Carousell Kicks Off 2017 With A Bang! Acquires Malaysian Mobile Classifieds Startup Duriana

Carousell has done it again.

This morning, they announced that they have just acquired Duriana, a Malaysian-based mobile classifieds startup. This is their third acquisition in less than six months, the last being of Singaporean car classifieds platform Caarly.

Said Quek Siu Rui, Co-founder and CEO of Carousell, “We saw that Duriana users had similar demographics and interests in buying and selling fashion items, gadgets & electronics as well as home furnishing. By bringing Duriana users onto the Carousell platform, we’re helping more people buy and sell their preloved items quickly and easily. This acquisition accelerates our international growth, and strengthens our position as the largest mobile classifieds marketplace in Malaysia with over 5 million listings.”
