DFDL representing Eatigo on its expansion into India

DFDL Thailand and DFDL Singapore are proud of their role in recently assisting the rising restaurant reservation platform Eatigo, in relation to its ongoing expansion into India. Eatigo’s expansion was facilitated by its asset acquisition of a local firm in India, the first of its kind by the company. Prior to this, DFDL had assisted Eatigo in obtaining series B investment from TripAdvisor, the widely known global travel site.

The transaction was intricate and complex, considering the assets involved, which included intellectual property, a significant number of employees, not to mention existing contracts with more than 500 different clients.

The rollout of its services in India follows hot on the heels of its successful entry into five key markets in South East Asia: Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines. Eatigo now provides discounted reservation services across 2,000 restaurants throughout the region. DFDL’s legal and tax services were crucial to establishing Eatigo in each of these countries.

Having rapidly established a firm foothold in six countries, Eatigo is projected to reach a valuation of USD 100 million.
