Blume Venture Advisors Key Developments

Ola Close To Finalize Acquisition of TaxiForSure

ANI Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (Ola) is in advanced stages of finalizing a deal to buy Serendipity Infolabs Pvt. Ltd. (TaxiForSure). The deal could be worth $200 million in stock. The deal is expected to close later this week. "The deal is being signed at about $200 million in mostly stock-swap with a swapping ratio of about one Ola share for seven TaxiForSure shares," an investor in TaxiForSure said. Ola and TaxiForSure will continue to operate as separate brands, at least for a while, according to one person aware of the developments. "After the transition period is over, TaxiForSure founders who will be mostly paid in cash are likely to exit the company. That is the agreement," the TaxiForSure investor said. Accel Partners, Helion Venture Partners, LLC, Bessemer Venture Partners and Blume Venture Advisors will roll over their shares into the combined entity and take a small portion of the consideration in cash. "Most of the shares held by TFS investors are getting rolled over to Ola as they did not agree to a complete share deal. Around 20% of the deal is cash," an investor in Ola said. The Times of India added that TaxiForSure and Ola did not reply to email queries from ET.
