Can Demandware demand IPO returns?
Demandware, which provides on-demand software to help businesses design and maintain e-commerce sites, announced terms for its IPO on Thursday. The Burlington, MA-based company plans to raise $74 million by offering 5.5 million shares at a price range of $12.50 to $14.50. At the midpoint of the proposed range, Demandware would command a market value of $425 million. Demandware, which was founded in 2004, plans to list on the NYSE under the symbol DWRE. Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank Securities are the lead underwriters on the deal. Demandware is one of three deals on the

Demandware sells its on-demand software on a subscription model, with an average three-year contract, and shares in the revenue processed on the platform. As of December 31, 2011, 101 customers were operating 361 sites, which include websites, mobile apps and other digital storefronts.

As stated in the Prospectus, the total annual operating expenses for the Fund was 3.48%. The Adviser has contractually agreed to keep net expenses from exceeding 2.50% of the Fund’s average daily net assets for at least a year from the date of the Prospectus and for an indefinite period thereafter subject to annual re-approval of the agreement by the Board of Trustees.

Investments in the
Renaissance IPO ETF, symbol "IPO"
Renaissance International IPO ETF, symbol "IPOS"
(the “ETFs”), and the
Global IPO Fund, symbol "IPOSX"
(the “Mutual Fund”) are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of the principal amounts invested. The ETFs and the Mutual Fund (the “Funds”) invest in companies that have recently completed initial public offerings. These stocks are unseasoned equities lacking trading history, a track record of reporting to investors and widely available research coverage which many result in extreme price volatility. Due to a greater number of IPOs in certain segments, the Funds may also be subject to information technology and financial sector risk, small and mid-capitalization company risk, and, for the Renaissance International IPO ETF, emerging markets risk. The Funds may hold securities in the form of Depository Receipts, REITs, and Partnership Units which have greater risks than common shares. The strategies have high portfolio turnover and securities lending risks. The returns of the ETFs may not match the return of the respective indices. The ETFs are classified as non-diversified investment companies subject to concentration risk.
