Anand Rathi Report

Food aggregator Zomato has filed a draft prospectus with Securities and Exchange Board of India for a ~$1.1 billion issue (Rs 82.5 billion), comprising a fresh issue of Rs 75 billion and an offer for sale of Rs 7.5 billion.

(Info Edge India Ltd. now has an 18.55% stake.)

The company will be utilising Rs 56.25 billion (~75%) of the fresh issue to fund organic (~Rs 30 billion) and inorganic growth (~Rs 26.25 billion).

The rest will be used for general corporate purposes.

The initial public offering will be a test of Indian investors’ appetite for unicorns.
