About Tiendanimal

Tiendanimal is a Malaga-based company specialising in the marketing of pet products through the number one online shop in Spain. The company has more than a decade of experience offering pet food, accessories, hygiene and health products for pets throughout Spain.

Tiendanimal was created with the aim of filling a gap in the pet products market, "offering a range of references that are difficult to acquire or non-existent in the retail world and at very competitive prices", says its general manager, Rafael Martínez-Avial.

The company started offering 4,000 products in an online shop in 2006, after opening its first physical shop in Malaga in 2002. Nowadays Tiendanimal has a catalogue of more than 30.000 online references and more than 900.000 customers in the 4 countries where it is present: Spain, Portugal, Italy and France. Today, the Malaga-based company has 35 physical shops, and expects to reach 100 by the end of 2020.

With a turnover of more than €70M and an ebitda of close to €5.5M in 2017 (50% higher than the previous year), Tiendanimal expects to exceed €100M in turnover in 2018 and maintain its omnichannel leadership in the pet supplies sector in Spain and Portugal, as well as increasing its presence in Italy and France.

Tiendanimal receives €60M investment

Malaga-based Tiendanimal, a multichannel leader in the pet supplies sector in Spain and Portugal, has closed a €60M investment round led by debt funds Muzinich and LGT.

The aim of this capital injection is to accelerate its growth plan (both in the physical channel and outside Spain) and to develop its website and its own brand, in order to reach 100 shops by 2020. The company, in which Miura has had a stake since 2014, has thus secured the necessary financing for its expansion strategy.

This round of financing is in addition to a working capital facility signed with Banco Santander and a capital increase of the current shareholders, including Miura Private Equity and the management team.

Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:
