While it is an epidemic-proof model and the company has the experience and a strong brand presence in addition to qualified human capital, this company has not turned profitable so far. Yes, it is a loss-making company and probably that is why no financial analyst company has given a subscribe rating to it. While Axis Capital and JM Financial Institutional Securities have given it a ‘neutral' rating, others have asked investors to avoid this IPO.
As such the company claims that it is doing much better in its niche and every month from the next financial year can generate revenue of Rs. 10 crores, but if we look at the loss of the company, then this claim can also prove to be a bit risky.
In the past, too many IPOs have come up in this niche such as Everonn Education Limited and Tutorials Point India – but none are doing well. Apart from this, there is more such as,
Tree House, MT Educare, Jointeca Education, Self Education, Shanti Educational, Global Education, CL Educate, Siddharth Education, Humming Bird Education, and Essential Education.
Now, investors are burning their pockets over recent investments in tech/unicorn loss-making companies that came up with their first offers. Hence ‘carefulness' is required while investing in a loss-making company from any segment – be it Veranda Learning Solutions or Unicorn.
