Paytm Q2 Results Live: Margin expansion to continue over medium term, valuations attractive: Analysts

Strong growth outlook, improved revenue mix and operating leverage should drive EBITDA margins (15% by FY26E) on a multiyear expansionary path. In the next 4 quarters, Paytm will turn profitable and join the global list of large fintechs which enjoy strong growth (>30%), double-digit margins and healthy profitability. However, its valuations at 3.6x EV/revenue remain attractive compared to the 5-6x multiple for this group. As Paytm witnesses strong growth and steady margin expansion, we expect re-rating to accelerate. We initiate at Buy with a target price of 1,300, Jefferies said.

At system level, Paytm's market share in unsecured retail credit disbursals is now ~2.8% and given the strong outlook, we expect it to increase to ~6% (by FY26E) led by ~22% mkt share in BNPL (vs ~12% currently) and ~2% in personal loans (Vs 1.3% currently). Within SME, Paytm's share in micro SME segment (<Rs1mn loans) will increase to ~7% (vs 3.5% currently), according to Jefferies.

Paytm Q2 Results Live: Paytm will turn profitable in 4 quarters: Jefferies

In next 4 quarters, Paytm will turn profitable and be amongst the few large profitable fintechs globally that enjoy strong growth (>30%), double-digit EBITDA margins and stable profitability. However, its valuations at 3.6x FY25 EV/revenue remain at a ~40% discount to this group. We use DCF valuation methodology with growth assumptions of near-term 27%, long-term 17% and terminal 8%. At our valuation, we get implied EV/revenue of 4.6x and EV/adj. EBITDA of ~37x (Sep'25). Using SOTP (for stake in associates), we arrive at a PT of Rs1,300. Key risks are a) asset quality deterioration impacting credit business growth, b) supply pressure from PE selling, c) regulatory risk, Jefferies said.

Paytm Q2 Results Live: Chinese shareholder reducing stake in Paytm a fundamentally positive: analysts

Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma buying 10.30% stake in the company from Antfin resulted in a Chinese entity ceasing to be largest shareholder in the company, which analysts believe to be positive for Paytm’s fundamentals and also remove overhang on the stock.

Analysts at BofA Securities noted that a Chinese shareholder ceasing to be the largest shareholder, would also directionally be positive for the company fundamentals.

“We consider this announcement to be positive as it removes overhang on the stock from the risk that Antfin in future may look to reduce its stake leading to more supply. Furthermore, Sharma buying the stake at Friday's close indicates his confidence in the story with a “skin in the game" approach," BofA said in a report.

This event also reduces risk that some other strategic investor coming who would have a major stake similar to that of Sharma, it added. Moreover, analysts believe a Chinese shareholder (Antfin) ceasing to be the largest shareholder, would also directionally be positive for the company fundamentals. Read here
