Uber Technologies Inc may face a cooler reception from investors than expected when it prices its initial public offering next month since smaller USA ride-hailing rival Lyft Inc's aggressive stock launch and subsequent fall.
Lyft beat Uber to the stock market last month with an IPO that raised $2.3 billion, but its shares have been backsliding after an early run-up. And the $60.12 close was 16.5 percent below Lyft's final IPO price of $72 and even under the low end of its initial price target range of $62 to $68. But its 2018 operating loss was just over $3 billion, down from the $4 billion net loss it incurred in 2017.
The massive filing shows Uber has been generating the robust revenue growth that entices investors, but also racked up almost $8 billion in losses over its 10 years in existence, which mirrors the same trend challenging Lyft, Uber's main rival in the U.S. The company did not disclose how much it is planning to raise, though it was last valued at $76 billion and there have been reports it could raise $100 billion. The San Francisco-based company applied to list on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker UBER, according to its filing Thursday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
