Softbank Reportedly Seeking Control Of WeWork Via Financing Deal

WeWork co-founder Miguel McKelvey (middle) image: Collision Conf on Flickr According to a new report from Reuters, Softbank has put together a financing deal for WeWork that would give it control over the embattled shared office space company. Reuters reports the financing deal has been structured in a way that'll increase Softbank's stake in WeWork, atop a roughly one-third stake it already owns, and also further decrease the influence/voting control of co-founder Adam Neumann. An unnamed source cited by Reuters said WeWork risks running out of cash as early as the end of December if it doesn't raise more money. Even amid cash burn concerns, WeWork is said to be opening new locations at breakneck speed, a situation that likely escalates its cash burn. Reuters, citing an analysis of WeWork's website,  reports  WeWork has opened nearly as many new locations in the last 3 and a half months as it did in the first half of this year. WeWork's website also

DOJ Said To Be Digging Deeper Into Google's Looker Acquisition

Looker CEO Frank Bien image: Looker According to a Bloomberg report , antitrust officials at the U.S. Department of Justice have kicked off an in-depth review of Google's proposed $2.6 billion acquisition of Looker, a Santa Cruz-based data analytics startup. Bloomberg reports DOJ antitrust officials are seeking more information from both companies to determine if the acquisition harms competition. Antitrust officials traditionally review acquisitions of such caliber so there just might be no cause for alarm. However, the DOJ seeking additional information plausibly signals increased scrutiny of tech giants, which have been the focus of recent antitrust-related investigations. In July, the DOJ announced  that its antitrust unit was "reviewing whether and how market-leading online platforms have achieved market power and are engaging in practices that have reduced competition, stifled innovation, or otherwise harmed consumers." It said its review will cons

Uber Scoops Up Cornershop

image: Cornershop Uber has announced it's agreed to acquire a majority stake in Cornershop, a grocery delivery startup that serves the Latin American market. Cornershop may sound familiar, as Walmart actually entered a deal to acquire it last year (for $225 million) but saw its proposed deal later  blocked by Mexican antitrust regulators . With Walmart's proposed acquisition in limbo, it appears Uber swooped in to scoop up Cornershop, for an undisclosed sum. Uber's acquisition is expected to close by early next year, subject to regulatory approval. Cornershop was founded in 2015, and grew to be a leading online grocery provider in Chile and Mexico. The Chile-based startup also recently launched in Peru and Toronto, Canada. According to Crunchbase data , Cornershop has raised some $32 million in total funding, including a $6.7 million Series A  in April 2016. Jackson Square Ventures and ALLVP led the Series A, with participation from the likes of Accel, Endeavor

SAP CEO Bill McDermott Steps Down

SAP CEO Bill McDermott image: SAP SAP has announced a new leadership change that involves Bill McDermott, its CEO for nine years running, stepping down from that position. McDermott has stepped down (effective already) after 9 years as CEO, 11 years as a member of its executive board, and 17 years in total at the German software giant. SAP executives Jennifer Morgan and Christian Klein have succeeded McDermott as co-CEOs, adopting a leadership method (co-CEO structure) that's known to be followed by two other software giants; Oracle and Salesforce. McDermott will remain in advisory role until the end of this year to ensure a smooth transition. “Every CEO dreams of being able to transition a company to its next generation from a position of significant strength,” McDermott said in a statement. “When you look at where we were and where we are, I simply could not be prouder of what this company has achieved over the past decade. I am thankful for the opportunity to l

Fitbit To Shift Manufacturing Outside China

Fitbit CEO James Park Photo by Kimberly White/Getty Images for TechCrunch Fitbit has announced  that it's embarked on a plan to move manufacturing operations for all of its trackers and smartwatches outside China, citing tariffs, from a U.S.-China trade war, as the reason. Fitbit expects the plan to go into effect beginning January 2020. “In 2018, in response to the ongoing threat of tariffs, we began exploring potential alternatives to China. As a result of these explorations, we have made changes to our supply chain and manufacturing operations and have additional changes underway,” Fitbit CFO Ron Kisling said in a statement. Fitbit says it'll provide more details on its manufacturing shift at its upcoming Q3 earnings conference call. Fitbit didn't disclose the region it plans to shift manufacturing to. In June, the famed smartwatch maker was part of a cohort of companies that filed letters of opposition to the Trump Administration's plan to impose more tari

