(Bloomberg) -- Gojek is on track to raise $2 billion in its ongoing funding round before the end of the year, accelerating capital-raising to drive an expansion into mobile payments and food delivery.The ride-hailing giant has now handled about $1.5 billion of transactions outside of Indonesia, thanks to a budding expansion into the rest of Southeast Asia, President Andre Soelistyo told Haslinda Amin on Bloomberg Television. Backed by Google and Tencent Holdings Ltd., Gojek has rapidly grown an international business from scratch after setting up shop in countries like Singapore and Vietnam just nine months prior, he said.Gojek is trying to out-do Singapore-based Grab Holdings Inc. in the provision of a plethora of internet services that both companies hope to build into a coherent, all-purpose super-app. The Indonesian startup had raised about $1 billion from Tencent and others as of early 2019, but it remains on the hunt for capital. Amazon.com Inc. is said to be in talks to join the current round to bolster its presence in Southeast Asia, but Soelistyo declined to comment on potential backers. On Thursday, Grab co-founder Tan Hooi Ling said it will invest $150 million into artificial intelligence research, staffing and development over the next year to boost its own competing app and services.Read more: Grab Will Invest $150 Million in AI to Build Regional Super App“We can say now we’re not just an Indonesian company,” Soelistyo said in an interview at Bloomberg’s Sooner Than You Think conference in Singapore. Gojek is in “four countries and hopefully soon into six.”’Gojek debuted its app for hailing motorbike taxis in Jakarta in 2015. Since then, it’s evolved into a provider of ride-sharing services, food delivery and a digital wallet. It also offers a dozen other on-demand services such as house cleaning and medicine delivery.As part of the ongoing funding round, Gojek -- valued at $10 billion according to CB Insights -- had also secured investment from Visa Inc., Thailand’s Siam Commercial Bank Plc., Mitsubishi Motors Corp., Mitsubishi Corp. and Mitsubishi UFJ Lease & Finance Co. this year.

(Bloomberg) -- Amazon.com Inc. is in talks to make an investment in Indonesian ride-hailing giant Gojek, people familiar with the negotiations said, a move that could bolster the U.S. company’s presence in Southeast Asia.Amazon is one of the firms that have been negotiating with Gojek to join its ongoing funding round, according to the people, who asked not to be identified as the discussions are private. Under one scenario that has been considered, Amazon may make a meaningful investment for a slice of Indonesia’s most valuable startup, said one of the people. The talks may still fall apart or the terms may change.A Gojek representative declined to comment. Amazon couldn’t immediately be reached for comment outside of normal business hours. The Wall Street Journal earlier reported on the discussions.The move could mark Amazon’s most significant investment in Indonesia, one of the last frontiers of e-commerce. The Seattle-based retail giant took its first step into the region in 2017 when it entered Singapore with Amazon Prime Now. But in Indonesia, by far the region’s biggest and most promising market with 260 million people, it has no presence.By contrast, Chinese tech titans have made inroads into the region recently. Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. spent billions of dollars to acquire online shopping company Lazada Group and invested in homegrown Indonesian e-commerce companies Tokopedia PT and Bukalapak.

