Zalando management board members David Schneider (L-R), Rubin Ritter and Robert Gentz pose for the media during a media presentation in Berlin August 28, 2014. Zalando, Europe's biggest online fashion retailer, reported first-half sales rose 29.5 percent and it made its first-ever profit, laying the groundwork for an expected imminent initial public offering. Zalando, which is holding its first media presentation later on Thursday, is set to announce plans in the first half of September to list a stake of around 15 percent that could value the company at some 6 billion euros ($7.9 billion), sources have told Reuters.
