Key points for Rategain travel technologies

IPO Key Points

  • Strengths

    1. The company has a diverse customer base and a good relationship with them. The revenue from ten major customer groups in FY19, FY20 and FY21 was Rs.110.27 crore, Rs.176.6 crore and Rs.92.81 crore, respectively
    2. A very diverse and comprehensive portfolio which focuses on revenue maximization
    3. The management team is very experienced and are experts in their fields. The company also focuses on employee welfare

  • Risks

    1. Almost all of the revenue generated is obtained from the hospitality and travel industry. If there are any more adverse impacts of the pandemic on these industries, like a third wave, then this may adversely affect the company’s financials and business.
    2. The business wholly depends on the clients renewing their contracts. If for some reason the clients do not renew their contracts, it may affect the long term business operations of the company.
    3. Since SaaS is a new and evolving market, if there is decline in the growth or if the growth is not according to the estimate, it may prove to be a hindrance in business activities.
