I hoped that the WeWork debacle would cool down Mr. Son’s ambitions for Vision Fund 2. It looks like I was wrong. My concern now is that any shortfall of outside capital for the fund will be filled by Softbank. $SFTBY

Ping An’s bank-software vendor OneConnect slashed its IPO valuation to half the $7.5 bln imputed when Masayoshi Son’s Vision Fund backed it last year. Dozens of startups from Didi to Oyo may soon be feeling deflated, too, says @AlecMac11 :

During our ownership of Softbank, despite its appreciation, the stock traded at a discount to its net assets. Even when we sold it, it was still trading at a significant discount to fair value, even if Vision Fund 1 was worth 0. $SFTBY

SoftBank's Vision Fund has had several big whiffs. Wag is the latest problem investment but it's far from the worst. Uber, Slack and WeWork have hurt Masayoshi Son and SoftBank too. I'l discuss all that with @richardquest  on @cnni  around 12:17 ET.

SoftBank’s Vision Fund has agreed to sell its nearly 50% stake in Wag back to the struggling dog-walking startup, according to people familiar with the matter, another disappointment for the Japanese giant. @CaraRLombardo  scoop:

#SoftBank reported its first quarterly loss in 14 years after taking a $8.9 billion hit at its giant Vision Fund and marking a rare, humbling moment for CEO Masayoshi Son over his backing of troubled startup #WeWork 

SoftBank's $100 billion Vision Fund only got that big by borrowing money from two Middle Eastern nations at a 7% rate. The interest payments amount to $2 billion this year alone.

re: this morning’s disappointing SoftBank IPO, relax. Remember that it could always be worse. You could be in the Vision Fund'>SoftBank Vision Fund paying 4 and 40 as they t-shirt cannon your money at WeWork and blockchain enabled dog-walking startups at the end of a 10 year economic cycle.

Where to even begin with this story - Softbank is now underwater on its $UBER investment in Vision Fund I, with WeWork about to hit the market like an $47 billion asteroid. Now they're lending employees money at 5% interest to invest in Vision Fund II

At the grand rally in Bhubaneswar, talked about BJP’s vision for Odisha in agriculture, water resources and infrastructure. BJD is patronising chit fund scamsters, commission seekers, bullies and poor administrators. Such a party has no right to govern Odisha

SoftBank's bid to raise Vision Fund II has met with a chilly reception from some big institutions, including Saudi Arabia's PIF. It doesn't plan to be a cornerstone investor. w/ @jennystrasburg 

asked all the American tech companies who received money from the Saudi sovereign wealth fund & Softbankvision fund about #JamalKhashoggi . A whole lot of silence and a little no comment

Saudi Arabia's sovereign fund will make another $45 billion investment in SoftBank chief Masayoshi Son’s second massive Vision Fund

Church must be watched closely, esp in tribal areas. Orgs like Vanavasi Kalyan Ashram need more fund, vision to counter Joshua-like projects
