Description:
Alibaba is an unusual name for a Chinese company. Its founder, Jack Ma, a
former English teacher is an unlikely corporate titan.
Yet the house that Jack built is home to the largest virtual shopping mall
in the world, soon to overtake Walmart in the number of goods sold. The
company’s IPO on the New York Stock Exchange in September 2014 raised
$25 billion, the largest stock market flotation in history. In the months that
followed, Alibaba’s shares soared, making it one of the top ten most
valuable companies in the world, worth almost $300 billion. Alibaba
became the most valuable Internet company in the world after Google, its
shares worth more than Amazon and eBay combined. Nine days before the
IPO, Jack celebrated his fiftieth birthday, the soaring value of his stake
making him the richest man in Asia.
But since that peak, Alibaba’s life as a publicly listed company has not
gone according to plan. Its shares fell by half from their post-IPO peak,
even briefly falling below the initial offer price. Investor concerns were
sparked in early 2015 by a surprising entanglement with a government
agency over intellectual property, then fueled by the slowing Chinese
economy and volatile stock markets, which dragged down Alibaba’s shares
in their wake.
