Jabong comes under Global Fashion Group

Indian lifestyle e-tail venture Jabong has been brought under a new holding firm Global Fashion Group (GFG), which also houses four other online fashion e-commerce startups backed by tech incubator cum investor Rocket Internet and Swedish investment firm Investment AB Kinnevik, according to media reports.
 
The plan to create the emerging markets focused fashion e-commerce firm was announced last year and has now been completed.
 
Luxembourg-based GFG has now become the umbrella firm for five fashion e-commerce companies namely Dafiti (Latin America), Jabong (India), Lamoda (Russia and CIS), Namshi (Middle East) and Zalora (South East Asia and Australia).
 
It has simultaneously announced closure of a new funding round where it raised $35 million from Tengelmann Ventures and Verlinvest at the merger valuation of almost $3 billion, which was first announced in early September. The group plans to use the fresh funding to fuel its growth plans across 27 countries in four continents. It has recently set up operations in Belarus, Ukraine, Lebanon and Brunei and globally now employs over 8,500 people.
 
Following the fresh funding, Kinnevik owns 25.4 per cent stake in GFG, while Rocket Internet and Access Industries own 23 per cent and 7.4 per cent stake, respectively.
 
GFG will market a wide assortment of leading international apparel and accessories brands, a tailored selection of private labels and local assortments developed for specific ethnic markets notably in India, Indonesia and the West Asia.
 
Jabong is one of the two top lifestyle e-tailers in India, along with Myntra. The company was earlier in talks with e-commerce giant Amazon.com, Inc for a potential acquisition worth $1.1-1.2 billion. However, the talks did not progress. Its rival Myntra was acquired by Flipkart last year. (SH)
