The huge buzz around the launch of Zomato’s IPO today seems to have stressed out Deepinder Goyal, the founder of the app that leads the Indian market in food delivery and restaurant aggregation.
“Just ordered a triple breakfast @zomato. Stress eating,” Goyal tweeted on Wednesday morning.
An hour after his first tweet, Goyal tweeted a smiley, wordless.
Mr Goyal’s tweets saw reactions pour in.
“Make it large Deepi ! Best wishes for superb listing. Rooting for you man,” tweeted PayTM founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma.
“All the best. My stress eating is aided by Zomato. Help with a share handout to special customers like me who share your coping behavior, to ease my discomfort," wrote Monica Jasuja, Vice President, Product Management, Mobile Financial Solutions at Comviva.
The Zomato IPO is the single largest share sale after the Rs10,355 crore IPO from SBI Cards and Payments services last year.
Zomato the first Indian unicorn start-up to feature on the bourses.
The company fixed its price band at Rs72–76 per share at the face value of Rs1 each. Ahead of Wednesday’s IPO, the anchor portion of the offer opened on Tuesday and Zomato raked in over Rs4,196 crore from 186 anchor investors.
Among the anchor investors are JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Tiger Global Investment Fund and Blackrock.
