fashionette AG accelerates international profitable growth with the acquisition of Brandfield
Brandfield is a European online retailer specializing in premium fashion accessories with a net revenue share of 75% in its core region the Netherlands and Belgium. Brandfield offers a wide range of premium fashion accessories such as jewellery, watches and leather goods with more than 8,000 SKUs (product units). The company generates approximately 40% of its net revenue through its own brands.
Brandfield can look back on 13 years of successful company history with continuous growth and is active in eleven countries across Europe. In the 2019/2020 financial year, Brandfield generated profitable net revenues of EUR 26.7 million (proforma consolidated) with approximately 100 employees. For the financial year 2020/2021 ending 30 June 2021, Brandfield expects net revenues of around EUR 40 million and an adjusted EBITDA* of approximately EUR 2.8 million (proforma consolidated in each case). Brandfield has an attractive customer base and expects to generate more than 450 thousand orders with an average order value of more than EUR 80 in the financial year 2020/2021.
The net purchase price is in the lower double-digit million Euro range. The closing of the transaction is subject to a condition precedent, which is expected to occur on 1 July 2021.
"With the acquisition of Brandfield, we are significantly advancing the expansion announced at the IPO and accelerate our dynamic and profitable growth. The acquisition of Brandfield not only increases our footprint in Europe, but also contributes positively to the scaling of our data-driven online platform for premium and luxury fashion accessories. Furthermore, there is significant synergy potential that we will leverage together with the existing management and the entire Brandfield team," says Daniel Raab, CEO of fashionette.
* fashionette defines EBITDA as net revenue plus other operating income less cost of materials, personnel expenses and other operating expenses.
