    * IPO breaks global record, surpassing Agricultural Bank of China Company sells 26.1 mln additional shares, Yahoo 18.3 mln

    * Jack Ma, Joe Tsai also sell additional shares

    By Elzio Barreto

    HONG KONG, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Alibaba Group Holding Ltd's initial public offering now ranks as the world's biggest in history at $25 billion, after the e-commerce giant and some of its shareholders sold additional shares.

    Overwhelming demand saw the IPO initially raise $21.8 billion and then send Alibaba's stock surging 38 percent in its debut on Friday. That prompted underwriters to exercise an option to sell an additional 48 million shares, a source with direct knowledge of the deal said.

    The IPO surpassed the previous global record set by Agricultural Bank of China Ltd in 2010 when the bank raised $22.1 billion.

    Under the option, Alibaba agreed to sell 26.1 million additional shares and Yahoo Inc 18.3 million, netting the two companies an extra $1.8 billion and $1.2 billion respectively.

    Alibaba's Jack Ma agreed to sell an extra 2.7 million shares and company co-founder Joe Tsai agreed to sell 902,782 additional shares, according to the prospectus.

    The source declined to be identified as the details of the additional sale have yet to be made official. Alibaba declined to comment.

    Citigroup Inc, Credit Suisse Group AG, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs Group Inc, JPMorgan Chase & Co and Morgan Stanley acted as joint bookrunners of the IPO.

  • The move into movies mirrors just-listed Alibaba’s (NYSE:BABA) announcement in June that it would allow users of its mutual fund Yu’e’bao to invest in movies. The combination of entertainment and finance seems to be a culmination of many of China’s internet giants’ goals: amassing a library of original video content and getting users to adopt their respective online financial tools such as ewallets, savings funds, and ecommerce platforms.

    Alibaba reportedly exercising green shoe option

    Published: Sept 21, 2014 6:23 p.m. ET

    By BEN EISEN REPORTER

    NEW YORK -- E-commerce company Alibaba Group's BABA, +38.07% bankers are reportedly exercising their option to sell more shares, Dow Jones Newswires reported Sunday, citing unnamed sources familiar with the matter. The so-called green-shoe option, which is often exercised if demand for the stock is strong, would increase the initial public offering size to $25 billion from $21.8 billion, making it the biggest IPO in history, according to Dow Jones. Alibaba's shares debuted on the New York Stock Exchange on Friday, with the stock closing out its first day at at a 38% premium to its IPO price.

    Translation:

    Banks are now authorized offer to sell 14.6% more shares than original offering because of green shoe clause. Normal benefit given to Brokerage houses who handle the offering.

    BABA to the 80's....YHOO slide baby slide...Boooyaaah!

    Sounds like banks saying the beatings will continue until morale improves...hehehe

    gotta love those quite periods....BAAAM!!!

    Facebook had a green shoe. Facebook IPO on a Friday as well. By the next Wednesday, they hit a low of down 18% from the open friday.

    This is not just bad for the stock price...this is "Run Forest Run" bad for the stock price.

    Appropriate considering we found out Friday from Cramer that Jack Ma's favorite movie is Forrest Gump

    Good analysis. But, it will be more than an hour worth of volume. Because, second day volume on IPO is always less than first day. So this represents at least 2 hours of volume in my estimation....1 1/2 hours minimum.

    What I am surprised that the company pulls this kind of bait and switch without explaining from the home office after the fact.

    There silence speaks volumes

    Remember Jack Ma famously quoted last week:

    #1 Customers
    #2 Employees
    #3 Investors

    Jack needs to take a class in fiduciary responsibility in the U.S.

    Well, at least he is open and honest how he feels about you longs...he cashed in and you rank last. His group of 20% holding has controlling interest to appoint board...like Face Book CEO, he can do what he wants.

    FB fell 18 in 3 days AFTER the first day IPO

    I think this will pull back at least 5-10% easy this week.
