US IPO Week Ahead: IPO calendar could see some activity in the short holiday week

February 17, 2023
Week Ahead

Two small deals are currently scheduled for the short holiday week, though only one is eligible for inclusion in our IPO stats.

While the calendar is quiet for now, we could see sizable launches after Presidents’ Day as more companies finalize year-end financials. Some large issuers in the pipeline have already started updating their filings. Frac sand miner Atlas Energy Solutions (AESI) disclosed 2022 financials this past week ahead of its estimated $200 million IPO, and thrift store chain Savers Value Village (SVV) provided preliminary results earlier this month ahead of its estimated $250 million IPO.

On the calendar, advertising contract marketplace NYIAX (NYX) plans to raise $9 million at a $71 million market cap. The company’s platform facilitates the listing, buying, and selling of advertising or audience campaigns, utilizing smart contracts and blockchain technology. Small and highly unprofitable, NYIAX’s platform is protected by a joint patent held by the company and a Nasdaq subsidiary.

While not included below, Chinese e-commerce play ICZOOM Group (IZM) may raise $7 million at a $46 million market cap. The company operates an online B2B electronics trading platform primarily for SMEs in China, offering semiconductor products and other electronic components. ICZOOM is profitable and growing.
