Paytm made a big bang debut in the stock market. The company’s $2.5 billion IPO was not just India’s largest but the largest APAC fintech IPO ever and the second-largest fintech IPO of 2021 globally.

Overall, Paytm IPO is the 4th largest fintech stock debut.

“Paytm, which opened at an offer price of Rs 2,150 braved the markets on a tough day and its share price was also impacted. But Paytm came out stronger than how most other fintech companies fared during the same time,” said Dr. Ravi Singh, Research Head, Share India.

Globally, we probably went in at a time when QE, free money and many other parameters brought in a little bit of spook into the market, in terms of pricing. Some South American companies are 70 per cent down. Well, that’s not the reason for it completely, that’s a macro reason”. – At a recent event, Paytm CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma

“The better reason that I could say is Paytm, we are a payments company and everyone understands it and payment has a derivative revenue line item in financial services and is driven by credit. The success of Paytm will depend on what we do with monetisation, led by financial services. Payment is a revenue line item which is growing massively,” he added.

Globally, fintech players and emerging market players saw weak support from the markets as PayPal, Afterpay, Affirm, Square and many others were down almost 30 percent on average.

Most recently, Grab, the Singapore-based company, made its market debut and is also a ‘super app’ saw its share price drop by over 20 percent on listing day.

“Paytm has grown to be a financial services giant, which brings with it more monetisable opportunities. The share price of the company will correct itself as the company grows as has been seen in the market journey of US tech companies like Facebook, Tesla,” said Singh.

Analysts at JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley have assigned a ‘BUY’ rating to the Paytm stock with a target price of Rs 1,630-Rs 1,875.

The company, during its second-quarter earnings results, showed how its revenue grew by 64 percent on a yearly basis to Rs 10.9 billion.

During the July-September quarter, Paytm saw its contribution profit grow to Rs 2.6 billion in Q2 FY 2022, a year-on-year increase of 592 percent.

The contribution margin jumped to 24 percent of revenue from 5.7 percent the previous year.

Paytm’s business has also seen rapid growth, especially in the financial services space. The company in a recent filing said that its lending business saw 4.4 million loan disbursals through the platform (y-o-y growth of 401 percent), and value of Rs 21.8 billion (run-rate of $1.2 billion) (y-o-y growth of 365 percent).

The company’s GMV for Q3 FY 2022 stood at Rs 2,501 billion ($33.6 billion). “Year-to-date GMV is already higher than all of FY 2021, led by significant non-UPI GMV growth,” said the company in its regulatory filing.
