新CEO计划三年内让Uber上市

Kirsten Korosec 2017年09月07日

Uber即将上市,不过时间会在未来一年半到三年之间。

据媒体报道,参加上周三Uber全员大会的知情人士透露,新上任的首席执行官达拉·科斯罗萨西告诉员工,Uber即将上市,不过时间会在未来一年半到三年之间。

相关记者和Uber公关团队通过社交网站Twitter分享的消息显示,科斯罗萨西当天指出,上市的负面影响是,公司每个季度的业绩都会引人关注。

他说,上市让人“不爽”的一点就是每季度业绩都会受关注。

本周二科斯罗萨西正式走马上任,在此之前,他任在线旅行公司Expedia的首席执行官。今年Uber爆出一系列尴尬的丑闻,投资者不断施压,前首席执行官,也是Uber创始人特拉维斯·卡兰尼克最终于6月辞职。上周日,包括《赫芬顿邮报》创始人阿里安娜·赫芬顿在内的Uber董事会成员投票通过,科斯罗萨西将接任首席执行官。

投资者一直热切盼望Uber的首次公开募股,去年该公司估值曾高达680亿美元。

多家媒体援引匿名消息源描述了上周三Uber的全员大会,包括科斯罗萨西对IPO的评论,他表示上任后首先会重整核心业务,然后Uber可以考虑“搞些大事”,夺回竞争对手Lyft抢走的市场份额。

提振核心业务(现金流可能也要好好理顺),Uber才能努力实现特拉维斯的远大理想。

Uber公关团队在Twitter上发的一条推文说,科斯罗萨西当时表示:“公司一定要变革。之前成功的经验对今后并不一定有帮助。”

(科斯罗萨西)@dkhos:“自上而下推广(企业)文化没法让人们信服。文化是由下而上形成的。”

科斯罗萨西还说,董事会选出一位能与他通力合作的董事长很重要,只有齐心协力才能迅速推进工作日程,保持良好节奏。(财富中文网)

Uber's new CEO Dara Khosrowshahi told employees that the ride-hailing company should go public, but not for another 18 to 36 months, according to reports citing sources at an all-hands meeting Wednesday.

In his comments, some of which were shared via Twitter by reporters and Uber's own communications team, also Khosrowshahi noted the downside of going public was the attention to metrics every quarter.

Khosrowshahi, the former CEO of Expedia, will officially take over the new position on Tuesday, CNBC reported. Khosrowshahi will replace Travis Kalanick, who resigned as Uber CEO in June after a string of embarrassing scandals in 2017 prompted investors to pressure the founder to step down. On Sunday, Uber's board, which includes Arianna Huffington and , approved Khosrowshahi as the company's next CEO.

An Uber IPO has been hotly anticipated by investors, who placed a $68 billion valuation on the company last year.

Several reports, citing unnamed sources, recounted bits and pieces of the all-hands meeting, including Khosrowshahi's comments on an IPO, his plan to focus first on the core business so Uber can start making "big bets," and to earn back market share lost to rival Lyft.

"This company has to change. What got us here is not what’s going to get us to the next level," Khosrowshahi said, according to a tweet from Uber.

Khosrowshahi also said it will be important to bring in a chairman to be his partner at the board level, which will drive agenda & rhythm of the board.
