Deliveroo Holdings plc

Announcement of Price Range

 

Following its announcement on 15 March 2021 of its intention to proceed with an initial public offering (the "IPO" or the "Offer"), Deliveroo ("we", "us", "our") today announces the price range for its planned IPO and the intention to publish its Prospectus, which is expected to take place later today, alongside a trading update.

 

Will Shu, Founder and CEO of Deliveroo, said:

"We are proud to be listing in London, the city where Deliveroo started. Becoming a public company will enable us to continue to invest in innovation, developing new tech tools to support restaurants and grocers, providing riders with more work and extending choice for consumers, bringing them the food they love from more restaurants than ever before. This will help us in our mission to become the definitive food company. We have seen a strong start to 2021 and we are only at the start of an exciting journey in a large, fast-growing online food delivery market, with a huge opportunity ahead."

 

Trading Update

 

Deliveroo is providing an update on trading for the 2 month period January and February 2021 versus the comparable period in 2020.

 

GTV - the total value of transactions it processes on its platform - has grown +121% year on year at the group level in January and February 2021. GTV in the UK and Ireland has grown +130% year on year and GTV in the Group's other markets has grown +112% year-on-year.

 

This follows the Company's Registration Document, published on 8 March 2021, which showed GTV grew 64% in 2020. Fourth quarter 2020 run-rate GTV amounts to over £5 billion. In 2020, underlying gross profit margin as a percentage of GTV grew from 5.8% in 2018 to 8.8%, demonstrating fast growth underpinned by strong unit economics.

 

 

 

 

Offer Highlights

 

The price range for the Offer has been set at £3.90 to £4.60 per Share, implying an estimated market capitalisation1at Admission of between £7.6 billion and £8.8 billion (excluding any over-allotment shares).

Offer will consist of up to 384,615,384 Shares (excluding any over-allotment shares).

We will apply for admission of Shares on the standard listing segment of the Official List of the FCA andto trading on the main market of the London Stock Exchange.

The Offer will comprise of new Shares to be issued by Deliveroo (expecting to raise gross proceeds of approximately £1 billion) ("New Shares") and existing Shares to be sold by certain existing shareholders.

We intend to use the net proceeds from the issue of the New Shares to continue to invest in the growth opportunities available:

Bringing the food category online represents an enormous market opportunity. The way we think about it is simple: there are 21 meal occasions in a week - breakfast, lunch, and dinner - seven days a week. Right now, less than one of those 21 transactions takes place online. We are working to change that.

We have executed well, from a growth, expansion, and profitability perspective, but we are just truly starting our journey.

We will continue to invest in the innovations that we believe will further enhance our core marketplace for consumers, restaurants and grocers, and riders, while also continuing to further develop our growth businesses, in particular, Editions, Plus and Signature.

The Offer will be a targeted offering to institutional investors outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S and to QIBs in the United States pursuant to Rule 144A under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") (the "Institutional Offer").

As previously announced, the Offer will also include a community offer enabling UK-based consumers with a Deliveroo account who (a) have placed at least one order for delivery; and (b) are resident and located in the United Kingdom, to apply for Shares. Deliveroo will prioritise existing loyal customers, with a mixture of new and existing customers benefiting.

In connection with the Offer, there will be an over-allotment option of up to 10% of the base transaction size.

Deliveroo and selling shareholders have agreed to a 180 day lock up, while Directors have agreed to a 365 day lock up. The lock ups are subject to certain exceptions and there is a partial early release of the lock up after 150 days from Admission for certain selling shareholders if the price of the Shares is trading at 30% or more above the Offer Price. Substantially all other shareholders will be subject to a 180 day lock-up, subject to certain exceptions.

Any additional details in relation to the Offer will be disclosed in the Prospectus which is expected to be published later today.

Deliveroo has engaged Goldman Sachs International and J.P. Morgan Securities plc (which conducts its UK investment banking activities as J.P. Morgan Cazenove) ("J.P. Morgan Cazenove") as Joint Global Co-ordinators, and Merrill Lynch International ("BofA Securities"), Citigroup Global Markets Limited ("Citigroup"), Jefferies International Limited ("Jefferies") and Numis Securities Limited ("Numis") as Joint Bookrunners for the Offer.

