Zomato was founded in 2008. In India, the startup rivals Swiggy and Amazon. At present, the company is valued at around $4.2 billion, according to estimates by research firm RedSeer.
Experts are suggesting that the IPO could be a blockbuster on Indian bourses. If you’re planning to subscribe to Zomato’s IPO, you can take note of the following five things:

Zomato is backed by China`s Ant Group. However, before the IPO, Ant Group has reduced its stake in the food aggregator due to the rising tensions between India and China.
