May 16: Alibaba IPO

By Derek On May 17, 2014 Under Uncategorized

“We envision that our customers will meet, work and live at Alibaba, and that we will be a company that lasts at least 102 years.”

Unless you live under a rock deep in a cave somewhere on Pitcairn Island you probably know Alibaba Group Holding just filed its F-1 Registration Statement with the SEC last week for a much hyped and much anticipated IPO. The deal will be underwritten by CS, DB, GS, JPM, MS and Citi. Having read the full F-1 of 345 pages (twice), I have come to the conclusion Alibaba is a powerful story and the IPO will be in much demand.

The deal, however, is not without hair as on the other side of almost every transaction investors will find founder and Executive Chairman Jack Ma. We will examine these concerns closely.
