Matrimony.com IPO Review: We are watching that all the recent issues coming are fully priced. On the performance and profit front, the company has not done well on FY 2014 to FY 2016, especially the profits got a hit on FY 2016. Still, we consider the vast opportunity in the internet sector and current internet usage may still be at the tip of the iceberg. Hence, our Matrimony.com IPO review stays with a NEUTRAL view on this public issue. Cash rich investors can invest for a medium to long term, but it will be wise to wait until the last day and check the institutional interest on this Matrimony.com IPO.