Goldman Reviewing Role In Megvii IPO After U.S. Blacklist

Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon Photograph by Stuart Isett for Fortune Most Powerful Women Goldman Sachs has said it's reviewing its role in the planned IPO of Megvii, a high-valued Chinese AI startup that filed to go public in August. The review follows the placement of Megvii on a human rights blacklist by the U.S. government. Megvii is an Alibaba-backed AI startup that develops facial recognition and deep-learning software. It sells its software to both private customers and Chinese government entities, the latter which is the driving reason behind its blacklist [the U.S. government alleges Megvii, alongside 27 other Chinese firms, facilitated human rights abuses in China's Xinjiang region ]. SenseTime, another well-known Chinese AI startup, is among the blacklisted firms. In an e-mail to Reuters , Goldman Sachs said it was “evaluating [its role in Megvii's planned IPO] in light of the recent developments”. Goldman is a lead underwriter, alongside JPMorgan C

Group Nine Scoops Up PopSugar

Group Nine CEO Ben Lerer Photo by Brian Ach/Getty Images for TechCrunch There seems to be significant consolidation going on in the digital media world. Not long ago, Vox Media, one of the leading digital media companies, that's behind popular news sites like The Verge and Recode , acquired New York Media , a long-existing media house behind the popular New York Magazine . Now, shortly after that acquisition, Group Nine, another top media brand, has agreed to acquire PopSugar, a women-focused media publisher that's backed by tens of millions in funding. According to the Wall Street Journal , the acquisition was a $300 million all-stock deal that valued Group Nine at more than $600 million. A combined entity of Group Nine and PopSugar, that'll retain the Group Nine Media name, is now worth about $1 billion according to the Journal.

Omni Said To Be In Acqui-Hire Talks With Coinbase

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong Photo by Anthony Harvey/Getty Images for TechCrunch According to a report from TechCrunch , Omni Rentals, a San Francisco-based physical storage and rentals startup whose rentals business is said to be not going so well, is in talks to sell its engineering team to Coinbase after also garnering interest from Thumbtack. Such deals are known as acqui-hires, where companies pay a particular amount to absorb the employees of another startup.  Acqui-hires many times involve struggling or shuttering startups that are seeking ways to keep its employees employed by offering them to another business. They're also a way for companies to recruit key talent from other firms in fields of interest. According to TechCrunch, Omni is in talks with Coinbase to gobble up some of its engineering staff, who would work on Coinbase Earn, a service that rewards users with crypto for completing online educational programs. Earn was a standalone startup led by former Co

Tubi CEO Farhad Massoudi image: Tubi According to a report from The Information , Tubi TV, an ad supported streaming service, is in talks to raise around $150 million in new funding, which would be the largest it's ever raised if it pulls through. The San Francisco-based streaming service has already raised tens of millions in funding, the last known being a $25 million infusion from Silicon Valley Bank early this year. A previous $20 million round , in 2017, was also led by Jump Capital, with participation from Foundation Capital, Danhua Capital and Cota Capital. Tubi TV is one of several companies that have sprouted up in recent years to offer a free ad-supported alternatives to top video streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. Such (free) streaming services conventionally license older movies and titles from studios on "non-exclusive" terms, meaning it's usually available on other streaming services. Tubi, launched in 2014, has partnered with and tap

