windeln.de plans IPO in 2015

- Listing on the regulated market (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock
Exchange envisaged
- One of the leading and fastest growing online retailers for baby and
toddler products with a revenue CAGR of 117% from 2012 to 2014
- Planned initial public offering will consist of new shares to support the
Company's future growth as well as of shares from the holdings of certain
existing shareholders
- Main selling shareholders will remain invested in the Company

Munich, 10 April 2015. windeln.de GmbH (after conversion windeln.de AG)
("windeln.de" or the "Company"), one of the leading and fastest growing
online retailers for baby, toddler and children products in Germany,
Austria and Switzerland, which has also established a successful e-commerce
business of selling baby products (mainly baby food) to customers located
in China, is preparing an initial public offering ("IPO") in Germany and
Luxembourg and private placements in certain jurisdictions outside of
Germany and Luxembourg. The Company intends to list its shares on the
regulated market (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in 2015,
subject to market conditions.

The offer is expected to consist of newly issued shares from a capital
increase amounting to approximately EUR100 million and the sale of shares
by certain existing shareholders in the amount of approximately EUR80
million, excluding potential greenshoe proceeds (to stem from an additional
capital increase) of up to 15% of the total base offering. Assuming full
exercise of the greenshoe, the total offer size would amount to
approximately EUR200 million. All main existing shareholders of windeln.de
will remain invested in the Company. The Company's current main
shareholders are DN Capital (24.3%), Acton Capital (19.5%), Goldman Sachs
(12.8%), Deutsche Bank (11.1%), MCI Private Ventures (8.8%), 360 Capital
(4.3%) as well as two managing directors and founders of windeln.de through
Gut Vermögensverwaltung (8.7%) and ABrand Management (4.6%), respectively.

windeln.de intends to use the net proceeds of the offering it will receive
from the sale of the newly issued shares to fund its continued long-term
growth, as well as for general corporate purposes (see annex).

Alexander Brand, managing director and co-founder of windeln.de, said:
"windeln.de has shown significant growth since its inception in 2010
evidenced by a revenue compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 117% from 2012
to 2014. Reaching profitability with our business segment 'windeln.de' in
2014 was an important milestone and proves the attractiveness and
competitiveness of our business model. Taking our company public is the
next logical step as we will establish an even stronger platform to
accelerate the future long-term growth of our company."

Since its inception in 2010, windeln.de has grown consistently, both
organically and through acquisitions. The management team has a track
record of successfully executing and integrating acquisitions of other
companies to further build windeln.de's business, as evidenced by the
acquisition of Kindertraum.ch AG in Switzerland at the end of 2013.

BofA Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs International are
acting as Joint Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners. Berenberg and
COMMERZBANK have been mandated as additional Joint Bookrunners.

The annexes to this release include further important information on
windeln.de, including outlook, financial information and key performance
indicators. The full press release including the annexes is available at
