Dino Polska has agreed to acquire a 75% equity stake in online drugstore retailer eZebra.
eZebra operates an online drugstore and offers a range of cosmetics and perfumes, as well as accessories in the beauty, health, personal-hygiene and household categories.
The founders of eZebra will continue to serve on its management board, to oversee the execution of its growth strategy.
As part of the agreement, Dino Polska will acquire control of eZebra and its subsidiaries – 3BOOM sp. z o.o. and its registered office in Lublin (3BOOM), and JTG Polska sp. z o.o. and its registered office in Lublin (JTG) – as well as its warehouse, rendering warehouse, and shipping services.
The deal is expected to close by 31 March 2024, upon obtaining the consent of the president of the Polish office of competition and consumer protection to acquire the shares.
It is also subject to the consent of JTG’s lender to execute the transaction and perform other activities required by the agreements in place with the bank.
The price of the shares will be approximately PLN 61 million (€13.70), of which PLN 11.5 million (€2.6 million) will serve as a contribution, with the company subscribing for new shares in the share capital of eZebra, which will support its ongoing development.
Approximately PLN 49.5 million (€11.1 million) will serve as payment for the secondary shares purchased by Dino Polska from the founders of eZebra.
The price of the shares will be adjusted for net debt and the difference in the working capital of eZebra, JTG and 3BOOM on the closing date, the retailer added.
