This week’s calendar has five deals scheduled to make their debuts. They are expecting to raise almost $1.2 billion. Two are new faces pressed against the IPO window and both are reportedly “IPOs of Interest.” Rounding out the calendar, two are carryovers from the past and the other is a U.S.-based company whose shares have been trading on The Toronto Stock Exchange since July 2004. Some services are carrying this offering as an “IPO.” It is not. It is a public offering, a/k/a secondary offering.

This brings us to next week. At deadline, there were no IPOs on the calendar for the week of Aug. 19. As we have seen many times in today’s IPO market, though, the calendar can fill up quickly.
