Bridgetown Holdings Limited

General Information

We intend to focus our search on a target with operations or prospective operations in the technology, financial services, or media sectors, which we refer to as the “new economy sectors”, in Southeast Asia.

Note: Peter Thiel, a co-founder of PayPal and the founder of Thiel Capital, is a backer of this newly organized blank check company or SPAC (special-purpose acquisition company).

From the prospectus: We believe that Southeast Asia is entering a new era of economic growth, particularly in the new economy sectors, which we expect will result in attractive initial business combination opportunities for attractive risk-adjusted returns. (The Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or ASEAN, includes Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam, Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos. With a population of 649 million and a nominal GDP of approximately $3 trillion in 2018, ASEAN is fast becoming a major regional economic force and a driver of global growth.)

Our sponsor is Bridgetown LLC, which has been formed as a collaboration between Pacific Century and Thiel Capital.

Note: Affiliates of our sponsor, including FWD, a pan-Asian life insurance company, have indicated an interest in buying up to $200 million of units in this offering.

**The size of this IPO was increased to 55 million units, up from 50 million, in an SEC filing dated Oct. 13, 2020.
