Chinese mobile publisher iDreamSky has floated on the NASDAQ, raising $115 million and closing at $15.94 after opening at $15. 7.7 million American depositary shares were traded over the course of the day.

"Four years of hard work and passion from our team members is how we got here, and this IPO is one of the most important milestones for iDreamSky's growth," said CEO and founder Michael Chen. "We have to work hard because this is just the opening chapter in a new age for iDreamSky."
