As per market observers, Nykaa shares are available at a strong premium (GMP) of 615 in the grey market today. The company's shares are expected to list on leading stock exchanges NSE and BSE on November 11. 

“Nykaa is one of the very few profitable Unicorns in India and we believe that the company is well positioned to benefit from the exponential growth in the online beauty and fashion retailing business over the next decade. Hence we believe that that the valuations are justified and hence we recommend SUBSCRIBE to the issue," said brokerage house Angel One in an IPO note.

The IPO of FSN E-Commerce Ventures, which runs online marketplace for beauty and wellness products Nykaa, comprises fresh issue of equity shares worth 630 crore and an offer for sale (OFS) of 41,972,660 equity shares by promoter and existing shareholders.

“The rise of digital-only brands and the direct-to-customer online channel has introduced innovative and effective ways for brands to sell. Local emerging brands have also witnessed increased popularity and following in recent times. Considering the future prospect for the company and it being placed at a sweet spot as the first mover advantage we assign “Subscribe-Long Term" Rating to this IPO," said brokerage house Anand Rathi.

"Large segment for a vertical commerce play for beauty and lifestyle.

This would help in significantly improving margins. The issue will be oversubscribed in our opinion and we recommend subscribing to the issue," said Neha Khanna, Director, ValPro.
