We probably do not need to recap the financial problems that homegrown grocery delivery startup honestbee is facing. 

A combination of poor capital management, as well as poor cap table management has sunk the company into around S$313 million in debt.

(Note: A capitalisation table or cap table is a table providing an analysis of a company’s percentages of ownership, equity dilution, and value of equity in each round of investment by founders, investors, and other owners)

Majority of the debt is owed towards ex-chairman Brian Koo and his associates — it amounts to around S$258 million, which makes up almost 90 per cent of the company’s debt.

Koo is also a key investor and shareholder of honestbee; and his family controls South Korean tech giant LG.
