New Delhi, Dec 8 (IANS): Shares worth $135 million (nearly Rs 1,125 crore) in food delivery platform Zomato exchanged hands via a block deal on Friday, with Japanese investment giant SoftBank being the likely seller.

Around 1.06 per cent stake of the company or 9.35 crore shares exchanged hands in the deal during the early session.

SoftBank’s SVF Growth was the likely seller, which offloaded another 1.06 per cent stake in Zomato.
