Uber Technologies is likely to sell a 7.8% stake in food delivery firm Zomato through a $373-million block deal on Wednesday, according to a source familiar with the matter and a document seen by Reuters.
The offer size of $373 million was based on the lower end of a Rs 48-Rs 54 price range set for the block deal, the document showed.
BofA Securities is the sole bookrunner for the deal.
