US IPO Week Ahead: IPO calendar quiets down after a relatively active week

November 11, 2022
Week Ahead

After a relatively active week for the IPO market, the calendar is expected to quiet down again. One small deal is scheduled to price, though it is too small to be included in our IPO stats. Biotech Acrivon Therapeutics (ACRV) may also price, after delaying its $100 million IPO.

Nano-cap BullFrog AI Holdings (BFAI) plans to raise $8 million at a $34 million market cap. The pre-revenue company is developing an analytical AI/ML platform for drug development.

With the IPO market well into the fourth quarter now, it's unlikely that activity will pick up before year-end, though another major IPO is not off the table: Large IPOs MN8 Energy (MNX), KinderCare (KLC), and Savers Value Village (SVV) all filed updates this past week.

Street research is expected for one company in the week ahead, and one lock-up period will be expiring. For access to Street research and lock-up expiration dates, sign up for a free trial of IPO Pro.
