Top 10 worst-performing 2014 IPOs on first day of trading

King Digital Entertainment shares fell more than 15 percent in their market debut Wednesday, making it the worst-performing initial public offering so far this year.

King's "Candy Crush Saga" climbed atop download charts on Facebook and iPhone, but investors worried if the London-based game maker could produce another home run.

King's shares hit an intraday low of $18.25 on Thursday from their IPO price of $22.50, which valued the company at about $6 billion.

Here is a list of other IPO flops this year.
