US IPO Week Ahead: 2024 gets its first large tech IPOs, with Reddit and Astera Labs set to debut

March 15, 2024
Week Ahead

The end of the first quarter is on the horizon, and the IPO calendar is starting to heat up, with the week ahead set to be led by the year’s first large tech IPOs.

Social media platform Reddit (RDDT) plans to raise $715 million at a $6.1 billion market cap. The platform has over 100k+ active interest-based “subreddits,” serving 76 million daily users. Reddit has delivered solid growth and shown potential for significant economies of scale. The company is still unprofitable, though, and average revenue per user declined in the most recent quarter.

Chipmaker Astera Labs (ALAB) plans to raise $507 million at a $5.0 billion market cap. Astera offers its Intelligent Connectivity Platform, which comprises semiconductor-based connectivity products and its software suite. Its products are built specifically for data center and AI infrastructure, positioning it well to benefit from future buildouts. The company has delivered strong growth, though its revenue is concentrated in its top three customers.

Peruvian healthcare company Auna (AUNA) plans to raise $420 million at a $1.0 billion market cap. Originally founded as a healthcare coverage provider, Auna now also operates 15 hospitals and 16 other facilities across Mexico, Peru, and Colombia. The company has successfully expanded its footprint, and its underpenetrated target markets allow room for continued growth. It will be highly leveraged post-IPO.

Hong Kong-based financial PR firm Intelligent Group (INTJ) plans to raise $9 million at a $60 million market cap. The firm provides services to clients during mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, and restructurings on a variety of complex business. Intelligent Group is small and saw revenue decline in the FY22.

Holdover CDT Environmental Technology Investment Holdings (CDTG) plans to raise $9 million at a $50 million market cap. The China-based company provides and operates sewage treatment systems, and it also provides sewage treatment services.

While not included below, holdover RanMarine Technology (RAN) plans to raise $8 million in a unit offering at a $61 million market cap. The Dutch company designs, manufactures, and sells aquatic drones focused on harvesting harmful plastic pollutants, algae, biomass, and oils from water, and collecting water quality data.
