Ride-hailing firm Grab eyes expansion as it acquires Uber

26 March 2018

Uber's deal with Grab follows similar agreements with Didi Chuxing and Yandex.

The acquisition sees Grab pick up Uber's services and assets in Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam, while Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi takes a seat on Grab's board. Ending the long battle between the two ride-hailing firms, Uber will make its exit from the region in the upcoming months, and current users will have just two weeks left to book rides with the app. Khosrowshahi said that it will assist us in dueling down on our suggestions for expansion as we expend deliberately in the products and technology to generate the supreme customer experience on the planet. As you might have heard, history appears to be repeating itself as Uber is also reported to be giving up its Southeast Asia operations to another competitor, Grab. Around 500 Uber employees in Southeast Asia would move over to Grab.

Grab is a rapidly expanding ride-sharing, food delivery and financial services provider in the region. In its largest market Indonesia, it also offers services such as digital payments, food delivery and on-demand cleaning and body massage. Like the prior transactions, the deals free Uber to invest in other, more lucrative markets, while granting the company a stake in their competitors' expanding businesses, experts say.
