Paytm IPO to make 350 current, ex-employees millionaires
The Rs 18,300 crore initial public offering (IPO) of Paytm-owner One97 Communications, a digital firm, has reportedly made 350 current and previous employees millionaires. These employees will individually now have a net worth of at least Rs 1 crore, according to a Reuters report.
The recent share sale has made Paytm the largest fintech IPO in the Asia Pacific Region. The IPO was open for subscription from November 8 to 10. The shares of the company are expected to list on the BSE and NSE next week. After the recent spike in valuation, several employees sold shares to the tune of around Rs 100 crore.
“Paytm has always been a generous paymaster. Vijay (Sharma, the Paytm founder) has always wanted that people make money, they move up in life”, an employee said.
Around 47 current employees working in the company, offloaded shares in the parent company recently. They wanted to explore this opportunity to use their employee stock options as Paytm’s valuation reached $4.8 billion last year.

The other new entrants will be SRF, Tata Power, Mindtree, Godrej Properties, IRCTC, Mphasis, Bharat Electronics and Bajaj Holdings. This follows the November semi-annual index review by global index services provider MSCI.
The global index provider MSCI (Morgan Stanley Capital International) rebalances its indices semi-annually and quarterly.
The changes will be implemented after the November 30 close. Analysts are expecting an inflow of about $1.4 billion from passive funds into these nine stocks. After the change, the count of Indian stocks in the MSCI Standard Index will increase to 108 from 101.
