One97 Communications launched Paytm in 2009, as a “mobile-first” digital payments platform to enable cashless payments for Indians; giving them the power to make payments from their mobile phones. Starting with bill payments and mobile top-ups as the first use cases, and Paytm Wallet as the first Paytm Payment Instrument, they have built the largest payments platform in India based on the number of consumers, number of merchants, number of transactions and revenue as of March 31, 2021. It has an overall mobile payments transaction volume market share of approximately 40%, and wallet payments transaction market share of 65% – 70% in India as of FY21, according to RedSeer. No doubt the company is a mega player in the digital ecosystem segment, but it has been incurring losses for last three financial years and may remain in red in the near term too as per RHP. At the higher price band of Rs 2150, the offer is priced at a P/BV of 20.67 based on its NAV of Rs. 104 as of June 30, 2021. We recommend Listing Gain to the IPO considering the risk factors.
