Jefferies is bullish on Zomato with a long-term view and has given a buy call with a target of Rs 100 apiece.
"Zomato is a play on the growing food services industry in India as well as the increasing adoption of digital commerce. With only 20 million monthly transacting users currently, Zomato has a long runway for customer acquisition and revenue growth, although this may come at the cost of near-term profitability. The platform also has the option of expanding into other adjacent categories such as grocery, etc.," the brokerage said in its report.
