Microblog ads began trading on the NASDAQ Global Select Market on April 17, with the code WB. Goldman Sachs Group (Asia) and Swiss Credit Securities (USA) are the joint underwriter of the IPO.

This is the fifth year since Sina launched its microblog business in 2009, with Weibo listing the first listed company in the domestic social media field, which was officially renamed Weibo at the end of March this year.
