Zomato IPO opens for subscription today: Should you place an order?

Zomato IPO: As it is the first startup in the Indian food aggregator space to be listed on the bourses, the enthusiasm among the investors is tremendous, said Parvati Rai of KR Choksey.

The Rs 9,375-crore IPO of Zomato, one of the leading food services platforms in India, has received a 'subscribe' rating from many analysts given the investors' appetite and interest in the listing of a new business, unique status in the food delivery space, huge growth potential in tier-II and tier-III cities and a strong network of restaurants.

Zomato will be the first food delivery aggregator startup to get listed on the bourses.

While assigning a subscribe rating to the issue, all the analysts Moneycontrol spoke to said the valuations look expensive compared to global peers. The company's loss-making status is a concern, they added.

Zomato opens its biggest public offer in last sixteen months, after SBI Card, for subscription on July 14, with a price band at Rs 72-76 per equity share.

It has already mobilised Rs 4,196.51 crore from 186 anchor investors on July 13, a day before the issue opening. And, the rest of the money will be raised in the next three days till July 16, via public offer.

The offer comprises a fresh issue of Rs 9,000 crore and an offer for sale of Rs 375 crore by Info Edge, the largest shareholder in the company. The net proceeds from the fresh issue will be utilized towards funding organic and inorganic growth initiatives (Rs 6,750 crore); and general corporate purposes.

"The IPO is valued at price-to-sales of 28.6-29.9 times FY21 revenues of Rs 1,993 crore, which is at a premium to other comparable global food delivery companies. While the Zomato IPO may seem expensive based on FY21 numbers, we believe that FY21 was an aberration as business was impacted significantly due to the first Covid wave and the ensuing lockdowns," said Jyoti Roy, DVP- Equity Strategist at Angel Broking.

Post a 23.5 percent de-growth in revenues in FY21 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, growth is expected to pick up sharply from FY22, Roy feels. Moreover, Zomato has been able to reduce its losses in FY21 despite a de-growth in the topline.

Jyoti Roy expects losses to reduce further over the next couple of years due to a rebound in growth and improving unit economics. "Given the strong delivery network, high barriers to entry, expected turnaround, and significant growth opportunities in tier-II and tier-III cities, we believe that Zomato will command a premium to global peers and hence have a 'subscribe' recommendation on the IPO," he said.

Zomato reported a consolidated loss for the financial year ended March FY21 at Rs 816.43 crore compared to a loss of Rs 2,385.6 crore in FY20. Revenue from operations in the same period declined to Rs 1,993.78 crore from Rs 2,604.7 crore largely due to the impact of Covid-19.

Varun Singh and Kuber Chauhan of IDBI Capital also expect the company's losses to come down, going forward, driven by higher delivery charges (customers must pay for convenience) and reduction in competitive intensity (induced by consolidation).

"Valuation looks expensive from the near-term point of view (6 times FY21 gross order value versus 1-3 times multiple for global competitors), but given the non-linear growth opportunity, we believe it's better to stay invested in such companies," said the brokerage which recommended subscribe.

Analysts largely feel the traditional valuations metrics like price-to-earnings will not be the right measures to value such companies.

"A better way to value such high growth companies will be on Price to sales basis and compared with other global food delivery companies which are expected to witness similar growth trajectory over the next few years like DoorDash, Deliver Hero, etc," said Jyoti Roy.

As per Gaurav Garg of CapitalVia Global Research, customer acquisition costs, valuation, revenue, and competition from other players (in this example, Amazon and Swiggy) are a few aspects to consider for a tech-based firm.

Zomato is a technology-first organization leveraging artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep data science to continuously drive innovations on its platform for its customers, delivery partners, and restaurant partners. The company runs an integrated product, design, engineering, and data science team without boundaries to boost collaboration and speed of output.

Zomato, having a strong brand name and recall across large and small Indian cities, has two core B2C offerings, Food delivery and Dining-out in addition to the B2B offering Hyper pure. Another important part of the business is Zomato Pro, which is the customer loyalty program and encompasses both food delivery and dining-out.

As of March 31, 2021, Zomato was present in 525 cities in India, with 3,89,932 active restaurant listings along with a presence in 23 countries outside India.

Listing Gains

Few analysts are recommending the issue only for listing gains given its first-mover advantage in the food delivery space, and tremendous enthusiasm among investors about this IPO.

