Sarah, I too bought these through Youinvest and 3i, got 5427 shares in each. Have been charged £29.95 commission by Youinvest, but nothing with 3i. I too will query the charge, let me know how you get on?

Sarah - this is in the prospectus (page 108, or pdf p114): Intermediaries may charge retail investors a fee for buying or holding the allocated Ordinary Shares for them (including any fees relating to the opening of an individual savings account or a self-invested personal pension for that purpose) provided that the Intermediary has disclosed the fees and terms and conditions of providing those services to the retail investor prior to the underlying application being made I'd take this up with them and quote from the prospectus! You were probably scaled down to 64.7% of what you wanted?

Question to anyone.. I applied for these through Youinvest (AJBELL) and looks like I have been scaled down to 1411 shares. However, AJBell have charged me a £29.95 commission - when in their email states no commission payable, as per usual IPO. Any one else in same boat?... especially as normal commission only £9.95

Not had chance to read it yet, but there's a 2 page article in this week's Shares Mag re: 'Apax-backed' Sophos, which is expected to go straight into the FTSE 250, apparently...

Shauney - yes, I understand Apax Partners are one of the owners, and this PE Fund has a stake in Apax Partners. I was told Sophos would be institutions only, including US ones, and that there would be "a fight for stock".

Thanks jonwig. I take it Apax are the same as the company behind software security company Sophos who are due to float on the main market in July.

Not really surprised, considering the discount offered: "TD Direct Investing has allocated shares on a pro-rata basis across all customer applications in line with the allocation it received from Apax Global Alpha Limited. Customers will receive approximately 64.7% of the amount applied for, rounded down to the nearest whole share" But ... they could have closed it early instead! Offer price is approx. 119.2p.

Sophos ItF: http://www.investegate.co.uk/sophos-ltd/rns/intention-to-float/201506030700300428P/ I've been waiting for this for some time, but PIs may not be able to apply. However, Apax should be big winners! Comment: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/df5f8170-09c5-11e5-b6bd-00144feabdc0.html#axzz3c0RXyoKi

Thanks jonwig. Yeah, seems very fair to offer at a discount to NAV and then to also set the dividend against NAV too (rather than the issue price, as most IPO's seem to do). They look to have a decent track record in diversified investments and I'm reassured to see that Witan Investment Trust have committed to a 4% stake. An initial yield of around 5.7% is also a nice starting point, which hopefully will grow over time. I've applied for some this afternoon via selftrade.

Thanks for that, Wirral. I'm applying for both myself and Mrs jw. The issue discount is attractive, and the quoted historic performance is after charges. Could close early - look out for RNS!

Thanks for starting the thread, jonwig. Looks an interesting alternative to the usual.. Taken from ii: Private equity IPO offers big returns By Lee Wild | Fri, 22nd May 2015 - 11:29 Share this Private equity IPO offers big returns Getting access to successful private equity houses has not been straightforward for your average investor. But Apax Partners, one of Europe's biggest private equity firms, is listing an investment vehicle on London's main market next month, and forecast shareholder returns look attractive. Apax is using the float to list PCV, a vehicle set up in 2008 for certain partners and employees. At the end of March, investments in four Apax private equity funds, debt and equities were worth €611.1 million (£437 million). Raising the required €250 million from the IPO on 15 June shouldn't be difficult. Investors have been offered shares at a 13% discount to net asset value (NAV), and Apax already has €135 million of commitments from cornerstone investors. No wonder, PCV's portfolio has grown 40% from €437 million at the end of 2012, outperforming broader market indices by around 18% a year and delivering an annual internal rate of return (IRR) of about 30%. Apax staff will be locked in for six years, and pre-IPO shareholders one year, with a staggered release of 20% per year. "The vehicle presents a unique opportunity for stock market investors to benefit from exposure to Apax's excellent investment track record, in addition to the attractive investment opportunities that Apax has identified in asset classes that are not accessible to a traditional buyout fund," explains Apax Global Alpha chairman Tim Breedon, who ran Legal & General until 2012 and is currently a non-exec at Barclays. With a mix of capital appreciation from its investment portfolio - mainly technology & telecoms, services, healthcare and consumer companies - and regular dividends, Apax is targeting an annualised total shareholder return, across economic cycles, of 12%-15% after fees and expenses. That includes a dividend yield of 5% of NAV once fully invested. "Private equity investments have historically outperformed the public markets across cycles," says Ralf Gruss, partner at Apax Partners. "We have been witnessing an attractive deal flow recently, and believe the fundraising will allow us to capture high alpha opportunities for Apax Global Alpha."

Target yield is 5% of NAV, TSR 12-15% pa. "The shares are offered at a 13% discount to 31 March 2015 NAV as adjusted for certain pre-IPO and other expenses." Therefore initial yield would be 5.75% on offer price. Target is 50% PE (initially 43%) and 50% (initially 57%) cash, corporate debt, quoted equities. Closing on or before 9 June, first dealings 15 June. Offer price sterling spot equivalent of €1.6390. Fees are 1.25% of assets and a 20% performance fee if earned. (!!)
