Should You Subscribe to Yatra Online IPO?

Yatra Online has established itself as a trusted name in the Indian travel industry, a space in a few large players, like MakeMyTrip, IRCTC, and EaseMyTrip, who dominate many other small online and offline players.


  • Large and loyal user base: 90% of the total traffic source comes from direct and organic traffic, with a 98.7% booking success rate. Over 12 million cumulative travel customers as of September 30, 2021.
  • Strong presence in the B2B segment: Tie-up with 700 large corporates and over 46,000 registered SME customers. The B2B segment in Indian OTA is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12% to 14%
  • A comprehensive selection of products and services: Provide booking facility in over 93,500 properties – hotels and homestays on the platform across 1400 cities in India.
  • Integrated technology platform: Developed a single standard user view across B2C and B2B channels, enabling smooth inventory integration. Have a dedicated in-house advanced technology infrastructure and data analytics capability.


  • Failed to generate profits: The company has failed to generate profits over the last many years and is also not EBITDA positive
  • High dependency on air ticketing revenue: The company has failed to scale up other business segments, primarily the holidays & packages segment. A drop in air ticketing revenue directly impacts the company’s financial position.

Threats/ Risks

  • Highly competitive industry: Indian online travel industry is a highly competitive industry, with almost all players working on razor-thin margins
  • Macro and geopolitical risks: The performance of the travel and tourism industry largely depends on the state of the economy. People tend to reduce spending if the economy is not performing well or has a weak outlook.
  • Health emergencies: A pandemic-like situation severely impacts the travel and tourism industry and is the last sector to witness a rebound.


  • Improving outlook for air travel in India: With record-breaking aircraft orders from Indian airlines and the government’s push to increase the number of airports from 140 to 220 by 2025, online OTA platforms have enormous growth potential. Indian OTAs are expected to grow at a CAGR of 10%-12% between the FY20-25 period.
  • THE B2B segment is expected to drive growth: The B2B category’s share of the overall OTA industry is expected to increase from ₹33 billion in FY20 to ₹62-66 billion in FY25. Yatra can directly benefit from the growth potential because it is a strong player in the B2B segment.
  • Strengthening its presence in the holiday packages segment: Being a higher-margin segment, Yatra can benefit significantly if it strengthens its presence in the holiday packages segment, currently dominated by large TTAs.

Yatra Online Share Price Performance in Nasdaq

Yatra Online was listed on Nasdaq in December 2016 through a reverse merger with Terrapin 3 Acquisition Corporation valuing the enterprise at $218 million. Yatra raised more than $92.5 million as a part of the process.

Since its listing on Nasdaq, Yatra Online share price has failed to give positive returns to investors over the long term, falling from a high of $12.85, which it made in July 2017, and is currently trading at $2.2 level.

Despite its presence in the high-growth travel and tourism industry, Yatra Online’s failure to churn profits from operations is a cause of concern. Moreover, cost pressure will likely persist with new players entering the market.

Yatra Online’s ability to turn around performances in the holiday packages segment and other activities is likely to strengthen its position.
