Food delivery startup Zomato raised $ 195 million from six investors, including US-based hedge funds Kora Management and Luxor Capital, according to a regulatory filing on Friday.
The fundraising values the company, one of India’s most prominent start-ups, at a post-money valuation of $ 3.6 billion, according to the filing by top shareholder Info Edge (India).
The investment is the latest in a slew of funding for Zomato in recent months, ahead of its planned initial public offering in the first half of 2021.
In September, the company raised $ 160 million from US hedge fund Tiger Global Management LLC and a unit of Singapore’s Temasek Holdings.
Zomato, like many other startups in India, has been grappling with the economic fallout of a two-month nationwide lockdown earlier this year to curb the spread of coronavirus.
It diversified into grocery and alcohol deliveries as a way to sustain itself during the pandemic.
