Zalando said in a regulatory filing that Anders Holch Povlsen acquired shares worth €8.9 million at a price of €34 per share on 6 March. The transaction increases Povlsen’s shareholding in Zalando by 0.03 percentage points to a total of 10.05%. The Danish retail mogul is Zalando’s largest single shareholder, and Swedish investment company Kinnevik is the firm’s majority shareholder with a 31.29% stake.

Povlsen’s decision to increase its shareholding comes amid rumours of a possible sale of Zalando. In the case of a sale, Povlsen would enjoy great gains.
