South Korea’s Naver to buy Poshmark for US$1.6 billion

South Korean tech firm Naver Corp said on Tuesday it agreed to a $1.6 billion deal to buy Poshmark Inc, a US secondhand fashion platform, as a strategic investment to enter the US e-commerce market.

The $1.6 billion includes consideration for Poshmark’s cash holdings, and the enterprise value of Poshmark is about $1.2 billion, a Naver spokesperson said.

The deal will combine Poshmark’s shopping platform with Naver’s technology including image recognition and live streaming, a key driver of e-commerce in South Korea, to target an $80 billion market in online secondhand fashion commerce in the US, the companies said in a statement.
