Jul 15 15
Uber Technologies, Inc. is reportedly out of the running to acquire HERE Holding Corporation (Here). Uber Technologies, Inc. had submitted an offer for the mapping division this year for as much as $3 billion. Instead, three people with knowledge of the talks said negotiations for Here have focused on a potential deal between Nokia Corporation (HLSE:NOK1V) (Nokia) and a consortium of German automakers, Bayerische Motoren Werke Aktiengesellschaft (DB:BMW), AUDI AG (DB:NSU) and Daimler AG (XTRA:DAI). The people would speak only on the condition of anonymity because the discussions were private. As other potential suitors have dropped out of the bidding process, the three German carmakers have increasingly taken a tough negotiating position with Nokia, according to two of the people. Spokesmen for Nokia and Uber declined to comment. Representatives for the German automakers were not immediately available for comment.

Burlington and Uber Reach Operating Deal
Jul 10 15
The city of Burlington and the Uber ride-hailing service have signed an agreement to allow Uber to temporarily operate in the city and at the airport. Under the interim agreement, Uber will have a zero-tolerance policy on drug and alcohol use for all drivers and will not allow anyone convicted of driving under the influence or some other crimes in the past 10 years to drive for it. Uber, which connects riders to drivers through its cellphone apps, is required to do national and state criminal and background checks for all drivers, including sex offender registry checks under the interim deal. The move comes after an Uber driver was charged with sexually assaulting an incapacitated woman in February. Mayor Miro Weinberger's administration plans to work with a city council committee to adopt permanent revisions to the city's vehicles-for-hire ordinance. The city and Raiser LLC, the company doing business as Uber, agreed that Uber will post the city's taxi administration contact information in all vehicles so if passengers have complaints they can register them with the city. Uber also will have an ongoing customer feedback and complaint system that the city may access if it needs more information to investigate a complaint.
