Didi Global has been dealing with a cybersecurity investigation in its home country and that’s finally about to reach its close. With it, Chinese regulators are reportedly advising the company to list its shares inHong Kong.

If these reports are true, it means Didi Global can finally go public overseas. It’s already listed in the U.S. on the New York Stock Exchange. However, this caused trouble in China when it sought to list shares there as well.

China has been cracking down on tech companies in general lately. In addition to that, it’s been even more strict with companies that list their shares in the U.S. This is the result of a continuing trade war between the two countries takes place.

With today’s news comes heavier-than-normal trading of DIDI stock. As of this writing, more than 61 million shares of the stock have been traded. That’s well above the company’s daily average trading volume of 25 million shares.

DIDI stock was up 11.5% as of Thursday afternoon but is down 32% since its initial public offering (IPO) earlier this year.
