Temasek of Singapore and Fidelity, a large financial services firm in the United States, invest $200 million in Lenskart through a secondary share sale, putting the company at $5 billion.

Lenskart, an eyewear retailer, has raised $200 million in secondary funding from Temasek and Fidelity Management & Research Company.

Temasek is doubling down on its current investment in Lenskart, while Fidelity has joined the cap table.

According to Avendus financing, which served as the transaction’s advisor, Lenskart has raised about $1 billion in financing in the previous 18 months as a result of this acquisition.

Lenskart is thought to have been valued at more than $5 billion during the secondary fundraising.

The firm, led by Peyush Bansal, was previously valued at $4.5 billion during a $100 million investment round in June last year.
