Rocket Internet SE: Alibaba acquires Daraz

- Alibaba acquires the entire share capital of Daraz, a company incubated by
Rocket Internet

- Testament to Rocket Internet's ability to successfully scale and exit
market-leading companies

Berlin, 8 May, 2018 - Rocket Internet SE ("Rocket Internet") announced today
that the leading Chinese eCommerce company Alibaba Group ("Alibaba")
acquired the entire share capital of South Asian eCommerce platform Daraz
Group ("Daraz") for an undisclosed amount.

Daraz was founded in Pakistan in 2012 and has since grown into the most
popular online shopping destination in the country. Today, Daraz also
operates online marketplaces in Bangladesh, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Nepal.
The five South Asian markets in which Daraz is operating have a combined
population of over 460 million, 60% of which are under the age of 35. Daraz
will continue to operate under the same brand following the transaction.

"The sale of Daraz to Alibaba is another testament to Rocket Internet's
ability to successfully scale and exit market-leading companies", says
Oliver Samwer, CEO of Rocket Internet. "Leading technology and a strong
logistics network have helped creating one of the fastest growing companies
in the region. The acquisition by Alibaba is a tremendous success for the
entire team working at Daraz."
