MobiKwik files DRHP for Rs 1,900 IPO

Online payments firm MobiKwik has filed its draft documents to raise Rs 1,900 crore via public offering, the latest among the slew of internet companies wanting to list on stock exchanges.

About Rs 1,500 crore will be primary share sales while up to Rs 400 crore will be secondary share sales where existing investors can sell their stake.

Founded in 2009 by husband-wife duo Bipin Preet Singh and Upasana Taku, One MobiKwik System Limited was last valued at $700 million when it raised $20 million last month from Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA).

For the year ended March 31, 2021, MobiKwik’s total income was down by 18 percent to Rs 302 crore while its losses rose 12 percent to Rs 11 crore.

Its other investors include venture firm Sequoia Capital India, Bajaj Finance, Amex, Tree Line, and Cisco.

The promoters Singh and Taku plan to sell about Rs 190 crore of their stake, while Sequoia and Bajaj Finance will sell Rs 95 crore and 69 crore respectively, filings said.

According to recent a report by Credit Suisse, MobiKwik has evolved from a wallet player to offer a wider stack of financial products to its 120 mn customers and three million merchants. It has added UPI, 200+ billers, and also cross-sells loans, insurance, and investment products.
