SoftBank says considering investment in Uber but no final agreement reached
TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan’s SoftBank Group Corp (T:) said on Tuesday that it was considering investing in Uber Technologies Inc [UBER.UL] but there was no final agreement at this stage.
“If conditions on share price and a minimum of shares are not satisfactory for the SoftBank Group side, there is a possibility the SoftBank Group may not make an investment,” it said in a statement.
Uber said earlier this week that a planned deal with SoftBank and Dragoneer Investment Group was moving forward. The investment could be worth up to $10 billion, two people familiar with the matter previously told Reuters.
