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.
Libuda : Carousell believes the car market will keep
02 October 2019
Carousell, an online classifieds marketplace company, is focusing on the auto portion of their market to help increase the company's growth throughout this year.
The company's General Manager for the Philippines, Raffy Montemayor, recently stated that the auto market is one of the key areas that is helping drive growth for the entire platform.
“I am confident that our automobiles business unit will lead in the online classified space,” he said.
He also stated that both overall listings for cars and views of those listings have continued to grow ever since OLX Philippines consumers have transitioned onto the Carousell marketplace.
Karl Magsuci, the Head of Cars for Carousell Philippines, also recently stated that overall car listing views have increased from 106,000 to around 312,000 and listings themselves went from 6,000 to 13,000 after the transition from OLX.
Auto parts and accessories saw views go from 71,000 to 121,000 and listings went from 1,600 to 5,300 since the transition.
Views for listings of motorcycles moved from 44,000 to 102,000 and actual listings grew from 1,200 to 4,000.
Magsuci said that the company believes that both views and listings will keep increasing as the year moves on. He also said that growth is expected to actually increase by next year as the platform continues to upgrade itself to make it easier for consumers to use.
Earlier this summer Carousell and OLX began conducting operations together as Carousell.ph with a focus on becoming the Philippines' top digital retail site.
The two companies merged after Carousell received an investment from OLX Group's owner Naspers which led to the platform acquiring OLX Philippines.

Libuda : Für einen Laien schwer zu beurteilen
By Keith Dyer 16 October 2019
Nokia's role in Rakuten's Open RAN won't move to second phase antenna unit.
As Rakuten moves to a wider deployment beyond its launch phase, CTO Tareq Amin wants a sleeker product – one that is easier to deploy and costs less. So he is specifying an integrated radio-antenna unit, within one enclosure. That won’t be from Nokia, he told TMN. Instead he is working directly with hardware provider Flex and also with KMW – with both companies going ahead with a design.
Rakuten announced the Phase Two antenna units in September, and TMN asked Nokia then if it was involved. It never managed to produce an answer, and this is probably why.
For 5G, the operator has chosen a 3.5GHz antenna-radio unit from NEC and will deploy mmWave small cells from Airspan that are based on the Qualcomm’s FSM 100xx SoC design. In fact here may be rather a lot of those going down, with Amin telling a conference today in Barcelona that street poles are easy to get onto in Japan, and that the country might well have the largest mmWave deployment in the world in 2020.

Libuda : An important agreement
South Korea’s SK Telecom Co. will provide its fifth-generation network solutions to Japanese e-commerce conglomerate Rakuten, becoming the first Korean mobile carrier to sell its 5G technology overseas.
Under the agreement, SK Telecom will share with Rakuten its 5G network designs, optimized communication quality solutions and 5G antenna and radio frequency transmission technologies, according to industry sources on Thursday.
Rakuten is Japan’s largest e-commerce operator with annual revenue of more than 1 trillion yen ($9.29 billion). It obtained the license to become Japan’s fourth mobile carrier last year. Through the launch of a new subsidiary, Rakuten Mobile, it plans to release long-term evolution mobile network offerings and roll out 5G services in June 2020.
As a novice in the market, Rakuten Mobile appears to have reached out to Korea’s top mobile carrier for assistance in the entire 5G rollout from network design to installation.
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Rakuten Mobile reportedly plans to spend 194.6 billion yen in 5G infrastructure.

Ob die je profitabel arbeiten werden kann keiner sagen, insofern ist die aktuelle Bewertung ein schlechter Witz und einmal mehr Beleg dafür das Privatanleger bei solchen IPOs die Hände von lassen sollten. Institutionelle Geldgeber verbrennen massig Gelder und werden noch eine Weile im gegenseitigen Hin- und Her brauchen bis man hier mal abschätzen kann,wohin die hochspekulative Reise geht.
Libuda : I believe, we see will a compromise
California Governor Gavin Newsom has indicated he is open to negotiating with large companies like Uber and Lyft before the law goes into effect on January 1. Uber had suggested establishing a minimum wage for its drivers of $21 an hour as an alternative to the bill's more radical changes, or challenging the law via 2020 ballot initiative. Uber claims that the law does not apply to its drivers and has made clear its intention to defend the position in court.

Nach unserer Auffassung sind „branchenübergreifende Ökosysteme“ der alles überspannende Trend für die nächsten Jahre – ein Megatrend, wenn sie so wollen. Sie werden der Haupttreiber für die dritte InsurTech-Welle sein. Immer mehr Versicherungsunternehmen erkennen, dass der effektivste Weg zur Kundengewinnung und -bindung die Beteiligung an relevanten Plattformen und Ökosystemen ist. Oftmals lassen sie sich dabei von den Vorreitern in Asien inspirieren, zum Beispiel Rakuten und Ping An.
Libuda : Medical Transportation Through Lyft
Millions of Medicaid Patients Now Have Access to Medical Transportation Through Lyft
At Lyft, we’re constantly working to ensure access to transportation doesn’t stand in the way of people getting the healthcare they need. That’s why we are proud to announce our approval to become an enrolled Medicaid provider in Arizona, following new state regulations for non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) - which makes Lyft the first national ridesharing company to bring its transportation solution to millions of Medicaid beneficiaries. We are also actively enrolling and exploring opportunities in other states. For patients, this means Lyft will now be a covered transportation option to get eligible patients to and from medical appointments.
Why Medicaid Programs Are Looking to Lyft
In fact, based on the findings of an American Journal of Public Health study published in March 2019, modernizing NEMT via rideshare could generate cost-savings of $537 million a year when scaled nationally.

Libuda : Lyft eyes profitability by the end of 2021
Lyft CEO Logan Green claimed, “We’ve never laid out our path to profitability, and we know that’s a question on a lot of investors’ minds. We’re going to be profitable on an adjusted Ebidta basis a year before analysts expect us to. We’re going to hit this target in Q4 2021.”
Lyft went public at $72 per share, and it touched a record high of $88.6. The stock is currently trading 50% below its 52-week high at $44.2. Lyft has missed earnings estimates over the last two quarters.
Analysts remain optimistic about Lyft stock, though. They have an average target price of $70.5, which is 60% above the current trading price.
