Autonomous Trucks, Health Care and More: Thursday's IPOs

While Wednesday’s initial public offering (IPO) of stock in Coinbase Global Inc. (NASDAQ: COIN) may be hard to top in the excitement department, there are four more noteworthy non-SPAC IPOs launching Thursday.

While no single Thursday IPO can match Coinbase’s $85 billion opening day market cap, the four IPOs combined are set to add more than $44 billion to the value of U.S.-traded firms.

Esports Technologies

Esports Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: EBET) is developing and operating software platforms for esports and competitive gaming. The company priced its IPO at $6 per share, the top of its estimated range of $5 to $6.
