There are no deals set to price in the upcoming week; however, we expect to begin to see filings from companies targeting January 2018 IPOs. We rounded out 2017 at an even 160 IPOs, raising $35.5 billion in total proceeds, nearly double that of 2016. Refer to our 2017 Annual Review for further insights and analysis, along with what we expect to see in 2018. 

Six Lock-Up Expirations, Including Blue Apron
Six 2017 IPOs will have lock-ups released this week, including US meal-kit delivery service Blue Apron Holdings  ( APRN ). The company recently announced that one of its co-founders would step down as CEO and be replaced by the current CFO Brad Dickerson. Down 60% from its offer price, Blue Apron hit operational challenges immediately after coming public, and fell short of revenue and margin targets. 

Tintri ( TNTR ), which sells all-flash storage arrays and software to create enterprise clouds, also has a lock-up expiration in the week ahead. Shares are down 25% from the offer price, with high cash burn putting stress on its balance sheet.
