Drugs and Oil
This brings us to the rest of this week’s IPO calendar.
Overall, there are six IPOs expecting to raise about $1.3 billion. Two of the remaining three deals are biopharmaceutical companies: Chimerix (CMRX – proposed) and Omthera Pharmaceuticals (OMTH – proposed).
The third company – an oil shipper – could be interesting. Here’s the lowdown.
KNOT Offshore Partners LP (KNOP – proposed) is a United Kingdom-based limited partnership formed to own, operate and acquire oil shuttle tankers under long-term charters. Underwriters plan to price 7.45 million Common Units at $19 to $21 each on Tuesday evening. The IPO is expected to start trading on Wednesday morning on the New York Stock Exchange.
From its prospectus: “We intend to make minimum quarterly distributions of $0.375 per common unit ($1.50 per unit on an annualized basis).”
That amounts to a yield of 7.5 percent, based upon the mid-point of its proposed price range.
This brings us to the following week, which will begin on Monday, April 15th, when most Americans with taxable income will have a date with the IRS. The calendar for the week of April 15th already has four IPOs expecting to raise about $1.2 billion.
The current IPO traffic – 10 deals expecting to raise $2.4 billion over this week and next – is not too shabby, considering that this time last week, the calendar was “clean and green.”
