10] TBO Tek IPO review: Speaking on the public issue, Tarun Singh, MD at Highbrow securities said, "TBO Tek Ltd.’s IPO, marked by a substantial Offer for Sale (OFS), presents a complex scenario for potential investors. This global travel distribution leader, set to expand following FY2023’s achievements, navigates an industry vulnerable to global uncertainties, highlighted during the pandemic and current geopolitical tensions limiting travel. Its financials reflect such volatility, suggesting a sensitivity that may not sit well with the steep valuations sought, offering limited medium-term gains for shareholders. Furthermore, the IPO's structure, heavily leaning on an OFS, and the modest proceeds from the fresh issue raise questions about its adequacy for TBO Tek’s operational scale," adding, "Despite support

from renowned underwriters, the offering lacks the compelling clarity needed for a strong investment case, prompting me to pivot to SME IPOs that might better reflect value and stability in an unpredictable market environment."

Endorsing the TBO Tek IPO with a 'subscribe' tag, Marwadi Financial Services, a reputable financial institution, provides a detailed analysis. They consider the TTM (Dec-23) / FY24-Annualized EPS of 16.80/18.93 on a post-issue basis, projecting the company to list at a P/E of 54.77x/48.59x with a market cap of Rs.99,901 mn, whereas its peer namely Rategain Travel Technologies Limited is trading at a P/E of 61.2x. They assign a “Subscribe” rating to this IPO, citing the company's capital efficient business model with a combination of sustainable growth and its reasonable valuation compared to its peers. This endorsement from a trusted source can instill confidence in potential investors.
