GCT Semiconductor (NYSE:GCTS) stock is falling on Thursday after the fabless semiconductor company’s shares made their public debut on Wednesday.

GCT Semiconductor stock went public via a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) merger with Concord Acquisition Corp III. That resulted in shares of GCTS taking over the CNDB stock ticker once the combination closed. The company’s warrants also trade publicly under the GCTSW ticker.

GCT Semiconductor CEO John Schlaefer said this about the public debut:

“The public listing catalyzes our product development and commercialization and the gross proceeds raised through the transaction will position us to benefit from the global market transition from 4G to 5G. I couldn’t be more excited for what’s to come for GCT.”

The public debut of GCTS stock came with an extreme amount of trading yesterday. That saw more than 4 million shares change hands during normal trading hours. It also resulted in GCT Semiconductor’s shares rocketing almost 569% higher yesterday.
