Exclusive: IPO-bound Swiggy converts itself into a public entity


Foodtech and quick commerce decacorn Swiggy has converted into a public entity, as per the resolution passed by the board of directors of the company with the Registrar of Companies. This marks the company’s concrete step towards a definitive IPO plan in the second half of this year.

The name of the holding company has been changed from Swiggy Private Limited to Swiggy Limited.

In February, Bundl Technologies Private Limited changed its name to Swiggy Private Limited. The company said that will help it to establish greater proximity and identification of the company’s corporate name with the company’s core brand.

Swiggy has been readying itself for public listing for quite some time and the Bengaluru-based firm may file IPO papers soon. As per media reports, the company will seek a valuation in the range of $12-15 billion.

The firm recently appointed Suparna Mitra as an independent director to its board.

While Swiggy claimed that its food delivery business turned profitable as of March 2023, the firm reported Rs 4,179 crore in overall loss during FY23. Moreover, the company booked Rs 5,476 crore in revenue from operations during the first three quarters of the financial year FY24 and recorded $200 million (approximately Rs 1,600 crore) loss for the nine months. Entrackr had exclusively reported about Swiggy’s financial three quarters (FY24) numbers in the last week of March.

Last month, US-based asset management firm Baron Capital marked up the valuation of Swiggy to $12.1 billion up from $10.7 billion during the last fundraise in January 2022. It’s one of the few IPO-bound companies that saw back to back valuation markup by early investors.
