The price band of the offer has been fixed at INR 72 to INR 76 per equity share. Bids can be made for a minimum of 195 equity shares and in multiples of 195 equity shares thereafter.

The IPO consists of a fresh issue aggregating up to INR 90,000 million (fresh issue) and an offer for sale by Info Edge (India) Limited (Info Edge or the Selling Shareholder) aggregating up to INR 3,750 million (offer for sale, and together with the Fresh Issue, the Offer).

This offer includes a reservation of up to 6,500,000 equity shares for purchase by eligible employees, on a proportionate basis and such portion not exceeding 5 per cent of the post-offer equity share capital of the company (the "employee reservation portion').

Last week Info Edge, which owns online classified recruiter Naukri.com, intimated exchanges that it had reduced its offer for sale size by half to INR 375 crore in Zomato's initial public offering, INR 750 crore earlier.
