Financials

For the period between FY17 and FY19, the company's revenue recorded CAGR of around 18.21 per cent and was at Rs. 548.38 crore for FY19. Substantially, all of the revenue from operations was earned through the sale of subscription packages, and a minor portion of total revenue was earned through advertising, facilitation of payment and sale of RFQ credits.

The EBITDA in the same period turned black from red. For FY17, the company reported negative EBITDA of Rs. 61 crore that grew to Rs. 14.3 crore at the end of FY19. The company's reported profit for FY19 was Rs. 12.6 crore. It had reported a loss of Rs. 64.34 crore in FY17.

The company's performance seems to be improving in the last few years and is witnessing strong growth. One of the reasons for such growth is in the past three years; the company has experienced significant growth in the number of suppliers and buyers on IndiaMART. The number of Indian supplier storefronts has increased from 2.3 million at the end of FY16 to 5.6 million at the end of FY19. The number of paying subscriptions suppliers and buyers has also witnessed similar growth.

This performance has led to turning its net worth positive during the last financial year. As at March 31, 2019, company had a positive net worth of Rs 159.9 crore. The networth of the company for at March 31, 2017 and 2018, was negative to the tune of Rs. 390.0 crore and Rs. 321.3 crore. The negative net worth as at March 31, 2017 and 2018 was primarily attributable to company's operating losses and net loss / (gain) on financial assets and liabilities designated at fair value through profit or loss (FVTPL) in the respective fiscal / period.

Valuation and recommendation

At the higher price band of Rs. 973, the offer is demanding market cap to sales (FY19) of 5.07 times, which seems to be on the higher side even on absolute terms. However, if we compare it with a listed player like Just Dial, which is available at market cap to sales of 4.9x, the issue seems to be priced expensively. In terms of PE, the offer is made at around 58 times after adjusting its EPS for its fair value through P&L (FTPVL). Compare this with Just Dial a much larger company available at PE of 24x.

Although the company's finances are improving, the price at which the company is offering its issue looks expensive.

*40 or lower – Avoid Investment, 41 to 45 – Risky, 46 to 50 – Invest with limited exposure, 51 to 55 – Investment recommended, 56 & above – Excellent Investment
