Uber rival Didi reportedly missed its December ride targets by 26 percentage points, according to a report by The Information.

The Chinese ride-sharing company is in the middle of a concerted global push, reportedly buying major Brazilian player 99 and raising $4 billion to expand into Mexico and Taiwan.

Didi was aiming for 70 percent growth in rides during the crucial holiday month but saw only 44 percent growth, The Information reports, citing a source familiar with the company.

That still amounts to 25 million average daily rides for December — a hard number to ignore in the ride-sharing wars.
