Paytm IPO Review

No doubt this company is a mega player in the digital ecosystem segment and has a lion share, but its top line has remained almost static for the last three fiscals and has been incurring losses for all these years and may remain in red in the near term too as per statements on page 38/39 of RHP. It has huge carried forward losses and negative earnings. Thanks to premiums collected for placements that have helped this company to post positive NAV. Issue pricing is with a negative P/E. Its market cap of Rs. 1.39+ lakh cr. raises eyebrows. However, considering madness seen for Unicorn and high tech sector companies in the recent past is perhaps indicating changed sentiment for investment parameters. On all fronts, this issue is exorbitantly priced discounting all near term positives. Of late many new entrants have entered this space and raised a threat. Hence cash surplus/risk seekers only may consider an investment with a long term perspective, others can ignore it. Read detail review...

Their reporting seems over-zealous and desperate to me.
> Use (abuse) of multiple operating metrics and non-GAAP metrics to demonstrate yoy, qoq etc traction. Agreed that GAAP metrics may not do justice to Internet era businesses but if they can''t explain it simply then I guess there is simply nothing to explain
> Reporting Adjusted EBITDA excluding ESOP expenses is meaningless. If Paytm price recovers, I expect ESOP expenses to increase
> Not sure why Software, Cloud and Data center expenses are not part of Total Direct Expenses (given that Could & Commerce revenue exists)
> All Indirect Expenses have grown at nearly the same rate as Revenue
> Overall Contribution Profit has improved significantly but EBITDA loss has increased at the same rate qoq as has revenue and with such high increase in expenses, the path to even an EBITDA breakeven seems long and winding!

In continuation of my post No. 603, I would like to read the results as a "bloomer ". 28% increase in EBITA loss q-o-q will be hard for the market to digest irrespective of the increase in revenue, unless I am missing something.

For the first time since its listing, I''m seeing way more Bid quantity than Sell quantity on NSE on a day when it almost hit LC again. Interesting turn of events!

Though at this price and any price well south of the current price, it remains a strong AVOID for me! Many of us are already carrying exposure to it via our MF investments though, unfortunately!

@monster zero There is no need to spread bad news about the company when the company itself is bad and objectiveless 🤣🤣
But i do agree with the price manipulation.....MFs buying is basically damage control and they''ll dump it in future on retailers who expect the stock to do better.

If Paytm can show profits tomorrow, sure to cross IPO price in the immediate future, if losses are reduced considerably qoq- expect around 2000 but, what if it is a bloomer???? Just curiosity....

Hi All
I urge investors to exit the Paytm at earliest.
With the existing fundamentals My valuation model predicts Paytm at 70cr mkt cap for next 1year.
So the stock price can go to Rs:800 per share.
The valuation model works only if current fundamentals remains same.

@ Sagar dasa
First understand what means by ''fundamental '' of a share.
Then understand what is market cap.
You are the first man in the world who has been able to develop a valuation model on the basis of fundamental and market cap.
Congratulation for this success 😅😅😅

it will be good for many retailers who are still holding in paytm if issue price comes in this year but it will be too early to judge this. let the price stabilize above 1700 for some days, that will be a good sign if that happens.
Many retailers sold at big loss in initial 2 days due to great fear sentiment created on each forum/news.
