While Flipkart was acquired by Walmart in 2018 when the American retail giant shelled out a whopping $17 billion for 77% stake, Binny Bansal and early investors including Accel, Tencent and Tiger Global still collectively own stakes worth over $3 billion in the company.

The Indian e-commerce giant has received a fresh cash infusion of $560.45 million from its majority shareholder: Walmart. According to regulatory filings, Flipkart’s Singapore based holding entity Flipkart Private Limited allotted 3,957,960 shares to Walmart’s Luxembourg entity FIT Holdings SARL at an issue price of $141.6 per share. 

As per Fintrackr’s estimate, Flipkart has been valued nearly $23 billion after this funding tranche. Flipkart has announced a total $1.2 billion infusion from Walmart. However, the company is yet to allot shares for the remaining $639.5 million from Walmart. 

After this fresh proceeds from Walmart, the Doug McMillon-led retail conglomerate owns 82.1% of Flipkart. At present, the stakes are worth $18.9 billion. Chinese internet conglomerate Tencent stands out as the second-biggest shareholder in the e-commerce marketplace, holding 5.1% stake worth around $1.15 billion via its subsidiary Aceville.
