Week Ahead

After the busiest week for $100+ million IPOs in over a year, six small companies are currently scheduled to go public in the week ahead, four of which are eligible for inclusion in our IPO stats.

Electric bike maker SONDORS (SODR) plans to raise $20 million at a $96 million market cap. The company makes premium electric bikes through a collection of kits, and offers its entry level model to Costco customers through a partnership. Unprofitable but growing, SONDORS has delivered over 63,000 e-bikes in 72 countries since 2015.

Fitness equipment brand Interactive Strength (TRNR) plans to raise $14 million at a $100 million market cap.
