After Uber’s main rival, Lyft, under the thicker (LYFT) went public in a debut on March 29th, 2019, Uber submitted a public filing for their own IPO only two weeks later, however, unlike Lyft that decided to go public on Nasdaq exchange, Uber announced getting a listing on New York Stock Exchange.
The company also published financial reports for several quarters back, and after being evaluated at 120 billion dollars presenting one of the biggest IPOs by far, Uber will go ahead with the public debut at a lower estimate between 90 billion and 100 billion dollars.
Uber is looking to raise around 10 billion dollars through their IPO, while the company should most probably go public in May 2019.
