1: BSE and NSE listed Intrasoft technologies is another e-commerce company with low base($13-million market cap) and unknown look interesting but making some losses like flipkart and snapdeal in online shopping division. It is good only for long term and patience investor.Venture Capitalist Intel Capital is investor of Snapdeal . They have also invested (around 12% holding) in Intrasoft technologies and sees good future of their fast growing online retail shopping 123stores dot com in USA . As per expansion plan it is likely to launch first in Canada then in India. 123Stores reported record sales over the long holiday weekend from Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday of over $2 million, a 243% percent increase over last year . If It maintains this growth then We believe very soon like Intel some of the other Venture Capitalist investors of FlipKart and Snapdeal like Yuri Milner’s DST Global , Tiger Global, Naspers , Iconiq Capital , Accel Partners, Morgan Stanley Investment Management ,Singapore sovereign-wealth , Nexus Venture Partners , Indo-US Venture Partners ,Bessemer Venture Partners , Kalaari Capita and Qatar Investment Authority will have eye on Intrasoft technologies.
