US IPO Week Ahead: IPO market remains quiet in the short holiday week

November 18, 2022
Week Ahead

One small deal may price in the short Thanksgiving week, although other small deals may join the calendar last minute.

While the IPO market is expected to remain quiet in the week ahead, recent updates from several large issuers in the pipeline, as well as sizable new filings from insurer Skyward Specialty (SKWD) and oil and gas companies TXO Energy Partners (TXO) and BKV Corp (BKV), mean that we could still see a pickup after the holiday.

Lab-grown diamond producer Adamas One (JEWL) may price in the week ahead, planning to raise $34 million (56% secondary) at a $97 million market cap. The company is early stage and only began generating revenue in the current fiscal year. Adamas One intends to sell finished diamonds for jewelry and rough unfinished diamond materials for industrial uses.
