Flipkart Ltd announced on Thursday that it acquired a 100% stake in Walmart India Pvt Ltd that operates local cash-and-carry business. The electronics retail company had also launched its new digital marketplace called Flipkart Wholesale.

“With the launch of Flipkart Wholesale, we will now extend our capabilities across technology, logistics, and finance to small businesses across the country.

Walmart India employees would join the Flipkart Group as part of the deal while it continues to operate through its network of 28 stores and e-commerce operations.
