Go Digit IPO: Apply or not?

Anticipating a promising debut of Go Digit shares on Dalal Street, VLA Ambala, Founder of Stock Market Today, remarked, "Go Digit General Insurance Limited has demonstrated remarkable growth, with a 113.35% surge in revenue and a 112.01% rise in PAT between March 31, 2022, and March 31, 2023. The company's assets also expanded from Rs.1,874.80 crore in 2021 to Rs.3,346.75 crore in 2023 and reported a net profit of Rs.35.54 crore for the first time. With reserves and surplus amounting to Rs.2,391.97 crore and total borrowings of Rs.200 crore, it appears to be in a sound financial position. However, its IPO seems to be priced aggressively based on its FY24 annualized earnings. According to analysis, its listing might be subdued or at a moderate 5-15% premium."

Commenting on Go Digit IPO, Rajesh Sinha, Senior Research Analyst at Bonanza Portfolio, stated, "Go Digit is consistently introducing innovative products and value propositions for its customers, which we believe is a crucial differentiator from its peers. It also has plans to expand and diversify its distribution network to enhance customer reach and generate new business. Its advanced technology empowers it to underwrite efficiently. It also leverages advanced technology to drive predictive underwriting models and support customers, partners, and processes."
