Equity Story

  • The customer as well as supplier base of TAKKT is very fragmented and diverse and can therefore hold a gross margin stability of 14-16% throughout the years. Price sensitivity is further limited due to low average order size.

  • TAKKT’s competitive landscape is strongly influenced by online-only suppliers, however due to the long period to reach break-even entry barriers are still high and the company’s e-commerce presence and focus is continuously rising. The portfolio is very extensive and therefore required a new organizational structure based on customer-type rather than geography.
