Indonesia’s Bukalapak kicks off US$1.1 billion IPO, biggest in more than a decade

SINGAPORE: Indonesia’s Bukalapak launched an up to US$1.13 billion initial public offering ahead of next month’s listing, marking the country’s biggest issue in more than a decade amid rising investor appetite for tech stocks in a region boasting a growing consumer class, according to a term sheet seen by Reuters.

The e-commerce company, which counts Singapore sovereign investor GIC and Microsoft among its backers, is set to be valued at US$5.6 billion at the top end of a price range, doubling the company’s valuation from two years ago.
