Sources familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal on Thursday that Uber employees and investors have tendered shares equal to around 20 percent of the company.
SoftBank and its co-investors have successfully acquired at least 13 percent of Uber, a major victory for Uber's new CEO and one that will give billions of dollars in cash to some of the company's earliest investors and employees.
Softbank will invest $1 billion into Uber in hopes of ridding investor concerns the tender offer lowers the value of remaining shares, the Wall Street Journal reported. As part of the deal, which the investment firm expects to close in January, SoftBank will also invest $1.25 billion directly into Uber.
"We have tremendous confidence in Uber's leadership and employees and are excited to support Uber".
The investor group is also buying about $1.25bn worth of new shares at a price that values the firm at nearly $70bn, a significantly higher price that is similar to what Uber shares fetched in its last fundraising round. However, under the deal, Uber will take a stake in Fair and the startup will become an exclusive partner with Uber, offering drivers the ability to lease cars. The Japanese conglomerate set a threshold for its bid at 14 percent and while it's now able to purchase almost 50 percent more than it originally planned, it's reportedly limiting its offer to a 15 percent stake.
