KUALA LUMPUR: Singapore-incorporated merchant commerce platform Pine Labs has acquired e-commerce and fintech firm Fave in a cash and equity deal valued at more than US$45 million, for joint global expansion, the companies said on Tuesday (Apr 13).

In a joint statement, the companies said Fave's investors will receive an all-cash payout, while founders and key Fave employees will receive both cash and shares of Pine Labs.

Fave counts Sequoia India, China-based SIG Asia Investments and Indonesian venture capital firm Venturra Capital as its investors. 

Pine Labs became an investor in Fave last July, when both formed a strategic partnership.

Fave operates in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, after acquiring Groupon's businesses in those markets in 2016 and 2017. It will be launching in India this year.
