Beyond Meat (BYND) went public at the beginning of May 2019, taking the title of the most successful IPO for 2019 by far.
However, even though Beyond Meat is after a greater market share in a different sector when compared to the ridesharing giant, Uber, Uber IPO might as well take over the title of the most successful IPO in 2019.
What is for certain at present is that Uber IPO most certainly represents the biggest IPO for 2019 based on IPO estimates and valuation.
Uber is planning on going public already in May, although the exact date of Uber IPO is yet to be confirmed.
The ridesharing giant already announced their expected share price for the opening sale, setting the price range between 45$ and 50$, while investors consider that share price should start between 55$ and 65$ per share.
At the announced price planned by Uber, the company could potentially raise up to 9 billion dollars with their IPO.
Previously, the company has been evaluated at 120 billion, followed with a lowered estimate between 90 billion and 100 billion dollars.
