Total Assets 






Total Revenue 






Profit After Tax 








As per the F&S report, the company is India’s leading provider of advanced digital maps, geospatial software and location-based IoT technologies. Having pioneered digital mapping in India in 1995, it has earned its market leadership position in this industry and built a strong moat by capitalizing on its early mover advantage, developing proprietary and integrated technologies, full-stack product offerings, continuous innovation and a robust sustainable business model.   

It derives the majority of revenue from B2B and B2B2C enterprise customers. Its business model is to charge customers fees per period based on per vehicle, per asset, per transaction, per use case, per user, as applicable. These take the form of subscription fees, royalties, annuities in return for providing licenses and usage rights to its proprietary digital MaaS, PaaS and SaaS offerings. Its returns on capital employed were 50, 41, and 110 per cent, respectively for Financial Years 2019, 2020 and 2021. As per the F&S Report, the total Indian addressable market of digital maps and location-based intelligence services is expected to grow to Rs 474.9 billion in 2025 at around 15.5 per cent CAGR from 2019 to 2025.   

The net profit margins have gone up from about 20.5 per cent in FY19 to about 38.12 per cent as of September end 2021. The returns on capital employed have gone above 100 per cent. Clearly, the growth has been supernormal and the question of sustainability kicks in. Also, the P/E of the company is high at 68.54. The existing shareholders alone are offering the shares in absence of a fresh issue. And so, even though the IPO appears attractive, we advise investors to wait for a bargain and then buy the scrip. Hence, we recommend to AVOID investing in the IPO.
