The terms of the agreement indicate that Uber will provide $ 1.4 billion in cash for Careem and $ 1.7 billion in bonds. The deal is currently subject to regulatory approvals, but Uber expects to close the deal by the first quarter of next year.

Through this acquisition, Uber will acquire all of Careem's transportation, delivery and payment activities throughout the Middle East, including other key markets such as Pakistan, Egypt and Jordan.

Once the transaction is closed, Careem will continue to operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Uber, but will operate independently. Co-founder of Careem and Managing Director of the company, Mr. Mudassir Sheikha will remain in the company's leadership seat.
