US IPO Week Ahead: Arm slated to join the IPO calendar

September 1, 2023
Week Ahead

One small deal is currently scheduled for the short week ahead, but all eyes are on Arm (ARM), which is expected to launch after Labor Day.

On file for an estimated $6 billion IPO, Arm is expected to join the calendar on Tuesday. The chip designer would be one of the largest tech IPOs of the past two decades, and could be the deal to finally break through the post-2021 tech logjam. Tech names and recent filers Instacart (CART) and Klaviyo (KVYO) are expected to follow as the IPO market gains steam through year-end.

The week’s sole scheduled deal, Gamer Pakistan (GPAK) plans to raise $8 million at a $115 million market cap. The pre-revenue company is initially focused on creating men's and women's college, inter-university, and professional esports events, particularly with colleges and universities in Pakistan.
