Home care startup Honor received a SoftBank term sheet in November. The deal was reportedly worth about $150M. SoftBank said it needed some time for standard due diligence, and then abruptly pulled the deal in late December.
Similar deals died for B2B sales software startup Seismic and food prep robotics company Creator.
Sources attribute the turbulence to struggling funding for Vision Fund 2 and the failed WeWork IPO and bailout.
