Ola Electric on Tuesday said it has appointed auto veteran Yongsung Kim as Head of Global Sales and Distribution, overseeing India and international markets.

A veteran with Hyundai Motor and Kia, Kim brings to the new role 35 years of global automotive sales experience from around the world, including North America, Europe, the UK, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and India where he spent several years, first with Hyundai Motor and then with Kia.

Kim will lead both the domestic and international strategy for sales and go-to-market for Ola Electric as it gears up to launch its first electric scooter across India and multiple international markets including Europe and the UK, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia.

“I am excited to have Yongsung join our team at Ola Electric and look forward to collaborating with him as we launch our range of electric products around the world,” Bhavish Aggarwal, Chairman and Group CEO, Ola, said in a statement.

“His expertise in sales, distribution and service will be critical for our global expansion and for bringing our advanced, innovative electric products to our customers.”

To manufacture the scooter, Ola is building a factory with its first phase expected to be operational this summer and the full factory ready by next year.

Built over 500 acres, the 10-million annual capacity “Ola Futurefactory” will produce a vehicle every two seconds at full capacity, the company said.

“I am very excited to join Ola Electric and its team to develop a winning strategy for India and global sales for its range of EV products, beginning with the Ola Scooter,” Kim said on his appointment.

Zomato shares decline 9%, market cap falls below 1L cr

Shares of online food aggregator Zomato declined 9 per cent intraday on Friday.

Analysts are linking the decline with unsupportive valuations. Over the past one-month period, Zomato shares fell nearly 18 per cent.

Listed in July 2021, Zomato shares are, however, up more than 50 per cent from its IPO issue price of Rs 76. On Friday’s closing, it was at Rs 114 per share.

“The costs have escalated due to the tax imposed on the aggregator, along with the fact that the lockdown is also not currently happening, which also appears to be a weakness,” said Ravi Singhal, Vice Chairman at GCL Securities.

With Friday’s losses, the company’s market capitalisation fell below the 1 lakh crore-mark, NSE data showed.

According to Ravi Singh, Vice President and Head of Research, Share India Securities: “The technical setup in Zomato stock is in bearish formation on intraday and daily which may drag the stock up to Rs 112-110 levels in the near term.

“The valuations of the company are also not supporting the growth. Zomato is facing tough competition from Swiggy in many ways, mainly having a thinner Metro restaurant network and density versus Swiggy. We recommend investors to maintain the sell position in the stock.”
