  • Majority of revenues are derived from B2B and B2B2C enterprise customers. The revenue model is to charge the customers fees per period on per vehicle, per asset, per transaction, per use case or per user basis, as applicable. Revenue arrangements with automotive OEMs typically envisage payments on a per vehicle basis for the contract period and top-up payments for internet services as subscription charges. For C&E customers, payments are typically received on a per geospatial transaction (or API query) basis, i.e. when the feature requiring a geospatial element is used by an end consumer, for instance, a search result for the nearest service centre or merchant.
  • When the geospatial queries are not specified or known, the customers are charged on a fixed price per term on a per use case basis. For Move IoT devices, payments are typically received for the sale of devices and subscription fees which are periodic in nature. Accordingly, such payments take the form of subscription fees, royalties or annuities for licenses and usage rights to our proprietary digital MaaS, PaaS and SaaS offerings.

Financial Review of MapmyIndia

Revenue from operations comprises the following: (i) revenue from sale of IoT products; and (ii) sale of map data and software (combined) through royalty, annuity, subscription and software services. The total revenues for H1FY22 were Rs 122.58 crore and the Issuer posted profits of Rs 46.77 crore for the same period which is a huge increase (Rs 17.86 in H1FY21, previous corresponding quarter)

The total revenues increased by 17% in FY21 to Rs 192.27 crore from Rs 163.48 crore in FY20. But it should be noted that this was derived from an increase in other income by 168% which was again offset by decrease in revenues by 37% from sale of IoT products due to the pandemic. During the same period, revenue from sale of map data and software increased by 9%. PAT increased to Rs 59.43 crore in FY21 against Rs 23.20 crore in FY20 due to fall in employee related expenses and other expenses. Profitability margins have been strong for all the last three fiscals.

Total revenues for FY20 increased slightly to Rs 163.48 crore from Rs 163.33 crore. During FY20, revenues from sale of IoT products reduced by 42% and revenues from map data and software rose by 28% when compared to FY19. PAT reduced to Rs 23.20 crore in FY20 against Rs 33.57 crore in FY19.

Debt is negligible and return on net worth is 11.52%, 16.60%, 7.79% and 11.77% for H1FY22, FY21, FY20 and FY19 respectively.

The Issue Snapshot

MapmyIndia IPO opens on 9th Dec amounting to Rs 1040 crore (100% OFS) with price band of Rs 1000-1033 per share. Minimum application amount is Rs 14462 and the offer closes on 13th Dec. Retail quota is 35% and is expected to list on 21st Dec 2021.

Conclusion and Investment Strategy

As governments and businesses across the globe are making efforts to digitize their operations, the choice of map service partners is expected to mainly depend on factors like the capability of map service providers to offer localized, highly focused and updated map data. The selection of the right map solution also depends on the comprehensiveness offered by the solution provider.

Although, the map services industry is largely dominated by several global players like Google and TomTom. Companies like MapmyIndia also scores well on several aspects as it has a comprehensive set of offerings ranging from digital maps, map-based navigation systems, relevant APIs and SDKs, map integration capabilities and map data analytical capabilities which are increasingly becoming critical for businesses who want to elevate their map data for better business operations and to provide seamless experience to their customers.

MapmyIndia offers a comprehensive, detailed, and accurate digital map database for India, and the widest range of location-powered software and IoT- enabled technologies. The Issuer has emerged as a niche player in India and is capitalizing on an early mover advantage. The negatives of the Issuer are that its purely an offer for sale, and concern over its sustainability of margins in the future. The IPO has a strong GMP as of today 8th Nov 2021 though it is subject to change as per the market conditions. Hence considering all the above factors one may subscribe to the Issue.
