[Reuters] Reuters exclusively reports U.S. examining Alibaba’s cloud unit for national security risks; market reacts UGN Security 01/18/22 04:42 PM

Reuters exclusively reported that the Biden administration is reviewing its cloud business to determine whether it poses a risk to U.S. national security. The focus of the probe is on how the company stores U.S. clients’ data – including personal information and intellectual property – and whether the Chinese government could gain access to it. If regulators ultimately decide to block transactions between American firms and Alibaba Cloud, it will damage the bottom line of one of the company’s most promising businesses and deal a blow to reputation of the company as a whole.

[Reuters] Reuters reveals Facebook to win conditional EU nod for Kustomer buy UGN Security 12/16/21 06:16 PM

Reuters exclusively reported that Facebook is set to gain EU antitrust approval for its acquisition of Kustomer - an acquisition that media have reported would be worth more than $1 billion. The approval comes after Facebook offered remedies that allow rival products to function with those of the U.S. customer service startup.





A buying spree of startups by big companies has triggered concerns on both sides of the Atlantic, with regulators worried about so-called killer acquisitions aimed at shutting down potential rivals before they are big enough to be a threat.

[Reuters] Reuters reveals Trump’s social media venture seeks to raise $1 billion; market reacts UGN Security 12/02/21 04:35 PM

Shares of Digital World Acquisition Corp rose as much as 22% after Reuters exclusively reported that the blank-check acquisition firm and former U.S. President Donald Trump’s social media venture were seeking to raise $1 billion for their deal. Trump Media & Technology Group, which has yet to roll out the social media app it says it is developing, already stands to receive $293 million if its deal to list in New York through a merger with blank-check firm Digital World Acquisition Corp is completed. The deal valued Trump Media at $875 million, including debt, and Trump Media is now seeking to raise up to an additional $1 billion at a valuation of close to $3 billion. It is the clearest indication yet that Trump and the Digital World dealmakers are seeking to capitalize on the market euphoria around their venture.

[Reuters] Reuters exclusively reports Amazon seeking to settle EU antitrust investigations; market reacts UGN Security 11/09/21 02:26 PM

On Tuesday, Reuters exclusively reported that Amazon is seeking to settle two EU antitrust investigations to stave off potential hefty fines and orders to change its business practices, people familiar with the matter said. Last November, The European Commission charged the world’s biggest online retailer with using its size, power and data to push its own products and gain an unfair advantage over rival merchants that sell on its online platform. It also opened an investigation into Amazon’s possible preferential treatment of its own retail offers and those of marketplace sellers that use its logistics and delivery services.

[Reuters] Reuters first to report Apple’s talks with Chinese battery makers CATL and BYD mostly stalled UGN Security 10/22/21 01:58 PM

Reuters was first to report that Apple Inc’s talks with China’s CATL and BYD over battery supplies for its planned electric vehicle have mostly stalled after they refused to set up teams and build U.S. plants that would solely cater to the tech giant. Chinese battery makers are more advanced than rivals in the development of lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries, which are cheaper to produce, and sources have previously said Apple favors this battery technology. The firms informed Apple sometime in the past two months that they were not able to meet its requirements but the U.S. company has not given up hope of resuming talks with either of them.

Reuters exclusively reported that Rome is drawing up an offer to try to convince Intel to invest billions of euros in an advanced chipmaking plant in Italy, as Germany emerges as frontrunner to land an even bigger megafactory planned by the U.S. company.

From Brazil’s online lender Nubank to Colombian delivery firm Rappi, Latin American tech startups raised $14.8 billion in new money during the first nine months of 2021, a jump of 174% since last year. Reuters provided a deep dive into how this boom has caught the eye of some of the biggest names in private equity and venture capital, such as SoftBank Group Corp, General Atlantic and Sequoia Capital. Now Wall Street’s banks are looking to tap into the gold rush by taking more Latino “unicorns” public in the United States.

