Here's Why Alibaba Shares Are Trading Lower Premarket

·1 min read
  • Global investors trimmed Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE: BABA) fintech affiliate Ant Group Co's valuation before its suspended initial public offering, Bloomberg reports.

  • Fidelity Investments slashed its estimate for Ant to $70 billion at the end of May, down from $78 billion in June 2021 and $235 billion just before Ant's IPO suspension in November 2020.

  • BlackRock, Inc (NYSE: BLK) reduced the value to $151 billion as of March from $174 billion, while T. Rowe Price Group, Inc (NASDAQ: TROW) trimmed it to $112 billion as of May, down from $189 billion in 2021.

  • Ant's profit fell 17% for the March quarter amid an ongoing regulatory overhaul.

  • Investors including Warburg Pincus Capital Corp (NYSE: WPCA), Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, Silver Lake, and Temasek Holdings Pte had invested in Ant at $150 billion four years ago.

  • Ant is amid restructuring to beef up capital, curbing consumer lending, and shuffling its management.

  • Jack Ma weighed ceding his control of 50.52% voting rights in the firm.

  • China quashed Ant's $34 billion-plus IPO in 2020 at the eleventh hour, forcing the technology firm to restructure as a financial holding company regulated by China's central bank.

  • Price Action: BABA shares traded lower by 1.33% at $92.95 in the premarket on the last check Tuesday.
