The Walmart-Flipkart deal will renew global investor faith in Indian startups as it has given fantastic returns to those investors who backed Flipkart over the years and stayed till now. The deal has valued Flipkart at $ 20bn (Rs 1.35 lakh crore) and Walmart is paying over Rs 1 lakh crore to acquire 77% stake in the company (although there is confusion over whether the biggest shareholder, SoftBank of Japan, will eventually sell its 22.3% stake). Where will this Rs 1 lakh crore go?

Let us begin with the investors who stayed with Flipkart over the years. Accel was the first big investor in the company and had put in $ 100 million since 2008/2009. It took home between $ 800 million to $ 1bn. That translates to nearly Rs 6750 crore.

Tiger Global was one of the biggest early investors. It invested close to $ 1bn or Rs 6700 crore since 2010 in different rounds of investing. It sold 17% stake for $ 3.3bn or Rs 22275 crore.

Naspers got $ 2.2 bn or Rs 14850 crore for the $ 600 million it invested in 2012.

SoftBank is reported to be in two minds about selling its 22.3% which can fetch it $ 4.46bn or Rs 30105 crore. It had invested $ 2.5bn or Rs 14800 crore just 9 months back.

Employee-held ESOPS will get around $ 1 million or Rs 6.73 crore.

Co-founder Sachin Bansal has exited after selling his remaining 5.5% stake entirely, fetching him Rs 6700 crore.

The other co-founder Binny Bansal will remain CEO. He has sold partial stake for Rs 700 crore and has retained 4.24% that is estimated at Rs 6000 crore.

Apart from this, Rs 13500 crore is being invested as fresh equity.

Phew, there you have it, the arithmetic of Rs 1 lakh crore.
