@msawi11 I saw the article you posted... but you have to ask yourself one question. Do you want a company who just acquire a company to gain ground in the space or a company that specializes in the space? Another easier way to put this because I am in IT. Do you want someone who just entered the network space to work on your core switches or someone like myself who has 16 years of experience to work on your core switches? To me.... this is a simple response!

@Gurumentality fair but MSFT already had an RPA business unit for sometime to which it added Softmotive...experienced and not a new entrant, right? Back to my point, Novell Networks, first mover and long time networking company, had their business ultimately crushed/pnwd by which company? Microsoft, a later entrant.

@msawi11 This is very true but Microsoft also had a monopoly which made the biggest difference. I worked on Novell products and they weren't that user friendly either. For that reason....Microsoft is awesome! I am still a Cisco guy though.... Juniper, Aruba, or HP won't stop Cisco.
priced at 43-50$ what do you think will it be priced at given the stock market high !

@manuvns I believe it will open at at least $65, wouldn't be surprise if it opened at as high as $80. The nasdaq tries to drive the price as high as they can get it before it opens. Don't forget it is a unicorn so it's a high dollar stake.
@Gurumentality thanks! will trade it's options if i do not get it in IPO .
What is their actual moat and competitive advantages against the rest of the competitors?

The industry CAGR is on the low side, considering how many other secular trends are taking place right now: edge computing, OTT, etc

@jims11 Call me crazy, but I don't see any defensible moat for anyone in this space.

FWIW, TDA is participating in the IPO...

Issue: UIPATH INC Expected offer date: 04/20/2021
Symbol: PATH Offering amount: $989,616,766
Type: IPO Price range/price as filed: $43.00 - $50.00

@rt94103 I believe UIPath will be the first to go public and therefore people will buy at a premium like for Airbnb. I see this going up to a $100 to start easy. Also I believe the offer date will be 4/21/21, you don't see many mainstream IPO's come out on a Tuesday. It will price Tuesday for sure before hitting the open market.

@Gurumentality A hundy?!!! I guess it's worth asking for an allocation at TD, we do have significant funds with them. That 4/20 is the date for an allocation at the pricing of the offer, hence the first trade on the market on Wed. 4/21 as you mention should be correct.
Romanian company! Well done boys! Proud to be Romanian!
@deeptrade same here! And happy to see Ro fellows in SA.
I will certainly be following UiPath as it grows further. Technicals aside, the company also has a rather beautiful story behind it - from small beginnings all the way in Romania. Mr Dines has apparently become the wealthiest person in that country of 19 million.
