TBO Tek IPO Review

Indsec Securities

The brokerage claims that the TBO Tek IPO is valued at 52.8x TTM P/B and 7.7x FY23 P/S at the upper price band on a post-issue basis. The brokerage feels there is upside potential and that the issue is priced properly. RateGain Travel Technologies, its closest competitor, is valued at 8.9x TTM P/S and 61.1x TTM P/E. Because of the scale that it can handle through its platform and the addition of supplementary business lines that meet the demands of suppliers and buyers, the brokerage has a "Subscribe" rating on the firm. TBO Tek is well-positioned to handle the extremely fragmented market environment and meet new needs with tech-based learnings, as the travel and tourism market is predicted to grow at an 8.2% CAGR between FY23 and FY27.

Canara Bank Securities Ltd

According to the brokerage firm, the company is valued at 64.74x P/E for FY2023; this price seems reasonable given the lack of domestically listed competitors for direct comparison and the company's expected pivotal position in profiting from the growing penetration in the travel industry.

On the other hand, Yatra Online and Easy Trip Planners are the company's stated industry competitors. Easy Trip Planners provides a broad range of travel-related goods and services under the main brand, "Ease My Trip." Yatra Online, on the other hand, specialises on offering thorough information, specifics about prices, availability, and booking options to both domestic and foreign clients. Because of the growing level of competition, the brokerage advises subscribing to the issue in order to benefit from listing profits.
