Uber has agreed to acquire Postmates. This deal is a reflection of Uber's continued interest and commitment to the food delivery industry. We believe we're still in the early days of online food delivery and that the category will evolve so we can deliver better services to consumers, delivery people, and merchants.
The deal is subject to regulatory review, and it has not been closed yet. Until then, it's business as usual for all of us. Both companies continue to operate--and compete--separately and independently. Our users will not see any changes during this time.
