Risks of the MapmyIndia

Investments in equities and equity-related securities are risky. Before making an investment choice in an IPO, you should carefully consider the risk factors.

  • It is dependent on trends in the sectors where its enterprise customers operate. Negative sentiments or downturns in global macroeconomic conditions or disruption in business activities can impact its customers, which can impact its sales to the customers.
  • A part of the business is dependent on the performance of the automotive sector, including in its key market, India. Any adverse changes in the conditions affecting the sector can adversely impact the business, results of operations and financial condition.
  • The inability to maintain or update the map database or errors in the map database could harm its reputation or adversely affect its ability to sell the products and services.
  • It is dependent on the success of the research and development (R&D). Any failure to develop competitive new or improved products and services or process improvements or updated map data could adversely affect its business, financial condition and results of operations. This may negatively impact the competitive position.
  • Any inability to protect its intellectual property (IP) or any third-party claims in relation to infringement of intellectual property rights could adversely affect the business, reputation, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

While the majority of debuts have been successful, the recent underperformance of the country’s digital payments pioneer Paytm, was an outlier. MapmyIndia is profitable, in contrast to several of India’s more well-known businesses.
