STOCKHOLM Feb 25 Zalando, Europe's biggest
online fashion retailer, saw growth in unique visitors to its
website slow again in January after a weakening trend in the
fourth quarter, data released on Monday showed.
Data from U.S. Internet analytics firm comScore showed the
number of unique visits to the retailer growing 17 percent in
January, compared with the same month in 2013.
Visitor growth at Zalando has been slowing sharply in recent
months. Year-on year growth in December was slightly above 26
percent, down from just below 40 percent in both October and
November, and from growth of 53 percent in September.
Shares in Swedish investment firm Kinnevik, which
has a 36 percent stake in the German company, have come under
pressure this year on weakening sales growth late last year and
continued large losses at Zalando.
Kinnevik shares are down 15 percent so far this year,
compared to a 4 percent rise in the OMXS All Share index
