12 months listed – and still hungry! Here’s what happened in the first year after IPO

It’s been one year since Delivery Hero went public on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (June 30, 2017). Having raised close to €1 billion, it was the largest German IPO in 2017 (read more).

Today we’re celebrating our first anniversary as a listed company – and Delivery Hero has literally just started. Here are ten figures that prove going public was just another milestone on our successful journey.
