    Investment Idea Details
    About the company

    Exabeam is a leading provider of user and entity behavior analytics, based on security-based data science and innovative Stateful User Tracking technology.

    The company was built by security and enterprise IT veterans from Splunk (SPLK), Imperva, and Sumo Logic. Exabeam was founded in 2013 and is headquartered in San Mateo, California.

    Market Opportunities

    Global spending on information security products and services will reach $124 billion in 2019, research firm Gartner estimated in an August report.

    Exabeam continuously monitors the sources of companies’ log data to determine “normal” activity so it can spotlight unusual activities and allocate a risk score. The company was named as Highest Rated security information and event management (SIEM) provider based on customer reviews and ratings in Gartner’s 2018 Report.


    Exabeam competes in security information and event management (SIEM) industry and faces a strong competition from a number of firms, including its closest rival Splunk (SPLK). This may negatively affect its long-term viability and valuation.

    Financials and Valuation

    A number of cybersecurity companies compete in this field, including Splunk (SPLK), whose shares recently hit an all-time high of around $140 — up some 700% on its $17 IPO price in 2012. Current market cap of SPLK is around $18B.

    In February 2018 Rubrik disclosed that it was on track to reach an annual revenue run rate of $300 million thanks to rapid enterprise adoption of its products. In its last venture round in January 2019 Rubrik was valued at $3.3 Billion. Given rapid market expansion and support from major VC firms, the expected return on investment is more than 100%.

    Exabeam has raised a total of $190M from a number of top Silicon Valley VC firms, including Lightspeed Venture Partners (invested in Zscaler, Nutanix), Sapphire Ventures (invested in Livongo Health, Alteryx, Looker) and Norwest Venture Partners (invested in Health Catalyst, FireEye).

    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.

    2. Buying shares

    As part of our service for purchasing shares on the OTC market, for its traders and investors United Traders buys units in funds that own equity stakes in private companies. These funds make early-stage investments in private companies or acquire equity stakes from employees of such companies.

    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.

    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.



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


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


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


    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?


    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.


    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.


    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 $50.


    United Traders is experienced in minimizing risks but a future investor should be aware of all risk types:

    • Illiquidity. There is a possibility that early exit from this investment will take more than 1 month.
    • Asymmetric information. Management and current investors have access to more internal information about the company than other market participants.
    • Time uncertainty. There is no information regarding next financing round or exit strategy timeframe (IPO or M&A).
    • Share dilution. The issue of additional shares by a company may reduce the value of shares of existing investors.
