Honasa Consumer Draft Red Herring Prospectus: Mamaearth IPO

The Honasa Consumer Private Ltd was founded in 2016 by Varun Alagh and Ghazal Alagh, who also happen to be a couple. Their company now owns some big brands such as Mamaearth, The Derma Co, and BBlunt too. So in 2023, the company plans on expanding its business further by offering its shares in the stock market for the first time. Out of the total issue, the fresh issue of shares would be worth ₹400 crores and the total number of shares offered for sale would be around 46,819,635.

With the amount that the company would raise from the stock market, it plans on expanding its business further inorganically. Here’s what the company has mentioned about its plans in its IPO document:

“We intend to utilise Rs 186 crore from the net proceeds towards marketing initiatives during financial years 2024, 2025 and 2026, including through offline and online media service agreements with entities that we engage in the ordinary course as well as any new vendors or agencies, as may be deemed appropriate”

Moreover, Mamaearth’s parent company would spend ₹32 crores for the expansion of Exclusive Brand Outlets (EBOs) in India. Thus, you can say that the company has taken a positive step towards marketing itself in the offline market too as most of its customers know about Mamaearth and the Derma company through online sources only.

Last but not least, the investors in the Indian stock market would like to play safe with this IPO after seeing what happened to Paytm and other Indian companies upon their arrival with their IPOs. Moreover, since this IPO is going to be an Offer For Sale too and the fact that most of its initial investors are selling their shares might not be a good news, right?

Agreed!!
Brands even use unethical tactics to make their balance sheet look better in front of investors. So it's better to wait for the complete financial data of the company for now.

One of the risk factors (according to me):

Products and the brand is currently revolving around MadeSafe Certification (third-party), continuation of which is essential for customer trust.

Mamaearth is on the decline in its business. Their OMG sales are not even attractive anymore since they have started restricting the Buy 1 Get 1 Free sale only on very few selective products. The price of their products has also skyrocketed and is no longer worth value for money. Once an avid Mamaearth fan, now I haven't shopped from them for the past 1 year.

Agreed!
India is a price-sensitive market and any brand with not-so-affordable prices would have a hard time here.
