Didi would effectively need to triple its platform sales to get to a mooted $100 bln valuation, @mak_robyn writes. Plus, unlike Grab, Didi still relies on ride-hailing in China for over 90% of its revenue. https://t.co/DCHDwExYrZ

Didi's mooted $100 bln target valuation in New York requires the same chunky acquisition multiple assigned to Southeast Asia's top SPAC target. A lower, Uber-like figure is more reasonable, says @mak_robyn https://t.co/sMxXBZiCk1 https://t.co/Pr0sM0FjJk

GoTo, the newly formed merger between Indonesia's Gojek and Tokopedia, will make gains in data analytics, helping it keep pace with $130 bln Sea. It hints at complexities in the pair’s reliance on third-party logistics too, writes @sharonlamhk https://t.co/dbLfOz1hWW https://t.co/LFAJECQryH

The success of $114 billion Sea's gaming unit is tied to third parties like backer Tencent. Developing more of its own hits like “Free Fire” will provide a more stable core to offset losses in areas like e-commerce as rivals like GoTo pile in: https://t.co/Ctbn9d63li @sharonlamhk https://t.co/PgUUQ4eZRy

Combining Gojek and Tokopedia creates a super-app powerhouse to rival Grab's $40 bln SPAC deal. The first transaction offers clues to the value of the second: ahead of an IPO, GoTo must demonstrate bigger is better, say @ugalani & @sharonlamhk https://t.co/8bahEYbwWZ https://t.co/epzTGuMFZu
