 Here's a look at what brokerages say about the public issue.

Angel One has assigned a subscribe rating to the IPO.

"Despite the impact of Covid on key customer market (Automobile & Mobility Tech) in FY21, the company was able to post revenue growth of 3% and the margin profile is strong which would be supported with growing scale going ahead. At the upper end of the price band, the company is commanding price to sales multiple of 36x on FY21 revenue and 28x based on TTM Revenues. Considering the company's leadership position in India, client base and benefits of network effect, healthy margins and return profile as well strong cash conversion, we recommend SUBSCRIBE on the issue from a long-term perspective, the brokerage said.

Marwadi Shares and Finance is positive on the prospects of the share sale.

"Considering the TTM (Sept-2021) adjusted EPS of Rs 16.30 on the post-issue basis, the company is going to list at a P/E of 63.37 with a market cap of Rs 55,000 mn. There are no listed companies in India whose business is comparable with that of the company's business. We assign the Subscribe rating to this IPO as the company is one of the leading data and technology products and platform company having a well-known brand MapmyIndia with customers like PhonePe, Hyundai and Flipkart. Also, it is available at a reasonable valuation considering the future growth potential, " the brokerage said.

 Anand Rathi has given a subscribe call to the share sale.

"The company being a B2B and B2B2C market leader in India with a comprehensive suite of SaaS, PaaS and MaaS offerings. The total Indian addressable market of digital maps and location based intelligence services is expected to grow to USD 7.74 billion in 2025 at around 15.5% CAGR from 2019 to 2025. MapmyIndia is all set to capitalise the exponential growth opportunity being the market leader. It also has an early mover advantage and a profitable business model with consistent financial track record and strong cash flows. However the valuation seems to be marginally rich, hence we recommend a "Subscribe-Long Term" rating to this IPO," the financial services firm said.