President Donald Trump on Friday blasted the European Union for its use of trade barriers and revived his threat to impose U.S. tariffs on European automobiles if he does not see progress in stalled negotiations between the longstanding partners. Trump made the comments shortly after signing a deal to sell more U.S. beef to Europe, an event at which he startled participants by joking that his administration was working "on a 25% tariff on all Mercedes-Benz and BMWs coming into our nation". "The EU has tremendous barriers to us," Trump told reporters later at the White House.
Swiss prosecutors said on Tuesday they are assisting Japanese authorities in their investigation into former Renault and Nissan Motor boss Carlos Ghosn, who faces charges of fraud and misconduct. Ghosn, who has denied wrongdoing and has been freed on $4.5 million bail, is pursuing claims against Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors, who ousted him as chairman of their alliance after raising allegations of embezzlement. "The request for legal assistance from Japan has been delegated to the Zurich public prosecutor's office for enforcement and is currently being processed," the office said, without giving any further detail on what it had been asked for.
Carlos Ghosn has launched a court case in the Netherlands against Japanese carmakers Nissan Motor and Mitsubishi Motors , who ousted him as chairman of their alliance last year on charges of embezzlement, Dutch newspaper NRC reported on Saturday. Ghosn is seeking 15 million euros ($16.8 million) in damages from the carmakers, as grave mistakes were made when he was sacked, NRC reported, citing his lawyer. "In the Netherlands, if you want to fire an executive you have to first tell him what he's being accused of, and you have to provide him with the evidence for the accusations.
(Bloomberg) -- Visa Inc. has become the latest investor in ride-hailing giant Go-Jek as the two companies push digital payments across Southeast Asia.The world’s biggest payments network has invested an undisclosed amount in Go-Jek as part of the Indonesian company’s ongoing series F fundraising round, the two companies said Wednesday. The move follows Go-Jek’s announcement this month it had secured funding from Thailand’s Siam Commercial Bank Plc, Mitsubishi Motors Corp., Mitsubishi Corp. and Mitsubishi UFJ Lease & Finance Co. The terms of that deal were also not disclosed.Go-Jek, which debuted its app for hailing motorbike taxis in Jakarta in 2015, is expanding beyond Indonesia to cater to consumers across Southeast Asia, building an all-purpose consumer app similar to Tencent Holdings Ltd.’s WeChat in China. It’s valued at $10 billion according to CB Insights, and hosts more than 20 on-demand services on its platform from food delivery to digital payments.The two companies have “a shared goal to bring formal financial services to the unbanked and underserved, including micro, small and medium businesses,” Visa Regional President Asia Pacific Chris Clark said in a statement. “We will explore ways to leverage the power of Go-Jek and Visa’s networks to expand financial access in Southeast Asia.”Visa and Mastercard Inc. have teamed up with mobile startups in Southeast Asia in recent years, where the vast majority of transactions are still cash-based and the pace of adoption of digital payments is slow. Mastercard has partnered with Go-Jek rival Grab, while Visa has announced a partnership with gaming accessories maker Razer Inc.To contact the reporter on this story: Yoolim Lee in Singapore at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Edwin Chan at firstname.lastname@example.org, Colum MurphyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- Ride-hailing giant Go-Jek has secured an investment from Siam Commercial Bank Pcl, the Thai lender that counts King Maha Vajiralongkorn as its biggest shareholder, according to people familiar with the matter.It’s unclear how much Thailand’s biggest bank is investing in Go-Jek, the people said, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private.

Mitsubishi Motors Corp. shareholders approved on Friday the ouster of Carlos Ghosn, who was pivotal in the Japanese automaker’s three-way partnership with Nissan and Renault until he was arrested on financial misconduct charges last year.
(Bloomberg) -- Waymo LLC agreed to explore driverless services with Renault SA, Nissan Motor Co. and Mitsubishi Motors Corp., pairing a leader in self-driving technology with the world’s largest automotive alliance.The three carmakers and Alphabet Inc.’s autonomous-vehicle unit will study market opportunities and research legal and safety issues related to driverless transportation services in France and Japan, the companies said in a statement Thursday. The deal doesn’t extend to cooperation producing robo-vehicles.“We’re convinced that with this added expertise, we’ll be able to position ourselves for autonomous services that are viable for customers,” Hadi Zablit, senior vice president for business development at the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, told reporters in Paris. When it comes to implementation, the three automakers won’t necessarily offer services in common with Waymo, he said.The French-Japanese alliance produced more than 10 million vehicles last year — on a par with the biggest carmakers: Volkswagen AG and Toyota Motor Corp. Unlike Waymo’s previously announced deals with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV and Tata Motors Ltd.’s Jaguar Land Rover, the partnership with Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi doesn’t include supplying any cars.Waymo’s parent company, Alphabet, struck a separate deal with the three-way partnership last September, giving its Google Android operating system access to their vehicle dashboards starting in 2021.The new agreement marks a first step toward developing long-term, profitable driverless-vehicle services for passengers and deliveries, the companies said. While the analysis will take place first in France and Japan, they said it may expand to other markets — excluding China — in the future.Zablit sees deployment of the new mobility services in less than 10 years.For Renault and Nissan, working with Waymo brings expertise as the race to develop autonomous vehicles heats up. It also shows the French and Japanese manufacturers continue to collaborate on key strategic matters, even after their two-decade partnership was shaken by the arrest in November of former leader Carlos Ghosn in Japan over alleged financial improprieties.Tensions escalated after Renault pursued a combination with Fiat without initially telling its Japanese partners. Those merger talks have since ended.To contact the reporter on this story: Ania Nussbaum in Paris at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Anthony Palazzo at firstname.lastname@example.org, Frank Connelly, Chester DawsonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Italy's Industry Minister Luigi Di Maio blamed the French state for derailing merger talks between Fiat Chrysler and rival Renault saying Paris had come out poorly in the situation. It was a market operation that could have helped Italy and Italians," Di Maio, who is also deputy prime minister, told Radio 24. "I believe France cut a poor figure over a deal which was a market operation for which we showed respect.
France's finance minister said on Thursday following the collapse of merger talks between Fiat Chrysler (FCA) and Renault that the government had engaged constructively but failed to win the support of Renault's Japanese partner, Nissan. What remained to be obtained was the explicit support of Nissan," Bruno Le Maire said.
PARIS, June 6 (Reuters) - French budget minister Gerald Darmanin said he hoped the door had "not closed" on the possibility of a merger between Fiat Chrysler (FCA) and Renault and added France would be happy to re-examine any new proposal from Fiat. "Talks could resume at some time in the future," Darmanin told FranceInfo radio on Thursday. Earlier on Thursday, Fiat Chrysler said it had abandoned its $35 billion merger offer for Renault, blaming French politics for scuttling what would have been a landmark deal to create the world's third-biggest automaker.

