The stock plunged 12% to USD 6.88 at the close of Hong Kong trading on Friday, the biggest decline since the company launched its IPO.

Losses widened last quarter to USD 11.99 billion, compared with a USD 0.63 billion loss a year ago, reflecting the intense competition with Alibaba Group Holding.

Chairman and chief executive Wang Xing told analysts on a post-earnings conference call that he is taking more time to focus on the fundamentals.

The company has expanded at a breakneck pace into new businesses like ride-hailing and bicycle-sharing, while building up its market share in food delivery ahead of its USD 4.2 billion IPO in September.
