SoftBank Group Corp (OTC: SFTBY)-backed ride-hailing firm Grab is looking to go public in the United States in 2021, Reuters reported Monday.

What Happened: The Singapore-based Grab — which offers services akin to Uber Inc (NYSE: UBER) in multiple Southeast Asian countries — is planning an IPO bolstered by investor appetite, people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The offering could raise $2 billion, which would make it the largest overseas share offering by a Southeast Asian company. 

“The market is good and the business is doing better than before. This should work well for public markets,” according to a Reuters source.

Why It Matters: Grab, also backed by Japan’s Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc (NYSE: MUFG), is the region’s most valuable startup worth more than $16 billion, noted Reuters.
