Didi Chuxing, the ride-sharing giant of China and likely the most valuable startup in the world, just bought a controlling stake in 99, a leading ride-sharing app in Brazil. Now, on the heels of getting a massive $4 billion investment of its own, it appears that Didi is looking to double down the Latin American region.
Didi will be acquiring the company for around $600 million.
The companies did not disclose the stake acquired nor the value, but two people familiar with the deal told Reuters that the transaction would value 99 at over $1 billion and that Didi would hold a ´significant majority´ of the Brazilian firm. To date, Didi is a large investor in Southeast Asia's GrabTaxi Holdings Pte. All three companies, including 99, are now backed by SoftBank - and yet in places outside of China, Didi is competing with Uber.
Didi past year became Asia's most valuable start-up company.
Pence to head US delegation for PyeongChang Winter Olympics North Korea has yet to comment on the South's offer, which is in the spirit of the original deal and even goes beyond it. As a result of the talks Tuesday, NKorea will send a delegation to the Olympics being held in Pyeongchang this year.
To date, Didi has made only three acquisitions to grow, all in its home market of China. São Paulo-based 99, which was founded in 2013, has raised around $240 million in funding with notable backers including Qualcomm, SoftBank, and none other than Didi Chuxing itself, which led its $100 million series C round last January. Technology news site The Information had previously reported about talks between the two companies. Similar to Uber, Didi Chuxing offers smartphone-based vehicle services, such as carpooling, taxis, and premium cars with drivers.
The 99 application was launched in 2012 as a taxi application, and at the time was called 99Taxis.
Cheng Wei, founder and chief executive of Didi, said in Wednesday´s statement that "globalization is a top strategic priority for Didi". The company has had such a stronghold in Mexico that few competitors - including 99 - were willing to attempt an expansion into what was the company's third-biggest country market in 2015.
