Food delivery company Zomato will hit Dalal Street, with its initial public offering on July 14, as per its red herring prospectus.

The company is planning to raise Rs 9,375 crore through its IPO which comprises a fresh issuance of Rs 9,000 crore and an offer for sale of Rs 375 crore by shareholder Info Edge.
