The Indonesia-based ride-hailing company Go-Jek, has announced the closure of its Series F round. Since the company has not revealed any numbers, it is rumored that Go-Jek has raised more than $1 billion.

Go-Jek, which is also a competitor of Grab in Southeast Asia, has raised the amount backed by existing investors such as Google, JD.com and Tencent, with Mitsubishi Corporation and Provident Capital also participating in the effort.

The valuations of the company have yet not been confirmed, but sources tell us that it amounts to around $9.5 billion.

Go-Jek initially started out with motorbike taxis in 2015, and later expanded its business to private cars, taxis and more. The company also expects to deepen its presence in its home market, Indonesia, as well as Singapore, Vietnam, and Thailand. It is also looking to enter the Philippines, where its operations license got rejected.

Nadiem Makarim, CEO of Go-Jek Group, said in a statement,

He further added,

In Indonesia, Go-Jek deals in several different businesses including transportation, food delivery, services on demand, payment, and financial services. The company covers 204 cities, with around 2 million drivers, and 400,000 merchants.

Grab, on the other hand, is leading the domain after buying Uber’s local business and while operating in eight countries. It has closed three billion rides to date and boasts its revenue for 2018 to be around $1 billion.

Go-Jek claims to have gathered 130 million downloads while covering just 3 markets.
