Lyft is not happy with Travis Kalanick and Uber. Last week, Lyft found itself the subject of several stories claiming the company was involved in active but unsuccessful acquisition talks with a number of firms. Naturally, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick seized the opportunity to zing his competition.
Kalanick told Uber investors that his company wouldn’t pay more than $2 billion for Lyft, his largest competitor. However, even so, Bloomberg reported, Kalanick said he wouldn’t pursue an acquisition because of the antitrust investigation that would likely ensue.
