Uber Technologies Inc. Announces First Public Offer According to Three Persons This is an important step on the way to an important milestone for one of Silicon Valley's most watched and controversial companies.
The company, which is working with the hail request, complained on Thursday about the secret paperwork with its smaller US rival. Lyft Inc., also announced Thursday, had floated an IPO and set the stage for one of the largest technology listings ever.

Uber's latest valuation was $ 76 billion and could be $ 120 billion on an initial public offering. Its next year's listing would be the largest in a series of public debuts by highly valued Silicon Valley companies, including Airbnb, the rental company Airbnb and the messaging company Slack.

Uber has a deadline for the IPO on September 30, and a filing this week suggests that the debut will come sooner than that.
