Next month, Uber will issue its required public disclosure, known as an S-1, and launch its investor roadshow, the people said.
The timing for Uber’s IPO means it will most likely be hitting the public markets soon after Lyft completes its own public offering, which is expected to happen by the end of March, people familiar with the matter said.
Uber and Lyft join a number of tech companies expected to go public this year, including Slack, Pinterest and Palantir.
Uber declined to comment.