In connection with the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, the Banks may, at their discretion, undertake their obligations in connection with the potential IPO by any of their affiliates based in the EEA.

In connection with the Offer, each of the Banks and any of their respective affiliates may take up a portion of the Shares in the Offer as a principal position and in that capacity may retain, purchase, sell, offer to sell or otherwise deal for their own accounts in such securities and any other securities of the Company or related investments in connection with the Offer or otherwise. Accordingly, references in this Prospectus to the Shares being issued, offered, subscribed, acquired, placed or otherwise dealt with should be read as including any issue, offer, subscription, acquisition, dealing or placing by the Underwriters and any of their affiliates acting in such capacity. In addition, certain of the Underwriters or their respective affiliates may enter into financing arrangements (including swaps or contracts for differences) with investors in connection with which such Underwriters (or their respective affiliates) may from time to time acquire, hold or dispose of Shares. None of the Underwriters intends to disclose the extent of any such investment or transaction otherwise than in accordance with any legal or regulatory obligation to do so.

In connection with the Offer, Goldman Sachs, as stabilising manager, or any of its agents, may (but will be under no obligation to), to the extent permitted by applicable law, over allot Shares or effect other stabilising transactions with a view to supporting the market price of the Shares at a higher level than that which might otherwise prevail in the open market. The stabilising manager is not required to enter into such transactions and such transactions may be effected on any securities market, over the counter market, stock exchange or otherwise and may be undertaken at any time during the period commencing on the date of the commencement of conditional dealings in the Shares on the London Stock Exchange and ending no later than 30 calendar days thereafter. However, there will be no obligation on the stabilising manager or any of its agents to effect stabilising transactions and there is no assurance that stabilising transactions will be undertaken. Such stabilisation, if commenced, may be discontinued at any time without prior notice. In no event will measures be taken to stabilise the market price of the Shares above the Offer Price. Except as required by law or regulation, neither the stabilising manager nor any of its agents intends to disclose the extent of any over allotments made and/or stabilising transactions conducted in relation to the Offer.

In connection with the Offer, Goldman Sachs, as stabilising manager, may, for stabilisation purposes, over-allot Shares up to a maximum of 10% of the total number of Shares comprised in the Offer. For the purposes of allowing the Stabilising Manager to cover short positions resulting from any such over-allotments and/or from sales of Shares effected by it during the stabilising period, the Company has granted to it the Over-allotment Option, pursuant to which the stabilising manager may subscribe or procure subscribers for additional Shares representing up to 10% of the total number of Shares comprised in the Offer (the "Over-allotment Shares") at the Offer Price. The Over-allotment Option is exercisable in whole or in part, upon notice by the stabilising manager, at any time on or before the 30th calendar day after the commencement of conditional dealings of the Shares on the London Stock Exchange. Any Over-allotment Shares made available pursuant to the Over-allotment Option will rank pari passu in all respects with the Shares being issued or sold in the Offer, including for all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid on the Shares, will be subscribed for on the same terms and conditions as the Shares being issued or sold in the Offer and will form a single class for all purposes with the other Shares.

For the avoidance of doubt, the contents of the Company's website, including the websites of the Company's business units, are not incorporated by reference into, and do not form part of, this announcement.

 

Information to Distributors

 

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements of Chapter 3 of the FCA Handbook Product Intervention and Product Governance Sourcebook (the "UK Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the UK Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Offer Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that the Offer Shares are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail investors and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each defined in the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all permitted distribution channels (the "Target Market Assessment"). Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, "distributors" (for the purposes of the UK Product Governance Requirements) should note that: the price of the Offer Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Offer Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Offer Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Offer. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, the Underwriters will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties. For the avoidance of doubt, the Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of Chapters 9A or 10A respectively of the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the Shares. Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own Target Market Assessment in respect of the Offer Shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.
