Furthermore, Walmart has shed some light on its plans to come out with an initial public offering (IPO) for Flipkart.
U.S. retail giant Walmart is looking to retain Flipkart co-founder Binny Bansal and other minority investors such as Tiger Global for at least four years, promising that it will protect the valuation of their shareholding and offer them the potential upside of taking the company public. For at least two years following closing of the transactions, two of the Walmart-appointed directors won't be affiliated with Walmart.

"Shareholders agreement would expire upon the consummation of the IPO, whether initiated by the board or the minority stockholders", it added. The right of first refusal for the Minority Shareholders will expire if Walmart owns 85% of the outstanding shares of Flipkart. If the drag along right is exercised, each Minority Shareholder must be entitled to sell all of its shares in the proposed transaction.
