Despite the pandemic, the company saw limited dent on profitability or on its top line. Over the 3 years, MapmyIndia has seen its EBITDA margins and net margins scale up sharply. The business model based on license fees and subscription revenues is less cyclical in nature.

C.E. Info Systems Ltd (MapmyIndia) is expected to have a listing market cap of Rs.5,500 crore assigning a P/E ratio 35 times earnings. That is a reasonable valuation for a company that has a stable revenue model, strong entry barriers and RONW in excess of 16%. This likely to be positive for future growth.

Investment Perspective for C.E. Info Systems Ltd (MapmyIndia) IPO

Here is what investors must consider before investing in the C.E. Info Systems Ltd (MapmyIndia) IPO.

a) The company has over 500 active customers on its platform and has serviced over 2,000 customers over the last many years of its existence.

b) The company has put up entry barriers in the form of a massive database of locational photographs as well as its proprietary software.

c) The company has adopted a SAAS model for business which makes the entire model scalable at limited cost, allowing easy future growth with limited friction.

d) The market for digital maps is estimated to grow at 15.5% CAGR over the next 5 years and that opens up a huge window of opportunity for the company.

e) The company derives 35% to 40% of its revenues from its global app MAPPLS. This de-risks the business from India-specific factors.

Geospatial data has been opened up only recently by the government in a big way. However, the data is sensitive and national security interests could trigger change in policy at any point. That is a risk.
