Uber Releases Q1 ‘22 Financials, Shows Outperformance of 136% YoY to $6.9bn Revenue Growth

Uber Technologies, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2022 which ended March 31, 2022.

Highlights from the report 

  • The company’s Gross Bookings grew 35% year-over-year (“YoY”) to $26.4 billion, or 39% on a constant currency basis, with Mobility Gross Bookings of $10.7 billion (+58% YoY) and Delivery Gross Bookings of $13.9 billion (+12% YoY). Trips during the quarter grew 18% YoY to 1.71 billion, or approximately 19 million trips per day on average.
  • Revenue grew 136% YoY to $6.9 billion, or 141% on a constant currency basis, with Revenue growth significantly outpacing Gross Bookings growth primarily due to the acquisition of Transplace by Freight, a change in the business model for our UK Mobility business, and an easier comparison in Q1 2021 due to the accrual for historical claims in the UK.
  • Net loss attributable to Uber Technologies, Inc. was $5.9 billion, which includes a $5.6 billion headwind (pre-tax) relating to Uber’s equity investments, primarily due to aggregate unrealized losses related to the revaluation of Uber’s Grab, Aurora, and Didi stakes. Additionally, net loss includes $359 million in stock-based compensation expenses.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $168 million, up $527 million YoY. Adjusted EBITDA margin as a percentage of Gross Bookings was 0.6%, up from (1.8)% in Q1 2021. This translates to 7.6% on a YoY incremental margin basis, as a percentage of Gross Bookings.
  • Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities was $15 million, up $626 million YoY. Free cash flow, defined as net cash flows from operating activities less capital expenditures, was an outflow of $47 million, improving $635 million YoY.

Speaking on the result, Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO of Uber said:

Our results demonstrate just how much progress we’ve made navigating out of the pandemic and how the power of our platform is differentiating our business performance.

In April, Mobility Gross Bookings exceeded 2019 levels across all regions and use cases. There’s never been a more exciting time to innovate at Uber and we’re focused on executing our strategy to grow our platform profitably.”

We are pleased with our Q1 results, with outperformance of our quarterly guidance and strong incremental margins,” said Nelson Chai, CFO. “With free cash flow approaching breakeven in Q1, we now expect to generate meaningful positive free cash flows for full-year 2022.”
