This is comprised of 23.2 million pounds from a range of new and existing investors and a 3.0 million pounds strategic investment by HT Media Limited.

"We are delighted with the successful closing of this financing round, having secured strong support from international institutional investors and one of India's largest and most well-respected media groups. The funds raised provide a strong financial platform from which to deliver our growth plans as we continue to focus on building the Koovs business to become India's number one western fashion destination by 2020,” said Mary Turner, CEO of Koovs.

Koovs, an online fashion store, confirmed that it has raised gross proceeds of a further 1million pounds finalising an investment from an existing institutional investor through the issue of 4,000,000 New Ordinary Shares at a price of 25 pence per Ordinary Share.
