  • Strong quarterly performance with total segment revenue rising by 89% YoY, corresponding to the best increase in the industry
  • Gross Merchandise Value (GMV) increased by 65% YoY and by 14% QoQ, seeing Delivery Hero grow significantly faster than listed peers
  • Accelerated Dmart roll-out with the opening of +174 warehouses up to now 861
  • Moved full-year 2021 GMV and total segment revenue guidance to the upper end of the previously announced range

Berlin, 11 November 2021 - Delivery Hero SE ("Delivery Hero" or "Company"), the world's leading local delivery platform, concludes the third quarter of 2021[1] with a total segment revenue increase of 89% YoY, hitting EUR 1.8 billion. The GMV is up 65% YoY to a total of EUR 9.6 billion. During the full quarter, the Company processed an unprecedented 791 million orders (+52% YoY).

The performance of the Integrated Verticals[2] segment in Q3 2021 was driven by an accelerated Dmart roll-out, launching 174 new warehouses worldwide, following an accretion of 84 Dmarts in the previous quarter. Totaling a staggering number of 861 stores at the end of September, and a GMV run-rate of EUR 1.2 billion, Delivery Hero's Dmart business is one of the largest in the industry. Based on the Q3 results, the Company's outlook for 2021 previously raised in the second quarter was now further moved to the upper end of EUR 33 to 35 billion GMV and the total segment revenue adjusted to the upper end of EUR 6.4 to 6.7 billion. The expected adjusted EBITDA/GMV margin confirms at around -2%.

Niklas Östberg, CEO and Co-Founder of Delivery Hero, said: "During Q3 2021, we have reached remarkable milestones globally. The strategic expansion of our business continued even beyond the quarter through successful transactions such as the acquisition of hugo in Central America and the Caribbean as well as the investment in q-commerce startup Gorillas. Over the past decade, we have built a scalable platform and convenient service that our customers love. We are looking forward to taking our incredible products to the next level and delivering anything - locally."

Emmanuel Thomassin, CFO of Delivery Hero, said: "We maintained strong financial metrics throughout Q3 2021 and were able to move our full-year guidance. The Integrated Verticals segment has once again been a crucial driver, supporting this quarter's solid revenue results and leading to an exceptional QoQ growth, which surpassed listed industry peers. Looking ahead, Delivery Hero will continue to focus on sustainable long-term growth by consolidating our presence in key markets and strengthening our global leadership position."

At the forefront of quick commerce
Delivery Hero made multiple targeted investments in the quick commerce space, including the acquisition of Marketyo, a Turkish online platform with a large network of supermarket partners. In October, Delivery Hero also acquired hugo, the principal multi-category marketplace app in Central America and the Caribbean, and led the series C funding round of the on-demand grocery delivery startup Gorillas, now owning approximately 8% of the Berlin-based company.

Powering innovation and building an inclusive technology company
On a mission to accelerate local and global innovation, Delivery Hero opened a new tech hub in Istanbul, adding to the Company's network of over ten tech hubs situated across four continents. Devoted to developing diverse tech talent, the Company launched the Delivery Hero Tech Academy that started its inaugural cohort in September. Delivery Hero's commitment to promote an inclusive work environment was further fueled by the introduction of its first Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Board in fall of 2021. Representatives from Delivery Hero and its regional entities, foodpanda and PedidosYa, as well as D&I leaders from Microsoft and the University of Virginia, were appointed as D&I Advisory Board members. Delivery Hero was among the first DAX40 companies to announce such an initiative.

Financial position
Following the issuance of convertible bonds with gross proceeds amounting to EUR 1.25 billion in September, the recent closing of the divestment of Delivery Hero Korea as well as the financing of the operating business, Delivery Hero's financial position remains solid.
