Explain how the acquisition creates value for Uber’s shareholders

Chapter Six discusses Corporate Level Strategy and covers growth through external avenues (e.g. mergers and acquisitions). Recently, Uber has launched an attempt to buy Grubhub (this is still ongoing and has not been completed as of this writing). Using this acquisition, explain the type of diversification (horizontal related integration, horizontal related diversification, etc.), and explain how the acquisition creates value for Uber’s shareholders (that is, how does the acquisition make a better single organization than the two separate entities, discuss the synergies created, etc.)
