Another Tiny IPO Pops With 181% Jump by China’s Infobird
A third tiny listing in as many weeks is surging in its market debut on Tuesday.
Infobird Co. Ltd. rose as much as 181% on Tuesday after raising $25 million in its initial public offering at a fixed price of $4 per share. Shares in the China-based customer engagement software company traded as high as $11.25 before paring back gains ahead of a trading halt.
The company is the latest in a series of stock listings under $25 million to surge in their U.S. debut. Utime Ltd., also based in China, surged 875% two weeks ago while Las Vegas-based Esports Technologies Inc., which focuses on customers in Asia and Latin America, popped 507% in its first day of trading last week.
The recent success of tiny listings contrasts with headaches among some larger debuts this month. But not every small listing is a winner. Another debut under $25 million on Tuesday, Los Angeles-based Troika Media Group Inc., fell below its IPO price.
WestPark Capital Inc. underwrote Infobird’s listing.
