PepsiCo Invests $175 Million in Instacart Ahead of E-Commerce Company’s Proposed IPO

Aug. 30, 2023
Food and beverage giant throws its support behind online grocery tech company in the wake of improved financial results in 2023.

Online grocery tech company Instacart disclosed in a Form S-1 filed with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) this week that PepsiCo has agreed to purchase $175 million of the company’s Series A redeemable convertible preferred stock, or the Series A Preferred Stock.

The investment by PepsiCo comes ahead of Instacart’s proposed initial public offering (IPO), which was announced by the company Aug. 25, 2023, in a news release. Instacart intends to list its common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol “CART,” the release says. Reports say that Instacart could list its shares in September.

PepsiCo’s support comes at a time when Instacart is experiencing resurgent success, with revenue for the six months ended June 30 registering at $1.48 billion — a 31% jump from the same period in 2022 — and net income of $242 million compared to a $74 million loss a year ago over the same six months, according to reports.
