Berlin, April 2, 2020 - Rocket Internet SE ("Rocket Internet" or "the Company") in
FY 2019 reported EUR 67 million of consolidated revenue and a consolidated profit of EUR 280 million, representing EUR 1.90 earnings per share (EUR 1.28 earnings per share in FY 2018).

Rocket Internet's selected companies developed well in FY 2019, both breaking even on an adjusted EBITDA basis in Q4 2019. Global Fashion Group, the leading online fashion and lifestyle destination in growth markets, grew group revenue to EUR 1.3 billion in FY 2019, which represents a year on year growth of 17% on a constant currency basis. The FY 2019 adjusted EBITDA margin was -3%, a 1.5 percentage points improvement compared to the prior year period. Active customers reached 13.1 million at the end of FY 2019, a 17% increase compared to a year ago. Marketplace share expanded to 21% of NMV in Q4 2019 and the group broke even for the first time in the fourth quarter of 2019 delivering an adjusted EBITDA of EUR 0.7 million.

Home24 grew revenue to EUR 372 million in FY 2019, a 20% increase versus the prior year on a constant currency basis (19% including foreign currency effects). The adjusted EBITDA margin improved to -8% in FY 2019 (-13% in FY 2018), fuelled by a strong 7 percentage point margin improvement in Europe compared to FY 2018. In Q4 2019, home24 reached adjusted EBITDA break-even for the first time on a group and regional level, thus achieving an important IPO milestone within 18 months after listing.

Oliver Samwer, founder and CEO of Rocket Internet commented: "2019 has been a successful year for Rocket Internet and many of its companies. The Corona pandemic has introduced a high degree of uncertainty to the development of the global economy this year and will also negatively impact our network of companies in the coming months and quarters."

As of March 31, 2020, Rocket Internet had an available net cash position of EUR 2.1 billion.
