Berlin — SMP has again advi­sed the startup SellerX in the course of a capi­tal increase. The total volume of the exten­ded finan­cing round amounts to appro­xi­m­ately 26 million euros and comes from lead inves­tor 83North as well as exis­ting inves­tors Felix Capi­tal, Cherry Ventures and other well-known busi­ness angels. Just a few months ago, SellerX announ­ced the successful comple­tion of a €100 million equity and debt finan­cing led by Sili­con Valley-based VC Triple­Point Capi­tal, among others.

In the mean­time, the Berlin-based company has bought up around 20 Amazon stores and is now plan­ning to use the fresh capi­tal to further expand its opera­ting busi­ness. At least 50 more stores are to follow in the next year and a half. SellerX was compre­hen­si­vely legally advi­sed by SMP part­ner Martin Scha­per toge­ther with Martyna Sabat and Matthias Kres­ser. The team had alre­ady provi­ded legal support to the FBA buyer in the previous finan­cing at the end of 2020 and also worked closely with Tomasz Krzy­wi­cki, Gene­ral Coun­sel of SellerX, on this transaction.
