Adding to Byju’s woes

US asset management company Baron Capital has almost halved its valuation of edtech major Byju’s.

The US-based company said that the reduction in the fair market value of its holding in Byju’s was due to recent events such as the change in the Byju’s company’s auditor, resignations of three board members, and the withdrawal of Covid-19-related tailwinds for the sector.

Baron Capital has slashed the edtech’s unicorn valuation by 44.6 per cent to $11.7 billion as of June 30, from $21.2 billion as of March 31.

Recently, in June, Byju’s saw its three key investor board members stepping down due to differences with the founder Byju Raveendran over operational issues.
