Palantir is a highly successful company. How long can they stay private for though?
So some things to consider:
‘Silicon Valley’s sudden distaste for the I.P.O. — rooted in part in Wall Street’s skepticism of new tech stocks — may be the single most important psychological shift underlying the current tech boom’
‘It also means Wall Street is doing what it failed to do in the last tech boom: using traditional metrics like growth and profitability to price companies’
Twitter, Box and more companies are suffering now as they struggle to find profitability.
And this is what a Google Search revealed:
So the answer is - quite easily. With the nature of what the company does:
‘Ten years ago, we set out to create products that would transform the way organizations use their data. Today, our products are deployed at the most critical government, commercial, and non-profit institutions in the world to solve problems we hadn’t even dreamed of back then.’
From the company homepage. And having raised $880 million privately; I think the real question is - will they even need to go Public?
