It is a very straightforward business model, which is not too capital intensive and has healthy margins,” stated CEO Adrian P. McKenzie.

About the Rideshare/ Transportation Network Providers(TNP) Space:

A TNP company, also referred to as a rideshare company, provides prearranged transportation services for compensation through an Internet-enabled application or digital platform to connect passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire. TNP drivers with their vehicles join and become affiliated with TNP companies, and are then available to be dispatched through the TNP’s digital platform. Uber and Lyft are the leaders in the industry, with Uber’s valuation being about $120 Billion and Lyft’s valuation at around $15-$30 Billion Dollars.

With IPO’s of both Uber and Lyft, which are speculated to be in the near future, both companies are working diligently with US regulators to get to the public markets (it is speculated Lyft will IPO within the next few weeks). Investment banking professionals from around the world have been touting theses two expected IPO’s as the next major shift in the TNP sector. Some have even speculated that the Uber IPO could be the biggest Tech IPO ever in history.

Investors in Uber (who currently dominate the rideshare space) include those from Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund and Japan’s Softbank. According to cnbc.com, their urban mobility platform is still growing, and Uber’s Gross bookings were $37 billion in 2017, up from $20 billion in 2016. Net revenue (the amount left after paying drivers) reached $7.4 billion in 2017, an increase of nearly 14 percent over the prior year. Also fueling the company’s growth is UberEATS, which was launched in 2016. The food-delivery service is now available in 120 cities worldwide, and is actually bigger than the company’s ride-hailing business in several Asian markets, including Tokyo, Taipei, Seoul, and South Korea.
