(Reuters) – Ride-hailing company Uber Technologies Inc is planning to kick off its initial public offering in April, putting it close on the heels of its smaller rival Lyft Inc, people familiar with the matter said on Thursday.

Next month, Uber will issue its required public disclosure, known as an S-1, and launch its investor roadshow, the people said.

The timing for Uber’s IPO means it will most likely be hitting the public markets soon after Lyft completes its own public offering, which is expected to happen by the end of March, people familiar with the matter said.

Uber declined to comment.