Fiat Chrysler said it has abandoned its $35 billion merger offer for Renault , blaming French politics for scuttling what would have been a landmark deal to create the world's third-biggest automaker. A source close to the French carmaker's board said Fiat Chrysler made the move after France sought to delay a decision on the deal in order to win the support of Nissan Motor Co , Renault's Japanese alliance partner. French government officials had pushed for Nissan to support the merger.
PARIS/MILAN, June 5 (Reuters) - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV has reached a tentative agreement with France on the terms of its proposed merger with Renault, two sources told Reuters, as the French carmaker's board met to consider the bid late on Wednesday. The French state, which owns 15% of Renault, had been seeking more influence over the merged company, firmer job guarantees and improved terms for Renault shareholders in return for blessing the $35 billion tie-up. Renault, FCA and the French government all declined to comment on the ongoing board discussions.
Renault's board has adjourned a meeting to examine the merger proposal pitched last week by Fiat Chrysler until Wednesday afternoon, the French carmaker said. "The board of directors has decided to continue to study with interest the opportunity of such a combination and to extend the discussions on this subject," Renault's board said in a statement at the end of a three-hour meeting on Tuesday.
FRANKFURT/PARIS, June 4 (Reuters) - Fiat Chrysler has resolved key differences with France over its proposed merger with Renault, three sources told Reuters, as talks on the $35 billion tie-up plan progressed towards a possible agreement on Wednesday. An emerging compromise over French influence on a combined FCA-Renault could clear the way for Renault's board to approve a framework deal and begin the long process of a full merger. FCA, Renault and its 15% shareholder, the French state, have been locked in talks over the Italian-American manufacturer's bid to create the world's third-biggest carmaker.
FRANKFURT/PARIS, June 4 (Reuters) - Renault directors were preparing to review Fiat Chrysler's (FCA) $35 billion merger offer on Tuesday, after the Italian-American carmaker resolved differences with the French government overnight, three sources said. The compromise on French government influence over a combined FCA-Renault may clear the way for Renault's board to approve a framework agreement beginning the long process of a full merger, unless new issues surface at the meeting. France, Renault's biggest shareholder with a 15% stake, had been pressing for its own guaranteed seat on the new board and an effective veto on CEO appointments.
BEIJING/TOKYO, May 30 (Reuters) - Nissan's advanced technologies including platforms and electric powertrains could give it leverage in a merger involving Renault and Fiat Chrysler, thanks to a royalty system it has with the former, two people with knowledge of the matter said. A merged Renault-Fiat Chrysler could face an extra hurdle each time it uses technology developed by Nissan Motor Co or Mitsubishi Motors Corp, while the two Japanese automakers stand to gain a client in Fiat Chrysler (FCA) , one of the people said. Nissan's technology, particularly in electrification and emissions reduction, could give it some sway in the $35 billion potential tie-up between Renault and FCA, even as its stake in the newly formed company would be diluted.

Nissan sees no major downside to partnering with a combined Renault and Fiat Chrysler (FCA), it said on Wednesday in a lukewarm endorsement of the proposed $35 billion (27.73 billion pounds) tie-up, which would complicate an already uneasy alliance. The leaders of Nissan Motor Co, France's Renault SA and junior partner Mitsubishi Motors Corp gathered at Nissan's headquarters in Yokohama for a scheduled alliance meeting which was overshadowed by FCA's proposal this week for a merger-of-equals with Renault. Renault Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard arrived in Japan on Tuesday to discuss with Nissan the FCA-led proposal to create the world's third-largest automaker.
Hiroto Saikawa also said that the issue of whether the two companies should merge should be left to them. "This is an issue for the two companies to decide," Saikawa told reporters following a meeting of Nissan, Renault and junior partner Mitsubishi Motors Corp earlier in the day.
The Japanese partners of Renault SA have not been left in the dark by the automaker over its merger talks with Fiat Chrysler, the chairman of Mitsubishi Motors Corp said on Wednesday. "If the intention was to leave us out, they wouldn't have come all this way to explain their position, would they?" Osamu Masuko told reporters, following a meeting of top executives from Renault, Nissan Motor Co and Mitsubishi. Masuko said he was directly informed by Renault of its plans to merge with Fiat Chrysler for the first time earlier on Wednesday.
