Tracxn Technologies IPO: Should you Subscribe?
Brokerage firms are mixed over the issue. A few have suggested avoiding the issue citing poor financials, pricey valuations and the fact the IPO is an OFS. However, a few analysts have suggested bidding for the issue citing growth prospects for it.
Hem Securities said that the company is bringing the issue at a P/S multiple of 14x on an FY22 basis. The company is a leading global provider of differentiated private market data and intelligence and has a diverse, longstanding and growing global customer base.
The company with its scalable and secure technology platform conceptualized and developed in-house has significant cost advantages from India-based operations along with experienced promoters, board of directors and senior management team, backed by marque investors, it added with a subscribe rating on the issue, it added.
However, Choice Broking said that Tracxn’s valuations seem to be stretched for a loss-making operation. Considering the high attrition rate in the IT-enabled sector and the already double-digit attrition level of Tracxn, the brokerage is cautiously optimistic about the company’s efforts in bringing down employee costs.
“Also full exit by PE investors raises the concerns on the long-term potential growth outlook,” the brokerage said while suggesting to avoid the issue.
