Uber Plans to Go an IPO

Uber has referred to a growing number of competition laws across the EU the US Brazil and India as an area of concern

Citywide, the borough has one of the highest concentrations of residents who are Uber drivers, data shows. The company has gradually resumed testing, and is now operating only a handful of vehicles in a small geographic area in Pittsburgh.

The San Francisco company also disclosed a legal cloud hanging over its head as government authorities and regulators investigate whether the company broke any laws.

"Use of cash could increase the security risks for drivers and riders, including potential robbery, assault, violent or fatal attacks, and other criminal acts", Uber said.

After Uber unveiled its pitch to investors ahead of the company's initial public offering, here are six of the most significant things to know.

His notice of optimism and contrition struck in a letter contained in the national documents.

Some investors are similarly bullish about Uber's future, especially as it relates to autonomous driving technology. Delivery has been particularly successful for McDonald's, which offers the service to 13,000 units globally, and delivery now makes up about 10% of sales at some McDonald's restaurants, according to the filing. Drivers for both companies whine about wages, and they're able to easily change making it hard for either company maintain passengers fares and to reduce driver expenses.

In an effort to reward long-time drivers, Uber said it would give drivers "a Driver appreciation reward" in an amount equal to $100 for 2,500 rides, $500 for 5,000 rides, $1,000 for 10,000 rides, or $10,000 for 20,000 rides.

That history that is unprofitable could force its costs to be finally raised by Uber unless it can reduce its costs by shifting to driverless cars or expand to other markets and lines of business.

USE OF CASH RISKY Uber said the contribution of cash-paid trips may increase in the future but flagged regulatory, operational and safety concerns related to the payment method. "That's a sign that will be looked on favorably in the next few weeks". Lyft's stock now is currently hovering around $61down from the IPO price of $72.

The rocky start may have prompted Uber to tamp down its IPO ambitions.

Uber is the largest of the "unicorns" or venture backed firms worth at least $1 billion to list on Wall Street, and is one of the key companies in the "sharing economy" which is based on offering services to replace ownership of cars, homes and other commodities.

The investment bankers handling Uber's IPO are expected to reveal a pricing range for Uber's shares later this month.

The company is on its way to price its IPO and start trading on the New York Stock Exchange in early May.

In the long run, Uber is broadly expected to be the tech IPO since Chinese e-commerce giant.

Uber launched as a vehicle service where customers are able to hail drivers with a couple taps on a smartphone as UberCab, in 2009. Its title shortened from 2010, distancing itself from the taxicab business, which has been criticized the firm for operating under less regulation than the traditional cab market.
