Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investmart Ltd said, “The company’s tepid listing can be attributed to the current market conditions and the loss-making nature of the company. The company has a good track record of execution built on its proprietary technology and has scaled up significantly since its incorporation in 2011 to emerge as the largest fully-integrated logistics player in the country.”

“The runway of opportunity also appears good given India’s long-term growth prospects and the crucial role logistics plays when it comes to commerce. However, the logistics industry is extremely competitive and the company is yet to turn profitable,” Meena added.
