Yatra IPO: Should You Invest?
Giving ‘Subscribe- Long Term’ rating to the IPO, brokerage Anand Rathi in a note said, “We believe that for Yatra, there is a scope of business improvement on the back of industry tailwinds, brand recall and business scalability, resulting in expansion of EBITDA margin from here on.”
It added that at an upper band, the company is valued at P/E of 219x while on market-cap/sales it is valued at 5.8x post issue of equity shares, compare to its peer (Easy trip planners – 15.7x) on FY23 basis.
Another brokerage BP Equities also gave ‘Subscribe’ rating to Yatra Online IPO. In its note, it said, “With the growth in the tourism industry, we expect the online travel market share (OTA) to increase faster than captive players, improving the company’s profitability. With the company posting profits in FY23 and strong revenue growth in the past, we remain positive on the company from a medium to long-term perspective. We, therefore, recommend an SUBSCRIBE rating for the issue.”
It also said that being one of the key players, Yatra Online is well-positioned to capture a significant share of growth in the tourism industry in India, owing to its longstanding relationship with both B2B and B2C customers. This enables the company to target India’s most frequent and high-spending travellers and educated urban consumers.
