US IPO Week Ahead: No IPOs in the short holiday week

May 27, 2022
Week Ahead

No IPOs are currently scheduled to price in the week ahead, although a few SPACs may join the calendar during the week.

While a wave of filings in mid-May typically sets up the calendar for post-Memorial Day launches, new filings have been quiet. Several large deals in the pipeline have updated recently (DSTY, CBRG, TURO, STWY), and mining billionaire Robert Friedland’s Ivanhoe Electric (IE) filed this past week to raise $200 million.

Street research is expected for three companies. For access to Street research and lock-up expiration dates, sign up for a free trial of IPO Pro.
