Shares of Chinese automotive information provider Autohome are surging in their trading debut.

The American depositary shares are up $11.60, or 68 per cent, to $28.60 in morning trading after climbing as high as $31.37 shortly after they hit the market.

Late Tuesday, the company priced its initial public offering of 7.8 million American depositary shares at $17 each, above their projected range, for total proceeds of $132.9 million.

The offering’s underwriters also have a 30-day option to buy up to 1.2 additional American depositary shares at the IPO price for additional proceeds of $19.9 million.
