Uber to Sell US Auto-Leasing Business

Uber Technologies Inc. has agreed to sell its US auto-leasing business to startup car marketplace Fair.com, people familiar with the matter said, bringing to an end the ride-hailing giant’s failed attempt to attract new drivers who lack regular access to vehicles. Uber has been seeking a buyer for Xchange Leasing, as the unit is known, since this summer, when it decided to wind down the business after learning it was losing roughly $9,000 a car, 18 times more than previously believed. In September, the company said it would begin to shutter Xchange Leasing, affecting about 500 jobs, while also launching a sale process, Market Watch reported. It could not be learned what price Fair agreed to pay for the division. A Xchange Leasing document compiled for prospective buyers and reviewed by The Wall Street Journal said the net book value of its more than 30,000 vehicles was roughly $400 million.
