Exclusive Singapore Zilingo debtors withdraw their loans after missing payments.


SINGAPORE, May 13 (Reuters) – Debtors of fashion tech startup Zilingo in question have decided to withdraw their entire loan after the Singapore-based company fails to meet its payment obligations and has appointed a financial advisor to evaluate the options. The board of directors said Friday.

The seven-year-old company’s board, backed by key investors, sacked CEO and co-founder Ankiti Bose in March, awaiting investigation by the independent company they hired.

Privately held Zilingo, backed by investors including Sequoia Capital India and Singaporean state-owned investor Temasek, announced in April an investigation into what it described as a “problem” and an investigation into sources citing the company’s “accounting practices”. read more
