DOKU Secures 458 Billion Rupiah Funding from Apis Growth Fund II
Fresh money will be used for the development of some new offerings in business and consumer lines
DOKU announces $32 million (over 458 billion Rupiah) funding round from Apis Growth Fund II, a private equity fund managed by Apis Partners LLP, a UK-based asset manager that supports growing financial services and fintech businesses. DOKU is Apis Partners' first portfolio in Indonesia.
DOKU is a subsidiary of PT Elang Andalan Nusantara (EAN), a joint venture owned by Emtek and Alibaba. Based on Emtek's financial report, PT Kreatif Media Karya (KMK) holds a 55% stake in EAN's second-tier subsidiary. Furthermore, it is sold to a third party.
The transaction resulted in KMK to lose control in EAN and subsequently stopped consolidating EAN's financial statements to the Group's consolidated financial statements.
DOKU will use the fresh funds to accelerate the development of some new offerings for businesses and consumers, as well as to expand the company's geographical reach in providing access to digital payments for the Indonesian people.
“[..] We believe by supporting such company as DOKU, we will benefit from its proven experience. This collaboration with Apis Partners is a new chapter for DOKU and we are very excited to continue this partnership,” DOKU's Co-Founder and COO, Nabilah Alsagoff said during a virtual press conference, Thursday (5/8).
In an official statement, Apis Partners Managing Partner and Co-Founder Matteo Stefanel said, “We are delighted to partner with DOKU in Apis Partners' first investment in Indonesia, which reflects our trust in this country as an investment field. We are delighted to be working with a team that has built a market-leading organization [..],” he said.
