MyGate announces ESOP buyback for over 50 employees


Community management app MyGate has announced employees stock buyback program for more than 50 employees. The buyback has come on the back of improved financial results for the Bengaluru-based company in the last and current fiscal year.

MyGate has announced the buyback plan of 20% of vested shares for employees who have completed four years at the firm.

“We are in the strongest financial position that we have ever been and well capitalised to fuel our growth and new initiatives,” said Abhishek Kumar, co-founder of MyGate.

The company primarily generates income through subscription revenue from resident welfare associations and from brands promoting themselves on the MyGate app.

The firm also said that it achieved zero cash burn in November 2023.

MyGate raised $56 million in a Series B round in October 2019. Later, it raised strategic money worth $12 million from home service marketplace Urban Company and insurance provider Acko in November 2022. Entrackr exclusively reported the development.

While the number of ESOP buybacks saw a downward trend in 2023, the amount of buyback and payout created a new record in the last year. As per data compiled by TheKredible, the total EOSP buyback/payout/liquidity in 2023 stood at nearly $802 million.
