Accel, the first venture investor in Flipkart, remains the second-largest shareholder after New York-based hedge fund Tiger Global Management following the deal, the Economic Times reported.

Flipkart, Accel and Qatar Investment Authority did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

“From time to time, Accel Partners, globally, has sold a small fraction of our holdings in some of our portfolio companies, as secondary transactions,” Subrata Mitra, partner at Accel Partners in India told the newspaper in an emailed reply.

“All we can confirm to you right now is that no such transaction is in process.”
