Food delivery platform Zomato announced that its board at its meeting held on Thursday has approved the investments in two Indian companies - Adonmo Private Limited and UrbanPiper Technology Private Limited. 

The company will buy a 19.48% stake in ad-tech company Adonmo for an aggregate cash consideration of 112 crore whereas it will purchase 5% equity in B2B software platform UrbanPiper for 37.38 crore.

The proposed investments are each subject to fulfilment of certain customary conditions precedent and other terms and conditions agreed under the investment agreements.
