Brande, Denmark, 2014-1-31 — /EPR Retail News/ — THROUGH AN INVESTMENT COMPANY, BESTSELLER-OWNER ANDERS HOLCH POVLSEN BUYS INTO THE DANISH ONLINE SUPERMARKET NEMLIG.COM. BELOW, ANDERS GIVES A FEW COMMENTS ON THE INVESTMENT.
What are the reasons for investing in nemlig.com?
I believe that nemlig.com can be one of the very best online retailers of fast-moving consumer goods. Their business model can prove to be more effective than traditional supermarkets’, and the company and not least their employees and management has left a very positive impression on me.
What are your plans as a major shareholder in nemlig.com?
I see great potential for nemlig.com, and with the investment and partnership I want to contribute to securing the best possible future for the company and its employees.
Does this mean that BESTSELLER will start competing in the supermarket business?
No. BESTSELLER is a clothing retailer, and this is a purely financial investment made through an investment company independent of BESTSELLER.
Is there a correlation with your previously online investments in Zalando, Asos etc.?
Of course I see the online retailing business as a platform for great future potential – but the different online investments are to be seen as financial investments – they are not interrelated in any way.
