Rakuten has announced today in its "Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2015 Financial Results" that the company is going to exit its e-commerce marketplace businesses in Malaysia, Singapore & Indonesia.

While Rakuten will still continue its marketplace business in Taiwan, the company seems to withdraw all its existing e-commerce businesses from Southeast Asia, including Thailand's Tarad which according to our sources, is "in the midst of selling".

No reasons are given though behind its withdrawal, which could be due to slow growth and local competitions. Rakuten did somehow reveal that this is part of its "Vision 2020" plan.
