. bad news for boeing amid reports that the anti stall system was on that ethiopian airlines flight crashed. business i'm john elder and in berlin thanks for joining us it's the first friday hailing company to go public lift sped past its bigger rival beating it all the way to wall street high demand for the offer lifted lifts thought it raised two point three billion dollars in the i.p.o. its market debut is expected to set the stage for our other companies preparing to get listed but some are warning of too much excitement too fast. i friday's nasdaq trading bell rang at the california headquarters of the ride sharing mix almost being seems a turning point for the so-called sharing economy founded in twenty companies now
valued at more than twenty four million dollars in those early days we were told we were crazy to think people would ride each other's personal vehicles. and now after more than one billion rides we're able to look forward to a world we've long imagined design last for cars and more for people. lift his outpaced its ride sharing rivals to become the first to list but the globally dominant is also expected to make its wall street debut soon valued is almost five times as much as left ny the company has had a smooth ride here though both have been accused of taking advantage of the gig economy to underpay drivers and have been blamed for increasing traffic congestion in cities lifts i.p.o. follows last week's denim clad day on the trading floor when levi's listed for the second time with as many as three hundred u.s. firms including who are thought to be preparing to go public the i.p.o.
