One of the largest ride-hailing and delivery companies, Uber, reported mixed Q1 2021 figures
For the first three months of the year, it reported a loss-per-share of 6 cents, a significant improvement from what the market expected – 54 cents. At the same time, delivery revenue outperformed the core ride-hailing segment at $1.7 billion, compared with $853 million. The Eats segment’s revenue increased 28% quarter over quarter.
Overall, Uber’s net loss came in at $108 million, a significant improvement from $968 million reported in Q4 2020. The progress was set in motion by the $1.6 billion gain from the sale of its self-driving unit, ATG, to Aurora.
The number of drivers and couriers reached approximately 3.5 million, marking a 4% rise quarter over quarter. However, the numbers are 22% lower than what it reported during the same time last year. Trips on the platform were flat at 1.45 billion and 13% lower from the same quarter a year ago.
Just like Lyft, which also had earnings report, Uber is also in need of drivers to meet demand. Last month, it announced that it would spend $250 million on a one-time stimulus to attract drivers.
While initially, its stock price went up after the report, it dipped more than 4.5%.
