The company, which is owned by Cavendish Square Partners, expects to be valued at £400m in the IPO and will receive proceeds of £200m from the stake sale.

Polypipe posted an EBITDA of £54m on revenues of just over £300m last year.

Two years later, Castle Harlan sold its investment in the company to the Bank of Scotland for a return of 4.5 times.
