Aiming at raising $1.3 billion 

New York based automation services provider UiPath Inc. has boosted their initial public offering (IPO) price range in New York, hence boosting the company’s expected value to about $28 billion when it hits the market this week. The automation tech startup is targeting at setting a stage for yet another high-profile tech listing this year. 

The automation software maker and its existing shareholders are seeking to raise as much as $1.3 billion in the US IPO after upsizing the targeted price range. 

UiPath’s stock shares 


UiPath Inc. and its backers are now offering 23.9 million shares at a much narrower price scale of $52 to $54 per share. Previously, it was marketing a sale of 23.1 million shares at $43 to $50 apiece, while targeting to seek as much as $1.1 billion. The escalation accounts to 21% jump from the lower end of its initial range and an 8% gain on the upper end. 

Furthermore, UiPath officials confirmed that the company will also be selling more shares than before, hinting at a larger total valuation at the top end that the 8% gain suggests, while planning to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “PATH”. 

UiPath’s planned debut eventuated amidst a flurry of major tech listings from Silicon Valley, as several startups looked for capitalization on the sky-high investor demand for new, high-growth tech stocks. The company is looking forward to profiting up to $508 million from the IPO, excluding proceeds from shares offered by the selling stockholders.
