A German Consortium Reportedly Mulls Acquisition Of Here Mapping Unit From Nokia Corp

Germany's big-three premium -brand auto makers are preparing to launch a formal bid to acquire a majority stake in Nokia Corporation's (HLSE:NOK1V)Here mapping unit, in a consortium that includes Chinese technology group Baidu, Inc. (NasdaqGS:BIDU) and values Here at considerably more than €2 billion, according to people familiar with the situation. Bayerische Motoren Werke Aktiengesellschaft (DB:BMW), AUDI AG (DB:NSU), and Daimler AG's Mercedes-Benz are banding together to acquire Nokia's mapping unit to prevent a technology giant such as Google Inc.(NasdaqGS:GOOG), Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL)or Facebook, Inc. (NasdaqGS:FB) from gaining control of a key part of the technology needed to run self-driving cars and in-car digital services. “Talks have reached an advanced stage and are likely to conclude within the next two weeks, “according to people familiar with the situation. “Specific details such as price and the distribution of specific stakes are still in flux, “these people said. The German car makers are aiming to acquire a controlling majority. Baidu and an undisclosed financial investor in the group would acquire minority stakes. Nokia would retain a minority stake. But people familiar with the situation said the company is negotiating to sell most of Here and is confident that the German-led consortium could easily finance and quickly close a deal and that the Germans will invest in the business. A second investor group made up of several undisclosed private-equityinvestors is looking to finance an acquisition of Here using debt, which one person said could make it difficult for Here to invest in its growth. Under the agreement with the German consortium, Baidu can use Here's technology only in China. Another person familiar with the car makers' plans said the consortium of German premium car makers approached German Chancellor Angela Merkel, asking her to encourage the Finnish government to back the German bid. It is unclear whether Merkel acted on the request. Another person familiar with those talks said the German car makers, a large customer of the Here service, threatened to stop using the service if it were sold to a company like Facebook or Uber Technologies, Inc. Here generated a loss of €32 million in 2014 and generated revenue of €970 million in 2014. Nokia and Baidu declined to comment. The German government declined to comment.
