The Hong Kong-based financial services provider priced an IPO of 5M shares at $4 a share. The company had expected to price the offering between $4 and $5. This led to gross proceeds of $20M, not taking transaction costs into account.

As of 2 p.m. ET, the stock was halted due to high volatility — its seventh halt of the day. At that point, shares were trading at $150.72, an advance of more than 3,000% compared to IPO price.
