Swiggy IPO: A broader trend

The food delivery giant's decision to go public aligns with a broader trend of new-age internet companies in India seeking to list on public bourses. In recent months, firms including Ola Electric, FirstCry, Awfis, and Honasa Consumer (parent company of Mamaearth) have also filed their draft IPO papers.

Swiggy had previously changed its registered name from ‘Bundl Technologies Pvt Ltd’ to ‘Swiggy Pvt Ltd’ in February 2023, to establish a stronger brand identity and association with its core business of food delivery.

Focus on Financials

Ahead of filing IPO documents, Swiggy is reportedly focusing on improving its financial performance and reducing cash burn, particularly in its quick-commerce division, Instamart. 

For the nine months ending December 2023, the company reportedly recorded a loss of $207 million on a revenue of $1.02 billion. In the previous fiscal year, Swiggy posted a net loss of $501 million on operating revenue of $992 million.
