Last year, Snapdeal, had raised $627 million funding from Japan’s SoftBank making a total sum of over $1 billion funding so far.

“We have enough capital. In fact, we have used a fraction of the amount that we have raised. We don’t have to raise money now just because it is fashionable,” Snapdeal co-founder and CEO Kunal Bahl.

As per the latest rumors, the investment talks between Alibaba and Snapdeal broke off over valuation – Snapdeal was looking at $5Bn+ valuation, while Alibaba wasn’t keen beyond $4Bn valuation.
