Week Ahead

Three IPOs are currently scheduled to list in the week ahead, although other small issuers may join the calendar during the week.

Tentatively scheduled for the week ahead, oncology biotech Adlai Nortye (ANL) plans to raise $72 million at an $896 million market cap. Operating through subsidiaries in the US and China, Adlai Nortye’s lead candidate (in-licensed from Novartis) is a kinase inhibitor designed to act against solid tumors that is currently undergoing a Phase 3 trial. The company expects to submit an NDA to the FDA seeking potential accelerated approval in the 2H24.

Sacks Parente Golf (SPGC) plans to raise $14 million at a $70 million market cap. Founded by experience golf equipment designers, Sacks Parente designs and sells golf putters, as well as shafts, grips, and head covers. Very small and highly unprofitable, the company opened a new manufacturing facility in Missouri in 2022, and intends to manufacture and assemble substantially all of its products in the US.

Nature Wood Group (NWGL), a Macau-based vertically-integrated forestry company with facilities in Peru, plans to raise $9 million at a $166 million market cap. The company produces a range of products, including logs, decking, flooring, and sawn timber. Nature Wood owns natural forest concessions and cutting rights for the exploitation of timbers in Peru, covering approximately 615,333 hectares.
