Top executives of online food ordering and restaurant discovery firm Zomato are likely to become millionaires after the company’s initial public offering (IPO) later this year.
The Info Edge-backed firm filed its Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP) with the market regulator last month, kicking off one of India’s most anticipated internet IPOs in a tumultuous year.
According to the DRHP, the company will offer equity shares aggregating up to Rs 8,250 crore (nearly $1.1 billion).
Zomato currently counts 74 stakeholders, with at least 18 people having stakes of more than 1 percent or more of the company’s paid-up share capital, with founder and chief executive officer Deepinder Goyal holding a 5.5 percent stake.
On the other hand, the total number of options available under the Employees Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) 2014 is 41,766.
Under the terms of ESOP 2014, for each option, 6,700 equity shares shall be allotted. The value of ESOPs held by the top employees will be derived by dividing the company’s last estimated pre-money valuation of $5.4 billion by the total number of diluted shares outstanding as of December 31, 2020. As per the calculation, the per-share price stands at Rs 74.
While the value of the equity held by Goyal stands at Rs 2,734 crore, here is a list of the rest of the top 10 people in the company, their number of outstanding ESOPs, and what the cash pile they are sitting on is worth.
