Here are the figures for Lyft including the forecasts from analysts (who weren’t on the deal).

Note: I’d be surprised if we don’t see upgraded when the analysts who worked on the deal are allowed publish.

Next to Uber:

2016A 2017A 2018A
Bookings $19.2bn $34.4bn $49.8bn
Sales $3.8bn $7.9bn $11.3bn
EBITDA -$2.5bn -$2.6bn -$1.8bn

The sheer scale of Uber versus Lyft is astounding.

Users 91m 16m 6x
Trips 5.2bn 0.6bn 9x
Bookings $49.8bn $8.1bn 6x

With Lyft worth $17bn, even after the chute below IPO price a straight revenue multiple puts Uber at a $81bn to $91bn depending on which revenue figure you use (reported or core-platform revenues).
