Talend (NASDAQ:TLND), which provides a cloud-based data integration platform, plans to raise $84 million with a market cap of $476 million. Though currently unprofitable, the company addresses a $16 billion market and has managed to secure big-name customers such as General Electric, Allianz and Citi. The company may continue the trend of top-performing tech IPOs this year.

Bioventus (BIOV) plans to raise $150 million next week with a market cap of $575 million. Carved out of Smith & Nephew (NYSE: SNN), the company specializes in orthobiologic products and has successfully supplemented its mature bone repair device and hyaluronic acid injection business (83% of 1Q16 sales) with an acquired portfolio of higher-growth surgical products.

Kadmon (NYSE:KDMN), a biotech focused on developing kinase inhibitors for autoimmune and other diseases, is set to raise $100 million to fund further clinical trials of its Phase 2 lead candidate. Kadmon was founded by former ImClone CEO Sam Waksal after his prison term for insider trading relating to the Martha Stewart scandal; the biotech is now led by brother Harlan Waksal and had an accumulated deficit of $677 million as of the MRQ.

Kinsale (NASDAQ:KNSL), which is led by former executives from James River (JRVR; 12/14 IPO; +63%), is set to be the only public pure-play insurer in the excess and surplus segment of the P&C industry. Expected to raise $90 million, the company has maintained an industry-leading combined ratio, though its average premiums declined in the same period.