Apple Antitrust Probers Said To Have Sought Details From Spotify

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek image: Magnus Höij on Flickr According to a report from Reuters , U.S. lawmakers who are probing Apple for alleged anti-competitive behavior have sought information from Spotify, the popular music streaming company, which has in the past accused Apple of anti-competitive behavior . Reuters reports the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee reached out to Spotify with requests for information, and also narrowed its requests with follow-up calls. Spotify and other developers have accused Apple of imposing rules that impede distribution on its App Store, the only path for app developers to reach more than 900 million iPhone users. Spotify's previous complaint  alleged Apple "makes it harder and harder for companies" to offer rival streaming services "all for the sake of tilting the field to favor its own services and disadvantaging those it is playing against". Spotify's complaint was filed in the EU, a region known

DraftKings Reportedly Raising Funding At A $2 Billion Valuation

DraftKings CEO Jason Robins Photo by Steve Jennings/Getty Images for TechCrunch According to a new report from Business Insider , DraftKings, a popular sports betting startup, is raising "hundreds of millions" of dollars in new funding that could value it as much as $2 billion.

The Boston-based company's last known funding came from casino giant Caesars , whose investment was part of a strategic partnership. Other notable DraftKings investors include The Madison Square Garden Co., Kraft Group, which owns the New England Patriots, the Raine Group and Eldridge Industries. DraftKings was founded in 2012, and offers fantasy sports contests in 8 countries including the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia.

Docker Trying To Raise Cash Amid "Significant Challenges"

Docker CEO Rob Bearden image: Docker Docker, a one-time superhot cloud software startup that cracked a $1 billion valuation in 2015, is apparently having some struggles, with CNBC reporting  of a company-wide email that acknowledged challenges as Docker tries to raise more funding. In an email [viewed and reported by CNBC] sent to Docker employees, its CEO Rob Bearden, who took up the position in May , thanked employees for “persevering in spite of the lack of clarity we’ve had these past few weeks.” He also made mention of  “uncertainty” at Docker, that “brings with it significant challenges”. “As shared at the last All Hands, we have been engaging with investors to secure more financing to continue to execute on our strategy.” Bearden, who is Docker's fourth CEO since inception, and most recently served as CEO at Hortonworks, said. “I wanted to share a quick update on where we stand.

The acquisition price is not disclosed, but the Wall Street Journal reports  it was an all-stock deal valued at $105 million. According to the Journal, the acquisition would give New York Media about 12% ownership in a combined entity consisting of Vox Media's and New York Media's media properties. In simple terms, the acquisition is said to be more of a merger between both companies than an outright acquisition that'll involve one party becoming a subsidiary of the other. According to the Wall Street Journal, the all-stock acquisition valued Vox Media at $750 million, do

WeWork Has Reportedly Considered Laying Off One-Third Of Its Employees

WeWork CEO Adam Neumann Photo by Noam Galai/Getty Images for TechCrunch According to a report from The Information , WeWork, whose CEO Adam Neumann just stepped down  amid an IPO debacle, has considered laying off as many as 5,000 employees, one-third of its workforce, to cut costs. The Information reports WeWork's executives discussed ways to reduce costs with bankers, and came up with the lay-off consideration. Other cost-cutting ideas also said to have been discussed includes slowing its expansion and shuttering side business related to education and housing. Such moves are likely aimed at restoring investor confidence after a cold reception stemming from its S-1 filing. A 5,000-person layoff doesn't sound at all good, and may count as one of the highest headcount cuts in a long time. However, with skyrocketing losses , it wouldn't be really surprising if WeWork pulls such a move. Companies looking to go public or those that have already gone public often lo

Pokémon Go Creator Niantic Raises $300M, Valued At $9B

Niantic , an augmented reality (AR) company whose products include the famous  Pokémon Go game, has raised a big new round of funding. It's raised $300mn in funding at a valuation of $9bn. All the funding came from just one investor; Coatue , a New York-based hedge fund famous for investing in many blue-chip tech startups. With its new funding, Niantic says it'll invest in current games and new apps and expand its AR developer platform called Lightship . The company says it's set on building the "real-world metaverse," jumping on the bandwagon popularized by Facebook's parent firm, Meta.  The base for Niantic's metaverse vision is the Lightship developer platform which it launched this month. It's a platform for developers to build augmented reality apps and experiences, drawing from Niantic's tools that helped create its hit  Pokémon Go game. To draw creators to Lightship, Niantic has also set up a $20mn venture fund to invest in AR startups

