From the above, we can see that the company derived its income from seven major segments.

Overall, the Public Transport Services and Taxi segments accounted for the lion’s share of ComfortDelGro’s revenue – 90.4%. The remaining 9.6% of its income is derived from various services to support the transport and automotive industry.

Geography-wise, we can see that the company’s income is derived from four main regions.

Similarly, the top two regions accounted for the bulk of its income – 82.3%. Still, it’s good to note that about 41% of its income is from overseas and not entirely from Singapore.

Key takeaway

In sum, we can see that ComfortDelGro operates in multiple regions and business segments. Yet, its income is still highly concentrated in the top two segments, across two regions.

Thus, investors should be comfortable with such a concentration when investing in the transport conglomerate.
