Zomato has fixed the IPO price at Rs 76 per share. The shares will be listed on both the BSE and NSE.

The IPO generated Rs 2.13 lakh crore, the third-highest in the history of the Indian capital market.

The Rs 9,375-crore initial public offering (IPO) of Zomato saw a high subscription of 38.35 times when it opened on July 14 and closed for subscription on July 16.

A day before the issue opened, Zomato had mobilised Rs 4,196.51 crore from 186 anchor investors. The IPO size was then reduced to Rs 5,178.49 crore from Rs 9,375 crore earlier.

Zomato has said it will utilise the net proceeds from the fresh issue for funding organic and inorganic growth initiatives (Rs 6,750 crore) and general corporate purposes.
