SoftBank Founder Amazon Stake That Would be worth $260 billion Today
SoftBank founder Masayoshi Son missed out on a big Amazon stake that would be worth about $260 billion today.
Here’s the story: Son had the chance to own a big stake in Amazon.com Inc. but there was a problem.
He was close to striking a deal to acquire 30% of the e-commerce pioneer with Jeff Bezos in its early years. Son offered $100 million but Bezos insisted on $130 million.
“The problem, Son just didn’t have enough cash” he told Blomberg Business
