JD Logistics Inc’s shares soared 14% in their stock market debut on Friday, a strong start for what is only the third mega listing in Hong Kong so far this year.
Shares of the subsidiary of Chinese e-commerce company JD.com opened at HK$46.05 compared to the HK$40.36 price in their initial public offering (IPO). The city’s benchmark Hang Seng Index was up 0.36%.
JD Logistics raised $3.2 billion in its IPO, the second largest in Hong Kong in 2021 and only the third to raise more than $1 billion in the city this year.
The other two were Kuaishou Technology, which leapt 161% on debut in January, and Linklogis Inc, which gained 9.9% in April on opening day.
With the stock’s strong debut on Friday, JD Logistics has a market value of around $36 billion.
