Published by Globes, Israel business news - en. Gali Weinreb. Lumenis photo: Jonathan Bloom.InDara Khosrowshahi's first full year as Uber's CEO, the company narrowed losses and continued to grow revenue, though at a slower pace than in the previous year.
The figure excludes the company's sale of its Russia and Southeast Asia businesses. So while the growth rate is strong by most standards, Uber's growth decelerated over On a quarterly basis, Uber continues to report heavy losses and slowing growth.
It's the highest it has ever been, the company told investors. In the lead-up to its IPO, Uber is pitching itself as a full platform for transportation and logistics, not just ride-hailing. The company hopes that moonshot projects such as Uber freight, electronic bikes, autonomous driving and its development of flying cars will help it own a piece of every trip across any vehicle. However, these segments are costly for Uber to develop, weighing on Uber's long-term profitability.
Khosrowshahi took over Uber in November from founder Travis Kalanick. He inherited a company that was growing quickly but losing billions overseas and roiled by controversy and board infighting.
One of his first moves was to retreat from Russia. A few months later, he sold Uber's unprofitable Southeast Asia business.
At the same time, Khosrowshahi has made big expensive bets, such as Uber's acquisition of the bike- and scooter-sharing start-up Jump, and doubling down on expanding Uber Eats. Uber now considers food delivery part of its core business, along with ride-hailing.
While it didn't break out UberEats for the fourth quarter, the segment made up 17 percent of its business in Q3. Back in October, Uber said it was expanding its food-delivery business to cover 70 percent of the U. Uber's take rate, or the percentage of revenue Uber makes for every gross booking, declined in Q4. The company told investors that the decline is due to continued investment in new lines of business and rising competition.
Uber may be spending more in the lead-up to its IPO to shore up its market share. Lyft is also gearing up for an IPO this year, and both companies are racing to get out first. Uber and Lyft filed to go public confidentially on the same day.
