Telecommunications company Uniti Group (ASX:UWL) has topped the list of companies making their debut in 2019 with a whopping 500 per cent gain since listing.

The internet service provider’s share price hit $1.50 last Friday to give it a $480m market capitalisation.

Since listing in mid-February following a $13m capital raising, Uniti has increased its 25c offer price five times over.

Uniti is joined by two other companies on the winners podium this year — 3D surgical implants printer Osteopore (ASX:OSX) and shared biller Splitit Payments (ASX:SPT).

Earning itself silver in the top gainers, medtech Osteopore was up 283 per cent to 76.5c on Friday, compared to its 20c offer price.

Taking out the bronze, fintech Splitit added 244 per cent to close last week out at 68.75c.

On top of their overall best performances in 2019, Osteopore and Splitit both had top five first-day debuts. Osteopore made the best first impression on investors, while Splitit came in at number five.

The other three that had a top-five first-day performance this year were Andrew-Forrest favourite Invex Therapeutics (ASX:IVX), which came in second, QuickFee (ASX:QFE) at number three and Amaero International (ASX:3DA) fourth spot.

The mapping company has made number 10 on our gainers list, sitting 97 per cent higher at $1.97 by the end of last week.
