The new combined company will be headed by former CEO of Yandex.Taxi Tigran khudaverdyan, and the Board of Directors will include 4 members from the company «Yandex» and 3 people from Uber. Moreover, the merger of the domestic search giant invested 100 million U.S. dollars, while Uber — 225 million. The cost of the new company is estimated at $ 3.8 billion, and the shares were distributed as follows: 59.3% of newly formed company owned by «Yandex», and Uber got 36.9 per cent.
