PharmEasy’s parent company API Holdings became the first Indian startup to acquire a publicly listed company, after it acquired A Velumani-led diagnostics chain Thyrocare Technologies for ₹4,546 crore ($612 million) in June. This acquisition has opened doors for the seven-year-old startup to list on the stock exchange directly.

The company is looking at a dual listing or a reverse listing option, co-founder Siddharth Shah told Business Insider in a recent interview. A dual listing is a corporate structure in which two companies function as a single operating business through a legal equalisation agreement.

A reverse listing, on the other hand, is acquisition of a private company by an existing public company, so that the private company can bypass the lengthy and complex process of going public.