[Reuters] Reuters impact: U.S. lawmakers say Amazon may have lied to Congress, Senator Warren urges breakup, India retailers want probe after Reuters investigation UGN Security 10/18/21 11:00 AM

Following a Reuters Special Report published last week, five members of the U.S. House Judiciary committee wrote to Amazon.com Inc’s chief executive and accused the company’s top executives, including founder Jeff Bezos, of either misleading Congress or possibly lying to it about Amazon’s business practices. The letter also states that the committee is considering “whether a referral of this matter to the Department of Justice for criminal investigation is appropriate.”





The Reuters investigation showed that the company had conducted a systematic campaign of copying products and rigging search results in India to boost sales of its own brands - practices Amazon has denied engaging in. 





Last week, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren called for breaking up Amazon.com Inc and Indian retailers demanded a government probe of the company after the Reuters report was published.

[Reuters] U.S. Senator Warren urges Amazon breakup, India retailers want probe after Reuters report UGN Security 10/14/21 04:43 PM

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren called for breaking up Amazon.com Inc and Indian retailers demanded a government probe of the company after a Reuters investigation showed the e-commerce giant had copied products and rigged search results in India.





The Reuters report, reviewing thousands of internal Amazon documents, found that the U.S. company ran a systematic campaign of creating knockoffs and manipulating search results to boost its own private brands in India, one of the company’s largest growth markets. It also showed that, at least in India, manipulating search results to favor Amazon’s products, as well as copying other sellers’ goods, were part of a formal strategy at Amazon - and that at least two senior executives had reviewed it.

[Reuters] Reuters exclusively reports wide-ranging SolarWinds probe sparks fear in Corporate America UGN Security 09/10/21 01:21 PM

Reuters reported exclusively that a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission investigation into the SolarWinds Russian hacking operation has dozens of corporate executives fearful that information unearthed in the expanding probe will expose them to liability. People familiar with the inquiry say the requests may reveal numerous unreported cyber incidents unrelated to the Russian espionage campaign, giving the SEC a rare level of insight into previously unknown incidents that the companies likely never intended to disclose.

[Reuters] Reuters reveals Amazon considers more proactive approach to determining what belongs on its cloud service UGN Security 09/05/21 06:02 PM

Reuters revealed that Amazon.com Inc plans to take a more proactive approach to determine what types of content violate its cloud service policies, such as rules against promoting violence, and enforce its removal. According to a Reuters source, over the coming months, Amazon will expand the Trust & Safety team at the Amazon Web Services (AWS) division and hire a small group of people to develop expertise and work with outside researchers to monitor for future threats - a move that could turn Amazon into one of the world’s most powerful arbiters of content allowed on the internet and is likely to renew debate about how much power tech companies should have to restrict free speech.

[Reuters] Reuters exclusively reports Ericsson CEO to double down on China as 5G tussle rumbles on UGN Security 09/03/21 06:00 PM

In an interview with Reuters, Ericsson’s top executive Borje Ekholm vowed to double down on efforts to regain market share lost in China after Sweden blocked Chinese suppliers from its 5G roll-out, a move that antagonized Beijing and has hit the equipment maker’s business. China accounted for about 10% of Ericsson’s revenue last year, but that fell sharply after the company’s home country of Sweden banned Huawei from its 5G networks, citing security risks – a charge that Huawei has strongly denied.

[Reuters] Reuters first to report Tokyo ready to back Western Digital-Kioxia deal if key tech stays in Japan UGN Security 09/03/21 05:57 PM

Reuters was first to report that Japan’s trade ministry is ready to back Western Digital’s bid to merge with memory chipmaker Kioxia provided that control of cutting-edge technology stays in Japan. The tie-up could give Japan greater leverage in geopolitical rivalries increasingly dominated by technology, including over shortages of chips. It could also help Japan forge deeper semiconductor industry ties with its U.S. ally, a commitment that President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Suga made in April.

[Reuters] Reuters reveals Apple hit with antitrust case in India over in-app payments issues UGN Security 09/02/21 02:16 PM

Reuters broke the news that Apple Inc is facing an antitrust challenge in India for allegedly abusing its dominant position in the apps market by forcing developers to use its proprietary in-app purchase system. The allegations in India, filed by a little-known, non-profit group, are similar to a case Apple faces in the European Union, where regulators last year started an investigation into Apple’s imposition of an in-app fee of 30% for distribution of paid digital content and other restrictions.
