Restaurant aggregator and food delivery platform Zomato’s Initial Public Offering (IPO) worth 9,375, India’s biggest IPO this year, will be opening today. It will be open for subscription till July 16. At 72-76 per share price band, the company is looking to raise 9,375 crore through the offer.

Zomato’s IPO comprises a fresh issue of equity shares worth 9,000 crore and an offer-for-sale (OFS) worth 375 crore by existing investor Info Edge (India), the parent company of Naukri.com, according to the draft red herring prospectus. The company which is backed by Jack Ma’s Ant group is the first Indian unicorn and food delivery platform to launch an IPO.

An IPO entails listing a company at the stock markets, offering the public and money managers an opportunity to participate in that company as a shareholder. This IPO is expected to bring Zomato’s valuation to a whooping 64,365 crore, and has created quite the buzz. “Zomato as a brand has been very popular amongst the younger audience and with the Covid situation it has caught up with the middle-aged and senior citizens as well,” Amit Khurana, Head of Equities, Dolat Capital Market told Hindustan Times.
