GigaCloud Technology Inc., a Hong Kong-based online marketplace provider, surged 28% in its debut on Thursday, joining a string of smaller companies from Asia that are still tapping the US market to sell shares in spite of a crackdown from regulators in Washington and Beijing.

GigaCloud opened at $19.20 at the Nasdaq in New York, up 57% from its original offer price of $12.25 per share, raising $36 million. It pared some of the earlier gains to close at $15.69. E-commerce giant JD.com Inc. owns a 12% stake in the business-to-business trading platform specializing in merchandise for the furniture sector.
