Zomato to add fresh ESOPs worth $455 Mn


Foodtech and quick commerce platform Zomato on Monday announced fresh employee stock option (ESOP) options for its employees under the new plan: ESOP 2024.

The board at Zomato has agreed to adopt and implement Zomato’s Employee Stock Option Plan 2024 with fresh 18,26,27,402 stock options for the company, subsidiaries, and associate entities. The resolution is subject to the approval of the shareholders of the company.

Every ESOP option will be converted into equity shares, said filings, and as per Fintrackr’s estimates, the newly added ESOP options are worth around Rs 3,780 crore (approximately $455 million).

The above calculation is based on Zomato’s peak share price of Rs 207 (as of 3PM, May 13 2024).

The objective of expanding the ESOP pool is “to promote the employee ownership and as well as to attract, retain, motivate and incentivize critical talents in the line with corporate growth,”

The Gurugram-based company showed robust growth which could be evident from its growth in FY24. Zomato’s revenue from operations surged 71% year-on-year to Rs 12,114 crore in FY24 from Rs 7,079 crore in FY22. Moreover, the profits of the company stood at Rs 351 crore in FY24 as compared to a loss of Rs 971 crore in FY23.

Meanwhile, its direct competitor, Swiggy booked Rs 5,476 crore in revenue from operations and Rs 1,600 crore loss during the first three quarters of the financial year FY24. Its revenue and losses stood at Rs 8,265 crore and Rs 4,179 crore, respectively, in FY23.
