Uber IPO: key facts

Uber IPO: key facts

Founded in 2009, the San Francisco-based ridesourcer helped disrupt and create an entire industry. Despite Uber’s huge global reach and diversification into food delivery and bicycle-sharing services, investors were unconvinced with its potential profitability. Ultimately, this saw its market cap collapse from an estimated USD 120 billion to USD 82 billion after listing on 10 May. Uber’s CEO has moved to reassure investors over its falling price, claiming its success should not be measured ‘over a day’ but ‘over the years’.