Deal: Workday Buys Ohio Startup Vndly For $510M

Workday (NASDAQ: WDAY), the famous HR/finance software vendor, has made a big new acquisition to support its platform. The company will acquire Vndly , a software platform for companies to manage contract workers. Vndly fits in well in Workday's overall software suite, and the rationale behind the purchase is clear. Vndly is an Ohio-based startup. Workday will pay $510mn to buy it, marking one of Ohio's biggest startup exits this year. Vndly has raised roughly $60mn from VCs, so a $510mn exit is very lucrative and more so for a startup founded just four years ago .  Before now, Vndly and Workday were already close allies. Vndly's platform is integrated with Workday's, with official certification to go. The Mason, Ohio-based startup is part of Workday's global network of endorsed software partners, so Workday didn't even have to look far to snatch its latest acquisition.  Vndly was founded in 2017 by two entrepreneurs,  Shashank Saxena and Narayana Surabhi .

Amazon, Apple Fined $230M For Reseller Collusion In Italy

Tech giants Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) have been handed sizeable fines by the Italian government following an investigation into alleged reseller collusion between both companies. Amazon was fined €135mn ($151mn) and Apple  €69mn ($78mn), totaling $229mn .  The fine was levied by the  Italian Competition Authority . According to the agency, Apple and Amazon had a contractual agreement to allow  select resellers to sell Apple and Beats products on Amazon's Italian marketplace. The agency said that the selection was applied in a "discriminatory" way that violated European Union rules and affected price competition. According to the  Italian Competition Authority, at least 70% of local consumer electronics purchases are made on Amazon, making it a dominant retailer. This dominance, therefore, demands a "level playing field" for retailers that sell on Amazon's marketplace, the agency said. This is the nth time Amazon is getting in the cr

Antitrust: US DOJ Sues To Block Major Sugar Industry Merger

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is freshly on the antitrust circuit, seeking to block a merger it deems detrimental to consumers. The agency has filed a lawsuit to block the sale of  Imperial Sugar , a leading American sugar producer, to rival  U.S. Sugar . The DOJ says the proposed deal will make just two sugar producers account for an "overwhelming majority" of refined sugar sales in the U.S. Southeast, U.S. Sugar being one of the two producers. This concentration of power would make consumers pay more for refined sugar, the DOJ says.  Imperial Sugar is owned by Louis Dreyfus Company, a privately-held agricultural giant based in the Netherlands. The company agreed to sell Imperial to rival U.S. Sugar for the sum of $315mn this March.  U.S. Sugar is another privately-held agricultural giant headquartered in Florida. It can produce up to 850,000 tons of sugar annually at its refinery plant in Florida, and buying Imperial would give it two more sugar plants in Kentuc

Alt-Meat Maker Impossible Foods Raises $500M In Fresh Funding

A leading maker of plant-based meat substitutes, Impossible Foods , has obtained a fresh cash infusion from VCs. It has  raised $500mn in new funding, bringing the total amount of funding it has raised since inception to $2bn.  The latest round was provided entirely by existing investors doubling down on Impossible Foods.  Mirae Asset Global , a Korean investment firm, led the round and was joined by other unnamed existing investors.  It's evident that investors are longing for Impossible Foods, a leading brand in the nascent market for plant-based meat substitutes. There's clearly huge potential for plant-based meat substitutes, driven by an increasing vegan population and the appeal to lower the carbon footprint that spurs from meat consumption. To that end, Impossible Foods is growing rapidly. Its products can now be found in more than 20,000 retail stores, compared to 150 as of March 2020, and 40,000 restaurants globally. Over the past year, Impossible has launched in ne

