Zooplus Company Profile: Zooplus is a Germany-based Internet company that sells over 7,000 pet supply products that are shipped directly to customers. Current Share Price: 49.93 euros (Nov. 28) Motola's Take: Investors will probably raise an eyebrow when they hear Motola say that Zooplus "is essentially the Pets.com of Europe," a reference to the high-profile blowup of the dot-com area. Like Pets.com, Zooplus was also founded in the late 1990s. But while Pets.com collapsed without available capital, Zooplus has continued to thrive in Europe. "In the past decade, broadband penetration has improved significantly, as has willingness to buy online," Motola says. "Zooplus has been growing revenues about 30%, and is has a model built for scale. That revenue should turn into highly levered profit growth in the near term." Motola notes that the market for pet supply products is large at more than $40 billion per year. Depending on the geography, Zooplus has about 70% or more of the online market share. "Europeans are increasingly moving away from the daily shopping paradigm, and convenience and selection are compelling," Motola adds.
