In its latest filing, the company also disclosed the number of Class A shares to be sold by existing shareholders and updated the sale price history of its stock. The company is holding an Investor Day today, September 9, at 10:00am.
The Registered Stockholders plan to sell up to 244 million Class A shares.
During the third quarter of 2020 (through September 1), roughly 36 million shares were sold in private secondary transactions at prices ranging from $4.17 to $11.50. If the company listed its shares at the $11.50 high end of the range, Palantir would command a fully diluted market value of $25.5 billion.
Unlike other direct listings, the company's executive officers, directors, and certain other shareholders have entered into lock-up agreements, set to expire the third trading day following the release of financial results for the FY20.
Palantir Technologies was founded in 2003 and booked $901 million in revenue for the 12 months ended June 30, 2020. It plans to list on the NYSE under the symbol PLTR. As a direct listing without a firm commitment offering, there are no underwriters on the deal; instead, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, Allen & Company, RBC Capital Markets, Citi, Jefferies, HSBC, SG Americas Securities, CIBC World Markets, Scotia Capital, and MUFG will serve as financial advisors.
