ronaldo-mouchawarAmazon have started negotiations for the acquisition of Souq.com, e-merchant based in Dubai, according to information reported by Bloomberg. Although Souq.com originally wanted to sell only 30% of its shares, the current talks with the American giant concern the repurchase of all of its capital for an amount close to one billion dollars. This operation, if it comes to fruition, would allow Jeff Bezos’ firm to gain a foothold in the Middle East.

Last September, Souq.com said it had mandated Goldman Sachs to find new investors. The company, which lists more than 1.5 million products on its site, addresses various markets in the Middle East (United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt). During its last fundraising, in February 2016, its CEO Ronaldo Mouchawar implied that the company could go public in the coming months.

This process is already used for the Apple Watch, which is charged by placing it on a magnetic pad.
