BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese ride-hailing service Didi Chuxing Technology Co, China’s rival to Uber Technologies Inc, has raised $4 billion in a new round of funding, two sources familiar with the deal told Reuters on Thursday.

The round values the firm at close to $50 billion and pre-existing investor Softbank Group Corp <9984.T> is a participant, one of the people said.

The Wall Street Journal earlier reported the funding-raising on Thursday, and said that Abu Dhabi state fund Mubadala Capital also participated in the round.
