US IPO Week Ahead: Quiet August wraps with holdover biotech Adlai Nortye, as big deals prep September IPOs

August 25, 2023
Week Ahead

Just one IPO is currently scheduled to list in the week ahead, the final week of the IPO market’s annual August pause. A few small issuers may also join the calendar during the week.

Look out for new filings in the week ahead, as more companies prepare for post-Labor Day launches. The fall IPO pipeline grew this past week, with notable filings from chip designer Arm (ARM), grocery delivery unicorn Instacart (CART), Vietnamese gaming platform VNG (VNG), oncology biotech RayzeBio (RYZB), digital marketing platform Klaviyo (KVYO), and brain disease biotech Neumora Therapeutics (NMRA). Arm is eligible to launch its roadshow post-Labor Day, with Instacart and Klaviyo eligible to launch the following week.

Holdover oncology biotech Adlai Nortye (ANL) again 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.
