Summary of Affle Limited  IPO

Affle Limited IPOBanking on the resurgence of global majors and the continuing policy stimulus-driven growth in China, India and similar economies, the outlook for global GDP growth for 2018 is 3.7%. While the U.S. is expected to see a modest growth pick-up due to stronger business and consumer confidence, both Europe and Japan are forecast to have stronger and sustained momentum with diminished political uncertainty and growing private consumption respectively.

E-commerce comprised one-tenth of the total global retail sales at USD 2.29 trillion (Source: eMarketer 2017), with about a fifth of this contribution coming from the United States. The U.S. has over 200 million e-commerce users (comprising 74% of its Internet users) and generated about USD 460 billion in 2017. This market is expected to grow to 250 million by 2022, exceeding USD 640 billion in revenue.

India with its rapidly growing Internet user base has become an attractive destination for international ad tech vendors, including Criteo, Mobvista, FreakOut – who have set up recently, alongside existing companies such as Affle, RevX, InMobi, among others. However, India presents its unique set of challenges such as a disjointed demographic which is just getting habituated to digital applications (such as the use of e-commerce, digital payments, etc.). Only 10% of Internet users are active (i.e., making a purchase at least once per month) e-commerce customers. Frost & Sullivan believes that this makes it a more challenging landscape for marketing tech to be able to discern the users who have the highest propensity to transact online.

According to the Restated Financial Statements,

The Indian e-commerce market had revenues of USD 38.5 billion in 2017 and is likely to grow at a CAGR of 12.4% to
USD 69.2 billion by 2022. However, with further increase in avenues for digital payments, accelerated broadband penetration, and an increasing number of product options across the breadth of the country, the market has the potential to grow to USD 130 billion over the same time period.

M-commerce (goods and services purchased via mobile) contributed about 55% of the total Indian e-commerce a market in 2017. With increasing data speeds, along with falling data access prices, this is likely to grow to over 70% of the e-commerce market by 2022.

The Promoter of this company is Anuj Khanna Sohum and Affle Holdings. The lead manager to the issue is ICICI Securities Limited, Nomura Financial Advisory and Securities (India) Private Limited and the Karvy Computershare Private Limited.
