Rocket Internet SE: Rocket Internet intends to place a number of shares in
HelloFresh SE resulting in gross proceeds of at least EUR 150m

Berlin, 18 April, 2018 - Rocket Internet SE ("Rocket Internet") announces
that it will place a number of shares in HelloFresh SE ("HelloFresh")
resulting in gross proceeds of at least EUR 150m. These shares will be
offered by way of an accelerated book-building to international
institutional investors (the "Placement").

The Placement will start immediately and is expected to be completed later

The joint bookrunners have waived the lock-up agreed in connection with the
IPO of HelloFresh in October 2017 between Rocket Internet and themselves
(the "IPO Lock-Up") to the extent required for the consummation of the
Placement. Had the IPO Lock-Up not been waived, it would expire on May 1,
2018. Following completion of the Placement, Rocket Internet's shareholding
in HelloFresh will be subject to an additional 90-day lock-up extension
until and including July 30, 2018 (23:59 CEST) (the "Lock-Up Extension").

Following the Placement, Rocket Internet will give other pre-IPO
shareholders of HelloFresh SE the opportunity to sell shares of HelloFresh
(pro rata to their pre-IPO shareholding as a percentage of the final number
of shares sold in the Placement) to Rocket Internet at the placement price
less costs and expenses (on a pro rata basis), provided, however, that
Rocket Internet will only grant such a put option if the relevant
shareholder enters into a lock-up agreement with the joint bookrunners on
substantially the same terms as the Lock-Up Extension. Such put option will
be granted as soon as possible after pricing and will lapse on the third
business days following today.
