Walmart Arm Flipkart Raises IPO Valuation Target to 60–70B Dollars, Eyes U.S. Market



NEW DELHI, INDIA - Walmart is traversing the digital space to continue bringing e-commerce advancements to its grocery empire. Setting its focus on its Indian e-commerce platform Flipkart, the grocer has announced the arm has reportedly internally raised its IPO valuation target to $60–70 billion.

According to Reuters, Flipkart raised its valuation target by around a third from $50 billion. The retail arm now plans for a United States listing in 2023, two sources with direct knowledge of the plan told Reuters. The main reason for waiting, continued the source, is due to Flipkart’s internal plan to boost valuations further by focusing on two relatively new businesses—online healthcare services and travel bookings. (How this will affect potential grocery e-commerce as Flipkart makes a bid in the United States remains to be seen.)
