As all our orders are received in advance, it allowed our company to streamline our cash flows and we have been able to function with minimal working capital. We follow a philosophy of being asset light so to remain flexible and nimble in our competitive atmosphere and have outsourced a majority of our noncore auxiliary operations allowing us to function without considerable investment in a fixed asset base, giving our company enormous operating leverage when scaling operations.
As we are asset light and centrally managed, We have a vast franchisee network which has allowed us to spread our reach to intercontinental boundaries with a fast growing international base. Acting as our extension in branding and customer acquisition our franchisees enjoy a respectable business model with comfortable working hours and territorial rights, strengthening our association with all with them. All our franchises have met their breakeven and are already profitable while increasing Hummingbird brand and footprint in their territories. With franchisees in India and abroad, we are now focusing on increasing our franchisee penetration up to district levels.
Currently with only a 5% of the total Olympiad market is catered by the entire industry. With gaining popularity and with Olympiad being seen as a necessary supplement to in-house scholastic examinations, Hummingbird has entrenched itself in a moat as the preferred partner for reputable schools.
