Investing.com – Didi Global (NYSE: DIDI ) rose 10% in premarket trading on Thursday, after debuting as a listed company a day earlier.
The shares of the Chinese ride-hailing company will be added to the FTSE global equity indices in a week.
The shares closed at $14.14 on Wednesday, not too far from the $14 initial public offering price. They rose to a high of $16.92 shortly after they opened for trading on Wednesday.
Didi operates in more than 4,000 locations in 15 countries, though China mobility represents the bulk of revenue.
The company, still loss-making, is facing an antitrust probe in China, part of a wider crackdown by the authorities against the country’s internet giants, according to reports.
