New Uber CEO plans public offering

· 每日跟讀單元 Daily English

Uber Technologies’ new CEO Dara Khosrowshahi on Thursday last week held a staff meeting and promised he would do his utmost for the company while announcing that the future for Uber may include going public.


According to photographs published on the Internet, Khosrowshahi wore an Uber T-shirt while attending an all-staff meeting at the company’s San Francisco headquarters. Khosrowshahi posted a tweet on his Twitter account of his new Uber ID badge and wrote: “I checked it and it works!”


According to the Wall Street Journal and other US media reports, during his talk with Uber employees, Khosrowshahi said he believes that Uber, which is currently a privately held company, should go public and said that an initial public offering could take place in the next 18 to 36 months.


Last Tuesday, Uber announced that it had recruited Khosrowshahi, previously the CEO at US online travel company Expedia Inc, to take the helm. Uber hopes that, by appointing Khosrowshahi, it can shake off a string of controversies that has dogged the ride-hailing service over the past year.
