PLEASE READ THIS SUMMARY NOTICE CAREFULLY; YOUR RIGHTS WILL BE
AFFECTED BY PENDING CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS.

YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED, pursuant to Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and an order of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York in a lawsuit captioned In re Jumia Technologies AG Securities Litigation, No. 19-cv-4397 (S.D.N.Y.) (the “Federal Action”), and further, pursuant to Article 9 of the New York Civil Practice Law and Rules, and an order of the Supreme Court of New York, New York County, in a lawsuit captioned Convery v. Jumia Technologies AG, et al., Index No. 656021/2019 (N.Y. Sup. Ct., N.Y. Cty.) (the “State Action”), that the parties in the Federal Action and the State Action have reached proposed settlements in the amount of $2,000,000.00 in cash in the Federal Action (the “Federal Action Settlement”) and $3,000,000.00 in cash in the State Action (the “State Action Settlement,” and together with the Federal Action Settlement, the “Settlements”).1

If approved, the Settlements will resolve all claims in the Federal Action and the State Action. A hearing will be held in the Federal Action on March 17, 2021 at 2:00 p.m., before the Honorable P. Kevin Castel at the United States District Court, 500 Pearl Street, Courtroom 11D New York, NY 10007 (the “Federal Court”), and a hearing will be held in the State Action on March 18, 2021 at 2:30 p.m., before the Honorable Justice Andrea Masley at the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, Room 647, 60 Centre Street, New York, NY 10007 (the “State Court”) to determine whether: (i) the Exchange Act Settlement Class and the Securities Act Settlement Class should be certified only for purposes of the Federal Action Settlement and the State Action Settlement, respectively; (ii) the Federal Action Settlement and the State Action Settlement should be approved as fair, reasonable, and adequate; (iii) the Federal Action and the State Action should be dismissed with prejudice, and the releases specified and described in the Federal Stipulation and the State Stipulation (and in the Long Notice described below) should be entered; (iv) the proposed Plan of Allocation for the Settlements should be approved as fair and reasonable; and (v) Federal Lead Counsel’s and State Plaintiff’s Counsel’s applications for awards of attorneys’ fees of up to one-third of the Settlements, expenses of up to $125,000.00 in the Federal Action and $75,000.00 in the State Action, and awards to Plaintiffs in the Actions in the amount of up to $2,500.00 each should be approved. The Federal Court and the State Court may change the date of the settlement approval hearings and reserve the right to hold the hearings telephonically or by other virtual means. You do NOT need to attend the settlement approval hearings to receive a distribution of the proceeds from the Settlements.

The Settlements will not become effective until both the Federal Action Settlement and the State Action Settlement receive final approval from their respective Courts, and both have become Final. If approved, the Settlements will resolve all claims in the Federal and State Actions.

If you are a member of one or both Classes, your rights will be affected by the pending Federal and State Actions and the Settlements, and you may be entitled to share in the proceeds of the Settlements. This Summary Notice provides only a summary of the information contained in the detailed Notice of (I) Pendency of Class Actions and Proposed Settlement of Federal Action and State Action; (II) Motions for Awards of Attorneys’ Fees and Litigation Expenses; and (III) Settlement Hearings (the “Long Notice”). You may obtain copies of the Long Notice, along with the Proof of Claim and Release Form, by writing to or calling the Claims Administrator: Jumia Technologies AG Securities Litigation, c/o Strategic Claims Services, 600 N. Jackson St., Ste. 205, P.O. Box 230, Media, PA 19063; (Tel) (866) 274-4004; (Fax) (610) 565-7985; info@strategicclaims.net.

If you are a member of one or both of the Settlement Classes, in order to be eligible to receive a payment under the proposed Settlements, you must submit a Proof of Claim and Release Form to the Claims Administrator either: (1) electronically at https://www.strategicclaims.net by 11:59 p.m. EST on February 24, 2021; or (2) by mail postmarked no later than February 19, 2021, in accordance with the instructions set forth in the Proof of Claim and Release Form. Subject to the Courts’ approval, the Claims Administrator will continue to accept as timely submitted Proof of Claim and Release Forms received by April 26, 2021. If you are a member of one or both Classes and do not submit a valid and timely Proof of Claim and Release Form, you will not be eligible to share in the distribution of the net proceeds of the Federal Action Settlement or the State Action Settlement, but you will nevertheless be bound by any releases, judgments, or orders entered by the Federal Court in the Federal Action and/or the State Court in the State Action.

If you properly exclude yourself from one or both Classes, you will not be bound by any releases, judgments, or orders entered by the Federal Court in the Federal Action and/or the State Court in the State Action, and you will not be eligible to share in the net proceeds of the Settlements. Excluding yourself is the only option that may allow you to be part of any other current or future lawsuit against Defendants or any of the other released parties concerning the claims released in the Settlements. Please note, however, that if you decide to exclude yourself, you may be time-barred from asserting certain of the claims covered by the Federal and/or State Actions by a statute of limitations or repose.
