Can Zomato Break Even?
Delhi, 22 July 2017 Much has changed since last May for Zomato and its founder Deepinder Goyal. That was the month when HSBC Securities & Capital Markets slashed the restaurant search & discovery venture's valuation by half, to $500 million. For one, Goyal is no longer keen on a $1 billion valuation; he'd rather have $1 billion in revenues. For another, although Zomato is still in the red, losses are coming down. And Goyal questions the need to continuously raise funds. Zomato, he points out, last raised money in September 2015. "We have enough money in the bank…we are not dying," he thunders. For somebody who once proudly remarked that there are enough analysts, VCs, and founders who called Zomato 'the only defensible Indian unicorn,' the term conjures nothing but disdain now. In its next issue of The Economic Times Magazine, read more about Zomato's quest to break even. To book your copy, sms ETMS to 58888, or speak to your nearest vendor.

The Chinese Invasion in the Indian Marketplace
Delhi, 15 July 2017 On the border, India is trying to ward off Chinese aggression. In the cold Himalayan plateau, temperatures have shot up as an old political rivalry heats up. India and China are sparring over the Chicken’s Neck – a small piece of land where three countries (the third is Bhutan) converge and which connects India’s north-eastern states to the rest of the country. Shrill calls for a boycott of Chinese goods are getting louder as the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and its affiliate, the Swadeshi Jagran Manch, joining in and social media networks amplify the noise. But deep inside India, in homes and in markets, in the economy and in trade, Chinese dominance is a reality. “Even though lopsided, bilateral trade has grown well. Political differences have not impacted it,” says D K Joshi, chief economist, CRISIL. In its next issue of The Economic Times Magazine, read more about the Chinese invasion and cries for a boycott.

Why OYO may be SoftBank’s Darkest Horse in India
Delhi, 23 June 2017 While most of SoftBank's investments in India have little to write home about, one or two giant winners will be more than adequate for bumper returns from its entire India hand, even if the rest prove to be duds. The billion-dollar question of course, is which one is going to be the winner, and which ones will be the flops. Cash burn, though, have today become two four-letter words, as funding dries up and investors yearn for the colour black. And, back in Gurgaon, OYO Rooms founder Ritesh Agarwal seems to have toned down his unbridled aggression after learning from some mistakes. Justin Wilson, Operating Partner at SoftBank, sounds optimistic about the progress made by OYO. Ritesh and his team, says Wilson, are not just addressing accommodation standards in India, but are also elevating the hospitality experience for the budget traveller. In its next issue of The Economic Times Magazine, read more about OYO’s Plan to get into the Black. To book your copy, sms ETMS to 58888, or speak to your nearest vendor.
