For the first nine months 2016, the aggregate adjusted EBITDA margin

continued to grow revenues, whilst absolute EBITDA losses decreased by EUR
159 million.

Selected companies in the core sectors Food & Groceries (HelloFresh and
foodpanda), Fashion (Global Fashion Group ("GFG")), General Merchandise
(Jumia) and Home & Living (Westwing and Home24) continued to show an
increase in aggregate net revenue of 30.6%, reaching EUR 1.58 billion for
the first nine months 2016.

HelloFresh, the leading global fresh meals at home provider, grew by 121.3%
and reached EUR 438 million net revenue in 9M 2016, while improving its
adjusted EBITDA margin by 11.1 percentage points to -15.1%. GFG increased
net revenue by 26.6% to EUR 706 million in 9M 2016, with a clearly improved
adjusted EBITDA margin of -14.1%. Dafiti, GFG's Latin American online

companies, as of the end of October 2016.

Rocket Internet Group's 9M 2016 revenue (EUR 40 million) and the

already disclosed in the H1 2016 results.

Shortly after Rocket Internet's uplisting to the Prime Standard on
September 26, 2016, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange announced Rocket
Internet's inclusion in the SDAX index, effective as of October 14, 2016.

 "With the uplisting to the Prime Standard, and the subsequent inclusion in
the German SDAX, we achieved one of our stated goals. The operating
progress accomplished by our selected companies translates into continued
growth and much improved margins," said Oliver Samwer, Rocket Internet's

The Rocket Internet Capital Partners fund held a third close on October 4,
2016, which took total combined commitments to USD 869 million. The USD 127
million incremental commitments were subscribed by third party investors
