1 Mins read

Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER) has announced impressive fourth-quarter earnings, surpassing expectations and providing an optimistic forecast for the current quarter. Despite this positive news, the company’s stock experienced a slight decline of 1% during premarket trading on Wednesday.

Strong Financial Performance

Uber reported a net income of $1.4 billion, or 66 cents per share, for the fourth quarter. This represents a substantial increase from the $595 million, or 29 cents per share, reported in the same period last year. Analysts had predicted earnings of only 16 cents per share, making this an exceptional achievement for the ridesharing giant.

The company’s revenue also saw substantial growth, rising to $9.9 billion from $8.6 billion in the previous year. The FactSet consensus had estimated revenue at $9.8 billion. Gross bookings showed a significant increase of 22%, reaching $37.6 billion, surpassing analysts’ expectations of $37.1 billion.

Driving Record Engagement

“People’s increasing engagement with Uber’s platform along with strategic investments in new growth opportunities were key factors contributing to our exceptional performance in the fourth quarter,” emphasized Chief Financial Officer Prashanth Mahendra-Rajah.

The company’s platform advantages and focus on disciplined investments yielded record engagement and accelerated gross bookings in Q4.

Promising Outlook

Looking ahead to the first quarter, Uber anticipates gross bookings between $37.0 billion and $38.5 billion, alongside adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) in the range of $1.26 billion to $1.34 billion. These figures align with the FactSet consensus estimates of $37.4 billion in gross bookings and $1.26 billion in EBITDA.


Uber’s remarkable Q4 performance and positive outlook demonstrate the company’s strength in the ridesharing industry. With an increasing number of users and strategic investments, Uber continues to solidify its position as a leader in the market.
