In terms of performance, Turo was overall quite successful inFY 2022. The company generated $52 million in revenue and had a net loss of only $1.7 million–a remarkable turnaround from the nearly $60 million deficit it ran in FY 2021. This impressive performance is likely due to the continued growth of its customer base, as well as higher gross bookings (the total amount paid for rental car services) than any other year over the past two years.
Some analysts say that Turo may have overpromised and underdelivered when it came to its public offering, but the company’s continued growth indicates that there is still a large untapped market for its services. Whether or not Turo goes public next year remains to be seen, but either way, it is clear that the company has a bright future ahead of it.

The first company to go public through the opening of the public-offering window this year is most likely not one you would have guessed. Turo, a transportation startup that runs an online marketplace for renting cars and motorcycles, announced on Wednesday that it has submitted a Form S-1 documenting its intent to list on the TSX Venture Exchange. The company plans to raise up to $33 million in its IPO and will be offered 20 million shares at $8 per share. This is significant news because Turo stands to become one of the first companies in what could be a very lucrative year for tech startups looking to go public. In 2017, there were 167 IPOs worth a total amount of $126 billion, which was more than double the value of IPOs raised in 2016 (53 billion dollars). This jump indicates that there are numerous
With an estimated market value of $1.28 billion, Turo is one of the more valuable unicorns in the startup world. The company has been around since 2009 and has gradually extended its model to include services such as car sharing and parking. If Turo were to go public it would certainly be one of the largest private-market IPOs ever, and could provide a valuable opportunity for investors looking to get involved in the rapidly growing car-sharing industry.
Turo has continued to grow at a rapid pace, reaching $1.5 billion in revenue in 2018 and growing 150% over the past three years. The company faces several challenges, such as rapid expansion and saturation of the rental market, but these should not negatively impact Turo’s long term growth prospects considering its nascent stage of development. Being able to dynamically allocate resources towards high value opportunities will be key to sustaining Turo’s growth trajectory and potential profitability.
