Libuda : Rakuten wesentlich besser als Rocket
Look Out Amazon, Here Comes...Rakuten?
Japanese e-commerce firm Rakuten announced on Tuesday it is acquiring Ebates for $1 billion.
The acquisition, which Rakuten hinted at last week, is part of the Japanese company’s push to grow its base beyond its domestic market and hopefully, become a global player. Having made some $1.2 billion acquisitions to date along these lines, this is Rakuten’s most ambitious move to date.
However, investors are dubious that the company can absorb yet another foreign acquisition, much less one the size of Ebates, despite Rakuten’s strong cash position.
Then there is the ever-present Amazon, which dominates the e-commerce market in the U.S. Few believe it will falter in the face of Chinese giant Alibaba, much less a Rakuten-Ebates combo.
Rakuten Goes Forth
Not surprisingly, Rakuten says it is undaunted. For starters, it has assembled a very interesting mix of acquisitions. There is messaging app Viber, which it purchased for $900 million in February, the Canadian ebook offering Kobo, Spanish video service Wuaki.tv, Viki, a digital content platform and Buy.com.
Now it has picked up Ebates.

LONDON - With the announcement it had acquired its Middle East rival Careem for $3.1 billion, US ride-hailing service Uber has executed the biggest tech deal in the region.
Uber will purchase Careem with $1.7 billion in convertible notes and $1.4 billion in cash. The transaction is expected to be finalised, after regulatory approvals, in the first quarter of 2020.
Libuda : Upstart and Rakuten
9th April 2019
The funding from Progressive Investment Company, Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan and First National Bank of Omaha brings Upstart’s total raised to $160 million to date. Upstart’s strategy is to partner with banks, offering its AI platform as a white-labelled lending application that banks can use to enhance their own lending programmes. The company has also announced new “Powered by Upstart” partnership agreements with First National Bank of Omaha, First Federal Bank of Kansas City and Accion Chicago.
Upstart has originated more than $3.3 billion of loans in the last five years, grew revenues by about 80% in 2018 and reached profitability in the second half of the year. The company says that 60% of its originations in 2019 have been entirely automated and approved in real time.
Now expecting to expand its AI platform to other forms of credit, the company recently partnered with Customers Bank’s BankMobile division to launch two new credit cards, the first to be powered by Upstart.
Last year, the company announced a $32 million round of funding led by Rakuten, the Japanese eCommerce company. That brought Upstart’s total amount raised to $85 million. At the time, the company said it would put the money toward future growth, as well as to help license the technology to banks, credit unions and retailers.

Libuda : Rakuten TV startet in vielen Ländern
von Fabian Riedner
Unter anderem wird das Unternehmen ab sofort in Skandinavien verfügbar sein. Neue Büros sollen in Polen und Schweden entstehen.
Der junge On-Demand-Streaming-Service Rakuten TV hat seine Verbreitung in Europa auf einen Schlag mehr als verdreifacht und startet in mehr als 30 neuen Ländern, wie der Unternehmensgründer und Geschäftsführer Jacinto Roca gegenüber „Variety“ sagte. Der VOD-Anbieter habe sich für den Start mit mehreren Smart-TV-Herstellern zusammengeschlossen und ist somit in vielen Ländern, einschließlich der skandinavischen Länder sowie große Teile von Mittel- und Osteuropa, über die Geräte empfangbar.
Rakuten TV wird nun in 40 Ländern in Europa angeboten, darunter auch das Gründungsland Spanien, Frankreich, Deutschland, Italien und Großbritannien. Roca sagte, dass man neue Büros einrichten werde, um die neuen Länder zu bedienen. Diese sollen vermutlich in Schweden und Polen entstehen. Der Launch in den neuen Ländern wurde laut Firmengründer mehr als ein Jahr lang vorbereitet.
Libuda : Rakuten: Japan's new #4 is going all cloud
The core, the RAN, the home gateway and just about everything else will be in the cloud when e-commerce powerhouse Rakuten turns on Japan's fourth wireless carrier this fall. CTO Tareq Amin played a crucial role at Reliance Jio, the greatest telecom disrupter of the century.
Everything cloud is a dream for most CTOs. AT&T was the first to say telcos had to learn from the web giants. It was a founder of Guru Parulkar's Open Network OS (ONOS) and Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter (CORD). Verizon and Telefonica are moving quickly to build a network close to what Rakuten has defined.
Amin tells Corinne Reichert, "This virtualised, cloud-based approach is going to save his company at least 35 percent in opex compared to traditional mobile carriers." That's a realistic goal; Lee Hicks at Verizon finding a 50% saving as he rebuilds much of the Verizon network.
Most CTOs have a similar plan but very few companies are willing to invest and take chances. Amin, starting fresh, can operate with a low-cost network that will be years ahead of most incumbents
Libuda : Lyft Stocks Really Did Move Higher Last Week
Motley Fool•May 20, 2019
If Uber Technologies (NYSE: UBER) and, perhaps even more significantly, Lyft (NASDAQ: LYFT) investors were rubbing their eyes over the weekend, it could be because both of the out-of-favor ridesharing stocks moved higher last week. Uber and Lyft shares rose 0.8% and 5.3%, respectively, for the week.
Things are far from perfect. This was Uber's first full week of trading, but the northerly nudge wasn't enough to get the stock back to the prior year's IPO price. Lyft is miles away from its debutante price, and the faster-growing yet smaller player saw its stock slide in five of its first six full weeks on the market before last week's pop. Lyft investors are getting a break, and Uber is clawing its way back to its original starting line, but it's going to take more than one positive week to turn momentum around.

Commenting on the announcement, Jacinto Roca – Founder & CEO, Rokuten TV said: “This is a major step that our company is undertaking within a plan of expansion which aims at making Rakuten TV the first choice of entertainment for smart TV owners.

The next two quarters will be focused on integrating the Philippines venture into the fold. It is Carousell’s seventh market alongside Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia and Australia. Carousell will also focus on priming Hong Kong and Singapore towards greater monetisation and profitability over the next two quarters. “Singapore and Hong Kong are near-term monetisation opportunities (for Carousell), and these markets alone will be the ones that can offer long-term viability for long term markets…We truly believe that they can be immensely profitable in the next 2 to 3 years. That will help us play in the rest of Southeast Asia.” Carousell will also roll out its car marketplace service in Hong Kong over the next two quarters – a service that is currently only available in its home market, Singapore. Quek did not disclose how much operational runway Carousell has with the new funding, but said that it is “well capitalised for the next few years”.
