Market observers say the ixigo IPO GMP remained steady despite volatility on Dalal Street, which augurs well about the book build issue.

ixigo IPO review

Giving a 'subscribe' tag to the public offer, Rajan Shinde, Research Analyst at Mehta Equities, said, "By looking at the financials, the company showed a robust growth in revenue from operations in FY2022 and FY 2023 by 180%/32.1%, and net profit(loss) by Rs. -210.94cr/Rs.233.96 cr in FY 2022 & FY 2023. The company posted a loss for FY22 on account of the pandemic. On valuation parse at the upper band of Rs.93/-, the issue asks for a Market Cap of Rs.3603/- Cr. Based on annualized FY 2024 earnings and fully diluted post-IPO paid-up capital, the company is asking a P/E of 41.12x (which includes one-time exceptional gains), which appears to be fully priced by looking at the near-term growth triggers. If we exclude the one-time exceptional gains, the valuations get more expensive when compared to listed peers. Investors should also understand that the offer with higher OFS and the low founder holding gives less skin in the business game, an area of concern for new investors."

Based On the strong presence of IXIGO in rail bookings and a significant market share through IXIGO and ConfirmTkt, the company is well-positioned in the rapidly growing travel sector. Considering all parameters, Mehta Equities expert recommends that only risk-taking investors can "SUBSCRIBE with Risk" to the Le Travenues Ltd (IXIGO) IPO for a long-term perspective only.

At an upper band, the company is valued at P/E of 154x while on market-cap/sales, it is valued at 7.2x post issue of equity shares, compared to its peers (Yatra Online – 192x, Easy trip planners – 54.5x) on FY23 earning basis. This indicates a potential for business improvement on the back of industry tailwinds, brand recall and business scalability, resulting in the expansion of profitability. Thus, Anand Rathi recommends an "SUBSCRIBE – long term" rating for the IPO.

Canara Bank Securities has also given the public issue a 'subscribe' tag, saying, "We recommend SUBSCRIBE for long-term investment because of its leadership in market share in the online travel segment, a major shift of trends of offline booking to online booking, and adding new routes across so as to increase connectivity."
