On Wednesday, the stock started at HK$18 and ended at HK$18.22. One American depository receipt in New York is equivalent to two class A shares in Hong Kong. On Tuesday, the ADRs were closed at $4.58 (HK$35.95).
The Shenzhen-based company opted for an introduction, which is a quicker and simpler process for businesses that have already been listed elsewhere, to make its debut in the Asian financial capital. The company run by tech giant Tencent Holdings Ltd. is one of a growing number of Chinese businesses deciding to list domestically as rising Sino-US tensions increase the possibility of delisting from US markets.

Holders of ADRs will have the option to cancel their ADRs and get equivalent class A shares in Hong Kong, per the listings provisions. Worldwide valuations for businesses looking to go public this year through conventional initial public offerings were constrained by volatile equity markets, high inflation, and rising interest rates. As a result, there has been a decline in the amount of money raised in places like New York, London, and Hong Kong.
