The latest round of funding in Zomato is part of $600 million funding round announced by Goyal at a Delhi event in December.
"This is to inform you that Zomato Media Private Ltd. ('Zomato') has signed a definitive agreement to undertake a primary fund raise of up to USD 150 million from Antfin Singapore Holding Pte. Ltd. ('Antfin') (which is an existing shareholder of Zomato) and/or any of its affiliates," the company said in a BSE filing.
"The transaction values Zomato at a pre-money valuation of $3 billion," the company added.
In 2018, Ant Financial invested $210 million in Zomato for 14.7 per cent stake and later raised the stake to 23 per cent.
Other Zomato investors include Info Edge India, Vy Capital, Sequoia Capital and Singapore-based Temasek.
The latest funding comes at a time when Zomato is reportedly aiming to buy UberEats' India business for around $400 million.
