    Investment Idea Details
    About the company

    Malwarebytes is a developer of cybersecurity software designed to protect consumers and businesses against malicious threats that escape detection by traditional antivirus solutions.

    Founded in 2008, the company is headquartered in California, with offices in Europe and Asia, and a global team of threat researchers and security experts.

    In 2018 Malwarebytes was named a gold winner in the Cyber Security Vendor Achievement of the Year.

    Market Opportunities

    The cybersecurity market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 17% from USD 120 billion in 2017 to USD 300 billion by 2024, according to a 2019 Global Market Insights, Inc. report.

    According to J.P. Morgan study, top managers of the leading US companies plan to increase investments in cybersecurity software services in the next five years, which would represent a growth driver for this market and secure long-term contracts with large clients for service providers in this market.

    Risks

    Malwarebytes competes in the software security industry and faces a competitive landscape, which may affect Malwarebytes’ long-term viability.

    Asymmetric information. Management and current investors have access to more internal information about the company than other market participants.

    Illiquidity. There is a possibility that early exit from this investment will take more than 1 month.

    Financials and Valuation

    Malwarebytes was ranked 313 in Deloitte's Technology Fast 500. The Company disclosed that it grew revenue by more than 250% between FY2014 and FY2017.

    According to Inc., Malwarebytes had revenues of $126.2M in 2017. It has also been reported that Malwarebytes is currently profitable.

    The company's shares are trading at an estimated value of $675M. Given the revenue growth, profitability and a large potential market, we expect the company to be worth more than $3B after an IPO. The potential return on investment may reach 200%. Estimated IPO date - 2020.

    How Venture Investments Work
    1. Searching for Companies

    United Traders analysts are in continuous search for OTC offers studying financial reporting, companies’ businesses, their future plans, analyzing them as potential acquisition targets or estimating prospective multifold capitalization increase as well as considering risks that may hinder business growth. The best ideas are offered to our investors.

    3. Public Offering

    United Traders will have shares at its disposal after the IPO. The shares can be sold after the established 6-month Lock-up period. Alternatively, the shares can be hedged for the above period. Prior to the company going public United Traders look for exit options in the OTC market. If we find a great offer, we sell the shares.

    4. Taking profit

    After the Lock-up period is over, the investment position will be automatically closed, and generated profits are credited to your account less the applicable UT fees. We offer an opportunity for investors with over $100,000 invested in a specific idea to search for a counterpart in the OTC market individually and to take profits before the company goes public and thereby exiting the trade prior to the Lock-up period expiration.

    Exit
    ̴ 2020
    Early Exit

    Although it is prohibited to sell shares within the Lock-Up period, our traders find ways to take profits for our investors using various financial instruments: forwards, options, short selling trades, etc.

    For an investor the above means that the investment may be exited after paying a portion of its value, usually around 15% which is caused by highly-priced instruments used to close the position. To do so, you should press the respective button in your members area as soon as it becomes active.

    The exiting process is similar to making a new investment. You submit a request, we execute it within 1 business day, and your investment is closed at the current exchange price.

    Fees

    ENTRY FEE

    3.5% of the share purchase amount. The fee is charged at confirmation of your investment bid.

    EXIT FEE

    0.5% of the share sell amount after the trade. The fee is charged at the investment exit.

    SUCCESS FEE

    20% of the profit gain. The fee is charged only if the trade is profitable at the time of exiting.

    EARLY EXIT FEE

    Usually a 15% fee is charged subject to the actual situation at the exchange. The fee is calculated individually for each investment.

    What Are the Benefits of Investing with United Traders?

    WE ARE A RELIABLE PARTNER

    Our risk managers will support you throughout the entire transaction life. You can also contact us by phone: +7 495 646-15-57 or 8 800 333-66-81, or visit our office for a detailed discussion.

    HIGH PROFITABILITY

    Venture investing is very risky as they involve new or growing companies, and multifold increase in capitalization is expected. We select companies that already demonstrate strong financials and plan to go public soon. This approach allows limiting hyper-risks related to insolvency of new companies and substantially increasing profits as compared to investors who buy shares in a pre-IPO subscription.

    LOW ENTRY THRESHOLD

    To qualify for a pre-IPO subscription, one would need millions of dollars. We gathered a pool of traders and investors allowing everyone interested to join similar transactions with as much as $15,000.
