Razor Group GmbH, the Berlin based brand aggregator, has received USD 125 million in an all-equity Series B financing round, bringing its valuation to over USD 1 billion. The round was subscribed by existing and new investors such as Fortress Investment Group, 468 Capital, Victory Park Capital, Presight Capital, Blackrock, Jebsen Capital, Redalpine and GFC.
Razor Group was founded in August 2020 as an early-adopter of the FBA-Amazon Acquirer business model. The firm acquires resellers on Amazon as well as other online-marketplaces and uses economies of scale to increase growth of each reseller acquired and of the whole group. After acquiring the first Amazon resellers in Germany, Razor Group has quickly expanded its M&A activities to other European countries, the United States of America, the United Kingdom and China. By establishing offices in Berlin, Delhi and Bangalore (India), Austin (Texas, United States of America), London (UK) and Shenzhen (China), Razor Group expanded its global physical presence as well. Currently, Razor Group has approximately 300 employees.
GLNS has comprehensively advised Razor Group in connection with the new equity financing through Dr. Daniel Gubitz and Eva Maier (both Corporate), as well as Dr. Anselm Lenhard (Finance). Inhouse General Counsel Adriana von Hardenberg advised Razor Group internally on this transactions.
