Netshoes is the leading sports and lifestyle online retailer in Latin America, as measured by net sales, and one of the largest online retailers in the region, with operations in Brazil, Argentina, and Mexico. Through the websites Netshoes and Zattini, as well as through partner-branded store sites it manages, Netshoes offers customers a wide selection of products and services for sports, fashion and beauty. This is the first IPO of a Latin American eCommerce company since 2007, and one of the few Latin American businesses that is listed on a U.S. exchange, without a local listing in Latin America.
