Parent company Walmart happy with Flipkart
Flipkart’s parent company Walmart recently said during its earnings call that it is happy to see the e-tailer expand on its positive contribution margin. Walmart CFO John David said that the investment into Flipkart’s infrastructure over the last three years is paying off.
“In India, Flipkart continued its strong momentum through Diwali and other seasonal events. We are particularly pleased to see Flipkart’s positive contribution margin expanding. PhonePe’s recent valuation that Doug talked about was supported by annualised TPV, reaching more than $950 billion, about 50% higher than just one year ago, while also exceeding more than 4 billion monthly transactions,” said Walmart CEO Doug McMillon
Late last year, both Flipkart and PhonePe formally announced their separation and the latter has raised $450 million in new funding since then.
