IPO doesn't decide how shareholders dispose of their shares. Without any other info, it looks like the 70m shares invesco dumped (probably to cover payments for individuals who are withdrawing from invesco funds) were just absorbed by the market - individuals as well as probably institutions. What is very positive is that 70m can hit the market these days without altering the generally rising share price (which itself is rising due to being hit hard by institutional dumping several months ago when there were less buyers around). We're still rising. It's still way undervalued imv, the discount to nav is far too high even now, let alone on the revaluation for many stocks declared at the next results. We are basically running forwards pretty fast and yet standing still as the assets are revalued. If ipo's board have any concern for their shareholders, then some of the mega and excessive cash pile should be returned to them. A dividend and intention of more would add 25% to the price imv, in addition to the rise correcting the nav discount. I'd like to see their intention of what they'll do with the hundreds of mill they'll get on a nano float.

Does anyone know what has happened to the 7% of IPO that Invesco has sold?. Invesco was IPO's second biggest shareholder, and there is no sign that any of IPO's other major shareholders have used the disposal to increase their stakes. It would have been a real sign of confidence in the company if the shares had been placed with another long-term strategic shareholder, such as the Railways Pension Fund or Baillie Gifford. Surely it would have been in IPO's interests to make sure that the shares were placed safely with long-term investors rather than just dumped on the market.

Wet, The article you posted is now getting reported more widely. There has been a gradual improvement in accuracy over the past few years, but this looks like a major step forward. Https://phys.org/news/2021-01-method-pocket-sized-dna-sequencer-near-perfect.html Researchers have found a simple way to eliminate almost all sequencing errors produced by a widely used portable DNA sequencer, potentially enabling scientists working outside the lab to study and track microorganisms like the SARS-CoV-2 virus more efficiently. Using special molecular tags, the team was able to reduce the five-to-15 percent error rate of Oxford Nanopore Technologies' MinION device to less than 0.005 percent—even when sequencing many long stretches of DNA at a time. "The MinION has revolutionized the field of genomics by freeing DNA sequencing from the confines of large laboratories," says Ryan Ziels, an assistant professor of civil engineering at the University of British Columbia and the co-lead author of the study, which was published this week in Nature Methods. "But until now, researchers haven't been able to rely on the device in many settings because of its fairly high out-of-the-box error rate." Genome sequences can reveal a great deal about an organism, including its identity, its ancestry and its strengths and vulnerabilities. Scientists use this information to better understand the microbes living in a particular environment, as well as to develop diagnostic tools and treatments. But without accurate portable DNA sequencers, crucial genetic details could be missed when research is conducted out in the field or in smaller laboratories. So Ziels and his collaborators at Aalborg University created a unique barcoding system that can make long-read DNA sequencing platforms like the MinION over 1000 times more accurate. After tagging the target molecules with these barcodes, researchers proceed as they usually would—amplifying, or making multiple copies of, the tagged molecules using the standard PCR technique and sequencing the resulting DNA. The researchers can then use the barcodes to easily identify and group relevant DNA fragments in the sequencing data, ultimately producing near-perfect sequences from fragments that are up to 10 times longer than conventional technologies can process. Longer stretches of DNA allow the detection of even slight genetic variations and the assembly of genomes in high resolution. "A beautiful thing about this method is that it is applicable to any gene of interest that can be amplified," says Ziels, whose team has made the code and protocol for processing the sequencing data available through open-source repositories. "This means that it can be very useful in any field where the combination of high-accuracy and long-range genomic information is valuable, such as cancer research, plant research, human genetics and microbiome science." Ziels is currently collaborating with Metro Vancouver to develop an expanded version of the method that permits the near-real-time detection of microorganisms in water and wastewater. With an accurate picture of the microorganisms present in their water systems, says Ziels, communities may be able to improve their public health strategies and treatment technologies—and better control the spread of harmful microorganisms like SARS-CoV-2.

Interesting to try some comparisons with other manufacturers. Oxford Nanopore [ONT] Value $2.3B order value $125m [Figs from 06/2020] [note, excludes the £115m order in Autumn from UK Govt] Illumina [ILMN] mcap $52.7B t/o $3,546m Pacbio [PACB] mcap $6.22B t/o $90m Let me know if there are more up to date figures, or a better way to compare ONT, ILMN, and PACB

