Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan are the lead underwriters for DASH, while SoftBank is the largest shareholder with about 20% stake, followed by Sequoia, which owns 16%.

DoorDash is trading at just over 16 times revenue, if you project the latest quarter out over a full year, while Uber is trading just under 8 times sales.

As its revenue grew, DoorDash also narrowed its net loss to $149 million over the same period in 2020. In 2019, DoorDash had a net loss of $533 million over the nine-month period.

Meanwhile, AirBnb is also set to go public later this week.
