9 IPOs to watch this week
The offerings range from pet insurers to medical billing companies.
Nine initial public offerings are scheduled for the week of July 14, including Medical Transcription Billing (MTBC), which was previously expected to open last Thursday.
The two largest IPOs for the week are TerraForm Power (the latest spinoff of SunEdison (SUNE), and Trupanion, a pet insurance provider.
TerraForm is issuing 20.1 million shares between $19 and $21 to raise just over $400 million in SunEdison's second spinoff following SunEdison Semiconductor (SEMI).
SunEdison Semiconductor's May IPO rose 15 percent in its first day of trading and 34 percent since inception.
TerraForm intends to use the majority of funds received to repay a bridge credit facility and for general corporate purposes.

Trupanion is an IPO representing a growing interest in medical insurance for pets. In response to rising costs in veterinary expenses, pet owners can now buy insurance to provide peace of mind, knowing man's best friend is insured when expensive and complicated procedures arise.
Trupanion's simple insurance policies offer to pay up to 90 percent of medical expenses including injury and illness. According to the company, this can include "diagnostic tests, surgeries, medications, hospital stays, and alternative therapies for the treatment of injuries or illnesses."
In a recent S-1 filing, the company intends to use proceeds to "increase our financial flexibility, create a public market for our stock, obtain additional capital and increase our
visibility in the marketplace."
