"With a diverse assortment of beauty, personal care and fashion products, Nykaa’s supremacy lies in its ability to retain and attract customers. Nykaa has witnessed sustained growth in GMV (gross merchandise value) over the years and has the highest AOV (average order value),” said Yesha Shah, Head of Equity Research at Samco Securities.

Its robust technology and content engine, focus on capital efficiency and positive unit economics, coupled with immense headroom for penetration, provide the company a long runway for growth. "The dearth of PAT-positive new-age companies in India and its first-mover advantage augur well for Nykaa to command a higher premium,” Yesha said.

“We believe the company is capable of improving its financial metrics and cementing its position going forward and hence recommend investors to Subscribe to the issue.”

Nykaa is a digitally native consumer technology platform, delivering a content-led lifestyle retail experience to consumers. The Nykaa vertical operates in beauty and personal care segment and the Nykaa Fashion vertical sells apparels and accessories.
