Chinese Company Didi Said To Merge Uber’s Chinese Operation For $35 Billion

Bloomberg, Eric Newcomer

Uber Technologies Inc. will merge its China business with Didi Chuxing, the dominant ride-hailing service in the country, according to people familiar with the matter.

The valuation of the combined ride-hailing company is $35 billion, the people said. Investors in Uber China, an entity owned by San Francisco-based Uber, Baidu Inc. and others, will receive a 20 percent stake in the combined company, the people said. Uber will continue to operate its own app in China for now.

Makes sense because Uber losses like $1 million a month just operating in China. But this is also interesting, this is a first for Uber to bow down and walk away.
