Ecommerce News reveals that both Naspers and Takeaway aimed to acquire Just Eat. After the negotiations, the stakeholders have accepted the offer from Takeaway.

At the end of 2019, Takeaway already raised its offer, in an ultimate attempt to beat Prosus, the international dealmaking unit from Naspers. Now, the enlarged company is expected to become one of the largest players in the global takeaway food delivery market.

Just Eat is a dream combination and I am very much looking forward to leading the company for many years to come
Jitse Groen, Takeaway’s founder and CEO 

Within Europe, Just Eat has its influence in the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, and Nordic countries. Outside of Europe, it runs Skip the Dishes in Canada, iFood in Brazil and Mexico and Menulog in Australia.

Takeaway holds a leading position in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Poland, Bulgaria and Israel, and is also present in Switzerland, Luxembourg, Portugal, and Romania.
