business news in context, analysis with attitude

•  Barron's reports that Deliveroo, a British food delivery company that is backed by Amazon and now operates in 12 countries, now is worth more than $7 billion "after a new funding round" and is preparing for an initial public offering (IPO) that could come as soon as April.

The story notes that "like its food-delivery peers such as Uber Eats, owned by Uber Technologies, Deliveroo has enjoyed a massive boost in sales from the Covid-19 pandemic, with millions of housebound people ordering in meals."
