Rare Rabbit

New-age fashion brand Rare Rabbit has raised Rs 150 crore (approximately $18 million) in primary capital led by A91 Partners. This is the maiden institutional investment for a Bengaluru-based company since its inception in 2015.

The board at Rare Rabbit has passed a special resolution to issue 69,230 compulsory convertible preference shares at an issue price of Rs 21,670 each to raise Rs 150 crore, its regulatory filings accessed from the Registrar of Companies show.

A91 Partners led the round with Rs 102 crore while Zerodha’s founders NKSquared injected Rs 29 crore. Gruhas Proptech, Ravi Modi Family Trust, and Vendant Modi cumulatively participated with Rs 18.92 crore during the investment.

As per TheKredible’s estimates, the company has been valued at around Rs 2,350 crore or $283 million post-allotment.

Following the fresh proceeds, the A91 emerging fund will hold 9.65% of the capital while NKSquared and Ravi Modi Family Trust will get 4.15% and 2.13% of the stake in the company, the filing further added.

This appears to be a part of a larger round as Rare Rabbit was in talks to raise Rs 500 crore led by A91 partners. Inc42 reported the development first.

Rare Rabbit is a high-end fashion brand specializing in designer clothing for men and women. The brand operates more than 100 stores across India and offers collections through its online store.
