Walmart, Amazon to invest Rs 2,000 cr in India

Walmart and Amazon, two of the leading retailers globally, are planning to invest more than Rs 2,000 crore to increase their network in India, according to media reports.

Amazon will be infusing Rs 1,696 crore through a rights issue into Amazon Seller Services, taking the total investment of the company in Amazon Seller Services to Rs 4,800 core in the past 12 months. The online retailer expects India to become its largest market outside the US surpassing UK, Germany, and Japan.

Walmart will also add funds valued at Rs 360 crore, according to an ROC filing. The retail giant plans to expand by opening about 50 stores in India at a time when it recently announced the closing of 269 stores in the US as a part of an exercise to “actively manage” its portfolio of assets.

Walmart is learnt to be exploring ways to tie up with leading Indian e-commerce companies such as Flipkart, Snapdeal, ShopClues, Grofers and Bigbasket to tap the growing online retail opportunity.

Goldman Sachs has projected that Indian e-commerce will be a $100 billion market by 2020, from a single-digit figure now. (HO)
