  • Beyond the numbers – ProCapitas Think Tank 🧠
    • Let’s look beyond these numbers and try to answer – “What Matters”
      • Is Zomato really making money?
        • Well, this is tricky to answer. Though revenue numbers look promising, the profits haven’t been up to mark to make earning based investments (EPS of -222).
        • Additionally, the company has continued negative returns on equity for three consecutive years.
        • Is the company strategically evolving?
          • Well, money does give you power. After closing their own grocery delivery business, Zomato has invested 100Mn in the Indian grocery platform – grofers.
          • Though they have failed once, the move to invest in complementary service lines of already running businesses reduced the business risk at the same time gives the diversification advantage.
        • Zomato has a great brand value with a widespread and efficient on-demand hyperlocal network. Although Zomato has incurred losses it manages to report the highest ever gross order value(GOV). On the other hand, Swiggy who is its major rival has shown good results too. 
        • The online food industry has its main focus in building customer relationships after giving discounts, cashback and expenses on advertisements and the valuation should be done on the basis of its overall sales volume. Though this narrative looks lucrative, it would be interesting to see how soon these sales can turn up to real earnings.
