Uber is bowing out in China.
The San Francisco-based ride-hailing company is letting its Chinese operations merge with its main rival in that region –– Didi Chuxing.
The new, combined company is expected to be worth $35 billion, and Uber China will still own roughly 20 percent of the operations. That seems like a pretty good deal, since it was only controlling, at most, 20 percent of the ride-hailing market there.
Plus, Didi is going to make a $1 billion investment in Uber's other, more profitable operations.
Uber has reportedly lost $2 billion in China already and was spending about $1 billion each year trying to capture more of the market.
China just legalized app-based ride-hailing services last week. The merger is still waiting on approval from China's government.
