Walkers advises Gogoro Inc. on NASDAQ IPO

Walkers acted as Cayman Islands counsel to Gogoro Inc., Taiwan’s largest e-scooter manufacturer and a global leader in battery swapping technology, on its public listing on the NASDAQ following a successful merger with Poema Global Holdings Corp., a SPAC formed by Princeville Capital.  Gogoro began trading on the NASDAQ on 5 April 2022 with its ordinary shares and warrants under the new ticker symbols "GGR" and "GGROW", respectively. Gogoro raised at least US$335 million, of which US$295 million will come from private investment in public equity (PIPE) financing commitments received in connection with the deal.

The Walkers team was led by Singapore-based partner James Twigg, with support from senior associate Michael Kenny. Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati acted as lead counsel to Gogoro, and Kirkland & Ellis acted for Poema Global.
