Bertelsmann Asia Investments Score
In 2019, Bertelsmann Asia Investments (BAI) generated more than €200 million in
proceeds from the sale of former holdings, a BAI record. Most of this sum came
from the sale of shares in the live-streaming and short-video platform Bigo. The
platform, in which BAI first invested in 2015, rapidly developed into one of the most
successful video platforms in Southeast Asia, India and the Middle East with the
apps Bigo Live, Likee and IMO. BAI’s shares in the Chinese bike-sharing service
provider Hellobike and the social network Momo were also successfully sold.
