Adevinta acquired eBay for over $9Bn in 2020 with eBay taking a minority stake in Adevinta as part of the deal. EBay reduced its stake in Adevinta from 44% to 34% in 2021 and today, eBay holds a 33% stake in Adevinta and is the largest single shareholder in the company.
Adevinta recently removed the eBay name from its Kleinanzeigen portal in Germany to decouple eBay in a rebranding exercise.
