SoftBank Calls For Merger Between Uber And Ola In India

ANI Technologies Private Limited (Ola) is looking to acquire Uber India Technology and Uber India Systems Pvt Ltd from Uber Technologies, Inc. SoftBank Group Corp. (TSE:9984) has called for a merger between ANI Technologies and Uber as part of its planned consolidation in Asia’s fast-growing ride hailing app market. The move is said to be driven by SoftBank in order to avoid the drain of resources on both operations as a result of the fierce rivalry in India. SoftBank will benefit from the merger, as the single combined entity will continue to be controlled by SoftBank while simultaneously ending the rivalry and stopping what can be considered a wasteful drain on resources. The talks, facilitated by SoftBank, which is an investor in Uber Technologies, Inc. and ANI Technologies, have been going on for nearly a year, according to sources close to the development. “Talks have been on between the senior executives of both the firms (Uber and Ola),” said one of the persons with direct knowledge of the talks, declining to state who the officials are given that the information is not public yet. “The deal may be closed in a couple of months,” the person added. Another source added that SoftBank is in favor of ANI Technologies acquiring Uber’s India business, but the finer details of the deal are being discussed. Both companies are looking at having a controlling stake in the combined entity, which is also why the talks have been progressing relatively slowly so far. SoftBank declined to comment on the development, while an Uber spokesperson denied that any such talks on a potential merger or acquisition are currently on. According to another news report, an ANI Technologies spokesperson declined to comment on this development.

The finer details of the deal are still under discussion and will be revealed in the coming months. As per the Business Standard report, the person quoted above didn’t reveal the executives involved in the deal at the present but went on to inform that the deal is being negotiated by SoftBank, which is an investor in both the companies. The report stated that merger talks, which have been ongoing close to a year now, have gathered intensity in the last few weeks. As per The Hindu Business Line, Ola has not denied reports about the merger talks, Uber says it will focus on organic growth. As per The Indian Express article, when contacted by IndianExpress.com, both, Uber India and Ola, denied that any merger talks were underway. However, sources in the know of the developments suggested that any such merger will only happen if Uber holds a majority stake in the merged entity. According to a news report, on reaching out, Ola spokesperson said, “In India’s transformative digital journey, Ola will always be an active and integral part of decades to come. SoftBank and all other investors are committed to realizing this ambition. Ola is always actively looking for opportunities for expansion of its footprint.” In an email reply to Inc42, Uber quoted its Dara Khosrowshahi, Chief Executive Officer of Uber saying, “The company will invest whatever we have to in order to succeed in India.” Dara Khosrowshahi said that the company will “look at any deals that can add value to its partners and shareholders, but we believe in controlling our own destiny in India”.
