SA’s Prosus aims to put the bite on Uber Eats
Naspers’ newly listed internet arm Prosus wades into a bidding war for UK-based online food delivery group Just Eat
In its first major move that underlines its ambition to take on Silicon Valley giant Uber Eats, Naspers’s newly listed internet arm Prosus waded into a bidding war for UK-based online food delivery group Just Eat on Tuesday.
The R93bn offer directly to shareholders comes a month after Prosus was spun out of Naspers and listed separately on the Amsterdam’s Euronext. This is part of CEO Bob van Dijk’s strategy of building Prosus around three pillars: online payments; food delivery; and online classifieds.
