As part of the deal, Zomato will also raise $150 million from Ant, previously known as Alipay Financial Services.

Info Edge will hold a 30.91 percent stake in Zomato after the deal closes by April 15.

Alibaba said earlier on Thursday that it would buy a 33 percent stake in Ant Financial in exchange for certain intellectual property rights owned by the ecommerce giant.
