With an estimation of 10 billion dollars for Uber IPO, Uber is said to be the biggest public offer in the market in 2019. The positive result stemmed from a windfall that Uber generated from the sale of its operations in Russian Federation and Southeast Asia.

"Our continued success will come from stellar execution and the strength of the platform we have worked so hard to build", CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said in a letter in the filing.

The blowback from the problems assisted Lyft pickup ground in the US - a thing Uber acknowledged in its own filing - and contributed to the ouster of both Uber co-founder Travis Kalanick since CEO in 2017.

In addition to answering questions about Uber's finances, CEO Khosrowshahi will be tasked with convincing investors that he has successfully changed the culture and business practices after a series of embarrassing scandals over the last two years. But revenue in 2017 had more than doubled from 2016. Alphabet also owns approximately 5% of Uber rival Lyft's inventory.
