The one and only listed e-commerce firm in the country, Infibeam is said to have made an offer of roughly USD 700 million for Snapdeal in the last week.

Snapdeal promoters are in talks with multiple prospective buyers for the acquisition of the troubled online marketplace. On the other hand, the company’s largest investors, SoftBank Group Corporation is pushing for a sale to the company’s rival, Flipkart, reported a leading news agency.
 
The one and only listed e-commerce firm in the country, Infibeam is said to have made an offer of roughly USD 700 million for Snapdeal in the last week. This bid is lower than Flipkart’s USD 850 million offer. Experts believe that if the sale of Snapdeal to either Flipkart or Infibeam does not go through, then the company is likely to stay as an independent firm and start cost cutting through the ways of big layoffs and slashing business size.
 
Snapdeal has a very low cash reserves which may get a boost by selling its digital payments arm, Freecharge. Freecharge is already close to be bought by Axis Bank, reported a leading news agency.
