Prosus, major subsidiary of Naspers, has entered into an agreement to acquire an additional 2.5% stake inDelivery Hero(FRA:DHER.GR),subject to regulatory approval, through its subsidiary, MIH Food Holdings B.V.
Prosus believes acquiring the additional stake is a sound financial investment that will afford it the ability to offset any potential future dilution which may occur in the normal course from, for example, convertible issuances, employeeexercises and/or stock issuances.Prosus mayincrease its stake in Delivery Hero if future opportunities arise to obtain further shares at attractive terms, but Prosus has no intention of exceeding an aggregate shareholding of 29.99%.
MIH Food Holdings B.V.currently holds 24.97% of Delivery Hero, which will increase to 27.47% post receipt of regulatory approval and closing of the transaction, expected by the end of September 2021. Prosus will remain the largest shareholder in Delivery Hero.
