We are pleased to announce the incorporation of Gumtree and Motors.co.uk to Qualitas Funds III portfolio through our German manager.

Our GP has acquired two businesses, Gumtree and Motors.co.uk. and is looking forward to driving the growth of the portals as independent businesses.

Gumtree is one of the leading classified portals in the UK. It connects millions of buyers and sellers and facilitates thousands of successful transactions every day across many categories (jobs, services, second-hand goods, pets, etc.). The company generates revenue from advertising, on site feature fees, and listing fees from professional sellers (mostly in the real estate and jobs categories).

Motors.co.uk is one of the leading online platforms for used cars, helping British car dealers reach millions of prospective buyers every month. The company generates subscription revenue from 7.000 car dealers, who pay monthly to display their inventory and receive potential customer leads.
