US IPO Week Ahead: IPO filings heat up as August break nears end

August 20, 2021
Week Ahead

The IPO market is still on break. There are no IPOs currently scheduled for the week ahead. Despite the calendar being empty, we may see some SPACs join the calendar throughout the week. In anticipation of the post-Labor Day IPO rush, we expect filings to pour into the pipeline as the end of August comes into view.
