Grab Tan Hooi Ling

27th May 2023 – Southeast Asia ride-hailing & super-app Grab ($11 billion market capitalization 26/5/23) co-founder Tan Hooi Ling (Malaysia citizen, estimated $200 million net worth) has announced to step down from operational roles & directorship at the end of 2023 and to remain as Grab advisor.  Tan Hooi Ling co-founded Grab with CEO Anthony Tan in 2012 and listed Grab on Nasdaq in a SPAC IPO in 2021 at $40 billion value.  Grab (25/5/23): Grab Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: GRAB) today announced that Tan Hooi Ling has informed its board of directors of her intention to step down from her operating roles at Grab, including her directorship, by the end of 2023. Tan will be transitioning into an advisory role with Grab moving forward.  Tan co-founded Grab with Anthony Tan, Group CEO, in 2012, and worked at other companies in the US before rejoining Grab in April 2015. She led various operations and technology teams as COO until the appointment of Alex Hungate in January 2022. She currently leads Grab’s technology organization, and is mentoring the next-generation of technology leaders, including Suthen Thomas, Grab’s Group Chief Technology Officer, and Philipp Kandal, Chief Product Officer. Tan has also served as a member of Grab’s Board of Directors since its public listing in December 2021.”  In 2022, Grab was facing potential investigation and class action lawsuit after numerous law firms in United States announced Grab possible violation of United States federal securities laws after investors suffered losses from 37% in a day to more than 70% from IPO price just 4 months after IPO.  Grab shares had fell more than 70% from its IPO price in 4 months (Dec 2021 to March 2022), and with the financial update on 3rd March 2022 reporting revenue decline of 44%  from the previous quarter & $1.1 billion quarterly loss, the share price fell 37% within a day.

 

 

Grab Faces Investigation & Class Action Lawsuit, Falls 70% from IPO Price in 4 Months

Grab, Southeast Asia Ride-hailing and Superapp

11th March 2022 – Grab, Southeast Asia Ride-Hailing & Super App, is facing potential investigation and class action lawsuit after numerous law firms in United States announced Grab possible violation of United States federal securities laws after investors suffered losses from 37% in a day to more than 70% from IPO price just 4 months after IPO.  Grab shares had fell more than 70% from its IPO price in 4 months (Dec 2021 to March 2022), and with the latest financial update on 3rd March 2022 reporting revenue decline of 44%  from the previous quarter & $1.1 billion quarterly loss, the share price fell 37% within a day.  In the December 2021 IPO through a SPAC merger with Altimeter Growth Corp, Grab had claimed: “mobility business has been rising as lockdowns have been relaxed. Our payments business also continues to grow. We’re seeing all strong signs.”  But in the March 2022 financial update, Grab attributed the poor financial results to “investing heavily” in driver incentives and stated that it would take one or two quarters “to get that equilibrium between drivers and riders, between supply and demand.”  See below for list of law firms announcing the investigation and for investors to file claims. (IPO ~ Initial Public Offering)

SPAC (Special Purpose Acquisition Company) is also popularly referred to as a blank cheque company, that allows the listed company without any existing businesses to raise capital through an IPO (initial public offering), and thereafter use the capital to invest into companies.
