Sumary of Darktrace’s astonishing rise makes City forecasters look sillier than usual | Nils Pratley:

  • The Cambridge-based cyber security firm floated in April at 250p.
  • It seems bizarre that investors would associate a tech company that uses artificial intelligence to spot cyber abnormalities (Darktrace) with one that runs software to organise couriers on bicycles (Deliveroo), but sometimes the City is gloriously unsophisticated.
  • But the traditional IPO process, overseen by superbly paid City advisers supposedly practised in the fine art of judging investor demand, looks even sillier than usual.
  • Not all buyouts are equal, chancellorStill Rishi Sunak will be delighted if Darktrace also shows that the UK market is not populated by luddite investors.
  • But Sunak was addressing a different question earlier this week when he was asked about private equity’s buying spree for UK listed companies.
