To invest or not to invest?

Amazing to see companies like Zomato choosing to list in India! While the valuation may seem expensive relative to existing tech companies on the Indian (and global) exchanges, I think there’s really no precedent for a company like Zomato – the YoY revenue growth and traction show no signs of slowing down for at least a few more years, and margins are only going to improve with greater scale. This is an incredible milestone for the Indian startup ecosystem as a whole!

To buy shares of a company, 2 key aspects should be kept in mind:

·         Study & understand the business model

·         seize out the evaluation of the profit being made by the company

Zomato an online restaurant aggregator and an online food delivery application has been under loss every year which is making people wonder if they should take a chance? Should we buy the shares then? Zomato is a largely growing food delivery business and has more than 100million users worldwide, it can take off in no time. Initially Zomato’s original name was foodiebay until Info Edge funded it. They further went on to twist the tomato, replacing it with Zomato. The first ever funding that Zomato received was from Info Edge itself, a company that has been investing in Zomato frequently, Info Edge which is also the parent company of Naukri.com funded Zomato with a whopping 1 Million dollar amount and has majority shares in Zomato. Your investment in Zomato would have an effect on companies like info edge and Fitso. Zomato had witnessed huge drawbacks and losses during the pandemic in the year 2020, however they saw a sudden boom in the number of orders rising at a rapid pace. In future companies like Tatva Chintan Pharma, Glenmark lifesciences and many other companies will open their IPO.

Info Edge & their share price is currently Rs 5380 and a month back it was Rs 4732 from 10th June till today their growth has been ecstatic because of Zomato.

Fitso is another start-up, involved in sports memberships and Zomato heavily invested in Fitso, Zomato leaving no stone unturned utilizing every opportunity to invest even after being in loss

Zomato IPO has been so extensively hyped and talked about, which indicates that people have been willing to be pay more as well which will bring a profitable return too.

It’s a risk worth taking, since years, start-ups have wanted to enter the field of IPO and have failed, however Zomato can take it to another level, Zomato has a sustainable networking for food delivery in India and has immense growth potential. Zomato made a massive recovery in the year 2021, making up for the losses in 2020 when the Chinese Virus had hit India. However Zomato has competition as well like Amazon who will soon be entering the food delivery arena will be a big player in future.
