The stock fell for eight consecutive sessions until January 24. On Monday, Nykaa shares closed at 124.75 apiece down by 1.96% on BSE.

The company's share price hit a 52-week low of 120.75 on January 23, 2023 and a 52-week high of 332.30 on January 24, 2022.

In Q2FY23, the company posted a multi-fold increase in its consolidated net profit at 5 crore as compared to 1 crore in the same period a year ago.

Nykaa has fallen over 62% in last 1 year. In comparison, Zomato and Paytm have lost 55% and 43%, respectively, reported MintGenie.

The company raised 5,350 crore through initial public offering (IPO) in November 2021, with an over 82 times subscription. Meanwhile, Zomato IPO was subscribed 38 times and Paytm IPO was at 1.89 times.  

Nykaa was cheered by the market and listed at an 80% premium to its IPO price as against Zomato, which listed at 53%. Paytm, on the other hand, listed at a 9% discount.

“Companies such as Nykaa, Paytm, and Zomato have been adversely affected due to a lack of risk-on strategy in the market. Similarly, tech-driven companies in the US have also gone through a similar phase. However, we anticipate that when risk-on strategies are adopted, tech companies that have seen an erosion will see value bank occur at a lower level," Mohit Batra, Founder & CEO MarketsMojo told Mint in a recent interview.
