US IPO Week Ahead: IPO market starts with a quiet week as potential launches loom

March 28, 2024
Week Ahead

Updated Monday, 4/1.

The April IPO market is starting off with a fairly quiet calendar, with one large issuer scheduled for the week ahead. That could change, as several issuers are teed up for potential launches.

Potential calendar additions include one larger recent filer, skilled nursing care provider PACS Group (PACS). A few other sizable IPOs in the pipeline have provided updates in the past month, including hospital billing platform Waystar (WAY), Chinese luxury EV brand ZEEKR (ZK), air transportation services provider PHI Group (ROTR), car sharing platform Turo (TURO), and product assessment services provider UL Solutions (ULS).

Leading the week's IPOs, neuro and inflammation biotech Contineum Therapeutics (CTNM) plans to raise $150 million at a $490 million market cap. The company's lead asset, PIPE-791, is a small molecule inhibitor in development for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and progressive multiple sclerosis (Progressive MS), that has completed Phase 1 trials in both indications. Contineum is collaborating with Johnson & Johnson on its second candidate, which has entered a Phase 2 trial in relapse remitting MS.

Brain cancer biotech NeOnc Technologies Holdings (NTHI) may raise $75 million at a $315 million market cap. Its most advanced candidate, NEO100, is a purified form of perillyl acid which is administered to brain cancer patients via intranasal delivery. The company is currently conducting two Phase 2a trials of NEO100, and expects readouts by the end of 2024.

Holdover Mobile-health Network Solutions (MNDR) may raise $10 million at a $153 million market cap. Singapore-based telehealth company provides services through its MaNaDr platform, where users throughout the APAC region can access a range of telehealth solutions, comprising teleconsultation services and personalized services. The company also operates one brick-and-mortar GP clinic in Singapore.
