This recent seekingAlpha piece is a very thorough rundown on the 40 or so car-sharing companies operating worldwide. It's a decent read for those looking to enhance their understanding of the sandbox ZipCar is playing in.http://seekingalpha.com/article/874221-zipcar-versus-the-com...In summary, Zipcar is by far the dominant car-sharing service in the US and from a global perspective. andZipcar has a solid track record of growing its membership base through organic growth and acquisitions. The company has not had a smooth path to date as a public company, yet it still has the potential to be able to attain positive net income and free cash flow at year-end. The car-sharing market is becoming more and more fragmented as new platforms progress. The company that takes the lead and is able to scale and consolidate will significantly be able to leverage itself as either a premium buyout candidate or a well-positioned car-sharing market leader. The next two quarters will be crucial for Zipcar to provide operational success and to continue to take advantage of this emerging market.-n8 (long)
