InvestorNewsBreaks – Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER) Announces $1.1B Agreement to Buy On-Demand Alcohol Company

Uber (NYSE: UBER) has announced that it has agreed to buy on-demand alcohol marketplace Drizly. The $1.1 billion-agreement is a combination of stock and cash, with Uber noting that it anticipated more than 90% of the payment to Drizly shareholders will be in the form of Uber stock. The announcement noted that the company expects the deal to close within the first half of 2021 and will result in Drizly becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of the technology company, which provides ridesharing, food- and package-delivery, freight-transportation and e-bike rental services. Uber stock rallied in premarket trading after the Drizly agreement was announced; the company’s stock has increased more than 50% over the past three months. “Wherever you want to go and whatever you need to get, our goal at Uber is to make people’s lives a little bit easier,” said Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi in the announcement. “That’s why we’ve been branching into new categories like groceries, prescriptions and, now, alcohol.”
