Snapdeal is amidst the highly anticipated merger with Flipkart. The deal is expected to close in July but with recent development, it might be delayed. PremjiInvest has raised concerned over the deal. The prime point has been the differential payments, which are seen as an attempt to woo Snapdeal investors and the founders who have to agree to a vastly lowered valuation. Under the proposed terms, early investors, like Kalaari Capital and Nexus Venture Partners, would receive $60 million in addition to their new equity in Flipkart, while founders, Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal, would get a combined $30 million as per the report by Bloomberg.
