With an EPS of 1.39 as of 31st March 2021, the Issue is priced 809 times at the upper price band of Rs 1125 per share. The Issue appears to be highly overvalued. The market cap of the IPO amounts to Rs 53000 crore. Price to book value is 72.72 at NAV of Rs 15.47 as of 31st Mar 2021.

There are no listed peers of the company as per the RHP. In the BPC Market and Fashion Market in India, Nykaa competes with organized multi-brand and exclusive retailers, unorganized merchants, horizontal online platforms like Amazon, Flipkart, and Paytm Mall among others, and vertical online platforms such as Myntra, Purplle, and Myglamm among others.

Conclusion and Investment Strategy

India would continue to grow across the digital use-case funnel, as there is significant headroom for growth in both BPC and fashion segments. This growth is expected to be driven by the affordability of the internet, increased adoption from Tier 2+ cities, the rising popularity of social media, competitively priced online offerings, and the adoption of online payment platforms.

In unlisted space and among the online channels it faces competition from Amazon, Flipkart, and Myntra among others. The financial performance of the company shows a growing trend in its revenues and profitability margins. Investors should also consider that e-commerce companies have to spend considerably in marketing to create its space. Looking at the frenzy in the market and the strong grey market premiums, one may invest in the IPO for listing gains. Listing gains are affected by the market conditions prevailing at the time of listing.
