The initial public offering (IPO) of Rs 1,335 crore was publicly subscribed 17.41 times during its stake sale from Dec 7 to Dec 9. Brokerage firms have confirmed that the company is highly dependent on the tourism and hospitality industry for its revenue and the industry is expected to grow at a positive compound annual growth rate in the coming years. However, analysts said the region will continue to experience some headwinds in the near term due to the impact of Covid-19.

In its IPO note, Kotak Securities said the third-party travel and hospitality technology was estimated at Rs 591 crore in the market in 2021, and grew to an estimated Rs 1,147 crore in 2025 at a compound annual growth rate of 18%.
