Amman: India lost 1-2 against Japan in a 5th WAFF U-16 Championship match here in their first-ever meeting between the two countries at this level but head coach Bibiano Fernandes said the “encouraging” performance will go a long way in boosting the confidence of his players. India took the lead in the 26th minute through Vikram Pratap Singh when he converted from the spot but Japan came back in the second half to pump in two goals, one each from Kuraba Kondo (57th) and Shoji Toyama (64th). “The performance would go a long way in instilling the belief not just within the team but among a lot of supporters and well-wishers and among all stakeholders that we can play,” Fernandes said.ALSO READ | Sunil Chhetri named ‘Asian Icon’ by AFC on his birthday, gets praise for rivalling Ronaldo, Messi“The goal was a special moment for all of us, scoring against Japan to take the lead is so much satisfying. We were upbeat and confident from the start and understandably there was a lot of excitement on the bench when we took the lead,” he added. India have qualified for the AFC U-16 Championship in Malaysia and are currently on an exposure tour to Jordan. “Undoubtedly Japan has been the best Asian team we have played so far. Their confidence on the ball, awareness and passing ability is exceptional. Taking the lead against such an opposition midway into the first-half is a huge motivation for us for the future,” he added. “But this is not where the team would stop. We know there are miles to go and these boys have the capability to march on,” the coach said. Asked what did he tell his boys at the half time, Fernandes said, “As we headed to the locker room after 45 minutes with a 1-0 lead, we were aware of the task we had at hand in the second half. We knew we would have to do a lot in the second half to maintain it because of the quality they (Japan) have in their team. ALSO READ | Football Delhi to celebrate Sunil Chhetri’s birthday with exhibition game“Japan had an upper hand in the second half.

But Uber is more complicated than its competitor, making valuing the company ahead of its IPO more difficult and open to interpretation.That’s because it’s not purely a ride-sharing company and also derives revenue from its food delivery service, Uber Eats, as well as smaller bets such as Uber Freight, Damodaran said. Plus, Uber’s ambitions have been more global than Lyft’s, which has kept its focus on the U.S. and Canada. Uber is also complicated because of major restructuring in the three years leading up to its IPO, as it exited cash-burning investments in China, Southeast Asia, and Russia, leaving the company with losses in the billions.But the “good news” is when Damodaran isolated the metrics in the regions where Uber had continuing operations, he found gross billings, net revenues, riders, and rides all increased “strongly” in the last three years.Damodaran, an author of multiple books on valuation and corporate finance, arrived at a $61.7 billion in equity value after his analysis, or $54 a share, when adding up Uber’s assets. In another analysis looking at the company based on its riders, he calculated a $58.6 billion valuation, or $51 a share. But, he said depending on the metric used to scale the company’s worth, the overall value can vary by about $80 billion, from $47 billion to $124 billion, depending on the metric scaled to.No matter how investors arrive at their valuations, the reality is that “Uber will be priced by the market, and it will be priced relative to Lyft,” he said.What is true is that investors have struggled even when it comes to Lyft. After Lyft priced at the high end of its IPO range and surged 21% in its debut, it fell below its IPO price within days and has struggled since. Shares of the ride-sharing company are down another 6% in Monday’s trade.You May Like HealthFormer GE CEO Jeff Immelt: To Combat Costs, CEOs Should Run Health Care Like a BusinessHealthFor Edie Falco, an ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ After Surviving Breast CancerLeadershipGhosn Back, Tesla Drop, Boeing Report: CEO Daily for April 4, 2019AutosElon Musk’s Plan to Boost Tesla Sales Is Dealt a SetbackMPWJoe Biden, Netflix Pregnancy Lawsuit, Lesley McSpadden: Broadsheet April 4last_img read more
