Qiwi climbs in 1st day as a public company

NEW YORK (AP) - Shares of Qiwi rose slightly in their first day of trading on the Nasdaq.

The payment services provider's stock added 10 cents to $17.10 in Friday morning trading.

Qiwi PLC's initial public offering of 12.5 million Class B shares raised $212.5 million, with the IPO's size boosted from 12 million shares.
