Lyft Inc on Wednesday raised the price range for its initial public offering, as investors looked past the ride-hailing startup's mounting losses to the company's growing market share against larger rival Uber Technologies Inc.

It also indicates many investors are willing to overlook uncertainty over Lyft's path to profitability and its strategy for autonomous driving, for fear of missing out on such a high-profile tech IPO. That would make Lyft's offering the biggest U.S. IPO since Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.in 2014. It's the first of several tech IPOs expected this year.
The price sets Lyft's market value at $24 billion, which will quickly change Friday after the shares start trading on the Nasdaq exchange. Reuters reported the IPO was oversubscribed after just two days.
Ives called Lyft's stock market debut a "watershed" event for the tech sector and ridesharing industry that he saw as "one of the most transformational growth sectors of the USA consumer market over the past five years".

"Nobody knew they (Lyft) would catch up to this level", said Navin Chaddha, a venture capitalist with Silicon Valley firm Mayfield, which invested in Lyft in 2011. With Uber and Google's autonomous auto project, Waymo, ramping up the pressure, Wedbush noted that an "arms race" will create a number of uncertainties for Lyft.
