Quarterly Sales at Uber Rose by 61% Amidst Big Loss


Over the entire 2017, Uber lost $4.5 billion, whereas it was "only" about $2.8 billion in the red a year earlier, though 2016 isn't considered an optimal reference point for evaluating its long-term performance because the majority of its losses incurred over that year was amortized by the sale of its China business to local rival Didi Chuxing.

However, Uber's loss of $1.1bn in the final quarter of the year was down 21% on the figure of $1.4bn in 2016.

Uber's losses widened a year ago, despite signs that it was pulling back from the brink in the final three months.

On the contrary, if Uber is able to convince that the allegations imposed by Waymo are false and they are clean, then this would not only hit Waymo but also its parent companies like Alphabet and Google Inc to a great extent. The San Francisco-based group's gross bookings also climbed 14 percent to $11.1 billion in the quarter.

"It looked messy and it was messy", Khosrowshahi said on stage at a Goldman Sachs technology conference in San Francisco on Wednesday.

Despite a turbulent year for the ride-hailing company, sales were $7.5 billion. "If you draw that out further, a year from now, this could be a significant IPO waiting to happen", he said.

That's right! A fresh new teaser of " Oru Adaar Love " is her and it has viral written all over it. Abdul Kauser, a businessman who also signed the complaint, said, "We don't take to streets".

Dara Khosrowshahi, who became the American company's chief executive officer in August 2017, has set out his long-term vision for Uber, which apparently includes running buses, subways, and hire bike systems. Few historical precedents exist for the scale of Uber's loss. On an adjusted basis, excluding stock-based compensation, legal costs, taxes and depreciation, the company lost $2.2 billion for the full year.

Uber Technologies Inc. suffered through a hard 2017, but its business was able to grow nevertheless.

The investment was part of an effort by Uber to move past a series of scandals and missteps and reform its board structure as it gears up for a 2019 public share offering.

Last year was a particularly bad one for Uber with its reputation tarnished by the company's acknowledgement of rampant sexual harassment within its ranks, a year-long cover-up of a major computer break-in, and the use of duplicitous software to thwart government regulators.

CEO Travis Kalanick was ousted in June and replaced by Khosrowshahi in August.

Last week, the company said it would pay 245 million Dollars in shares of Waymo, the Alphabet self-governing unit, to end its litigation in connection with the charge of stealing trade secrets.
