The Zomato IPO opened today, but 'It is easier to clear UPSC than to get an IPO allotment,' lamented a Twitter user.
Zomato founder Deepinder Goyal tweeted that he had ordered triple breakfast and had been stress eating after the food delivery’s Rs 9,375-crore Initial Public Offering (IPO) opened for subscription on July 14. The first few hours of the IPO -- which is open to the public for three days -- saw a meme fest on social media with Kotak and Zerodha joining in.
The CEO’s first tweet coincided with the opening of the Zomato IPO. To Twittterati's collective glee, he posted, "Just ordered a triple breakfast @zomato. Stress eating."
Just ordered a triple breakfast @zomato. Stress eating 🤯😬
Another tweet from the Zomato team read, “Who all are applying ghee to their paranthas this morning.” The official Twitter handle had highlighted “who all are applying” by using a large font, while the remaining sentence had a much smaller font.
who all are applying ᵍʰᵉᵉ ᵗᵒ ᵗʰᵉⁱʳ ᵖᵃʳᵃⁿᵗʰᵃˢ ᵗʰⁱˢ ᵐᵒʳⁿⁱⁿᵍ
Another firm that is handling the IPO apart from Kotak Securities is Zerodha who according to Uddalak Das @ninja_writer21 mentioned, “I heard your servers are having a hard time handing #ZomatoIPO :-)”
Chandra R. Srikant @chandrasrikant in her handle posted, “We have the picture of the day!!! Man of the moment @zomato founder and CEO Deepinder Goyal with first investor InfoEdge founder Sanjeev Bikhchandani and early investor Mohit Bhatnagar from Sequoia Capital. Taken just a while ago.”
