Coming off a strong end to the third quarter, October is set to get off to a quick start with seven deals on the calendar in the week ahead.
Investors will undoubtedly be paying close attention to the next notable tech deal, Coupa Software ( COUP ), which comes on the heels of strong third quarter performance for tech deals (+66% on average) and Nutanix's ( NTNX ) 131% pop on Friday. Coupa offers high growth as a leading provider of spend management software, a large market. While it has secured major enterprise customers (e.g. Sanofi, Toyota), the unprofitable company will face stiff competition from competitors SAP and Oracle.
The week ahead will also see serial entrepreneur and reality TV star Marcus Lemonis' Camping World Holdings ( CWH ) come public. Camping World is the largest RV retailer in the US and recently demonstrated strong comp store sales growth, but operates in a highly cyclical industry.
Two PE-backed issuers in defensive sectors are also scheduled for the week ahead. Both boast long-term contracts with large customers, but also have relatively high debt and capex requirements. Advanced Disposal Services (ADSW), the week's largest IPO, provides municipalities with waste management services. It postponed an IPO in February. AquaVenture Holdings (WAAS), which is backed by Element Partners (last IPO was TPI Composites; TPIC), provides US corporations with purified water and Caribbean islands with desalinated water.
