Arm Holdings Considers Raising IPO Price Range
Arm Holdings Ltd. is reportedly considering raising the price range of its initial public offering (IPO) after meeting with investors. The company’s IPO is currently six times subscribed, making it the largest listing this year.
Arm filed for its IPO at $47 to $51 a share, valuing the company at $54.5 billion at the high end of the range. However, it had initially targeted a valuation of $60 billion to $70 billion.
Possible Price Increase
It is common for companies and their investment bankers to try to create positive momentum before final pricing of an IPO. Reuters reported that Arm is discussing the possibility of raising the price range even further, potentially pricing the offering at the top or above the range.
Any price increase would indicate strong demand for Arm’s stock during the roadshow. Arm has been looking to raise up to $4.87 billion by offering 95.5 million American depositary shares.
Revenue Growth Expectations
During its investor roadshow, Arm stated that it expects revenue growth of 11% in the current fiscal year and a mid-20% increase in fiscal 2025. This growth is attributed to the growing demand for chips in data centers and artificial intelligence.
Arm’s CEO, Rene Haas, expressed optimism about the company’s future growth during an investor luncheon in New York. He stated that price increases have provided a larger bump than seen historically and expects robust growth to continue into the 2026 fiscal year.
Arm’s IPO pricing is expected to be finalized soon, with trading set to begin shortly after. The potential price increase indicates strong investor demand for Arm’s stock, reflecting positive market sentiment towards the company’s future growth prospects.
