Kalanick has sold more than $1.7 billion worth of Uber shares since Nov. 6, when the initial-public-offering lockup period expired. It is unclear what Kalanick plans to do with the proceeds.

He did not immediately respond to FOX Business’ request for comment.

Kalanick, who stepped down as CEO in June 2017 amid scrutiny of the firm's handling of harassment and discrimination complaints, still owns more than 36 million shares of the company, worth more than $1.07 billion at Tuesday’s closing price of $29.53 a share.
