Uber, which once enjoyed the coveted title of being the most valuable VC-backed company in the US, has finally ended its long and tumultuous journey to the public markets.

The company has priced its shares near the low end of its expected price range at $45 apiece, valuing its IPO at roughly $75.5 billion—a significant plunge from previous reports that indicated a valuation of up to $120 billion. The latest S-1 filing also notes that PayPal will purchase $500 million of Uber's common stock as part of a private placement that will allow the two companies to collaborate on future commercial payment technology.
