Uber is on track is generate more than $5 billion in revenue this year, according to sources cited in a new report from Bloomberg. But that’s not enough, it seems.
The transportation company has lost well over $2 billion so far this year, sources say, and that excludes the financial disaster that was its launch in China. Despite this, Uber’s valuation is nearly $70 billion, more than many longstanding automakers and older Silicon Valley darlings.
It’s entirely possible, the report suggests, that Uber’s losses for the year could reach or even exceed $3 billion. In Uber’s home market is not profitable, having lost money in the nine-figures range for two straight quarters.
