Roh­lik – par­ent com­pany of Gurk­erl.at – re­ceives 220 mil­lion euros of Series...
The new cap­it­al will be used both to fin­ance the on­line gro­cer’s con­tin­ued ex­pan­sion in Ger­many, Italy, Spain and Ro­mania and to drive for­ward tech­nic­al in­nov­a­tion.Foun­ded in 2014, on­line gro­cer Roh­lik, which re­volu­tion­ised gro­cery in Aus­tria with gurk­erl.at, is one of the fast­est grow­ing re­tail­ers in the Czech Re­pub­lic and the en­tire CEE re­gion. Prom­ising de­liv­ery just 90 minutes after an or­der is placed, the com­pany already sup­plies more than one mil­lion cus­tom­ers with more than 17,000 products. Roh­lik now not only of­fers its de­liv­ery ser­vice in Vi­enna (gurk­erl.at), but also in Prague (roh­lik.cz), Bud­apest (kifli.hu), Mu­nich and Frank­furt (knus­pr.de). Soon the ser­vice plans to launch in Ham­burg, Mil­an (sezamo.it), Bucharest (sezamo.ro) and Mad­rid (sezamo.es). The fresh cap­it­al will be used to fin­ance con­tinu­ing ex­pan­sion and drive tech­nic­al in­nov­a­tions.Al­ex­an­der Rakosi, Part­ner in the CMS Vi­enna Cor­por­ate Trans­ac­tions Team, is de­lighted with the deal: “Such a large cross-bor­der trans­ac­tion al­ways raises a num­ber of com­plex leg­al and or­gan­isa­tion­al is­sues that re­quire sound leg­al ex­pert­ise and a well-co­ordin­ated trans­ac­tion team. Our in­ter­na­tion­al net­work en­ables us to provide our cli­ents with com­pre­hens­ive ad­vice and ac­cess to seasoned ex­perts in all coun­tries.”Man­aging Part­ner of CMS in Prague and Brat­is­lava, Helen Rod­well, is also pleased about the suc­cess­ful clos­ing: “We are proud to have been able to ac­com­pany this new fin­an­cing round. Roh­lik’s unique of­fer­ing and first-class ser­vice make it an at­tract­ive growth can­did­ate for in­vestors cau­tious due to the cur­rent eco­nom­ic and geo­pol­it­ic­al cli­mate. As a lead­ing in­ter­na­tion­al law firm – with a sig­ni­fic­ant pres­ence in CEE and many oth­er European coun­tries – CMS is ideally placed to provide leg­al sup­port for this kind of cross-bor­der trans­ac­tion.”The Aus­tri­an CMS leg­al team in Vi­enna in­cluded Al­ex­an­der Rakosi and Flori­an May­er (Cor­por­ate Law/M&A), Anna Hiegel­sper­ger (Cor­por­ate Law/M&A), Jens Winter (Em­ploy­ment & Pen­sions), Sonja Oten­hajmer (Dis­pute Res­ol­u­tion), Mar­i­ella Ka­poun (Real Es­tate & Con­struc­tion) and Max­imili­an Uidl (Real Es­tate & Con­struc­tion).
