Celltrion has regained the biggest Kosdaq market capitalization five months after it was beaten by Daum Kakao.
Celltrion shares surged 2.25 percent on Monday to W68,200 (US$1=W1,132), bringing the company's Kosdaq market cap to W7.64 trillion.
But Daum Kakao sank 1.16 percent to W119,000, leading to a market cap of W7.36 trillion.
The bio-pharmaceutical company had risen to the top spot for the first time in February 2009 and maintained that position until October 2014. But then Celltrion slid to the second spot due to the merger between Daum and Kakao, resulting in a W3 trillion difference in market cap.
