Comfort-tech brand The Sleep Company has announced the second tranche of ESOP (employee stock ownership plan) buyback for its employees. The current buyback will benefit a total of 105 employees, including 50% of women employees.

After securing Rs 13.4 crore in pre-Series A, and Rs 177 crore in a Series B round led by Premji Invest and Fireside Ventures, the company recently secured Rs 184 crore in Series C Funding.

The Sleep Company has rolled out the second tranche of the programme in just four years since its inception, which is set to benefit employees irrespective of their seniority. The company rolled out its first ESOP buyback programme in 2023 worth Rs 83.47 lakh. 

Founded by Priyanka and Harshil Salot, The Sleep Company offers premium products with technology rooted in developments in material science and sleep science. In June 2022, the platform marked its foray into offline retail with the launch of its first store in Bengaluru, to open over 150 stores by end of 2024.

The firm claims to have achieved significant growth with its revenue growing 2.6 times over the last 12 months, reaching Rs 130 crore in sales in 2023. Through its omnichannel model, the company has over 70 stores across the country and is well on its way to opening 150 stores by the end of 2024. 

Last month, audio series platform Pocket FM announced its first ESOP buyback worth $8.3 million. As per data compiled by TheKredible, the total EOSP buyback/payout/liquidity stood at nearly $802 million in 2023. In 2021 and 2022, the buyback amount was recorded at $440 and $200 million respectively. In 2024, MyGate, Classplus and Meesho also completed their ESOP buyback scheme.
