Technology investment firm Prosus has reached an agreement with Just Eat Holding to acquire the remaining 33.3% stake in Brazilian online food ordering and delivery platform iFood for up to €1.8bn.

According to the terms of the deal, Prosus will pay €1.5bn in cash as well as make a contingent payment of up to €300m.

The latest deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter. Upon completion, Prosus and its affiliate company Movile will fully own iFood.

Prosus CEO Bob van Dijk said: “We first invested in iFood nearly a decade ago, and during this time, Fabricio and team have built a world-class food delivery business.

“They have shaped the sector in Brazil, creating a platform that serves 330,000 restaurant partners, provides income opportunity for 200,000 delivery partners, and delivers approximately 70 million orders every month.

“Increasing our stake to full ownership is a demonstration of our committed and disciplined approach to investment and reflects our confidence in the long-term potential of iFood. We are excited to continue to be a supportive and active partner for iFood as the company steps into its next phase of innovation and growth.”
