Af­ter a slight lull in the IPO mar­ket ear­li­er this month, the in­dus­try re­turned in full force this week by cel­e­brat­ing two new Nas­daq en­trants in ad­di­tion to a SPAC merg­er.

Centes­sa comes in as the biggest win­ner, pulling in a $330 mil­lion haul and pric­ing above its ex­pect­ed range at $20 per share Fri­day. The 10-in-1 hold­ing com­pa­ny marks the fourth-largest IPO raise among biotechs in 2021, com­ing ahead of all debu­tants ex­cept for Sana, Zymer­gen and Re­cur­sion.
