US IPO Week Ahead: PE and HR come to market in a 2 IPO week

January 7, 2022
Week Ahead

Private equity and outsourced human resources are coming to the IPO market in the week ahead, with two IPOs slated to raise a combined $1.2 billion.

TPG (TPG) plans to raise $1.0 billion at a $9.3 billion market cap. TPG is among the top five global private equity firms by capital raised from 2015 to 2020, ending the most recent quarter with $109 billion in AUM across 17 active products. Its investing approach is focused around five platforms: Capital, Growth, Impact, Real Estate, and Market Solutions. A majority of the firm’s assets are illiquid and require fair value estimates, which could result in losses.

Justworks (JW) plans to raise $214 million at a $2.2 billion market cap. The founder-led company provides an outsourced human resources platform to over 8,000 small and medium-sized businesses. Its customer base is concentrated geographically, with over half of its worksite employees located in New York. Justworks has an established track record of growth and recently became profitable.
