Tirsdag kveld meldte Adevinta om at et joint venture som det eier halvparten av, OLX Brazil, legger 2,9 milliarder brasilianske realer på bordet for å kjøpe alle aksjene i Grupo ZAP. Det tilsvarer rett i underkant av 6 milliarder kroner. OLX Brazil er et joint venture mellom Adevinta og Prosus.

– Det et et veldig strategisk fornuftig oppkjøp. OLX Brazil har hatt en utfordrerposisjon i eiendomssegmentet, mens Grupo ZAP har vært eneren. I et «vinner tar alt»-marked er oppkjøpet med på å ta ned risikoen i det langsiktige vekstcaset i Brasil, sier analytiker Eirik Rafdal i Carnegie.

Det er litt sparsomt med finansielle opplysninger knyttet til transaksjonen. I 2018 hadde imidlertid Grupo ZAP en omsetning på 217 millioner realer og et driftsresultat før av- og nedskrivninger (EBITDA) på minus 18 millioner realer.

– Hvis man leker seg litt med tall og antar at Grupo ZAP vokser like mye som det OLX Brazil gjør i lokal valuta, ble oppkjøpet gjennomført til mellom syv og ni ganger EV/Sales på 2020-estimater, sier han.

Adevinta ASA (ADE) - Adevinta announces that OLX Brazil is to acquire Grupo ZAP and strengthen its position in the real estate segment in the country
- The deal values Grupo ZAP at approximately R$ 2.9 billion
- The partnership promises an improved user experience and service offering
- The transaction is subject to approval by Brazil's Antitrust Agency (CADE)

Oslo, 03 March 2020: OLX Brazil, the 50/50 joint venture between Adevinta ASA
(OSE: ADE) and Prosus NV (AMS: PRX), and one of the fastest growing tech
companies in Brazil, has entered into an agreement to acquire 100% of the shares
of Grupo ZAP for a total cash amount of approximately R$ 2.9 billion. The
investment will be equally financed by OLX Brazil's two existing shareholders,
with Adevinta financing its share through existing bank facilities.

OLX Brazil and Grupo ZAP, currently among the most relevant players in the
online
real estate classifieds and advertising sector in Brazil, are highly
complementary platforms. The acquisition therefore will offer a great
opportunity for synergies and value creation. The merger will help boost the
real estate market, offering a better range of services with a broader database
of properties. With Grupo ZAP, OLX Brazil will be able to offer its users more
than 12 million listings from more than 40,000 real estate agencies and
thousands of private listers, as well as allowing its advertisers to reach a
larger audience. In 2018, Grupo ZAP had net revenues of R$ 217 million and
EBITDA of R$ -18 million, with an average of 28 million visits per month in
2019.

"OLX Brazil and Grupo ZAP are at the forefront of helping players along the Real
Estate value chain become more digital. The transaction will boost OLX Brazil's
capabilities to drive innovation and develop a superior customer experience,
ultimately making buying, selling and renting real estate in Brazil much safer,
simpler and more efficient for all players involved," says Andries Oudshoorn,
CEO of OLX Brazil.

Rolv Erik Ryssdal, CEO of Adevinta, comments: "Expanding in territories where we
see significant growth opportunities is a key pillar of Adevinta's strategy. The
large Brazilian real estate market has low penetration of online listings and is
poised for a migration to digital. I am delighted to see OLX Brazil
strengthening its position in the real estate vertical in order to capture part
of the upcoming growth potential."

Martin Scheepbouwer, CEO of OLX Group, the classifieds business of Prosus,
says: "We are excited to take our partnership in Brazil into a new stage of
growth. The acquisition of Grupo ZAP promises to advance the real estate sector
in Brazil, and develop technology that better serves all our customers. We
already have a strong presence in the online real estate market in Europe, South
Africa and other Latin American countries, and we look forward to exploring
further growth opportunities in Brazil."

The transaction coincides with a period of high growth for online advertising.
According to the IAB (Interactive Advertising Bureau) Brazil, in 2018 the
industry represented an estimated investment of R$ 16.1 billion, with online
classifieds forming just 10% of that. As the real estate industry is moving
quickly from offline to online, boosted by low interest rates - online
advertising is set to make significant gains. These gains look to be
particularly substantial for online classifieds, as real estate classifieds
platforms grow in popularity and traffic. In addition, with the real estate
industry still to reach the maturity levels seen in other markets, there is
plenty of opportunity for high-value growth overall.

The transaction is subject to approval by Brazil's Antitrust Agency (CADE) and
other customary closing conditions. Closing is expected in the second half of
2020.
