OLX Group, the Internet classifieds business in the Prosus stable, said on Monday that it will increase its ownership in online car marketplace Frontier Car Group.
Naspers spin-off, Netherlands-listed Prosus, is making an audacious, R93.5-billion hostile bid to buy London-listed Just Eat.
Tuesday’s dramatic hostile counter-bid for the British Internet takeout company Just Eat arrived almost fully baked. But the new offer isn’t that tempting – it needs a big dollop of dessert to make it irresistible.
Prosus, which listed in Amsterdam just last week, is splitting opinion among the first investment banks to cover the stock.
Investors piled into Naspers’s newly listed Dutch unit, holding assets including a lucrative stake in Tencent Holdings, sending its shares soaring on their trading debut in Amsterdam.
When Naspers’s Latin America chief cold-called Alec Oxenford in 2010, he got straight to the point: he wanted to buy a majority stake of the Argentinian entrepreneur’s online classifieds business.
