Food delivery app Swiggy, which is gearing up for initial public offerings (IPO), is offering high-net-worth individuals (HNIs) to purchase its shares at a 20 per cent markdown from its present valuation, according to a report by Entrackr.

According to the report, Swiggy's appointed financial advisors are "proposing shares priced at 350 each, valuing the company at 80,000 crore."

Previously, according to regulatory filings, US-based asset management company (AMC) Invesco has increased Swiggy's valuation by 19 per cent to $12.7 billion ahead of its anticipated IPO. Invesco had spearheaded a $700 million funding round for the food delivery startup in January 2022, valuing it at $10.7 billion.

Following that, Baron Capital, an investor in the company, assessed Swiggy's fair value at $12.2 billion as of March 2024, thereby giving a significant lift to the startup gearing up for its IPO.

These successive mark-ups are bringing Swiggy's valuation closer to its competitor, Zomato. Zomato's shares closed at 197.30 each on the NSE on Wednesday, April 10th. In intraday trading, it reached a record high of 199.60, nearly touching the psychological threshold of 200.

Swiggy is moving forward with its IPO plans amidst growing optimism in the market, which has thawed after a period known as the 'funding winter'. This is apparent from the recent valuation increases of various startups such as Meesho, PineLabs, FirstCry, and Ola Electric, all preparing for public offerings either within this year or in the early months of the next.

According to an internal company document, Swiggy incurred a loss of $200 million during the nine months ending in December 2023. The document also reveals that for the entire fiscal year 2022–23, Swiggy reported a loss of 41.8 billion ($500 million). 

However, the company anticipates reducing losses for the fiscal year 2023–24 through lower wage payouts and reduced marketing spending.
