Siddharth Shah, founder of online pharmacy chain PharmEasy, which recently acquired Thyrocare, has bought an apartment in Mumbai’s Khar West for Rs 40 crore, documents accessed by Zapkey.com showed.
The sixth-floor apartment is spread across an area of 3963 sq ft and comes with three car parking slots, the documents showed. While the agreement was signed on March 31, the last day of the stamp duty waiver in Maharashtra, the property was registered on August 20, 2021.

PharmEasy was in the news recently for its acquisition of Thyrocare and plans to launch an IPO worth $9 billion.
In June this year, PharmEasy raised an additional $300 million from its existing investors, largely to fund its acquisition of Thyrocare. API Holdings is the parent company of PharmEasy.
API Holdings picked up a 66.1 percent stake in Thyrocare Technologies from its founder A Velumani for Rs 4,546 crore (about ₹1,300 per share). This was also the first-ever acquisition of a listed company (Thyrocare), by an Indian unicorn.
This was PharmEasy’s third acquisition after Ascent Health and Wellness and e-pharmacy firm Medlife.

The apartment spread across an area of 5,254 sq ft was registered on July 30, 2021.
