YATRA Online Limited IPO Risk factors:

  • The Indian travel industry is highly competitive. Company’s success depends upon its ability to compete effectively against numerous established and emerging competitors, including other online travel agencies, or OTAs, traditional offline travel companies, travel research companies, payment wallets, search engines, and meta-search companies, both in India and abroad, such as MakeMyTrip Limited, Cleartrip Private Limited, Easy Trip Planner Limited, Thomas Cook India Limited, FCM Travel Solutions India Private Limited, GBT India Private Limited, CWT India Private Limited, Le Travenues Technology Private Limited, TripAdvisor and Trivago and in each case including their affiliated and group entities.

  • YATRA Online Limited is dependent on the airline ticketing business, which generates a significant percentage of its revenues and is derived from a small number of airline suppliers in India. If these airlines increasingly engage directly with customers or other similar online travel agencies, as applicable, or are unable to pay the company in a timely manner or at all, whether due to the deterioration of their financial position, an economic downturn, internal conflicts or any other reason, the company’s business, financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and prospects could be materially and adversely affected.

  • Air India has moved to a single GDS service provider platform for its domestic inventory; there can be no assurance that other airline suppliers will not institute similar measures

  • Yatra Online, Inc. delivered to Ebix Inc. (“Ebix”) the notice of termination of the merger agreement with Ebix and filed litigation in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware based upon Ebix’s breaches of the merger agreement and an ancillary extension agreement. In addition, Yatra Online, Inc. also sued Ebix for fraud and sued Ebix’s consortium of lenders for tortious interference with contractual relations. The termination of the merger with Ebix Inc. and related legal proceedings may materially and adversely affect our results of operations.

  • YATRA Online Limited has incurred losses in the past and may incur losses in the future. The ability to operate profitably depends upon a number of factors, some of which are beyond its control.

  • YOL is dependent on its airline ticketing business, which generates a significant percentage of its revenues and is derived from a small number of airline suppliers in India.

  • YOL has had restated losses in the past.

YATRA Online Limited IPO Key Highlights:

  • YOL reported total income/net profit – (loss) of Rs. 143.62 crore/Rs. – (118.86 crore) in FY21, Rs. 218.81 crore/Rs. – (30.79 crore) in FY22, and Rs. 397.47 crore/Rs. 7.63 crore in FY23.

  • YOL has recorded an average EPS of Rs. – (2.42) and an average RoNW of – (23.96%) during the past three fiscal years.

  • The company recorded PAT margins of – (94.75) % (FY21), – (15.54) % (FY22), and 2.01% (FY23) for the previous three fiscal years.

YATRA Online Limited IPO Outlook:

Yatra Online Ltd. (YOL) is an online travel agency that spans the entire value chain of travel and hospitality covering B2C and B2B segments. Though the company has been in losses in the past, it finally became profitable in the FY23. Thanks to the security premiums that were received, the company was able to report a positive NAV. While some services saw a slight improvement, it saw a dramatic fall in its margins for air tickets, hotels, and packages. It has the highest attrition rates during the periods that have been documented, which is cause for worry. The major issue with the IPO is the value of the share which is set to highly overpriced at the PE ratio of 269.36X when compared to 56.53X of its peer hence we suggest to avoid this IPO.
