Upcoming IPOs this week

Each week I like to look at the upcoming IPOs which are happening on the ASX. It gives me a chance to see if there are any future stars being listed and perhaps get in early on that success story.

Every single share that currently trades on the ASX was a newly-listed share at one point, they should not be avoided just because they are new.

Here are the latest shares to be listing according to the ASX:

Diverse Security Needs Limited (to be renamed Parazero Limited) (ASX: PRZ)

Its proposed listing date is 16 May 2018.

Its principal activity is the development and manufacturing of innovative safety systems for drones.

Its product is called a SafeAir safety box which independently monitors the flight operation of the drone and if a failure occurs it can activate a patented ballistic parachute which also warns people underneath and communicates with the unmanned traffic system.

It’s hoping to raise $7 million at $0.20 per share.

Evans & Partners Asia Fund (ASX: EAF)

Foolish takeaway

Quite a lot of businesses are scheduled to list this week. The drone company sounds fun, but I’d want to see the financials in 12 months time before considering investing. I don’t think I’m going to invest in any of them, but the Evans Asia Fund would be the one I’d pick if I had to choose one, my portfolio has very little exposure to the Asian share markets.

However, one Aussie company that's just starting to expand into Asia is this top stock.
