The following communication was made available by Altimeter Growth Corp. on Twitter on April 18, 2021.



On April 16, 2021, Brad Gerstner discussed the proposed Business Combination between Grab Holdings Inc. and Altimeter Growth Corp. on the “All-In Podcast” on YouTube. Set forth below is an approximate transcription of the relevant discussion.

From approximately 7:18-10:55:

Brad: “So what we did at Grab was we fought hard for the most open, unlocked, right, day one we could possibly get. In that case there were a lot of big shareholders who were on the board, so they’re deemed affiliates under section 16 of the securities law, so they can’t sell right, they’re deemed to be insiders, right, but at the end of the day all employees can sell. There’s a group of senior management that said hey, we want to voluntarily lock as a signal to the market, but all other employees in the company can sell, so there are over 5000 employees in the company. And all of the early shareholders can sell, on day one. And I think this was the first time I’ve seen this in this alternative IPO. So we have almost a third of the entire share base of the company that is available for sale on day one.”

Host: “Hey, Brad, can I ask one more question? The economics for Grab, are they better under your structure than they would have been for a traditional IPO to get the same amount of capital when they’re paying 7% to the underwriting bank?”

Brad: “You know, as we all know, Bill Gurley has laboriously pointed out and documented that there are two expenses to a traditional IPO, right? There is the upfront fee of 5.5 to 6%, whatever they are paying on the amount of capital raised, but he would argue that the much bigger expense, right, is the indirect cost of the structural underprice, right? So in a traditional IPO, let’s say you have a ten billion enterprise value raising a billion dollars. If it’s being underpriced, he would argue structurally by 40%, and we can all debate that, but that’s four-hundred million dollars of dilution to employees and to existing shareholders. I think everybody in the Grab process, both the buy-side portfolio managers from Fidelity, Janus, T-Rowe et cetera, as well as the company, believe that we got a 20-30% higher price than a bank would’ve got because of the conviction the portfolio managers had as a result of the significant investment we were making in the company, as a result of the fact that we were locking up our promote shares, our sponsor shares, for three years, and so if you say it’s 30% on a four billion dollar raise, that’s over a billion dollars of savings, right, over a billion dollars of indirect cost savings to the employees and the shareholders. And, like, for me, our north star is founders and so we literally have deconstructed the IPO at every step of the value chain and just say, you know, like Rich Barton, my thought partner in this, he was on the board of Netflix when it went public, took Zillow public, took Expedia public, and he said we can make this better at every step of the value chain. And so we’ve thought about it like a product and we’re building a capital markets business that says part of it, right, is eliminating the commission, part of it is getting a fair price, but part of it is curating that day one cap table, right? Because these companies are stepping into the public markets and, you know, as Rich has said and others have said, think about all of the curation that goes into a private cap table. Now, when you go public, Rich calls it a cap table randomization event, right? You lose total control over your cap table, right? Whereas in the case of Grab, we hand selected what we think are the world’s best public market shareholders to be their day one cap table. So it’s a very different outcome, and it’s not just about cost savings, it’s not just about trying to get a fairer price, it’s actually making the process better at each step of the value chain.”