Oxford Nanopore and Nvidia collaborate to partner the DGX AI compute system with ultra-high throughput PromethION sequencer Tue 12th January 2021 PromethION Oxford Nanopore Technologies and Nvidia are collaborating this year to integrate the NVIDIA DGX Station A100 into Oxford Nanopore’s ultra-high throughput sequencing system, PromethION. Partnering the NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU technology with the PromethION device aims to deliver the world’s most powerful sequencer that supports real-time analyses at scale, and can also analyse any length fragment of DNA/RNA. The use of accelerated computing and artificial intelligence to quickly and accurately sequence DNA or RNA supports the increasing availability of nanopore sequencing data, at scale, to a variety of high-throughput users. Oxford Nanopore’s technology is increasingly being used by scientific researchers analysing many thousands of genomes to better understand genetic diversity and discover new variants. Sequencing is also being increasingly adopted to generate rapid insights in healthcare settings, food safety, or environmental analysis. NVIDIA DGS Station A100, announced in November, is a data-center-grade, GPU-powered, multi-user workgroup appliance that can tackle the most complex AI workloads. It plugs directly into an outlet in an office or laboratory, and is very quiet thanks to its refrigerant-based cooling system. It contains four NVIDIA A100 80GB GPUs, fully connected via NVIDIA NVLink, to offer a total of 320GB of GPU memory. Unprecedented analytical power for ultra-high throughput sequencing The 2.5 petaFLOP AI compute system from Nvidia offers unprecedented compute density, performance and flexibility in a benchtop format. Oxford Nanopore’s PromethION P48 sequencing device continues to challenge even the most powerful devices with its ability to generate as much as 10 Terabases of DNA information per 72-hour run (sufficient to analyse 96 human genomes at 30X coverage). Breaking through the 10 Terabase run barrier was announced by Oxford Nanopore at the Community meeting in December 2020 and represents a 25% increase in data output compared to its previous best earlier in the same year. This increase has been driven by continual improvements in flow cell chemistry, many of which were included in new shipments from mid-November 2020. These developments have been reflected in customer data, with increasing yields reported across a range of sequencing applications. Supplied in a P24 and a P48 format, PromethION is increasingly being deployed into high-throughput projects, where the rich sequencing data provided by Oxford Nanopore can be delivered at very high throughput. As with all Oxford Nanopore devices, the technology enables academic groups, core facilities and service providers to realise the value of sequencing any length fragments, from short fragments to those that are over 100,000 bases long, and to characterise base modifications, coupled with high accuracy single nucleotide or structural variant calling and phasing. NVIDIA GPUs are already used in other Oxford Nanopore sequencing systems, driving real-time sequencing analysis at any scale. The desktop GridION includes NVIDIA V100 technology and the handheld MinION Mk1C sequencer is powered by the NVIDIA Jetson Edge AI platform. AI, training and algorithm development as a driver of high accuracy sequence data The use of powerful AI systems is also driving substantial improvements in the accuracy of Oxford Nanopore’s sequencing data; updated analysis algorithms can result in higher accuracy of the same sequence data. Oxford Nanopore recently released a new machine-learning driven analysis algorithm, Bonito CRF, with which users have reported >98% single read basecalling accuracy. Basecalling is the process of identifying the sequence of bases on an individual molecule of DNA. This latest update to Bonito builds on previous work to deliver improved performance, and is trained with a larger, more diverse data set. High single read accuracy supports very high consensus accuracy (sequencing multiple times for higher accuracy); optimised analysis tools including Guppy/Bonito basecalling, assembly with Canu/Flye and polishing with Medaka, can now enable Q45 with R9.4.1 flow cells and Q50 with R10.3 flow cells. Variant calling performance is also improving with the latest releases. Using the latest tools, structural variation (SV) accuracy has reached gold standard of 96% with 30X rather than 60X coverage. Oxford Nanopore has now seen SNV at 99.92%, which is comparable to traditional SBS accuracy. In addition, in late 2020 Oxford Nanopore generated modal single-read accuracy of 99.1% (99%=Q20) using a new chemistry with Bonito, delivered on internal validation sets, with a substantial proportion of these raw reads above Q20. Oxford Nanopore and Nvidia are working closely to deploy the latest advancements in AI, with the goal of making biological analysis available to anyone, anywhere. Further info: Over the coming weeks, Oxford Nanopore will be providing its user base with updates on how the integration work is proceeding on PromethION compute as well as other potential device enhancements. As with other programmes, we plan to provide seamless upgrade paths to Oxford Nanopore users.

Mas, the days of this trading at NAV or even a premium are long gone, however, the discount still looks far too wide. I guess around 10% would be more realistic. Essentially we now just have to wait to see what the Lansdowne lot plant to do with the remainder of their holding [under 5%], until we see the end of the forced sellers. It's evident from the news at the weekend, that it does appear that Invesco are out. Do you know if we should be expecting a last holdings rns from them to confirm?

I have done a few basic calcs allowing for disposals [eg CWR] and improvements in constituents individual valuations [eg ONT] and think we could see IPGroup NAV increase from from £1.2bn to around 1.35-1.4bn. Add in the cash at approx £300m and we can see there is still a sizeable discount on offer here.

p1nk, yes could be. They have obviously been supplying the market with shares since the advent of problems with Woodford and subsequent redemptions. As you know this all started with WIM which then fed into valuations at Invesco and Lansdowne. I would guess its possible that the supply of Invesco shares would have become unavailable to the market for a few days while the placing was put together, and the usual level of buying created a squeeze. Either by design or by chance!

Mas, Sharecast reporting this... "IP Group slid on Thursday after Invesco sold 61.9m shares in the company in a placing. The shares were sold at 100.5p each, according to traders, which was the lower end of the initial guidance of between 100.5p and 103p and a discount of around 9.5% to the closing share price on Wednesday. JPMorgan was the bookrunner." Guess the buyer/s knew they had Invesco over a barrel!

Mas, Thanks. If Invesco has dumped the last of them, that has to be a good thing. The fact that they didn't have time to sell them in a more orderly way means they might have a more desperate situation with redemptions than we know. Assume a large trade would be delayed in publication.
