Zetwerk, a B2B marketplace, has raised $210 million in a new round of funding, according to a recent regulatory filing. The funding round was led by Greenoaks Capital, which invested in Rs 543.8 crore (~$72.5 million). This round will also feature participation from existing investors D1 Capital, ICONIQ, Avenir Zetwerk Investors, IIFL, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Steadview Capital.
The Bengaluru-based manufacturing services marketplace issued 41,816 Series F Compulsorily Convertible Preference Shares (CCPS) at an issue price of Rs 3,75,128, for a total consideration of slightly more than Rs 1,568 crore (~$209.51 million) as part of the transaction. Zetwerk’s valuation, according to reports, will jump between $2.5 billion to $2.68 billion as a result of the latest round.
Lightspeed Venture Partners’ shareholding in Zetwerk has increased to 6.10 percent after the latest round of funding. The development was first reported by media platform Inc42. However, Zetwerk has yet to officially announce fundraise.
The regulatory filing also suggests that the proceeds will be used to fulfill Zetwerk’s capital requirement. The fresh infusion of funds would be used for expansion and general corporate objectives, including capital expenditure.
