US IPO Week Ahead: The IPO calendar returns to small deals

September 16, 2022
Week Ahead

Following the year's largest IPO to date (CRBG), four small deals may price in the week ahead, only two of which are large enough to be included in our IPO stats.

Neuro-inflammation biotech Jupiter Neurosciences (JUNS) plans to raise $15 million at a $62 million market cap. Jupiter's sole candidate, JOTROL, is being developed for various neuro and rare disease indications. JOTROL completed a Phase 1 safety and tolerability trial in March 2021 and is expected to commence Phase 2 trials in the 4Q22.

OTC-listed Loop Media (LPTV) plans to raise $12 million at a $298 million market cap. The company provides proprietary content streaming boxes to bars, hotels, and stores, through which it generates ad revenues. Fast growing and unprofitable, Loop has licenses with three major music labels.

While not counted below, two nano-caps may price in the week ahead. Infectious disease biotech Alopexx (ALPX) and laser-based system maker Laser Photonics (LASE) both plan to raise $15 million.
