So, if we go by the market observers' views, the expected listing of the Zomato IPO in the grey market is around 81 to 85, which is around 12 per cent higher from Zomato IPO price of 72 to 76.

Speaking on what Zomato IPO GMP reflects Avinash Gorakshkar, Head of Research at Profitmart Securities said, "GMP of an IPO is an unofficial data that bidders are taking these days as cue for the listing gains or may say success or failure of an IPO. Bidders look a the GMP of an IPO and then add it with the issue price and on the basis of that they make a prediction about the expected listing price of the IPO. But, in my view, one should look at the financials of the company for making any decision in regard to IPO subscription." Gorakshkar said that financials of Zomato is quite strong and it may witness huge jump in business post-Covid as it has limited competitor in its business.

Highlighting the fundamentals of Zomato IPO Saurabh Joshi, Research Analyst at Marwadi Shares and Finance Limited said, "The company is going to list at a P/S (Price to Sales) multiple of 29.9 based on its FY21 sales with a market cap of 5,96,234 million. As there are no listed peers in India, so valuations cannot be compared on a relative basis. We recommend to subscribe this IPO as the company is one of the leading food service platforms in India having recognized consumer brand equity and is well placed to capitalize on the large market opportunity available in India."

Asked about the listing gains one can expect from Zomato IPO Avinash Gorakshkar of Profitmart Securities said, “One can expect 10-15 per cent listing gains from the IPO as its business model reflects rise in volume as the company has limited competitor once the market comes out of the Covid-19 fear."
