Didi shares fell as much as 8% in premarket trading Friday morning after China, where the company is based, announced a cybersecurity review of the company.
According to an English translation of China’s announcements, new users will not be able to register for Didi’s ride hailing service during the country’s cybersecurity review.
China’s move comes just two days after Didi held its IPO on the New York Stock Exchange. Shares of Didi were up about 5% in premarket trading before China released its announcement. The stock was poised to show another day of gains after closing up nearly 16% on Thursday.
