"We seek to make Uber a just workplace and there can be absolutely no place for this kind of behaviour at Uber - and anyone who behaves this way or thinks this is OK will be fired." said former CEO Travis Kalanick.
As a privately held company, Uber is not required to publicly report its financial results, but earlier this year it began offering a glimpse of its performance by disclosing certain numbers to some media outlets.
The number of trips taken by global users increased 150 per cent year-over-year, including 90-per cent growth in developed markets and over 250-per cent growth in developing markets, the start-up said.
Uber said it had a net loss of $645 million, down from a loss of $708 million in the first quarter and $991 million in the fiscal 2016 fourth quarter.
Uber's business continues to grow as it licks its wounds from a tumultuous beginning to 2017.
Since his departure, Kalanick has attempted to retain three board seats he controls, all while Benchmark sues him for fraud. "Benchmark's shameful tactics and unfounded claims punish Uber, its employees and its investors at a critical time when the company most needs stability and leadership".
Following Uber's scandal-ridden year, four mutual fund firms have chose to trim their investments in the company, suggesting that months of controversies were affecting its $68 billion value and that Uber really needs to solve its myriad of problems. Uber is now in need of a CEO, COO, CFO, CMO and SVP of engineering.
Sexual harassment, an overthrown chief executive, bitter boardroom in-fighting and a major lawsuit have not affected Uber's business. Meanwhile, Uber's adjusted net revenue rose to $US1.75 billion in the period. This number excludes China, where Uber past year ceded the market to Chinese ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing, but it includes Russia, Axios noted. The loss figures, allowing for earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, came in at $534 million, down from $598 million in the quarter before.
