Revenue $11.3 billion. Losses $1.8 billion. Guess who.

Uber Technologies had $50 billion in total bookings for its ride-service and food-delivery businesses in 2018. Uber’s full-year revenue for 2018 was $11.3 billion, up 43 percent from the prior year, but losses before taxes, depreciation and other expenses were $1.8 billion.

Uber Eats, the food-delivery service, accounts for more than $2.5 billion in bookings quarterly. Uber Eats is also battling a crowded food-delivery industry, forcing it to adopt discounting tactics to compete with companies like food-delivery startup DoorDash, which is in the process of raising $500 million from investors at a $6 billion valuation, and restaurant and grocery delivery company Postmates, which filed for an IPO this month.
