IPO-Bound Ecom Express Likely To Sell Majority Stakes To Amazon
Logistics startup Ecom Express which was gearing for its INR 4,860 Cr initial public offering, is reportedly in talks to sell majority of its stake to ecommerce giant Amazon. This alleged move comes at a time when Indian startups have put on hold their plans to list on the public market, as the market has been volatile in the backdrop of the economic downturn. As per media reports, Ecom Express is likely to sell 51% of its stakes to Amazon for roughly $500 Mn. It has to be noted that Amazon doesn’t have its in-house logistics partner in India.
