ixigo IPO Review

Mehta Equities Review:
Rajan Shinde, a Research Analyst at Mehta Equities, recommends subscribing to the ixigo IPO, noting the company’s strong revenue growth in FY2022 and FY2023 (180% and 32.1% respectively) and a turnaround in net profit. The IPO is priced at a P/E of 41.12x at the upper price band of ₹93, which seems fair given the near-term growth potential. However, the high proportion of OFS and lower founder holding might be concerns for new investors. He advises that only those willing to take on some risk should subscribe for long-term gains.

Anand Rathi Review:
Anand Rathi also recommends subscribing for the long term, citing ixigo’s strong market presence in rail bookings and its growth potential in the travel sector. The company’s valuation at P/E of 154x and market-cap/sales ratio of 7.2x after the issue compares favourably with its peers. With industry growth and ixigo’s established brand, there’s room for profitability improvement.

Canara Bank Securities Review:
Canara Bank Securities suggests a long-term subscription due to ixigo’s leading market share in the online travel segment, the shift from offline to online bookings, and the addition of new routes to increase connectivity.

Overall, ixigo’s IPO has attracted significant attention from investors, with strong subscription numbers and stable grey market premium suggesting positive market sentiment. Analysts generally recommend subscribing, particularly for long-term investors who are comfortable with some risk.
