Founded by Ritesh Agarwal in 2013, OYO has been expanding its operations across the world at an extraordinary pace. The Company is operating in more than 500 cities across India, China, Malaysia, Nepal, the UK, UAE and Indonesia. OYO recently bought Amsterdam-based vacation rental business, @Leisure Group for €369.5 million. With this acquisition Oyo will be able to improve its presence in the short-term property rental space. Given the fact that more and more tourists are opting for private properties rather than hotel rooms, this has been a very smart move for OYO. @Leisure has about 30,000 holiday homes across 13 European countries, and has an addition 85,000 listed on its online booking platform.
