Travis Kalanick continues to shrink his holding in Uber Technologies Inc.

The co-founder and former chief executive officer of the ride-hailing firm sold 6.1 million shares since Thursday for $171 million, according to a regulatory filing.

Kalanick, 43, has offloaded 33 million shares so far this month, collecting $882 million. That represents about a third of the stake he held in the San Francisco-based company after Uber’s May initial public offering.

The trades came after a 180-day lockup period restricting insider and early investor sales ended on Nov. 6. The stock (UBER) has slumped 40% since the IPO.

The entrepreneur, who was ousted as Uber’s CEO in 2017, created a fund called 10100 last year to invest in “big bets.”

His latest business is CloudKitchens, which bets on so-called dark kitchens becoming a backbone of the rapidly expanding food-delivery market.

The startup got $400 million of funding from Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund in January, valuing it at $5 billion, the Wall Street Journal reported Nov. 7. Kalanick has invested $300 million in this latest venture.

Kalanick is still an Uber director and his remaining 3.8% stake is worth $1.7 billion. He has a net worth of $3.4 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
