SAO PAULO (Reuters) – Brazilian brokerage firm XP Inc (O:) filed on Monday for a secondary share offering, saying its second-quarter profit is likely to double from a year earlier, according to a securities filing.
Private equity firm General Atlantic LLC e XP Controle Participacoes will sell 19,535,420 class A common shares in the offering, the broker said.

XP also said it is likely to post a second-quarter profit between 420 million reais and 520 million reais, up from 228 million reais a year ago, as net inflows from clients have accelerated.
