Kirkland & Ellis is advising InPost S.A., the Polish parcel locker firm formerly backed by Advent International Corp. and recently listed on Euronext Amsterdam, on its proposed acquisition of 100% of the shares of Mondial Relay, the leading French eCommerce out-of-home parcel delivery platform, from Otto Group for approximately EUR 565 million.
InPost S.A. is the first company in Poland to create a network of parcel lockers – self-service parcel dispatch and collection points, open 24/7.
The proposed acquisition would allow InPost to take a major step in its ambition to become Europe’s leading out-of-home solution for eCommerce.
