Uber lost more than $800 million (more than R11 billion) in the third quarter of 2016, according to Bloomberg.
The company doesn’t make its results known publically.

The ride sharing firm should exceed $5.5 billion (R77 billion) in revenue for the year.
Uber is valued at $69 billion (R969 billion).
That’s more than the combined value of General Motors and Twitter.
