Uber seeks an IPO in close competition with its rideshare rival Lyft and other tech firms such as Slack, Pinterest, and Palantir. Uber expects to complete one of the largest tech IPOs with $120 billion firm valuation in April 2019. Both Uber and its rideshare rival Lyft release their recent S-1 confidential paperwork as of December 2018. With $50 billion taxi reservations and $11 billion net revenue, Uber runs a rideshare user network that is more diverse than the Lyft counterpart. As a global tech-savvy transportation company, Uber now operates in more than 70 countries with probable stock market valuation as high as $120 billion (well above its current $76 billion private market valuation). As a smaller rideshare tech firm, Lyft seeks stock market valuation of $20 billion to $25 billion (well above its current private market valuation of $15 billion).

With these astronomical stock market figures, both companies can handle their net losses below $1 billion per annum. SoftBank Vision Fund and Toyota Motor Corp are part of a consortium of capitalists that invest $1 billion in the Uber autonomous car unit. The current IPO proposal serves as a major strategic move for Uber to garner greater capital.
