PROSUS INCREASES STAKE IN DELIVERY HERO


Prosus, major subsidiary of Naspers, has entered into an agreement to acquire an additional
2.5% stake in Delivery Hero (FRA:DHER.GR), subject to regulatory approval, through its
subsidiary, MIH Food Holdings B.V.

Prosus believes acquiring the additional stake is a sound financial investment that will afford it
the ability to offset any potential future dilution which may occur in the normal course from, for
example, convertible issuances, employee exercises and/or stock issuances. Prosus may
increase its stake in Delivery Hero if future opportunities arise to obtain further shares at
attractive terms, but Prosus has no intention of exceeding an aggregate shareholding of 29.99%.

MIH Food Holdings B.V. currently holds 24.97% of Delivery Hero, which will increase to 27.47%
post receipt of regulatory approval and closing of the transaction, expected by the end of
September 2021. Prosus will remain the largest shareholder in Delivery Hero.

Growing its position in online food delivery is consistent with Prosus’s strategy to invest in
platforms with global potential that offer online marketplace services in high-growth markets.
Delivery Hero, along with Swiggy, iFood, Wolt, Oda and Flink comprise the Food Delivery
portfolio, which has a presence across 69 markets across the world.

The transaction will be funded from existing resources.
