GoTo Completes Landmark Listing on Indonesia Stock Exchange Apr 11, 2022
Jakarta, 11 April 2022 – PT GoTo Gojek Tokopedia Tbk (“GoTo Group'' or the “Company”), the largest digital ecosystem in Indonesia, today announced its listing on the Main Board of the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX). The Company raised approximately US$1.1 billion from its Initial Public Offering (IPO) process, with the participation of around 300,000 investors – the highest-ever number to take part in an IPO on the IDX. Based on the total funds raised, the IPO is the one of the largest in the world this year. The Company made a strong debut in the first day of trading.
GoTo Group provides on-demand services, e-commerce and financial technology through the Gojek, Tokopedia, and GoTo Financial platforms. The Company is the market leader in Indonesia in each of its business verticals. Through the strengthening of synergies and network effects from within its ecosystem, the Company is well-positioned for continued growth. Indonesia is Southeast Asia’s largest economy, with a GDP of more than US$1 trillion and a population of 274 million – the fourth largest in the world. Indonesia and Southeast Asia have a young and highly tech-savvy population with increasing spending power that is driving the growth of the region’s digital economy. Accelerating demand for services across GoTo Group’s ecosystem, fueled by increasing digital adoption among consumers in Southeast Asia, has underpinned the Company’s strong growth in recent years.
Warburg Pincus co-led the series D financing of Gojek in 2016 and participated in the series E financing of Gojek in 2017. In 2021, Gojek completed its transformative merger with Tokopedia, forming GoTo, the largest technology group in Indonesia.
Jeffrey Perlman, Managing Director and Head of Southeast Asia and Asia-Pacific Real Estate at Warburg Pincus, commented, “We are immensely proud of our partnership with GoTo; not only are we impressed by its strong business performance but also by the incredible social impact that the Company has delivered. With the acceleration of digitalization in Southeast Asia, we believe GoTo is well-positioned to further capture outsized growth opportunities. We look forward to strengthening our partnership during the Company’s next chapter of growth.”
GoTo Group is fully committed to creating sustainable social impact. As part of the drive to make this IPO one of the most inclusive, GoTo introduced the Gotong Royong Share Program, allocating over US$20 million* to its driver-partners, as well as forming the GoTo Future Fund - an endowment fund that aims to support initiatives and solutions that benefit the lives of stakeholders across the GoTo ecosystem. Loyal merchants and consumer partners in Indonesia were able to benefit from the IPO, receiving priority access to order a fixed allocation of GoTo shares. Furthermore, as part of the program, all full-time employees have been made participants in the Group's Long-Term Incentive Plan. It is also the first Southeast Asian internet company to issue an assured sustainability report in line with global reporting standards and it continues to put strategic emphasis on the integration of ESG best practices into its business.
Warburg Pincus is one of the most active private equity firms in Southeast Asia with over US$3 billion of capital committed in the region. Today’s landmark listing of GoTo Group continues the firm’s established track record of delivering some of the largest and transformative IPOs in Southeast Asia, including two of the three largest IPOs in Vietnam - Vincom Retail in 2017 and Techcombank in 2018; and the largest IPO in the Philippines - Converge in 2020. Warburg Pincus is a strong believer in the long-term growth trajectory of Southeast Asia and will continue to actively pursue new opportunities in leading ventures in the region.
