Recommendation on Zomato IPO:

Review and Recommendation of Zomato IPO by IZ team is 6/10. PROS: 1. It is a new-age company and first of its kind business to be listed on the bourses. The company with no competitor in the market in the past have given excellent returns. 2. The company has brand and they will utilize the power of brand to venture into other products. For example, they are now venturing into grocery business. Similarly, more such businesses can be opened up which will lead to multiple revenue generating options for Zomato. 3. Food delivery business is still at nascent stage in India and lot of growth opportunity available for the company. CONS: 1. The valuation looks very steep as compared to other player in the global markets. 2. Threat from offline to online application such as Dotpe which are giving option for restaurants owners to setup their own online shops and help save on heavy commission which is currently charged by Zomato and Swiggy to the tune of 20%. 3. Amazon is also trying to enter into the food delivery space which will make market more competitive. 4. The company is in loss and very difficult to predict when they will come up in profit.
