PT GoTo Gojek Tokopedia Tbk (“GoTo Group” or the “Group”), the largest digital ecosystem in Indonesia, today announced its plan to carry out an initial public offering (the “IPO”) on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX). The IPO is expected to raise proceeds of at least IDR 15.2 trillion (USD1.1 billion) and will be one of the most significant ever conducted in the country.
Andre Soelistyo, GoTo Group CEO said, “This is a landmark moment in the history of our company as we set out on the final stretch towards becoming a publicly owned company on the Indonesia Stock Exchange. Indonesia is one of the largest and most exciting growth markets in the world, as reflected in the resilience our capital market has shown this year, against a backdrop of global market volatility. We hope that our IPO will show the world the tremendous opportunity that exists in our country and throughout the Southeast Asia region.”
“The strength of our business is that we are more than the sum of our parts. Our ecosystem of on-demand, e-commerce and financial technology services connects millions of consumers, driver-partners and merchants, with the mission to empower progress for everyone in the fast-growing digital economy. We are proud that we’ve come from humble origins in Indonesia, earned the trust of millions of consumers, driver-partners, and merchants, partnered with leading global investors and are now taking our next steps in building an iconic, internationally renowned technology company.”
“I would like to express our gratitude tothe Government of Indonesia for creating an environment that is enabling home-grown tech companies like ours to thrive and for supporting the nation’s digital transformation, which will ultimately benefit everyone.”
GoTo Group is a unique ecosystem that combines on-demand, e-commerce, and financial services through the Gojek, Tokopedia, GoTo Financial platforms. The integration of the three businesses under a single ecosystem brings significant synergies including a hyperlocal delivery network, cross-platform consumer loyalty capabilities and a broad financial services offering across multiple use cases. The breadth and ubiquity of the Group and its businesses are such that the ecosystem contributes to more than 2% of Indonesia’s GDP and its services address nearly two-thirds of the country’s household consumption.
As part of the IPO, and in-line with its ongoing commitment to delivering a positive social impact, GoTo Group is also planning to launch the Gotong Royong Share Program, which will provide the Group’s most active, long-serving and loyal driver-partners, merchants and consumers, as well as employees, with the opportunity to benefit from the IPO. Under the program, all full time employees have been made participants in the Group’s Long-Term Incentive Plan Program, long-serving driver-partners are set to receive grants, while the most loyal merchants and GoTo Group consumers will be eligible to purchase shares via a fixed allocation at IPO.
Andre added, “Our listing will be a great moment for those involved in the success of our ecosystem and for everyone that believes in the ‘Indonesian dream’. That is why it was important for us to provide the driver-partners, merchants, consumers and employees in our ecosystem with the opportunity to benefit from the IPO through this highly inclusive and globally unique share program.”
