We intend to focus our search on a target with operations or prospective operations in the technology, digital media, financial technology, or digital services sectors, which we refer to as the “new economy sectors”, across Asia Pacific, in particular Southeast Asia and Australia.
Founded in 1999 and led by Patrick Grove and Luke Elliott, our sponsor, Catcha Group, is one of the earliest and most established internet-focused investment groups in Southeast Asia and Australia. Headquartered in Singapore and Malaysia and with over 20 years of operating experience, Catcha Group has a strong focus and deep local understanding of the region. Since its inception, Catcha Group has made over 50 investments globally which are held directly or indirectly, and brought six digital business from their early stages to a public listing or sale, with an aggregate valuation of over $1 billion. These include iProperty Group, which was acquired by REA Group Limited in 2016, as well as iCar Asia and Frontier Digital Ventures, which are both listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. iCar Asia is currently the subject of a buyout offer. Catcha Group also owns Wild Digital, which is a media company that organizes conferences across Southeast Asia that bring together many of the top entrepreneurs, executives and investors in the region every year.
