Lyft Announced Share Prices Alongside IPO Date: LYFT to Be Listed Already by the End of the Week

According to the latest report released by the company’s representatives, Lyft IPO is preparing to take off already by the end of March, as Lyft already got listed to commence with public trading on Nasdaq.

Even though Lyft managed to double their revenues in 2018, reporting 2.2 billion dollars compared to 1.1 billion in 2017, and 343 million dollars in 2016, some investors are worried because losses reported by the company are growing accordingly with the widening revenues.
