SAO PAULO/MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Softbank-backed Latin American delivery app Rappi has laid off 6% of its workforce, the company said in a statement, without providing a raw number on the job cuts.

Rappi said Softbank Group Corp (9984.T) , which is a major shareholder and has a board seat, was involved in the decision, adding the company intends to invest in technology and “user experience” teams.
