As the MapmyIndia IPO is set to open on December 9, chip-making giant Qualcomm is likely to witness nearly 20 times returns against its investment into the digital mapping startup.

The US-based chipmaker will offload all of its current holding of 5.07% or 2,701,407 equity shares.

Qualcomm earlier held 8.48% stake in the company, however on November 25, it sold a part of its shares to the MapMyIndia chairman and managing director Rakesh Kumar Verma. PhonePe and Zenrin also transferred a part of the shareholding to Verma, the RHP showed.
