Bayerische Motoren Werke Aktiengesellschaft Key Developments

Uber Reportedly Drops Bid For Nokia Map Unit

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.
