It’s worth noting that several of these companies, namely Alopexx, Intensity Therapeutics, SONDORS and BullFrog AI Holdings, have previously been slated for IPO only for the week to pass by without their listing occurring. However, that doesn’t mean they won’t finally make the leap over the coming days.
That being said, here are some of the key IPOs slated for the week ahead:
This business intends to list 3 million shares of its common stock for an anticipated price of $5.00 a pop. The offering will see the company joining the NASDAQ under the ticker symbol “ALPX”.
Upon completion of this offering, Alopexx’s President and CEO, Daniel Vlock, will hold a majority of the voting power of the company’s capital stock through his ownership of 52%.
What is Alopexx?
Alopexx is a clinical stage biotechnology company developing novel immune therapeutics for the prevention, treatment and mitigation of bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections that express the antigenic target poly N-acetyl glucosamine (PNAG).
The company says that, in a first-in-man trial, its vaccine candidate, AV0328, was shown to be well tolerated with no serious adverse events observed. It was noted to induce protective antibodies against all PNAG-expressing pathogens tested.
The company claims the vaccine’s broad-spectrum potential will allow it to be used for the long-term prevention of a wide range of infections including pneumococcal pneumonia, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), meningitis, and sexually transmitted diseases.
Alopexx has also developed a fully human monoclonal antibody, F598, that targets PNAG. The business says this has been shown to be well tolerated and no serious adverse events were noted in phase 1 and pilot phase 2 trials. Alopexx claims it could provide immediate protection lasting 2-3 months.