Deal: KKR Makes $37B Buyout Offer For Telecom Italia

Private equity giant KKR (NYSE: KKR) has ventured into Italy for its latest buyout deal. The firm has offered to buy Telecom Italia (BIT: TIT), the largest telecom provider in Italy, in a deal worth  €33bn ($37bn), including debt. KKR offered 0.505 Euros in cash for each outstanding  Telecom Italia share, a 46% premium to the last closing share price before the offer. That sums up to  €10.7bn ($12bn) in cash to be paid for Telecom Italia, and including the telecom firm's large net debt of €22.5bn ($25bn) sums up to $37bn in total.  KKR's offer is non-binding and must be approved by Telecom Italia's board members and majority shareholders before the deal goes through. Approval must also come from the Italian government, which was veto power over the takeover of the formerly state-owned telecoms firm.  Telecom Italia gave no indication that it'll approve the deal. If approval is given, it'll mark one of the biggest buyout deals of a European company by an America

Earnings: Nvidia Is On A Tear

Chipmaking giant Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) has unveiled the financial results for its latest fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2021. The company reported a sharp rise in sales that can only be described as being on a tear. Nvidia posted $7.1bn in revenue in the quarter, up 50% year-over-year . The large growth was driven mostly by the company's data center sales, which increased 55% year-over-year to $2.9bn. Similarly, Nvidia's gaming revenue rose 42% year-over-year to $3.2bn. Net income for the quarter was $2.5bn , up 4% from the same period last year. It was an outstanding quarter all-around for Nvidia, a beneficiary of the recent massive growth of the gaming industry and data center boom. Nvidia's GeForce graphics cards are very popular with gamers, and data center operators patronize Nvidia's high-performance graphics processors for artificial intelligence applications.  Save for data centers and gaming, Nvidia has other minor product lines, including automotive chip

Cyber: Apple Sues NSO Group Over Spyware Hacks

Tech giant Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) has filed a lawsuit against NSO Group , a controversial Israeli company that sells smartphone hacking tools and has been  implicated in the hacks and surveillance of many notable persons, including journalists, activists, and business executives, by state-sponsored actors. Apple has sued NSO Group for infecting iPhones with spyware to track users of interest. As part of the suit, the tech giant seeks a permanent injunction to ban NSO Group from using any Apple products. NSO Group is best known for its Pegasus spyware that can be covertly installed on mobile phones running most versions of iOS and Android. The company exploits vulnerabilities in both operating systems to introduce spyware into a phone without the user's knowledge. Pegasus was the center of a Washington Post investigation called "The Pegasus Project," revealing that the spyware was used to surveil over 1,000 identified notable individuals across countries with shoddy hu

Markets: Retail Giant Authentic Brands Scraps IPO Plans

Authentic Brands Group , a New York-based retail conglomerate, has suspended its plans for an initial public offering (IPO) after already filing an S-1 document with the US SEC. The company has instead opted to raise private funding to fund expansion in the main time. Authentic Brands Group's portfolio retail brands include apparel retailer Forever21 , men's suit maker Brooks Brothers , and department store chain Barneys New York . The company is akin to an old people's home where once-vibrant retail brands go to stay after they've gone past their peak. Authentic buys these befallen retail companies and makes money from what's left of them through licensing deals.  Over the years, Authentic has relied on hefty venture funding to assemble its constellation of old-guard brands. An IPO was supposed to raise even more money for expansion but has been set aside in favor of private funding.  Authentic is  rather selling  equity stakes to private equity firm CVC Capital

Samsara has raised nearly $1bn from VCs including Andreessen Horowitz, Tiger Global, and General Catalyst, with a valuation of $5.4bn from its last funding round. The company's co-founders sold a previous startup named Meraki to Cisco for $1.2bn . As expected, Samsara's S-1 filing gives a deep glimpse into the company's business with information not publicly disclosed before. The company has been rather secretive over the years, making this long-awaited information. We've extracted some important information so you don't have to, mostly the financial stuff.
