US IPO Week Ahead: A light IPO calendar with the August slowdown in full effect

August 5, 2022
Week Ahead

The IPO market remains quiet during the annual August slowdown with just one IPO scheduled to price in the week ahead. Other small deals may also join the calendar during the week.

Electric boat developer Forza X1 (FRZA) plans to raise $15 million at a $50 million market cap. Spun out of Twin Vee PowerCats, the company aims to manufacture and sell affordable electric boats for recreational sport use. Forza X1 expects to start producing and selling their initial FX1 dual console and FX1 center console models in the 2Q23.

We may see other small deals manage to price offerings as well, such as Onfolio (ONFO), bioAffinity Technologies (BIAF), and Loop Media (LPTV).
