The Zomato Thesis: The brokerage in its latest research report stated that Zomato could experience 20% growth in its food delivery Gross Merchandise Value (GMV) in the near future, driven by a robust addition of eateries onto its platform and market share gains.

The analysts added that the imposition of a platform fee to all customers, along with the introduction of new value-added services, has the potential to enhance Zomato’s overall monetization strategy and increase its total take rate. Kotak Securities projects earnings per share (EPS) of ₹2.2 in FY25E and ₹4.2 in FY26E for the food tech company. A negative pointed out by the analysts was the Hyperpure Business making a loss on the EBITDA level.
