[Asia News = Reporter Reakkana] Chinese ride-hailing giant Didi has denied a report that it’s considering going private to appease Chinese authorities. BBC reported that Its shares had soared by almost 50% in Thursday's pre-market trade after the Wall Street Journal report.

Since making its US market debut a month ago the company has been targeted by authorities in Beijing. Meanwhile, some US senators have called on its financial markets regulator to investigate Chinese share listings. The statement came in response to a Wall Street Journal report, which cited people familiar with the matter while saying Didi was considering delisting its share in the US as it faced increasing pressure from regulators in China.

Two days after Didi shares started trading on the New York Stock Exchange, China's internet regulator ordered online stores not to offer its app, saying it illegally collected users' personal data. That sent the company's market value down sharply and it has now fallen by around a third since Didi raised $4.4bn (£3.15bn) in its initial public offering (IPO) a month ago. In the letter to the head of the Securities and Exchanges Commission, the seven lawmakers cited losses sustained by Didi investors after Beijing took action against the company.
