Noerr advises Linio on €50m funding


Noerr has advised Linio Holding comprehensively on a Series D financing round for €50 million. The financing round was led by Mexican investors LIV Capital and Northgate together with Swedish investor Kinnevik.

Launched in 2012, Linio has become the leading e-commerce platform in Latin America with operations in Mexico, Columbia, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Panama, Venezuela and Ecuador. As the promoter of B2C e-commerce in Latin America, Linio today operates the largest marketplace platform in the region, offering more than six million products across 60 categories via fast-growing network of over 27,000 professional sellers. The new capital will strengthen the platform’s outstanding position and allow further growth.

Linio once again relied on the advice of a Noerr team lead by Prof. Dr. Christian Pleister and Dr. Laurenz Tholen for this transaction. Noerr had already advised Linio on the last funding round in November 2015.
