“Malaysia is amongst the fastest growing ecommerce markets in Asia, with a market size of more than RM 5.5 billion (US$ 1.36 billion). As a leading provider of online savings in India and Singapore, CUPONATION will also provide the best saving opportunities to all online shoppers in Malaysia,” said Andreas Fruth, Managing Director and Co-Founder of CUPONATION in an official statement.

It has about 250 employees and at the end of 2015 claimed 19,682 active retailers. CUPONATION also had 34.21 million active users.

Company investors besides Rocket Internet are Holtzbrinck Ventures, New Enterprise Associates, e.ventures, ru.net, Deutsche Telekom Strategic Investments, Silicon Valley Bank and Columbia Lake Partners.

“We are convinced that Malaysia is the best next market to launch out of the CUPONATION India office, given our run-away success in CUPONATION Singapore, which in a matter of few months emerged as the market leader in the online vouchers and savings segment,” said CUPONATION Southeast Asia Managing Director Mayank Sharma in a statement.
