There are a few deals on the calendar but the October IPO market is expected to remain largely frozen in the week ahead, save for one high-profile listing from Mobileye Global (MBLY).
Intel’s Mobileye plans to raise $779 million at a $15.4 billion market cap. The company is only floating 5% of its basic shares outstanding, well below the typical 15%, in light of current market conditions. Mobileye believes that it has pioneered advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) technology and launched its family of EyeQ chips in 2007. The company has delivered solid revenue growth and currently ships its ADAS solutions to 13 of the world’s 15 largest automakers, though it operates in a highly-regulated, highly-competitive environment.
Two holdovers are also expected to debut in the week ahead. Isotope enrichment company ASP Isotopes (ASPI) plans to raise $12 million at a $205 million market cap, and solid tumor biotech Intensity Therapeutics (INTS) plans to raise $10 million at an $82 million market cap.
