Uber IPO projected vs reality

Uber folks, congratulations on the IPO. The share price is holding at $45. I wonder how close is it to the projected price before the IPO? I am curious to know what's the gap between external valuation before IPO and reality after IPO.

This should impact the total comp that you received during your offer. Usually they expect the IPO price to be double or triple of the projected price. Is this the case in reality?

    I'm laughing my ass off at the Uber employees who jumped ship from Amazon/FB/Google in the hope of big IPO payout ..hahaha

      From an old blind thread in Oct 2018, someone was offered uber RSU based on $72B valuation. Current valuation is $75B. It does seem to at least match their expectation from 9 months ago valuation. Why would you think jumping the ship from Amazon was a bad idea?

      They gave shares bases on 409a price so the "valuation" back then was likely even lower

      Airbnb folks, when your company is heading for an IPO ? Is it also coming this year? Wonder how would that look like.

      Hires from the last 2 years got shares at 45$ I guess. They will all lose

      This is all ridiculous rant. They are all in lockup. Even if the stock went to 1000 today it means absolutely nothing to their wallets today. For those getting offers recently are even more remote with a year cliff. For amazon folks with the shitty comp and shitty vest schedule, I expected more awareness :)

    It’s a rough day for the market as a whole. Even worse for Uber and Lyft apparently.
