Hello and welcome to TechCrunch's equity-driven podcast, Equity, where we unpack the numbers behind the headlines.
First, we buried the last S-1 file in Uber's . This time around, the company has set a price range for itself (TechCrunch here) that amounts to $ 84 billion and also details the estimates for the first quarter results (Crunchbase News here).
We believe that Uber ultimately awards a prize this area. The time will tell.
And then we turned to Slack, whose direct listing will help establish the historical tone for the unicorn era. Fuck your money, Slack says, we have our own. Well, maybe not, but the company has seen impressive growth, killer margins and, surprisingly, larger GAAP deficits than we expected. The registration of the company was fascinating.
But do not worry, we can figure out how to value Slack. It is Uber who scratched our heads. Expect another blizzard of news and numbers next week.
