Uber to retain Careem brand for now

The $3.1bn dollar acquisition makes Careem a wholly owned subsidiary of Uber

Uber and Middle East ride-hailing business Careem will remain separate entities until at least the first quarter of 2020, when Uber’s acquisition is expected to close, Careem’s CFO said on Tuesday.

The $3.1bn dollar acquisition will make Careem a wholly owned subsidiary of Uber, but the Careem brand and app will remain intact, at least initially.

Maintaining two separate brands in the same market is better for competition, Ankur Shah said at a financial conference in Dubai.
