Walmart has reached an agreement on buying the stakes of New York-based investment firm Tiger Global Management, South African media conglomerate Naspers, venture capital firm Accel and China's Tencent Holdings, they said. Flipkart founders, Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal, may sell a part of their stake in the company, they told ET. Currently, all the above shareholders together hold over 55% stake in Flipkart.

Another major point in the deal is the agreement between eBay and Flipkart.
"Long-term partnerships have transformed the way India buys mobile phones". As such, the partnership between Walmart and Flipkart already seems like a match made in heaven.
