Volvo shares jumps 13% on its first day of trading 

Volvo Cars saw its share price increase by 13% from its initial price offering (IPO) on its first day of trading. 

The Swedish car manufacturer had set an initial price range between US$6.15-US$7.55 but announced on Monday it had settled at the bottom end of that spectrum. In the market, it reached US$7.03 this morning. 

Volvo raised US$2.3bn of proceeds from the share sale.

“It’s a very exciting journey, and now we have the money for it,” he said in a webcast opening ceremony this Friday.
