[Funding Galore] From Skit to Soothe Healthcare — Over $130 Mn Raised By Indian Startups This Week

Sep 4, 2021

Funding into Indian startups has declined over the past few weeks, with this week also bringing a sharp drop in total funding raised and the number of deals. With over 27 funding rounds, Indian startups have raised over $130 Mn this week, compared to $228 Mn raised last week and  $743 Mn raised in the week before that (August 16-21, 2021). The biggest round this week was raised by Skit, formerly Vernacular.ai, which secured $23 Mn in its Series B round WestBridge Capital, Kalaari Capital, Exfinity Ventures, and others. D2C health brand Soothe Healthcare completed its Series C round and raked in $13.6 Mn to fuel its growth plans and accelerate domestic manufacturing. Further, Mumbai-based fraud detection startup IDfy has made filings to raise $12 Mn from TransUnion International and Blume Ventures. Y Combinator-backed Bikayi raised a $10.8 Mn Series A round led by Sequoia Capital India and will be looking to boost product development, acquisition and talent hiring. Out of the 27 deals this week, most investments were seen in the enterprise tech (6), fintech (6) and ecommerce (6) sectors. Here are all the funding rounds disclosed this week:   Startup IPO News Snapdeal Plans $400 Mn IPO Snapdeal is reportedly in talks for filing an IPO that could rake in $400 Mn. The Softbank-backed ecommerce platform is said to be looking to list on the Bombay Stock Exchange at a valuation of $2.5 Bn. Snapdeal now joins the lists of startups such as hospitality unicorn OYO, cab-hailing service Ola, along with Walmart-owned Flipkart which are now in talks to go public next year. MapMyIndia Files DRHP With SEBI MapMyIndia has filed its draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) with SEBI . The mapping tech startup will be selling 7,547,959 equity shares to raise funds in the public offering. In the IPO, MapMyIndia’s executive director Rashmi Verma will be offloading up to 3,070,033 shares. The startup’s early backer Qualcomm is looking to sell 2,026,055 equity shares and Japanese map publisher Zenrin is looking to offload up to 1,027,471 equity shares. Ola Brings In CitiGroup & Kotak Mahindra To Manage Its IPO Mobility giant Ola has selected Citigroup and Kotak Mahindra to manage its initial public offering (IPO) , which is reportedly happening early next year. The ride hailing company has also hired investment bank Morgan Stanley for its speculated $1 Bn IPO. Ola will be seeking a valuation of more than $8 Bn in the IPO and is likely to file its draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) before the end of the year. Last month, Ola’s founder Bhavish Agarwal had revealed Ola’s plan to go for an IPO next year, followed by the public listing for Ola Electric. US-Based T Rowe Marks Up Paytm’s Share By Over 16% Investment giant T Rowe Price, which invested in Paytm in 2019, has marked up the share price of the company by over 16% from the original price it paid during its investment. For the quarter ending in June 2021, at least two mutual funds priced the fintech giant’s shares at $295 compared to the original $254. This is approximately a 57% increase compared to the valuation in the year-ago quarter, when shares were marked down to $188. IPO-bound Paytm raised $1 Bn from T Rowe Price, Ant Financial, SoftBank Vision Fund, and Discovery Capital in November 2019. Startups M&A This Week PayU Acquires BillDesk For $4.7 Bn  Among India’s biggest fintech deals, Prosus, parent company of fintech startup PayU has acquired Indian payments gateway company BillDesk for $4.7 Bn . With this deal, PayU and BillDesk will together own a wide market share in the online payments and billing providers and become one of the biggest entities in this domain globally, in terms of total payment volume. The deal is awaiting its approval from the CCI. Billdesk is the fourth major acquisition by PayU after CitrusPay, WImbo, and PaySense. GlobalBees Acquires D2C Home Care Brand The Better Home Thrasio-style venture, FirstCry’s GlobalBees has acquired sustainable home care products company The Better Home, which began as a content platform The Better India. The Better Home’s core team of 15 employees will join GlobalBees and continue working as per the existing product roadmap, GlobalBees said. Reliance Acquires Sole Control Of Justdial Reliance Retail has become the largest shareholder and taken sole control of Just Dial Limited by acquiring a 40.98% stake in the company. Justdial allotted 2.12 Cr equity shares of INR 10 each at a price of INR 1022.25 per share on September 1. This represents 25.35% of the post-preferential issue paid-up share capital of Justdial to Reliance Retail. In July, Reliance had bought 1.31 Cr equity shares of INR 10 each at a price of INR 1020 per share from VSS Mani, founder, CEO & MD, Justdial.
