6 companies eyeing IPOs this week

Published: Monday | August 6, 2012 Comments 0

Six companies are expected to make their stock market debut this week, including the companies behind Outback Steakhouse restaurants and the Carl's Jr. and Hardee's fast-food chains.

Bloomin' Brands, which operates Outback, is looking to raise $300 million in its initial public offering.

CKE, which runs the two hamburger eateries, is eyeing a $200 million raise.

Manchester United Ltd., one of the most popular soccer clubs in the world, also is slated to go public with an offering that looks to bring in $300 million.

The timing of the IPOs coincides with the final week before most of Wall Street goes on break until after Labor Day.

It also caps a summer IPO season that got off to a slow start due to the fallout from Facebook's disappointing market debut.
