Tracxn Technologies IPO: Should you Subscribe?
Swastika Investmart said, “Tracxn would find it difficult to substantially grow its client base and top line in the coming years, it said. Finally, “the exorbitant valuation of price to sales of ~12.5 (based on FY22 numbers and upper band price) makes it very difficult to recommend this issue. Thus we have assigned avoid rating for this issue.”
