A tie-up with Grab would also play into SoftBank’s efforts to exert greater control over the global ride-sharing market. SoftBank also owns shares in Grab, Didi, India’s Ola and Brazil’s 99, and has publicly expressed interest in Lyft. An Uber investor told Reuters that shutting its Southeast Asia unit would allow the company to “print money” and make an IPO more realistic.
