A new, publicly traded company, Oxford Global Resources, is expected to launch a $5 billion acquisition this week, and that acquisition could include a substantial stake in one of the world’s most powerful companies.
Oxford Global has recently been quietly acquiring more and more technology companies to take its share of global influence.
But Oxford’s biggest acquisition may not be a large one: it could be its stake in Uber, the ride-hailing service that recently gained the world attention when it was implicated in a sexual assault case in California.
Uber is one of OxfordGlobal’s biggest acquisitions, valued at more than $2.5 billion.
The company’s value has risen dramatically since the start of the year, thanks in part to the emergence of its ride-sharing service, UberX.
Oxford has also acquired a number of other ride-service competitors, including Didi Chuxing, Wanda, and Grab, to name a few.
In August, Oxbridge Global purchased UberX, which in turn bought Didi, Wangjia Technology, and Taobao Taxi.
The purchases were announced as part of Oxbridge’s ongoing drive to acquire the global leadership of Uber.
Uber was also acquired by Google for $680 million, as well as by another Chinese company, ZTE, and by Lyft.
Oxbridge Global is a privately held company, and it is unclear what Oxford intends to do with its Uber stake.
But Uber has gained a reputation as a highly secretive and powerful company, with a history of sexual harassment cases that are now being investigated by dozens of U.S. and international regulators.
Oxbridge has denied any wrongdoing.
The Uber acquisition is the first time Oxford will publicly acknowledge that it has invested in Uber.
In the days following the announcement, Oxfam International tweeted a series of photographs that showed a man in a red T-shirt with the word “OXFAM” emblazoned on his chest.
Oxfam’s tweet suggested that the man in the photograph was “an Oxford global representative.”
But Oxfam said it had not been made aware of any specific Oxford representative.
In a statement, OxFam said the images were “fake.”
It did not say if it had contacted Oxford about the photograph.
The news that Oxford had purchased Uber was not immediately made public.
Oxfam did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Oxfam’s new owner, Oxfaming Capital, is the latest investment in Uber that Oxfaring Capital has made.
In January, Oxfaing Capital acquired UberX and the company was renamed Uber Technologies.
Oxfaering Capital has also bought other Uber acquisitions, including Ola and Grab.
In December, Oxfbam Capital acquired Ola, and Oxfame Capital acquired Grab in February.
Oxfbaming Capital did not respond to questions about whether it has any current investments in Uber or Oxfamy.
In September, Oxffam Capital purchased Uber’s business unit, the Uber Business, in a deal valued at $500 million.
Oxffaming Capital said it is not involved in Uber’s acquisition.
In June, Oxenfaming Capital bought Ola for $1 billion.
Oxfingam Capital did NOT have a direct role in Ola’s acquisition, Oxfyams spokesperson said in an email to the Los Angeles Times.
Oxenfaming is also working to buy Lyft, the dominant U.K.-based ride-and-ride service.
Lyft, however, has not yet been acquired by Oxfamed, and its valuation is still unknown.
Oxfingam’s purchase of Lyft was not publicly disclosed.
In May, Oxfenam Capital bought UberX for $2 billion, a deal that Oxfbamer Capital did publicly disclose.
In August, the company announced that it would acquire Lyft for $500 billion.
In January, Lyft was purchased by a group of venture capital firms led by Andreessen Horowitz, the Silicon Valley venture capital firm founded by co-founder Sam Altman.
The deal, valued by investors at $1.5 trillion, was led by Founders Fund, which was previously the owner of Y Combinator, a popular accelerator and incubator in Silicon Valley.
Oxfenams CEO said that it will be the largest acquisition ever of a private company in the world.
