A new epoch in China’s financial history is starting off as the Shanghai Stock Exchange opening bell is ringing today.

STAR Market, the SSE-based sci-tech board, is ready for the first day of open trading. In a few minutes, market users will be enabled to buy and sell shares of the stocks issued by 25 Chinese firms from a handful of knowledge-intensive industries, including semiconductors, software, new materials and biotech.

All the applicants’ stocks were reportedly oversubscribed among the primary investors. As a result, average P/E ratio of the first batch shot up to 53.4. Not to mention some extreme cases such as AMEC, a leading chipmaker that is valued at over 170 times earnings this time.

Total market valuation of the tech enterprises debuting on the SSE today amounts to CNY 236 billion (USD 34.29 billion) while the combined amount of capital raised during the public offerings hit CNY 37 billion (USD 5.38 billion). CRSC, a transportation industry behemoth, alone obtained over CNY 10.5 billion (USD 1.53 billion) in new funding.

Chinese government launched the STAR Market in attempt to ignite innovative development by providing alternative financing sources for domestic technology-driven businesses. The new trading platform has a set of advantages over other domestic boards.
