The major competitors of Prosus

Of course, Prosus is not the only holding company that interests investors and faces competition from large international groups, the main ones of which we propose to discover here:

Jefferies

First of all, the US Jefferies Group is an investment bank that merged in 2012 with Leucadia, its largest shareholder, in a $3.6 billion deal. It is one of Prosus' largest competitors at the moment.

Wendel

Another direct competitor is the Wendel Group which is a French investment company formed from the merger between CGIP and Marine-Wendel in 2002. The group is still controlled by the Wendel family through Wendel Participations which is the family holding company of the group.

Marfin Investment Group

Still among the major competitors of Prosus, we find the MIG group which is a Greek investment company created in 1998 under the name Marfin AMEY. This company has acquired several companies and has changed its name several times since then. In 2001, after the acquisition of Piraeus Prime Bank, it was renamed Marfin Bank. In 2004, it became Marfin Financial Group after the triple merger of Comm Group, Marfin Classic AEEX and maritime and financial Investments.

Finally, the last serious competitor of the Prosus group is none other than Schibsted, a Norwegian conglomerate in the media sector that operates in some twenty countries, including Norway and Sweden. The company is headquartered in Osloe and is listed on the Osloe Stock Exchange.


The major partners of Prosus

While the Prosus group faces many competitors, it is also active in strategic alliances, including numerous acquisitions. Here are three specific examples of this type of transaction to help you understand the benefits.

GoodHabitz

First and foremost, in June 2021, the Prosus Group announced that it had acquired GoodHabitz for €212 million. It now holds a majority stake. This company is a European provider of online training for businesses. The acquired company was founded in 2011 and offers its corporate customers a wide range of cost-effective soft skills training content tailored to all employees. Since its inception, the company has developed a solid base of corporate clients across all industries. In 2016, the company went international by expanding out of the Netherlands and has gradually extended its offering to nine other European countries. As a result, it has become one of the few lucrative companies in the enterprise EdTech sector in Europe.

BillDesk

In the same year, another strategic acquisition was announced by the Dutch technology giant Prosus. Prosus announced that it would pay $4.7 billion to acquire BillDesk, a payment service provider based in India. Through this deal, Prosus Group plans to combine BillDesk with PayU, which is its existing global fintech and payments business and already has a strong presence in the Indian market. The deal is said to be in the works since July 2021 but has not been finalized yet.

Stack Overflow

Finally a third partnership or rather a third strategic buyout was announced recently by Prosus. It is indeed the acquisition of Stack Overflow which is an online community for software developers, in what is considered as the very first direct purchase of the e-commerce and technology giant in the educational technology sector. The total value of the purchase is thus set at $1.8 billion. It was also mentioned following this announcement that access to the WebStack Overflow site would remain free and that this will remain unchanged in the future. According to Prosus, this company will remain independent and there will be plenty of money to develop, offer new features and improve the old ones.
