Investment Rationale:
InfoEdge (India) Ltd operates a wide range of online websites. It enjoys leadership position in recruitment website, in and is among the top three players in matrimony- Recently, InfoEdge made an investment and raised its stake in bangalore based Canvera Digital Technologies to 32 % for Rs. 13.5 Cr. InfoEdge's total investment in Canvera now stands at Rs. 57 Cr. Canvera Digital Technologies offers mass customized printed products and ecommerce solutions to professional photographers, it offers products such as coffee table books, posters,calenders. Apart from this, InfoEdge has made significant strategic investments into emerging internet companies like,,, and With its headquarters in Noida (NCR), the company employs over 2,460 people and operates through a network of 57 offices located in 32 cities throughout India. These offices primarily engage in sales, marketing and payment collection activities for company’s businesses. To cater to the Gulf market they have 2 offices in Dubai and 1 each in Bahrain, Riyadh and Abu Dhabi. Info Edge India Ltd, is a clear leader in key online classifieds segments and now is one of the primary beneficiaries of structural shift in ad spends towards online platforms which is clearly driven by increasing smartphone penetration and which is on the cusp of a J curve. India is among the world's youngest nations with a median age of 26 years. 65 % of Indian population is estimated to be below 35 years of age and India will have 7 Cr new entrants to its work force over the next 5 years. India currently has about 21.4 Cr internet users, the third largest in the world and is likely to have 33 Cr to 37 Cr internet users in 2015 which would then be the second largest in terms of incremental growth. Due to declining costs of Internet access and mobile devices, nearly 55 % of aggregate user base in 2015 is expected to have an access to the internet from a mobile or tablet device in India. Economic contribution from Internet in India can be potentially doubled from current 1.6 % of GDP to 2.8 % to 3.3 % by 2015. Internet-related economy is expected to grow bigger than education and as big as healthcare sector in terms of current GDP share. Internet’s effect on the Indian economy goes well beyond iGDP. The Current levels of internet-related expenditure are estimated to create about 60 lakhs direct and indirect jobs. As the direct impact of the internet on India’s GDP has the potential to treble by 2015, an additional 1.6 Cr jobs could be created. Info Edge’s Naukri has garnered higher market share in this slowdown, also its innovative products helps naukri to combat threat against, naukri continues to invest in its brand, sales team, customer service, tech and product innovation and support.

Outlook and Valuation:
Info Edge (India) ltd is India’s one of the largest leading online company with its strong brands and sustainable growing businesses. It has a very excellent and experienced management team. The company have invested in several internet start-ups ventures. The company has shown a rapid growth with share of revenues coming from its verticals other than recruitment has grown from 5 % in FY06 to 22.5 % in FY13. Historically, Info Edge has shown revenue CAGR of 28 % over the past years FY06 to FY13. Info Edge reported revenue of Rs. 483 Cr in FY13 along with the cash and liquid assets of Rs. 434 Cr. Company operates on a negative working capital. Info Edge has invested Rs. 57 Cr in Zomato in Q3 and Rs. 10 Cr in Meritnation and Rs. 4.5 Cr in Canverra, which will help accelerate company average growth. Overall, though Q3 was soft, Q4 is a seasonally better quarter led by license renewals while a recovery in IT-BPO hiring could aid FY15E growth. The Naukri Job Speak Index for December 2013 was flat QoQ at 1296 but grew 12.7 % YoY. Overall resumes on increased by a 10 lakhs to 3.60 Cr vs. 3.50 Cr in Q2. Recruitment EBITDA margins declined 1.43 % QoQ to 49.3 % while losses in other businesses widened to Rs. 3.2 Cr vs. Rs. 2.2 Cr in Q2. For Info Edge the macro is challenging and continues to influence the revenue predictability while higher advertising and marketing costs, increased competitive pressure in selected portfolio companies and rising investments in the investee companies could pressure EBITDA margins. Info Edge is expected to report revenue CAGR of 17 % and PAT CAGR of 23 % during FY13-FY15 E. At the current market price of Rs. 599.05, the stock is trading at a PE of 43.00 x FY14E and 32.12 x FY15E respectively. The company can post Earnings per share (EPS) of Rs. 13.00 in FY14E and Rs. 17.40 in FY15E. One can buy INFO EDGE INDIA LIMITED with a target price of Rs. 660.00 for Medium to Long term investment and for the Short Term Players it should be Rs. 630.00

SALES ( Crs)391.90472.30523.00632.90
NET PROFIT (₹ Cr)103.3091.60141.50190.50

ROE (%)18.3013.2017.2019.00
ROCE (%)19.4015.7019.4020.20

I would buy INFO EDGE INDIA LTD for Medium to Long term for target of Rs. 660.00 and for the shorter term the target would br Rs. 630.00. As I always say, I am a long term believer in markets & I do respect the markets and will keep a strict stop loss of ₹ 551.12 on every purchase(Why Strict stop loss of 8 % ?) - Click Here
