Info Edge did not participate in the latest round of funding, as a result its holding in Zomato has declined to 47 percent from 50.1 percent.


Bank of America Merill Lynch has increased target price to Rs 1094 from Rs 1050 per share. "Though the valuation at which the fund raising has taken place has not been revealed, the brokerage estimates the funding to be at a valuation of USD 1 billion, which adds Rs 44 to Info Edge SOTP valuation,” it says in a report.


Nomura, too, is bullish on the stock with a buy rating and a target price of Rs 950 per share. The brokerage believes that its flagship brand Naukri will largely sustain annual revenue growth of 20 percent and expects EBITDA margins to inch up over the next two years by 140 basis points (bps) to 52.6 percent levels.

Oil prices remained weak as the global economic outlook darkened further and cooperation between oil producing countries to curb oversupply looked unlikely.
