Uber IPO: Six things you need to know

In IPO filing, Uber calls out Seattle and warns ‘regulatory risks’ in big cities could impact bottom line

According to Bloomberg, the ridesharing giant, Uber should be the biggest IPO of 2019 with 10 billion dollars in estimates for their public offer, while people who are familiar with the matter are said to have spoken to Bloomberg regarding the date of the IPO.

The offering, which could value Uber at around US$100 billion (S$136 billion), would be the biggest since China's Alibaba Group began trading on the New York Stock Exchange in 2014.

Uber in 2018 had $11.3 billion revenue, increasing 42 percent over 2017, but less than the 106 percent growth the prior year.

Nonetheless, investors should note that in the early stages of development for a company such as Uber, the consistent maintenance of high business growth is more important than risk factors, which gradually become more important as the company matures.

Disney unveiled more details about its upcoming streaming service. In 2017, the company's number of trips, including personal mobility trips and Uber Eats deliveries, rose ~106% YoY (year-over-year) to ~3.7 billion.

That history that is unprofitable could force its costs to be finally raised by Uber unless it can reduce its costs by shifting to driverless cars or expand to other markets and lines of business. The long-awaited documents give potential investors a look inside the company's financial state before its highly anticipated IPO, which is expected later this month.

The breakdown reveals Uber has been producing.

Curry sets playoff record as Warriors dominate Clippers
Beverley did not score in the first half and wound up with three points on 1-for-7 shooting, seven assists and seven rebounds. For his part, Clippers coach Doc Rivers was less than pleased with the officiating in the opener.

Chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi, who took over in 2017 as part of an effort to reform a corporate culture marred by misconduct and other scandals, said Uber has taken steps to restore its brand and credibility.

Lyft, Uber's direct competitor, went public last month, and since, its stock has dropped more than 20 per cent. These bonuses, which were previously reported, are intended for drivers to use to purchase stock in Uber at the IPO price, as companies legally can't provide stock to non-employees. This will return before executives head out on a so-called street series created to drum up interest in the IPO among institutional investors that will be given the first opportunity to buy the inventory before it starts trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

Uber said its market share fell in most regions previous year, although the rate of decline has slowed.

Uber is also expanding in other markets such as freight while offering other ways to get around with shared scooters and bikes. Its food delivery business, which spans 500 cities doubled its revenue in 2018 to $757 million from $367 million in 2017.

The blowback in the problems assisted Lyft pickup soil in the US and contributed to the ouster of both Uber co-founder Travis Kalanick CEO in 2017. It established its very first test automobile that was self-driving in 2016 and its own vehicle division has more than 1,000 employees, and more than 250 cars have been built by it so far.

The parent firm of Google, alphabet, owns 5 percent of the company as it competes with Uber on self-driving technology. Officials also possesses approximately 5 percent of Uber equal Lyft's inventory.
