Berlin, 20 September 2017 - Delivery Hero Group ("Delivery Hero"), the leading global online food ordering and delivery marketplace, today announced it has agreed to acquire the remaining shares in Foodfly, a fast-growing Korean food delivery platform based in Seoul. Before the transaction, Delivery Hero already held a fully diluted stake of 21 percent in Fly&Company Inc. operating the Foodfly business. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Foodfly operates a food delivery marketplace with own delivery service, allowing it to add restaurants to its platform that do not offer deliver services themselves. Currently Foodfly maintains partnerships with 1,700 restaurants in Seoul. These services will allow Delivery Hero in Korea, currently operating under the Yogiyo brand and the Baedaltong brand, to provide additional restaurant choices to the consumer.

Foodfly was founded in 2011 and is managed by CEO Eunseon Lim. The entire management team will stay on board going forward.

Niklas Östberg, CEO of Delivery Hero, said: "We know the Foodfly team for two years and are impressed by their achievements. We believe in strong local teams and believe that the Foodfly services complement our offering for Korean consumers."

Eunseon Lim, CEO of Foodfly: "We are excited to join forces with Delivery Hero and look forward to exploring the future of food delivery as part of the global leader."

Management Interview

mic AG: „Lassen Sie sich überraschen!“

Neustart für die mic AG: Mit frischem Kapital will die Münchner Beteiligungsgesellschaft neue Wachstumsfelder in den Bereichen Blockchain und Fintech erschließen: „Mit einer großen Gesellschaft in der Softwareentwicklung im Blockchain-Bereich bin ich in konkreten Verhandlungen“, verrät mic-Vorstand Andreas Empl im Interview mit Financial.de. Die mic-Aktie sieht er weit unter Wert gehandelt: „Dem jetzigen Portfoliowert von über 20 Mio. Euro steht eine Börsenbewertung von nur rund 10 Mio. Euro gegenüber.“
