Shares of food delivery platform Zomato hit a new low for the second consecutive day on Tuesday, 26 July, after slipping more than 10 percent.

This comes after the one-year freeze on all its pre-IPO (initial public offering) shareholding came to an end.

The shares of the company decreased to an all-time low of Rs 41.40 on Tuesday, down by 13 percent, on the BSE.

In the last two days, the stocks had fallen by 23 percent from Rs 53.65 on Friday, as per Business Standard.

Meanwhile, those who invested in Zomato have lost more than Rs 1 trillion amid the sharp decline from its all-time high price.

Further, the market capitalisation of the company eroded by Rs 1.01 trillion to Rs 32,488 in intra-day trading on Tuesday.

As of 1:52 pm, the shares were down by 12 percent to Rs 41.90. Comparatively, in the S&P BSE Sensex, it saw a fall by 0.63 percent.
