  • SoftBank Group has secured major tech giants, including Apple, Nvidia, Intel, and Samsung as strategic investors for Arm's upcoming IPO. Other investors in the IPO include Advanced Micro Devices, Cadence Design Systems, and Google among others, with contributions ranging from $25 million to $100 million. The IPO is expected to raise $5 billion to $7 billion and will price its shares between $47 and $51 per share.

  • The involvement of prominent technology companies in Arm's IPO is expected to boost the offering and is seen as a positive development for SoftBank, which acquired Arm in 2016. The IPO is scheduled to have its investor roadshow next week, and Arm is considering pricing its shares on September 13, with trading commencing the following day. SoftBank's decision to retain more of the company than initially planned, valuing Arm at around $55 billion, has generated interest in the offering. 

Why it matters

Arm, known for its chip designs and technology licenses, is a critical component of over 1 billion smartphones sold annually. This development underscores the importance of Arm's IPO in the tech industry and SoftBank's strategic moves to capitalize on the chip industry's growth and investor interest.
