Online retailer Zalando is just the kind of fast-growing German business with foreign expansion plans that Deutsche Bank Chief Executive Christian Sewing needs to help drive the struggling lender's recovery. In an attempt to draw a line under years of scandals and heavy losses, Sewing is pulling back from investment banking and rebuilding Deutsche Bank's corporate division by deepening existing relationships and attracting clients beyond its traditional blue-chip customers. "Deutsche Bank is a systemically relevant bank but, nevertheless, we see a possible risk and are trying to the best of our knowledge to mitigate the risk and to have a good sleep at night," Dominika Kilka-Roth, who heads Zalando's risk management, told Reuters.
Online fashion retailer Zalando has launched a pilot to deliver orders placed by customers in Paris on the website of Adidas as it extends moves to allow brands to use the logistics network it has built for its own ecommerce business. The pilot is the first time the German firm is delivering goods not ordered on its own site and marks an expansion of its platform strategy under which it charges brands a commission to list on its website rather than selling the products itself. "It is a win-win situation for us," Jan Bartels, Zalando senior vice president for customer fulfillment, told Reuters.
(Bloomberg) -- Zalando SE lost money for the first five years of its existence, then in 2014 it turned a corner and began posting a profit every year. Evidence suggests meal kit startup HelloFresh SE is following a similar path.The Berlin-based food company is optimistic it can generate a group-wide operating profit this year and sustain and expand profitability in the years to come, Chief Executive Officer Dominik Richter said in an interview on Tuesday. HelloFresh shares rose the most since January in early Frankfurt trading.HelloFresh can “generate much higher profit levels than other e-commerce companies,” because the company controls the entire value chain -- from branded retail to wholesale to logistics, Richter said.The company, which assembles ingredients into boxed meal kits and seeks to convince customers of the benefits of cooking at home, earlier Tuesday reported its first quarterly operating profit, in the April-June period, after sales growth across its markets.The results are “significantly better than what we expected,” Deutsche Bank analysts Nizla Naizer and Silvia Cuneo wrote in a note to clients. They mark “a key turning point for the group in our view.”HelloFresh rose as much as 17.7%, the steepest intraday gain since Jan. 18.The Berlin-based startup is especially strong in the U.S., its biggest market, where it’s surpassed Blue Apron Holdings Inc., expanded its choice of meals, and this week started a special “date night” kit in a marketing partnership with businesswoman and actress Jessica Alba.To contact the reporter on this story: Stefan Nicola in Berlin at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Rebecca Penty at firstname.lastname@example.org, Nate LanxonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Online fashion retailer Zalando raised its profit guidance on Thursday after a big jump in visits to its website, with the company citing efforts to provide a best-in-class fashion experience and more speedy delivery options. The Zalando news helped to lift other fashion stocks, such as H&M, while Next and Puma extended gains recorded on Wednesday when both reported strong results. Zalando, Europe's biggest online-only fashion retailer, has been trying to counter a squeeze on profitability as it has invested heavily in logistics to speed delivery.

Berlin-based personalised fashion start-ups Outfittery and Modomoto are merging in an effort to accelerate growth in Europe, where they compete with online-only retailer Zalando's own bespoke clothing business. Seven-year-old Outfittery is tying up with the smaller Modomoto in an all-share deal, expanding the online menswear business that in effect works as a personal shopper for its growing customer base. Julia Boesch, co-founder and CEO of Outfittery, will head the combined company, which she said would be "the European leader in personalised fashion shopping".
Zalando plans to boost delivery of goods direct from partner fashion stores, in a bid to capture more than 1 billion euros (867.97 million pounds) in sales that are missed annually when stock is not available in warehouses. Europe's biggest online fashion retailer already sells items from more than 1,000 German stores on its website, but wants to add up to 70,000 stores in the next three to five years, said Carsten Keller, head of "connected retail" at Zalando. "It is a massive stock pool we are tapping into," Keller told Reuters on the sidelines of the World Retail Congress, an annual meeting of the industry in Amsterdam, noting that connecting offline to online retail was a big trend in China.
Zalando says style advice and a personal shopping service are encouraging customers to spend more on their orders, as the German company makes progress halting a fall which had hit its profitability. Average order sizes at Europe's biggest online-only fashion retailer have fallen in recent years as people shop more often on their smartphones but spend less each time, pushing up Zalando's logistics costs. Zalando, which last week said it had managed to slow that decline, launched its free Zalon curated shopping service in 2015 and employs 700 stylists who put together outfit suggestions for several hundred thousand customers a year.
The pan-European STOXX 600 index gained 0.2 percent by 0928 GMT led by Germany's DAX 0.6 percent rise while Spanish and Italian bourses were flat to modestly lower. Also encouraging investors was a ZEW survey showing the mood among German investors improved in April, as the growth outlook for Europe's largest economy brightened amid a resilient global economy and a delay to Britain's departure from the EU. Zalando jumped more than 10 percent, making it the top performer on the STOXX and pushing the retail sector 0.7 percent higher after the e-commerce company said it expected to post an operating profit for the first quarter.
The same goes for the unexpected good news at Zalando SE. The German online fashion retailer on Tuesday reported a profit for the first quarter. Zalando didn’t give an explanation for its surprisingly good performance.
Shares in Zalando jumped on Tuesday after Europe's biggest online-only fashion retailer said it expected to post an operating profit for the first quarter, when it usually makes a loss due to selling off remaining stock after Christmas at a discount. The shares were up 11.7 percent by 0924 GMT, buoying other fashion firms like ASOS, Zara-owner Inditex, Adidas and H&M. The industry has been plagued in recent years by fierce competition and heavy discounting, while investment in logistics and technology to speed online delivery has also weighed on profitability, especially as Amazon expands in fashion.
European shares rose on Tuesday as Zalando's upbeat results boosted the retail sector and data out of China added to hopes of stabilization in the world's second-largest economy. The pan-European STOXX 600 index gained 0.3 percent by 0735 GMT, up for the fifth day with most bourses in the region higher and Germany's DAX leading gains. Zalando jumped more than 10 percent, making it the top performer on the STOXX and DAX, after the e-commerce company said it expected to post an operating profit for the first quarter.
