Pavel Durov Refused from External Investments in Telegram Offered by Western Funds

Telegram turned down an investment offer from a consortium of Western funds. The social network was estimated at $ 30 billion. In recent years, this is the first external assessment of Telegram, which became known. This is reported by The Bell with reference to two interlocutors familiar with the situation.
      It is noted that the proposal for funding was made at the end of last week. As part of the deal under discussion, it was about the purchase of a 5-10% stake. Earlier it became known that Durov is looking for $ 1 billion for Telegram due to the upcoming settlements with TON investors. In addition, the search for money was accelerated by the fact that Telegram's audience began to grow sharply against the background of the renewal of WhatsApp's user agreement. In 2015, Durov estimated the possible cost of the messenger at $ 3-4 billion.
      In the first week of 2021, it exceeded $ 500 million.