"Zomato with first-mover advantage is placed in a sweet spot as the online food delivery market is at the cusp of evolution. It enjoys a couple of moats and with the economics of scale started playing out, the losses have reduced substantially. However, predicting the growth trajectory at this juncture is a little tricky for the next few years," said Sneha Poddar of Motilal Oswal.

She further said, "Though, valuing such early-stage businesses on plain vanilla financial matrix might not give the right picture and may look distorted. Investors with a high-risk appetite can subscribe for listing gains given fancy for unique and first-of-its-kind listing in the food delivery business."

As it is the first start-up in the Indian Food Aggregator space to be listed on the bourses, the enthusiasm among the investors about the IPO is tremendous, and also, the company has a unique status of a UNICORN in the Indian Food Delivery space, said Parvati Rai of KR Choksey.

"From the valuation perspective, we are not very comfortable with the sky-high valuation that the IPO is valued at. As a result, we recommend our investors to 'subscribe' to the issue only for listing gains," she added.

Zomato enjoys the first-mover advantage and has built a strong brand name and recall across India. Its mobile application is the most downloaded food and drinks app in each of the last 3 fiscal years (as per RedSeer). During FY21, 32.1 million average MAU (monthly active users) visited Zomato's platform, of which 6.8 million MTU (monthly transacting users) placed transactions.

As per RedSeer, Zomato has consistently gained market share over the last four years to become the category leader in India in terms of GOV (gross order value).

Zomato operates in a duopoly market and has created strong entry barriers with the widespread network. It operates in a highly underpenetrated market where of the total food consumption in India, only 8-9 percent is from restaurants, of which only 8 percent is online food delivery. This is highly underpenetrated when compared it with bigwigs like US/ China where restaurant food/online food delivery matrix stands at 40-50 percent each. As per RedSeer, the Food Services market in India is expected to grow at 9 percent CAGR over CY19-25. Thus "the sector provides a huge opportunity for Zomato to grow," said Sneha Poddar of Motilal Oswal.

Among other analysts, Meet Jain of LKP Securities, Shikhar Jain of Anand Rathi, Himanshu Nayyar of Yes Securities, and Saurabh Joshi & Ridhima Goya of Marwadi Financial Services also assigned 'subscribe' rating to the issue, while Rajnath Yadav of Choice Broking assigned a 'subscribe with caution' rating for the issue.

"The issue seems to be overpriced at the higher end of the price band. The company has certain positivities like asset light scalable business model, expanded target market post the pandemic, first-mover advantage in the food delivery business, etc. But its operations in almost duopoly market may attract regulatory actions, which would be negative for the company," Yadav explained

He further explained, "Also its operations are generating heavy losses, albeit some improvements in FY21, which we believe is not sustainable once socialization normalizes post-pandemic. Thus considering the above observations, we feel that this IPO is not for the retail investors, but investors with higher risk appetite with long term investment horizon can apply."

CEA Subramanian hints that govt is unlikely to cut fuel taxes: Report

In June, CPI-based inflation rose 6.26 percent, slightly lower than 6.30 percent in May.

Chief Economic Adviser (CEA) Krishnamurthy Subramanian hinted that the government is unlikely to cut fuel taxes, though petrol and diesel rates are a record high.

"When we look at it from the inflation perspective, what is the contribution (of petrol and diesel) to inflation is something we have to keep in mind. So we should speak based on data on all these aspects," he told Mint, when asked if cut in fuel taxes is on the cards.

Subramanian said food inflation is a bigger concern. He said that reducing fuel taxes may not have a significant impact on retail inflation, since the weightage in the index is low.

"If you look at the last 6-7 years, anywhere between 35-60 percent of contribution to retail inflation comes from food inflation," he said as quoted by the publication.

"Weightage of petrol and diesel in CPI (Consumer Price Index) is less than 3 percent while weightage of food is about 50 percent. Even if you consider second-round effects (of the fuel price hike), the weightage is about 5 percent. So if you do an analysis, it becomes very clear that the contribution is not that large."Subramanian also said rising crude oil prices are reflecting in overall inflation.

In June, CPI-based inflation rose 6.26 percent, slightly lower than 6.30 percent in May. Food inflation rose slightly to 5.15 percent in June, while inflation in the 'fuel and light' sub-group increased to 12.7 percent.
