December 8, 2023
Week Ahead

Updated Monday, 12/11.

One foreign issuer is currently scheduled to price a US IPO in the week ahead, though some small deals may join the calendar late.

China-based ZKH Group (ZKH) plans to raise $66 million at a $2.8 billion market cap. The company provides MRO (materials for maintenance, repair, and operations) procurement services through two platforms, ZKH platform and GBB platform. ZKH Group served over 64,000 customers in the 12 months ended 9/30/23, with product offerings spanning 17.2 million SKUs and all major MRO product lines. The company is unprofitable, and growth slowed in the 9mo23.

While not included below, steel framing manufacturer INNO HOLDINGS (INHD) is scheduled to begin trading in the coming week. The company raised $10 million this past week, but unlike most US IPOs, it did not begin trading the day after pricing.
