Uber Technologies (NYSE: UBER), which operates the world’s largest on-demand ridesharing network, raised $8.1 billion by offering 180 million shares at $45. At pricing, the company commanded a market value of $75.5 billion and qualifies for inclusion in the Renaissance IPO ETF effective Friday, May 17, 2019.

The Renaissance IPO ETF is designed to provide investors with efficient exposure to a portfolio of U.S.-listed newly public companies ahead of their inclusion in core equity portfolios. By tracking the rules-based Renaissance IPO Index designed by Renaissance Capital research to hold the largest, most liquid newly-listed U.S. IPOs, the Renaissance IPO ETF includes the most economically significant newly public companies. Sizable IPOs are added on a fast entry basis and the rest are added during scheduled quarterly reviews. Companies are removed two years after their initial trade date, when they become seasoned equities.
