AdvertisementTop executives and founders of logistics company Delhivery are set to get multi-crore hikes in their salaries pretty soon, the Gurugram-based startup revealed in its draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) filed earlier on Tuesday.
Delhivery — which was valued at $3 billion in March 2021 — intends to raise ₹7,400 crore ($1 billion) with its IPO. The proceeds of this issue will be used to strengthen the company’s technology stack, network and operations.
The company’s DRHP has revealed that Delhivery has planned out appraisal for three of its top executives — Cofounder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sahil Barua, Chief Business Officer (CBO) Sandeep Kumar Barasia and Kapil Bharati, who is the cofounder and chief technology officer (CTO) of Delhivery.
Barua and Bharati’s new salary will be in the range of ₹2.5 crore to ₹10 crore. Meanwhile, Barasia is scheduled to get an increment in the range of ₹4 crore to ₹12 crore.
The appraisal does not include gratuity, medical insurance and other benefits the company offers. There will be additional benefits offered to the three executives on top of this.
Delhivery cofounder’s salary and remuneration have increased in the first quarter of FY2022. Both the cofounders’ — Barua and Bharati — salary for Q1 of FY2022 was nearly as much as the remuneration for the entire FY2021.
