  • IndiaMart surplus cash on hand stands at Rs. 685 crore. It derives subscription based revenue from paid suppliers. 
  • The management has stated that reported profits are lower due to tax provisions coupled with one time FVTPL( fair value through profit or loss) adjustments and ESOP.

  • IndianMart IPO could garner good support from FIIs.
