Uber raised $2 billion in a bond sale.

The privately held ride-sharing company Uber Technologies has raised $2 billion in a junk bond sale ahead of its 2019 initial public offering, a report by CNBC said on Thursday.

Uber raised $1.5 billion through the sale of eight-year notes with a yield of 8% and got another $500 million by selling five-year notes with a yield of 7.5% in a private placement led by investment bank Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), the report said.

Uber's IPO could be valued at more than $100 billion, which would be a record on Wall Street after the IPO of Chinese e-commer giant Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) which raised around $25 billion in 2014, the biggest such IPO to date.

Uber's Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi said last month the company is on track to launch its IPO next year.
