The corrected release reads:
UIPATH RAISES $225 MILLION SERIES C, LED BY CAPITALG AND SEQUOIA
From $1M to $100M in annual recurring revenue in less than 21 months, the company is likely to be the fastest-growing enterprise software company in history
UiPath deepens its commitment to accelerate real Artificial Intelligence (AI) outcomes through Robotic Process Automation (RPA) for organizations of all sizes
UiPath, the leading enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software company, has closed its Series C funding of $225 million at a valuation of $3 billion. The round was co-led by existing investor CapitalG and new investor Sequoia Capital. Accel, which led both UiPath Series A and B rounds, also participated in this round.
UiPath is likely to be the fastest growing enterprise software company in history. The company announced in early July that it had increased its annual recurring revenue from $1M to $100M – a feat it believes no other enterprise subscription software business has accomplished in such a short time. UiPath counts more than 1,800 global customers and is adding six new enterprise customers per day; the company expects annual recurring revenue at the end of 2018 to increase by more than four times compared to the end of 2017. The company also projects that it will end 2018 with more than 1,700 employees, a three-fold increase in 12 months, with operations in 30 offices across 16 countries.
“We are enabling a future where employees at every organization are empowered to automate tedious and time-consuming work, enabling them to focus on creative, challenging problems,” said Daniel Dines, co-founder and CEO of UiPath. “We are delighted by the strong support of our customers, partners and investors toward making this future of automation a reality. UiPath is driven by the incredible potential for our platform to be the gateway to transform our customers’ digital business operations with machine learning and AI.”
UiPath is the most widely adopted enterprise RPA platform, enabling the rapid design and deployment of software robots, or “digital workers.” The company was named a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Robotic Process Automation, Q2 2018, achieving the highest score in the “Current Offering” category and the highest possible score in “Market Presence.”
The company plans to use the additional funding to support its accelerated product development ambitions, deepen its ecosystem of partnerships to deliver complementary AI-enabled solutions, broaden the role of RPA in enterprise process automation initiatives and invest in M&A opportunities. Democratizing RPA remains a top priority for UiPath, which continues to invest in free UiPath Academy training programs, a Community Edition to enable free RPA access and a Community Forum to connect developers, customers and partners alike to accelerate the adoption of digital-era skills.
The company has raised over $400 million from tier one investors, including Accel, CapitalG, Credo Ventures, Earlybird’s Digital East Fund, Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers, Seedcamp and now Sequoia. UiPath raised its Series A in April 2017 with 200 customers at a valuation of $140 million. It raised another $153 million in March 2018 at a valuation of $1.1 billion.

Carl Eschenbach, Partner, Sequoia
“Every company is looking to drive a digital transformation of their back-end systems, and UiPath is solving that pain point through AI-powered automation. Daniel and his team have built a technology platform that will drive efficiencies and deliver tangible ROI for businesses. We are thrilled to partner with UiPath to help accelerate their already impressive growth.”

GSMA Debunks False Claims Threatening Future of 5G17.6.2019 11:04:00 CEST | Pressemelding
The GSMA today hit out against false claims that 5G systems will harm other services, such as weather forecasting. The mobile industry has already demonstrated within leading international standards bodies that 5G can be used safely alongside other services, including weather sensing services, commercial satellite, radar and other applications using adjacent airwaves. The GSMA is confident that 5G services and weather sensing services can co-exist, and warns against giving credence to those claiming a negative impact from 5G networks on weather forecasting data. “5G and weather forecasts can and will co-exist – it’s ludicrous to suggest otherwise,” said Brett Tarnutzer, Head of Spectrum, GSMA. “To suggest that our 7-day forecast will go away with 5G is simply fake news. We cannot allow these scare tactics to prevent us from reaping the huge societal and economic benefits of 5G networks. We urge everyone to simply look at the facts and not get drawn in by misleading rhetoric.” The fact

Norsk Titanium & QuesTek Test Additive Titanium Alloy17.6.2019 10:00:00 CEST | Pressemelding
Building upon the collaboration announced at Farnborough in July 2018, Norsk Titanium (Norsk) has successfully printed QuesTek’s custom titanium wire in support of initial material properties testing. QuesTek thoroughly evaluated the microstructure and measured the properties in several heat-treated conditions including various combinations of stress relief and solution treatment. Superior performance versus Ti-6-4 has been demonstrated. The highest performance condition was a basic one-hour solution treatment where an average Ultimate Tensile Strength (UTS) of 147 ksi and an average elongation of 18% was measured. This represents an increase in both strength and elongation, while maintaining fatigue performance, over standard Ti-6Al-4V. “QuesTek’s high-performance titanium alloy provides an opportunity for Norsk’s customers to optimize components printed with Norsk Titanium’s RPD™ process and opens doors for new applications,” said Norsk Chief Technology Officer Carl Johnson.
