Impressive Q4 Results Drive Market Sentiment

Following its financial disclosures for the quarter ending March 31, 2024, Go Digit reported a substantial surge in profit after tax (PAT) for the fiscal year 2023-24 (FY24), reaching INR 182 Cr. This marked an impressive over 400% increase from the previous fiscal’s INR 36 Cr.

Analyst Insights and Contrary Perspectives

Despite the favorable market sentiment, brokerage firm Emkay adopted a cautious stance on Go Digit’s prospects. Initiating coverage with a ‘Sell’ rating and a price target (PT) of “INR 210/ish” by June 2025, Emkay raised valuation concerns. Notably, Go Digit’s price-earnings ratio (P/E) and price-to-book (P/B) ratio surpassed those of its listed peers, including ICICI Lombard and Star Health, prompting apprehensions regarding its valuation.
