Uber si prepara ad annunciare l’acquisizione della rivale di Dubai ‘Careem Networks FZ’. Lo riporta l’agenzia Bloomberg citando alcune fonti, secondo le quali l’operazione ha un valore di 3,1 miliardi di dollari (USD) ed è parte in contanti e parte in titoli convertibili in azioni Uber quando l’app per auto cin conducente sarà quotata.

Con l’acquisizione Uber si rafforza in vista dell’atteso sbarco in Borsa, in quelle che potrebbe essere una delle maggiori initial public offering del New York Stock Exchange. Uber potrebbe infatti essere valutata fino a 120 miliardi di dollari (USD).

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
