China's Didi seeks to raise up to $2 billion amid Uber revival

2019/7/21 11:03:10
Chinese ride-hailing company Didi Chuxing Technology Co. is looking to raise fresh funds in the hope that investor enthusiasm in the sector has recovered after initial public offerings of Uber Technologies Inc. and Lyft Inc.
Didi, founded in 2012, is ubiquitous in many Chinese cities. Like Uber and Lyft, it is also unprofitable. A company executive in April said that for every ride in China it facilitated for the three months ended December, Didi lost on average 2% of the fare paid.
Didi was valued at $56 billion after it raised funds from investors in 2017, people familiar with the matter said at the time. At the new valuation, Didi would rank in the top three private tech companies globally, after Ant Financial Services Group and Bytedance Ltd. The increase in valuation is modest, reflecting the subdued environment for tech companies, especially in China. Uber, which owns 15.4% of Didi, implied in its initial public offering documents earlier this year that the Chinese company was valued at $51.6 billion at the end of December last year.
