Recent IPO Announcements

IPOs are a good investment if the company has strong potential. In the first half of 2024, there were many opportunities in the IPO market. By June 28, 94 new companies had joined the US stock market through IPOs, which was 25.68% higher than the same period in 2023. Some companies, including the two mentioned below, are still planning to go public.

Nova Minerals Ltd

Nova Minerals (NVA), an Australian company exploring gold, plans to raise $8 million by selling shares. It owns most of the Estelle Gold Project, which covers more than 125,000 acres in Alaska. The project contains very large amounts of gold in four different areas. 

Recently, the company also found antimony and other vital minerals there. Nova initially planned to list on the NASDAQ stock exchange but will join recent IPO companies when it begins trading on the NYSE in June. The company has submitted the paperwork to the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

ZenaTech, Inc.

ZenaTech’s listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the ticker ZENA on July 16, 2024, is a significant financial milestone. The company will issue 102,481,427 shares, generating $7.10 million in proceeds. It’s important to note that this is a resale of common stock, so ZenaTech will not receive any proceeds from the sale and will incur an offering expense of around $174,048 for the listing.

ZenaTech is a top provider of hardware and software solutions for various industries. They offer business software for healthcare, education, finance, law, government, and other sectors. ZenaTech includes companies such as ZenaDrone, PacePlus, WorkAware, SystemView, ZigVoice, and StrandUSA.

Performance of Recent IPOs

Life360, Inc. (NASDAQ: LIF)

Life360 debuted on the NASDAQ stock exchange, trading under the ticker LIF at $27 per share on June 6, 2024, and has since rallied to over $30. It’s doing well, with a 1-year target price of $37. 

Its stock has been trading between $32.93 and $32.07 and closed the last trading day of the second quarter at $32.39, a 1.57% increase from its previous close of $31.89. The company has a strong market capitalization of $2.26 billion, showing investors’ confidence in it. 

Life360 is a well-known service developed in 2007 in San Mateo, California. It helps people stay in touch with their family, friends, pets, and belongings by allowing them to share their location for safety. This free app with optional paid features offers communication, driving, digital safety, and emergency protection. 

As of March 31, 2024, Life360 had 66.4 million monthly active users. Out of these users, 1.9 million are paying subscribers. The company earned $304.5 million in revenue in 2023 through subscriptions and hardware sales.

Tempus AI, Inc. (NASDAQ: TEM)

Tempus AI is a relatively young company founded in 2015. It uses AI to process medical data for intelligent diagnostics and precision medicine. It debuted on the Nasdaq, opening at $37 per share, floating 11,100,000 on June 14, 2024. The stock surged 18%, closing 10.5% on its first day, and rallied to a high of $43.88 before levelling down. It has shade off 13.04%. 

However, recent news that it received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA for its Tempus ECG-AF device pushed it up. This AI-driven device helps identify patients at increased risk of atrial fibrillation/flutter (AF). The risk is a common cause of stroke. With the clearance, the device is the first to get such approval in the “cardiovascular machine learning-based notification software” category. 

Tempus is building comprehensive platforms that facilitate data-driven decisions in healthcare, ultimately aiming to improve patient outcomes. It posted a revenue of $532 million in 2023 but reported a net loss of about $200 million owing to heavy capital investments. But its efforts are paying off, and TEM is guaranteed a bullish ride.
