Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati represented Automation Anywhere, a global leader in Robotic Process Automation (RPA), in the company’s $290 million Series B financing at a post money valuation of $6.8 billion
The funding was led by Salesforce Ventures with additional funding from existing investors, Softbank Vision Fund, General Atlantic and Goldman Sachs.
The capital will help Automation Anywhere accelerate product development, expand its global reach, and advance intelligent automation with potential new acquisitions. Within the last year, Automation Anywhere announced its Series A investment of $550 million from SoftBank Vision Fund, General Atlantic, Goldman Sachs, NEA, World Innovation Lab, and Workday.

In addition to the investment from Salesforce Ventures, and the customer engagement opportunity, the company launched their Automation Anywhere Salesforce Connector on Salesforce AppExchange, the world’s leading enterprise cloud marketplace, bringing its market-leading intelligent automation platform to Salesforce global users through pre-built software bots.
