    Zomato IPO Listing; a symbol of India’s vibrant capital markets

    Zomato IPO listing created a frenzy in the Indian stock market as the stock on listing got close to a 66% premium on the listing. The stock market debut turned Zomato Ltd. founder Deepinder Goyal into a poster boy for India’s fledgling startup scene, pushing his fortune close to the $1 billion mark.

    Goyal is worth $650 million based on his current 4.7% stake in Zomato, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. He also owns more than 368 million options that vest over the next six years, which if exercised would almost double his stake in the company, which now has a market capitalization of $13.3 billion.

    “Today is a big day for us,” Goyal said in a blog posting on Friday. “But we couldn’t have gotten here without the incredible efforts of India’s entire internet ecosystem.”
