Palantir is a private software developer specializing in big data analysis. Its key clients include
intelligence services, investment banks, and hedge funds.
The company was founded in 2003 by former PayPal employees including PayPal’s founder Peter Thiel whose fund invested USD 30 mln in the first-round funding along with In-Q-Tel (USD 2 mln) founded by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
Palantir has developed software tools enabling ordinary users to visualize data from several databases and easily find answers to complex questions. In addition, technology experts have all necessary tools for an in-depth examination of data.
Since 2013 Palantir has acquired a few companies: Kimono Labs that develops a method for turning websites into structured API interfaces from a browser in mere seconds; Propeller that develops a web platform for quick creation and update of applications using an intuitive drag-and-drop interface; Poptip that develops a platform for analyzing conversations enabling mass media to fully understand public opinion in real-time and quickly act upon it.
Palantir is gradually diversifying its business by increasing the share of orders from the corporate sector; according to the most recent data, the share of government-related contracts has declined to 20%.
Palantir uses a “full integration” approach in its communication with corporate clients: company’s
engineers are implanted at client’s offices for a period of six or more months. This way a standard
business contract with a customer stretches for five to ten years. The above approach and the number
of pre-orders make Palantir an industry leader with a huge potential for growth.
As a result of fostering relationships with clients new products arise. Licenses for such products are also in great demand.
Palantir is developing a product for Airbus, which may help the company save around USD 40 mln in future. The software under development will enable Airbus engineers responding to manufacturing issues more efficiently and improving processes faster.
Industry forecasts for big data software and analysis tools estimate the US market at USD 98.6 billion in 2019 and the global market at USD 187 billion, a 50%+ growth since 2015 according to IDC market data. These estimates underline the strong demand and growth potential for big data analytical tools and services.
According to the discounted cash flow method, a USD 20 billion capitalization looks fairly justified and the current growth of pre-orders is likely to drive Palantir’s capitalization up to USD 30-40 billion after the IPO.
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.
As part of our service for purchasing shares on the over-the-counter market (pre-IPO, OTC), 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.
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.
After the Lock-up period is over, the investment in pre-IPO or OTC 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.
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 pre-IPO or OTC investment may be exited after paying a part 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.
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.
WE ARE A RELIABLE PARTNER
Our risk managers will support you throughout the entire transaction life.
Venture investing is very risky as they involve new or growing companies, and multifold increase in capitalization is expected. We prioritize companies at the pre-IPO stage as they already demonstrate strong financial indicators 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 through a subscription just before the IPO.
LOW ENTRY THRESHOLD
To buy the OTC stocks, 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 $10.
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.
