Why Arm’s Plan to Go Public Matters

Riding on the generative AI wave, British chip designer Arm Holdings Ltd. this week filed to go public on the Nasdaq exchange next month. It could be the largest IPO this year. However, it also might test investors' enthusiasm for AI, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Owned by Softbank, Arm isn’t a chipmaker itself; rather, it creates the “architectures”—or overall designs—that other companies use to build chips. SoftBank acquired Arm in 2016 for $32 billion, which at the time was the biggest-ever purchase of a European technology company, CNBC reports.

A successful Arm debut could breathe new life into a depressed IPO market that has paused many venture-backed startups’ plans to go public for the past two years, Crunchbase reports.
