVL announced an agreement to acquire door2door to expand into Central Europe. This European high-growth mobility platform partners with municipalities, public transit operators, corporations, and automotive companies, providing software for on-demand mobility, multimodal routing, and mobility analytics.

Profitability is the Key Concern

SWVL needs to wait for a long time to become a profitable business because  it plans to expand into several countries over the coming months.
