Check out these Delhivery IPO details to find out why it can be a good investment:
1. Affordable pricing and lot size:
The issue price band of its IPO is fixed in the range of Rs 462 to Rs 487. The Delhivery IPO date is 11-13 May 2022. Investors will have to bid for a minimum lot of 30 shares or multiple lots thereafter. So, the Delhivery IPO price band is very competitively priced.
2. Limited retail supply of shares:
Delhivery has earmarked shares worth Rs 20 crore to eligible employees at a discount of Rs 25 per share. 10% of the offered shares are available to retail investors, while 15% is meant for non-institutional investors. The low retail percentage is expected to whip up market demand. Also, 75% of the shares are available to Qualified Institutional Buyers (QIBs).
3. Good track record:
Delhivery’s first fund-raising was through Times Internet Ltd in 2012. By the end of its four series of fundings, start-up company Delhivery had a pan-India presence. It had even set up shop in Dubai. In 2019, it received funds from Japanese investor SoftBank. Beginning with Urban Touch, it has now hundreds of e-commerce clients.
4. Growth through IPO:
Delhivery has plans to finance organic and inorganic growth through its IPO offer. Acquisitions and strategic initiatives are planned as a part of the inorganic growth plans. Based on revenue growth, Delhivery is already the largest and fastest growing logistics company in India.
5. Strong market presence:
As we saw earlier, Delhivery has an impressive market presence. It has a large network of automated centres for sorting, fulfilment, returns processing, intermediate processing, and delivery. It has over 21,000 active customers across various industries.
6. Competitive edge:
Delhivery’s rapid growth is fuelled by proprietary logistics technology systems, an integrated service portfolio, and an asset-light business model. Although the company disclosed net losses, its EBITDA for ESOPs has shown a steady improvement.
