Our analysis on the Deliveroo IPO

By George Bear, Assistant Portfolio Manager

Deliveroo plans to raise £1 billion when it sells new shares as part of its IPO, currently planned for March 2021. It has been a major beneficiary of the lockdowns that have been part of the UK’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic, seeing a huge increase in revenues to £4.1 billion for 2020, compared to £2.5 billion in 2019. It continues to make a loss, although here the trend is in the right direction, with 2020’s loss of £223 million representing a notable improvement over 2019’s £317 million loss.

The firm looks to achieve a £7.6 billion valuation when it lists, taking advantage of the shift to takeaways as a result of the closure of restaurants across the UK. A market share of 20% is a 25% increase over 2019, suggesting that Deliveroo continues to gain ground against its rivals such as Just Eat Takeaway.com. It is not just a level of market share; Deliveroo has a higher average order size than its rivals Just Eat and Uber Eats, at £23 versus £21 and £17 respectively, helping to bolster its attractiveness versus competitors.

Having established itself in its home market, Deliveroo now needs to expand. The IPO will give it extra funding to achieve this, but it faces stiff competition from established competitors in key markets such as the US. In addition, the regulatory environment has become less congenial for these ‘gig economy’ companies, as governments and authorities take a closer look at the employment conditions of workers at firms like Uber and Deliveroo.

How has Deliveroo been performing?

Before the coronavirus pandemic hit, it was estimated that Deliveroo would contribute around £4 billion in economic output. However, order numbers started to decrease rapidly following national lockdowns and 15% of its workforce had to be laid off. Deliveroo’s funding in recent years has included a £459 million boost from Amazon in 2019. After Deliveroo’s latest fundraising round (January 2021), the company’s market cap was estimated at £7.5 billion.

Deliveroo has created more than 60,000 jobs and partnered with more than 80,000 restaurants. Headquartered in London, it services the UK, Ireland, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Italy, UAE, Kuwait, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Australia.

Who are Deliveroo’s competitors?

Deliveroo’s competitors are Uber Eats, Just Eat and City Pantry, to name a few. Deliveroo is the third largest food delivery app in the UK, after Just Eat Takeaway and Uber Eats. Just Eat held its IPO in April 2014 and was valued at £1.47 billion.

One thing that sets Deliveroo apart from its competitors is its delivery-kitchen concept, called Deliveroo Editions. Through comprehensive data gathering, it has identified gaps in the market and created pop-up restaurants in areas where people are not being serviced.

FAQs

Will Shu and Greg Orlowski set up Deliveroo in 2013 after Shu had spent a few years developing his idea for the service.

Deliveroo makes money by charging both users and participating restaurants. Users are charged a delivery fee of £2.50, while restaurants pay a commission fee of up to 20% when users order from their menu via Deliveroo. The company also generates revenue by charging a fee for offering restaurant perks and promotions on its platform.

Deliveroo might consider an IPO to raise more funds or to improve its reputation among the public. There is no confirmed date for the IPO and many reports state that the focus is on growing the business and reaching new customers, not an IPO specifically.
