Flipkart gained $700 million investment, planning to beat the competition from Amazon & Snapdeal..Qatar Investment Authority is the biggest investor this time.

investment_pic

Let's start with the company's statement first.

Flipkart, India's largest e-commerce marketplace, today announced a US $ 700 million investment with new investors: Baillie Gifford, Greenoaks Capital, Steadview Capital, T. Rowe Price Associates and Qatar Investment Authority, along with existing investors: DST Global, GIC, ICONIQ Capital and Tiger Global, who also participated in this latest financing round. As with previous funds raised, these funds will be used towards long-term strategic investments in India and to build a world-class technology company, delivering superior customer experiences. 

Flipkart Limited (incorporated at Singapore) has filed with ACRA Singapore for conversion to a Public Company. This is a mandatory procedure for all companies where the number of shareholders exceeds 50.

This filing ensures we are in compliance with the laws of Singapore and is in no way indicative of any upcoming IPO or of any corporate activity that the company is engaged in either in Singapore or any other part of the world.

Flipkart in another round of funding has raised a $700 million in funding. This time old investors like DST Global, GIC, ICONIQ Capital and Tiger Global also participated but Qatar Investment Authority was the leaper in the race with a whooping $150 million. Raising the company valuation to $11 Billion.

The emerging market of Indian ecommerce has shown a significant interest of shareholders like Greenoaks Capital, Steadview Capital and T Rowe PriceAssociates etc which participated in this latest financing round.

flipkart_banner_india

Flipkart is projecting a revenue of $4 Billion in the coming year and hence is focusing to gain a upperhand with investments. Snapdeal recently gained approximate. $650 million from Softbank which have raised the value Snapdeal to $2 billion. 

In the statement issued by the company, Flipkart has filed with ACRA Singapore for conversion to a public company. (Singapore Law states that it is mandatory to go public after having 50+ members of shareholders)  

To maintain the trust of all, the company released an statement claiming,

“This filing ensures we are in compliance with the laws of Singapore and is in no way indicative of any upcoming IPO or of any corporate activity that the company is engaged in either in Singapore or any other part of the world.” 

The Benefits of the funding

The funding is to give the company an upper hand over its competitors like Amazon, Snapdeal etc. It is also an act of display of confidence of investors in ecommerce market in India, making Flipkart as the focal point. It has also raised interest of world in the Indian ecommerce market. Also Flipkart may introduce this money in upgrading its technical branch so as to handle problems like "Big Billion Day technical Glitch".

Ramifications of this funding*

The funding has increased the valuation of the company, however it could be termed as a management hubris as functionality of the major decision of the company would now be goverened by the shareholders. The point I am trying to make here is that Mr. Bansal's decisions have made a strong company named as Flipkart through him & his team's decisions which will now be governed a bit in favor of the investors. 

Anyways, its brilliant to see a startup to grow so quickly.

Stay Sharp and Shop Smart.

Asus, after decraring its mini-PC version which are about to be launched in India, has launched a brand new Zenfone 5 Lite A502CG in India. The alter-ego of Zenfone 5 is available via Flipkart for Rs 8,999. It only comes in Black color variant.

If I have to talk about the good features of the smartphone may carry then I am skeptical about what the marketing and product team were thinking while launching this version. There are 'n' number of options available to online shoppers which do, in all sense, is better than this phone. The screen is big and the battery looks better but for that why would anyone pay this much amount of money. 

We recommend that if you are an ardent follower of ASUS and have made your mind up about the smartphone, then only go for this phone. You can also have a look on the SPICE steller, Redmi Note and LAVA win1 smartphones.

Xiaomi Redmi Note sold in yet another Flipkart flash sale, 50,000 units vanished in just 6 seconds

redminoteoutofstock

Redmi Note, one of the most awaited phablet of the year was launched in India yesterday and was up for sale for its registered users. Problems again prevailed as 3,00,000 people had to suppress their will of getting a Redmi Note even after sticking to their screens for an hour as instructed by Flipkart.

 

 

Flash sale is now becoming an headache for registered users who use to wait anxiously weeks just to grab this so called value-for-money device. 50,000 units were up for grabs and up to 350,000 registrations were made to grab a mere 50,000 units. This provides a 7 to 1 ratio as a probability to grab the handset.

As expected there was outrage in public and it was reflected on social media platforms. 

 

 

Anyways, registrations have started again for sale on 9th December. So we suggest you to read these tricks first "Tricks to get a Xiaomi in a flash sale" before participating in the first sale. And for Xiaomi India, we appreciate your disclosure on the number of units you are putting for the flash sale, but in accordance to the Indian customers, flash sales only produces the bad word of mouth. Hence it would be much clearer that you should make it on 'First come First serve' basis.

As a part of my regime, I have to present the hottest online shopping news .LAVA, a Noida based Indian handset manufacture will be launching Iris Win1, priced at Rs. 4,999 which will be exclusively available via Flipkart from Thursday onwards. This will be a stepping stone for the company because it is the first device by LAVA equipped with Windows 8.1 in it.

Also for those who could not grab a Xiaomi for themselves we decided to put forward an another option by comparing these two products for you. With this price tag we tried to find out whether this smartphone have an upper hand to the popular Xiaomi Redmi 1s. 

Rajiv Ahlawat, Director, Mobility, Microsoft India stated,

"Our deep engagement with local OEMs is one of the engines of growth for Windows Phone and we are proud of our partnership with Lava. With the Iris Win1, Windows Phone is now available to a whole new group of consumers in India, who are looking for innovation and value."

 

Below is a detailed comparision of Xiaomi and our home breed LAVA.

"We are pleased to add Iris Win1 – Windows powered device in our smartphone portfolio for consumers who are looking for Windows platform. Win1 will be exclusively launched on Flipkart.

flipkart doing problems

After Snapdeal its Flipkart.. See how this person was trapped in poor delivery system by Flipkart.com

flipkart doing problems
Earlier we have had seen a controversial delivery by Snapdeal where a person received a Vim bar and a brick instead of Samsung Galaxy he ordered.
A guy from Mysore, Karnataka got into shock when he found out that his parcel via Flikart.com feels too light and could be empty. He immediately made a video and posted it on his Facebook page.
Have a look. 

 

 

 

 

The reason for these kind of problems is the mismatch in updation of supply chain system and growth of large ecommerce company. 

It is very important for e-retailers like Flipkart, Snapdeal etc to make their logistics absolutely error free. More or less like the brilliant Dabba-wala delivery system of Mumbai.
