Further to the announcement earlier this day, 16 September 2019, Kinnevik AB (publ) today announced that Kinnevik Internet 1 AB (“Kinnevik”) has completed the placement of 13.13 million shares (the “Placing Shares”) in Zalando SE (the “Company”) to institutional investors by way of an accelerated bookbuilding process (the “Transaction”). Kinnevik’s gross proceeds from the Transaction amount to EUR 558m. The Placing Shares represent 5.2 percent of the Company's issued share capital and constitute 16.7 percent of Kinnevik’s shareholding in the Company.

Credit Suisse Securities (Europe) Limited and Goldman Sachs International acted as Joint Bookrunners in the Transaction. The Company will not receive any proceeds from the Transaction.

Following settlement of the Transaction, Kinnevik will hold 65.3 million shares in the Company, representing 25.8 percent of the Company's issued share capital. The trade date for the Transaction is 17 September 2019 and settlement is expected to occur on 19 September 2019.

In connection with the Transaction, Kinnevik has committed to a lock-up period of six months in respect of its remaining shareholding in the Company, subject to customary exceptions and waivers by the Joint Bookrunners.

Kinnevik’s CEO, Georgi Ganev, commented:

“Kinnevik is proud to be a partner in Zalando’s journey towards becoming Europe’s leading fashion destination. As a result of its unparalleled success since our first investment in 2010, Zalando has grown into Kinnevik’s largest asset. The decision to divest a small portion of our shareholding – we remain Zalando’s largest shareholder – should be seen in the light of our ambition to maintain our pace of investment to continue evolving our portfolio towards a larger share of private companies. We have the fullest confidence that Zalando’s platform strategy will allow the company to better serve its customers by leveraging its unique capabilities in technology and logistics, and Zalando fits squarely with our continued intent to be the leading publicly listed growth-focused investor in Europe.”
