(Reuters) - Lyft Inc founders are preparing to take near-majority voting control of the ride-hailing company when it goes public this year, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, citing sources familiar with the matter.
Zimmer and Green, who serve as president and chief executive officer respectively, are working with underwriters and lawyers on a plan to create a class of shares with extra votes that they will hold, the report said.
Lyft is also expected to appoint one of its existing board members as non-executive chairman, the WSJ reported.
A Lyft spokeswoman declined to comment.
