Cambridge’s world leading cyber security business Darktrace saw its UK share price and market capitalisation rocket today to cap a remarkable few weeks since IP0. The share price topped 450p and the market cap rose to £3.16 billion.
Darktrace only floated at the end of April when the opening share price was 250p, valuing the business at £1.7bn.
