Valuation and Recommendation:

Over FY13- FY17 the company sales have grown at a CAGR of 11.6%, however, Ebitda has grown at a CAGR of 38.6%. EBITDA in FY17 was higher on account of restructuring steps taken by the company, improving the overall CAGR for the period mentioned above. Ebitda margins in FY17 improved drastically by 1758 bps to 20.2% from 2.6% in FY16. In Q1FY18, Ebitda margins came in at 23.3%, which indicates margins are going to be sustainable going ahead. There was a litigation filed against the company for which the company had to pay a sum of USD $8,000,000 in full settlement which was leading to loss to the company. As per the management, this litigation has been factored in the P&L. Adjusting to this from FY13- FY17 PAT margins has grown at a CAGR of 40.8%. Being an internet user company the capex requirement by the company is less. Other than this, Ebitda to Cash flow from operations is around 85% indicating lower working capital requirement by the company. Going forward, shift from unorganized to organized sector and already having high database we expect the company to maintain its No1 Position even going ahead. Other than this, with increase in internet penetration & easy availability of sites we expect the number of visitors to increase going ahead and in turn fuel in growth to the company. Apart from this, the company’s new marriage services business (currently loss making) is likely to gain traction with cross selling opportunity available .On the valuation front, at the given upper price band of issue of Rs 985, is offered at PE of 38x, EV /EBITDA of 27.6x and EV/Sales of 6.4x for Q1FY18E annualized EPS, EBITDA and sales respectively which looks attractive considering its leadership position and as compared to its peer. We recommend subscribing to the issue.
