Four IPOs and one SPAC plan to raise $663 million in the week ahead, led by Jamf Holding (JAMF).

The IPO market is on a hot streak, and the IPO pipeline is filling up as filing activity remains high. Several companies could join the IPO calendar in the coming week, including leading mortgage lender Rocket Companies (RKT), tax software provider Vertex (VERX), Brazilian digital education spin-off Vasta Platform (VSTP), and a handful of biotechs (AlloVir (ALVR), Annexon Biosciences (ANNX), Nurix Therapeutics (NRIX)). Bill Ackman’s $4 billion SPAC Pershing Square Tontine Holdings (PSTHU) could also launch.

Acquired by Vista Equity Partners in 2017, Minneapolis-based Jamf plans to raise $288 million at a $2.8 billion market cap. Tiger Global and Dragoneer have indicated on $100 million of the offering. The company’s cloud-based software helps enterprises deploy and manage Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) devices. Coming to market at a discount to its SaaS peers, Jamf has achieved strong growth (+37% in MRQ) and a track record of positive EBITDA margins (9% in MRQ), though the space is becoming more competitive, including from Apple itself.

Environmental services firm Montrose Environmental Group (MEG) plans to raise $160 million at a $374 million market cap and $683 million enterprise value. The company has made 53 acquisitions since its 2012 inception, most recently Arkansas-based CTEH in April 2020 for $198 million. Montrose believes that its clean air and water services will see rising demand as more companies adopt Corporate Social Responsibility and ESG initiatives. Though it is profitable on EBITDA, it has a history of operating losses and will carry over $300 million in net debt post-IPO.
