E-commerce platform Tiki has raised $20 million from telecom operator Taiwan Mobile in return for a 2.7 percent stake in Tiki Global.

The Series E funding deal values the Vietnamese company at $740 million, with Tiki having secured $94 million in the series within this month alone, according to Deal Street Asia.

Before the Series E, foreign investors held a 49.4 percent stake in Tiki. The biggest shareholder among them is Chinese e-commerce giant JD.com with a 18.2 percent stake.

Tiki had recently raised VND1 trillion ($43.9 million) in bonds with a coupon rate of 13 percent a year.

The company posted a loss of VND4 billion last year.
