Earlier this year, Trip.com planned a secondary listing in Hong Kong, but reversed track due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in industry-wide losses.

Shanghai-based online travel agency ​Trip.com​ (NASDAQ: TCOM), previously known as Ctrip, is in preliminary talks with financial and strategic investors, including domestic companies, over a take-private deal amidst increased scrutiny and audit requirements from US regulators and the ongoing Sino-US tensions, Reuters reported on Tuesday.

Trip.com initially planned a secondary listing at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, but reversed track due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in industry-wide losses, Reuters wrote, citing sources.

When contacted by KrASIA, a Trip.com representative declined to comment.

The company reported net revenue of RMB 4.7 billion (USD 669 million) during the first quarter of 2020, indicating a 42% year-on-year (YoY) plunge, while net loss reached RMB 5.4 billion (USD 754 million).
