  • Uber gave CNBC its second-quarter fianancials.
  •  Uber's Q2 net revenue was $2.7 billion, up 51% from the same quarter last year, and gross bookings were $12 billion, up 41% year-over-year.
  • That represents a slight slowdown in growth from Q1.

 

Uber is cruising toward $10 billion in revenue this year, despite a recent slump in growth, according to the company.

On Wednesday, Uber provided its second quarter financials to CNBC, reporting that the company generated $2.7 billion in net revenue, up 51% from the same quarter last year. Gross bookings were $12 billion, an increase of 41% year-over-year.

Uber's revenue and bookings growth dropped off slightly since Q1.

Here's what Uber told CNBC:

  • Net revenue for Q2: Uber reported $2.7 billion, up 51% from the same quarter last year. At that rate, Uber is on track for $10 billion in revenue this year.
  • Gross bookings for Q2: Uber reported $12 billion, up 41% year-over-year.
  • Adjusted net loss for Q2: Uber reported $659 million, up from $577 million in Q1. There's no standard definition for how a company comes up with this "adjusted" figure.
  • Gross cash on hand for Q2: Uber self-reported $7.3 billion at the end of the June quarter. That's an increase of $1 billion from the quarter before.

Uber is a private company, which means the company volunteers these financials to its own investors on a regular basis, but it does not publicly report them in a government filing every quarter. However, in the past, it has shared these figures with the media. 

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has said that he sees the startup on track for a 2019 IPO. It was last valued at $69 billion by private-market investors, though SoftBank recently purchased shares in the company at a $48 billion valuation.
