Uber's Ready to IPO
Uber Technologies has selected the New York Stock Exchange for its upcoming initial public offering, Bloomberg reported, in what could be one of the five biggest listings of all time.
The ride-hailing company is expected to publicly file for its offering in April. The IPO could value the company at as much as $120 billion and is likely to be the biggest of the year, people familiar with the plans previously have said. At that valuation, Uber would only have to float about 16% of its shares to make the top five, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

The company, which filed its IPO paper confidentially with the Securities and Exchange Commission earlier this year, could make its filing public as early as Friday. It would list on the New York Stock Exchange as soon as in mid-April, the Journal reported.
