We remain bullish about the company's long-term growth prospects in the hyperlocal delivery space, because we believe it is well positioned to benefit from robust industry tailwinds such as improving tech penetration and rising income share of digitally native millennials GenZ. We have raised our core business EBITDA margin estimates over FY 23 -- 25 basis incremental disclosures in Zomato's FY 22 annual report, leading to upward adjustment of our EPS estimates. JM Financial stated that we retain our 15 Yr DCF target price for core business at Rs 115, while highlighting that Blinkit merger integration can add 8 per cent value to our target price.
