"Two Japanese institutions will become one in September; new holding company to rank only behind Sammy Sega in size." -- Is Bandai a toy company more than a gaming company? Weird combo then, no? #$tag_more #acquisitions #need_to_grok #video_games #tech_companies #billion_dollar_deals #mergers #pub

Time Warner, which was a result of 1989 merger of Time and Warner, bought remaining 82% of Turner for $7.5B in stocks. So Turner was worth like $9B. Boss. #acquisitions #media_companies #billion_dollar_deals #year:1993 #pub

So Time Inc seems like it really only had HBO going for it. Besides that, what an awful deal for Warner Bros since they also still had the record company. Not sure where the Cable company came from, but it likely stems from Warner's side and little to do with Time's side. #billion_dollar_deals #Time_Warner #mergers #year:1980s #pub
Doesn't mention HBO was owned by TIme. #retrospective #Time_Warner #billion_dollar_deals #journalism #toread #pub

What a loss for them lol. Probably worth half as much now or soon. They won with Flipkart acqusition, but had to sell off their shares. And now are just left with Snapdeal, not merged. Laying around. #softbank #ecommerce #india #Snapdeal #year:2014 #funding #billion_dollar_deals #unicorns #pub
That $4. 5% of company stake is now worth $7.5B. Another win. 2017-03. Nvidia was worth $80B at the time. Beast! #tech_companies #softbank #nvidia #billion_dollar_deals #boss #vision_fund #investments #year:2017 #pub

"Japan’s SoftBank plans to invest $2.25 billion into GM’s self-driving car unit Cruise to help bring fleets of autonomous vehicles to market faster. Softbank’s investment, made from its Vision Fund, will give the company (SFTBY, -0.76%) a 19.6% stake in Cruise, which has been operating as a separate unit from GM. GM (GM, -0.38%) said Thursday it will also invest $1.1 billion into GM’s Cruise upon closing of the transaction." -- "The Softbank investment in Cruise will be made in two parts. The first tranche of $900 million will be made at the closing of the transaction. Once Cruise’s autonomous vehicles are ready for commercial deployment, Softbank will complete the second investment of $1.35 billion. Softbank and GM Cruise have agreed to a 7-year term before either party can seek liquidity outside of the partnership." #self_driving #billion_dollar_deals #startups #YC_funded #cruise_automation #investments #pub
Honda's investment puts Cruise's value at $14.6 billion — $3.1 billion more than when SoftBank Vision Fund announced plans to invest $2.25 billion in the operations in May. Honda's investment appears to be qualitatively different from SoftBank's, as it's expected to be more hands-on and expands the Japanese automaker's ties with GM. #self_driving #billion_dollar_deals #startups #YC_funded #cruise_automation #investments #pub
