swiggy

Swiggy, the popular food delivery giant, has made a significant move in its journey towards going public. The company has officially transitioned from a private limited entity to a public limited company. This strategic shift comes as the company prepares for its much-anticipated initial public offering (IPO) later this year.

Key Highlights:

  1. Name Change: Swiggy’s holding company has undergone a name transformation. It was previously known as Swiggy Private Limited, but now it operates under the name Swiggy Limited.
  2. IPO Plans: The company is gearing up to submit a draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) within the next few months. The company aims to raise a substantial $1 billion through its IPO.
  3. New-Age Internet Companies: Swiggy joins a growing list of new-age internet companies that are eyeing stock market listings. Other players in this trend include FirstCryAwfis, and Ola Electric.

Financial Insights of Swiggy:

  • Revenue and Losses: Swiggy’s financials have been closely scrutinized. For the nine months through December 2023, the company recorded a $207-million loss on a revenue of $1.02 billion. In fiscal 2023, Swiggy posted a net loss of $501 million on operating revenue of $992 million.
  • Cost Optimization: Ahead of filing its draft IPO papers, the company is diligently working to improve its financial metrics. The focus is on reducing cash burn, particularly in its quick-commerce division, Instamart.

Leadership Changes:

  • Suparna Mitra: Recently, the company appointed Suparna Mitra, the chief executive of Titan’s watches and wearables division, as an independent director.
  • Mallika Srinivasan: Earlier, Mallika Srinivasan, chairperson of Tractor and Farm Equipment Ltd, stepped down as an independent director.

Conclusion:

Swiggy’s transition to a public limited company marks a significant milestone in its growth trajectory. As it readies itself for the IPO, all eyes are on this dynamic player in the foodtech industry.
