Acquisition of Myntra.com

This was the most talked topic in the field of the e-commerce platform market where Flipkart acquired myntra.com for around 2200 crores. Myntra.com shareholders accepted the proposal for the acquisition by the Flipkart but the directors or the owners of myntra.com Mukesh Bansal and Ashutosh Lawania have not accepted the share transfer but asked for the cash payment of the same. Others got the stock in the Flipkart parent company in Singapore. According to external sources, myntra.com owners got an average consideration of 427 crores in exchange of the ownership of their shareholding the myntra.com

According to external sources, Mukesh Bansal has again acquired some shares of myntra.com and now he is eligible for coming in the board meetings and guide the shareholders for the future prospects of the company. He was also elected the Marketing chief in Flipkart. It is to be noticed that both the companies Flipkart and Myntra are working separately and there is nothing common for the operating of the same as Flipkart sells a huge variety of products while the former ones is only associated with the apparels department.

The biggest investor of Flipkart.com – Tiger Global has invested around 700 Million Dollars in the company which is a huge amount which shows a great sign of trust in the company by the angel investors and which is much higher as compared to the investment done by Tiger Global in Facebook and Google.
