On July 2, 2019, Uber Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) consummated the transactions contemplated by the Class A preferred unit purchase agreement, as previously disclosed and entered into in April 2019 with affiliates of SoftBank Vision Fund (“SoftBank”), Toyota Motor Corporation (“Toyota”), and DENSO Corporation (“DENSO” and, together with SoftBank and Toyota, the “ATG Investors”), pursuant to which, among other things, (i) on June 30, 2019, the Company contributed certain of the Company’s subsidiaries and all assets and liabilities that are primarily related to the Company’s autonomous vehicle technologies (excluding liabilities arising from certain indemnification obligations related to the Levandowski arbitration and any remediation costs associated with certain obligations that may arise as a result of the Waymo settlement) to a newly formed corporate parent entity for the Company’s Advanced Technology Group (“ATG”), in exchange for common units of ATG representing an 86.2% stake in ATG on a fully diluted basis after giving effect to the investment by the ATG Investors, and (ii) on July 2, 2019, the ATG Investors collectively invested $1.0 billion ($400 million from Toyota, $333 million from SoftBank, and $267 million from DENSO) in ATG in exchange for preferred units of ATG representing a 13.8% stake in ATG on a fully diluted basis, representing an implied $7.25 billion valuation for ATG immediately following the closing of such investment.

Additionally, as previously disclosed, in connection with the investment, the Company entered into a joint collaboration agreement with Toyota, DENSO, and ATG with respect to next-generation self-driving hardware and the development of self-driving vehicles leveraging technology from each of the parties (the “ATG Collaboration Agreement”). Pursuant to the ATG Collaboration Agreement, ATG and Toyota will agree on development plans, and thereafter Toyota will contribute to ATG up to an aggregate of $300 million in cash over six semi-annual installments to fund the ongoing activities contemplated under the ATG Collaboration Agreement. The ATG Collaboration Agreement represents an expansion of the existing relationship between ATG and Toyota and adds DENSO to the overall effort.
