Issue With IPOs

Over the past two game months on LU I have been taking my state corporations public. The first two waves have gone smoothly, and my CEO now owns 30% (120m) shares in each, with no IF interference.

However, I have noticed something slightly strange. The CEO funds used to buy the shares seem to have vanished - they are neither in the country nor in the corporations? Perhaps I am making a silly mistake (it has been a long day at work and I am still brushing off the cobwebs all over my game mechanic knowledge), but I would have thought either the corporation or majority shareholder (country) would receive any SC$ paid for shares?

Currently the overall cash level loss between my CEO/country is roughly 8-10T - fairly substantial for an empire that is only a few weeks old.

I would be grateful for any input. And yes, I have checked the corp cash levels and none exhibit any cash gain corresponding to the share sales.

Many thanks! (Chaos I on Little Upsilon)
