US IPO Week Ahead: Mineral exploration company plans first major US IPO in over a month

June 17, 2022
Week Ahead

After over a month with no major US IPOs, mineral exploration company Ivanhoe Electric (IE) is expected to break the dry spell in the week ahead.

Led by mining billionaire Robert Friedland, Ivanhoe Electric plans to raise $174 million at a $1.2 billion market cap in the short holiday week. Headquartered in Vancouver, the company is focused on developing mines from mineral deposits principally located in the US. Its mining projects are still in the exploration stage and are not expected to generate revenue for the foreseeable future. However, the company has generated revenue from ownership of an oil and gas-focused data processing firm and a battery developer.
