The Temasek and Mastercard-backed company's listing could give it a valuation of about $5.5 billion to $7 billion,according to the report.

Pine Labs did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

The company's top boss told Reuters in October Pine Labs was considering an IPO in as little as a year, but had declined to specify whether it would be an overseas listing.
