There are few key takeaways from the financials of Zaggle Prepaid Ocean Services Ltd which can be enumerated as under

  1. In the last 2 years, the revenues growth has been robust showing the potential that this particular segment has. However, this is a long gestation type of business as is evident from the consistent losses and the negative net worth till the previous year. That makes it a relatively risky proposition.
  2. The net margins or the return on assets are not really relevant as the company is loss making and the net worth of the company is negative; till the previous year FY22. Hence, investors have to take a view purely based on the latest year data, since that is the only year with profits in the book.
  3. The company has maintained a very aggressively rate of sweating assets as is evident from the asset turnover ratio. It has consistently been around an average of 3X. There is a lot of front ending of costs, especially, the latest year profits have been sharply hit by more than doubling of cost of points redemption and gift cards. Also, there has been a sharp spike in the trade receivables in the latest year.


While pricing of the IPO does matter here, there is not much of a valuation play that one can assess due to just one year of profit track record on the stock. Also, the net worth of the company was negative till the previous year FY22 and has only turned to positive this year, so the ROE can look a little too overstated. At an industry level, this is a low risk but scalable business. The traction is great on the top line but there is no clarity on when there will be traction on the bottom line. For investors, it has to be a bet on the future of the business model. That would mean; a longer waiting period and higher risk appetite.
