Online food delivery platform Zomato raised $250 million from five different investors as part of a primary round led by Kora Management. The latest round took Zomato to a post-money valuation of $5.4 billion. Info Edge, which holds a stake in Zomato, disclosed the round in a regulatory filing on Monday.

As part of the round, Zomato raised $115 million from Kora Management. Funds or accounts advised or sub-advised by Fidelity Management & Research Company and its affiliates pumped in $55 million. The company also raised $50 million  from Tiger Global, $20 million from Bow Wave Capital Management, and  $10 million from Dragoneer Investment Group.

That round had seen investments coming from ten investors, including Tiger Global, Kora, Luxor, Fidelity, D1 Capital, Baillie Gifford, Mirae, and Steadview. Before that, in November 2020, a total of $195 million (₹1,452.4 crore) was invested into the company. In October 2020, Kora Investments pumped in $52 million into the company. In September 2020, MacRitchie Investments, a subsidiary unit of Singapore-based Temasek Holdings, had invested $60 million.
