Read the Memo Forrest Li Sent Employees As Shopee Prepares

  • A 1,000-word internal staff memo outlines Shopee’s 12-18-month plan to achieve self-sufficiency.
  • The company’s executive team will temporarily forgo cash compensation, per the memo.
  • Once the darling of the investment community, Sea does not anticipate being able to raise funds now.

Shopee, the Singapore-based ecommerce giant and one-time investment-community darling, is facing bleak fundraising prospects in the current volatile market — and it appears to be bracing for the worst.

  • Hurricane Fiona made landfall in Puerto Rico’s southwest coast on Sunday afternoon.

  • Rising global temperatures contribute to more intense storms, according to a growing body of research.

Four people have been killed due to the catastrophic flooding and high-speed winds from Hurricane Fiona.
