Exclusive: Ahead of IPO, MobiKwik raises debt from Blacksoil Capital


Fintech firm MobiKwik has raised Rs 50 crore in debt from BlackSoil Capital. This is the second debt funding from the same investor in the last two years for the Gurugram-based company.

The board at MobiKwik has passed a special resolution to issue 1,000 NCD (non-convertible debentures) at an issue price of Rs 5,00,000 each to raise Rs 50 crore, its regulatory filing sourced from RoC shows.

Recently, Mobikwik made its second attempt to go IPO and filed its draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) with SEBI to raise Rs 700 crore from its initial public offering. However, sources assert that it may reconsider its public listing plan after Paytm’s mounting perils.

According to the company’s latest DRHP, it will use Rs 250 crore from the proceeds of the IPO for financial service business. It has earmarked Rs 135 crore for funding growth of its payment service business while it plans to deploy Rs 135 crore towards strengthening product and technology. 

MobiKwik turned profitable in H1 of FY24 with Rs 9.5 crore profits along with an operating revenue of Rs 381 crore. In FY23, its operating revenue, however, went up just 2.37% to Rs 539 crore. The company booked a loss of Rs 83.8 crore in FY23 which shrank 34% from Rs 128 crore in the previous fiscal year.
