Walmart-owned PhonePe, which was hived off as a separate entity from Flipkart, is working on an initial public offering (IPO) by 2023 at a valuation of $7-10 billion.

PhonePe is planning a separate listing in the US or India, depending on the market conditions, according to a Business Standard report. Flipkart, too, is planning a US listing by 2022, the report added.

US retail giant Walmart acquired a 77 percent stake in Bengaluru-based Flipkart in May 2018.

"The Walmart leadership has told PhonePe and Flipkart about building the 'path to profitability' and PhonePe has set a target to be profitable by 2022," a source told the publication.

Moneycontrol could not independently verify the story.
