Leading e-commerce platform for pre-owned vehicles CARS24 on Monday said it has raised $400 million (around Rs 3,040 crore) from various financial institutions.
The company said it has closed a $400 million round of funding including a $300 million Series G equity round alongside $100 million debt from diversified financial institutions.
This round is CARS24's third in just over a year and values the used cars e-commerce player at $3.3 billion about double the valuation from its previous round in September 2021, it noted.
The Series G equity round was led by return investor Alpha Wave Global (formerly known as Falcon Edge Capital) along with participation from other existing investors, CARS24 stated.
CARS24 raised a cumulative debt-funding of $100 million across India, Australia, and the UAE.
“Today's news is just another step in CARS24's journey; we're in it for the long haul, and we look forward to continuing our work of creating a frictionless consumer experience for used car customers,” CARS24 Co-founder and CEO Vikram Chopra noted.
CARS24 has aggressive plans for 2022 and beyond, and the company cannot wait to put this investment to work, he added.
