Yatra Online IPO Review
Analysts believe being one of the key players, Yatra Online is well-positioned to capture a significant share of growth in the tourism industry in India, owing to its longstanding relationship with both B2B and B2C customers.
“This enables the company to target India's most frequent and high-spending travellers and educated urban consumers. With the growth in the tourism industry, we expect the online travel market share (OTA) to increase faster than captive players, improving the company's profitability. With the company posting profits in FY23 and strong revenue growth in the past, we remain positive on the company from a medium to long-term perspective," said BP Equities.
It has recommended an ‘Subscribe’ rating to the Yatra IPO.
