Strategic Acquisitions and Growth Plans:


PhysicsWallah's investment in Xylem Learning aligns with its consistent expansion strategy. PhysicsWallah has acquired several companies in the past year, including Knowledge Planet, iNeuron, Altis Vortex, PrepOnline, and FreeCo. This series of acquisitions underscores PhysicsWallah's commitment to quality education and its desire to consolidate its position in the Indian edtech market. With the infusion of funds, Xylem aims to achieve a revenue of Rs 300 crore with 25% EBITDA in the financial year 2024, doubling its previous fiscal year's revenue.
