Accel, Tiger Global to exit Flipkart

Accel and Tiger Global are in discussions over the sale of their remaining stake in Indian e-commerce firm Flipkart to US retail giant and majority shareholder Walmart, in a deal valued at around $1.5 billion, according to a report by the Economic Times.

Both companies were early backers of Flipkart with Accel now holding a stake of just over 1% of the business and Tiger Global about 4%.
