    Millionaire livestreaming star shares tricks of the trade

    Zhang Dayi makes a living by livestreaming. And for her, it's turned into a very lucrative business. In fact, she's a millionaire. Dayi films herself talking about items of clothing and answers questions on anything from its sizing to smell. Ahead of China's online shopping festival "Double-12", the equivalent of e-commerce giant Alibaba's Single's Day, millions have watched her every move -- and provided affirmation in the form of 'likes'. The secret to her success? Well, she says it takes dedication, ambition and the direct communication that comes with livestreaming. (SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) LIVESTREAMER AND SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCER, ZHANG DAYI, SAYING: "I started my (online) shop in the second half of 2014. At first, I used a form of photo and text (to interact with users), and then short videos, and then gradually used livestreaming as a tool to frequently chat with users. I think livestreaming is an all-around and more direct way of communication. Along with the development of the internet and changes to online platforms, we are also optimising ourselves. I think when it comes to us selling products, it (livestreaming) is a very effective way to convince users and communicate with them as well as establish trust with them." Dayi dipped her toe into the world of live-streaming when Alibaba started testing the service. She has four business -- which earned 48.6 million US dollars across the Singles Day event in November.

    Saudi Aramco Set to Pay Banks Only $64 Million for Record IPO

    (Bloomberg) -- Saudi Aramco is poised to pay a combined $64 million to the banks that arranged the world’s largest initial public offering, a letdown for the Wall Street firms that pitched aggressively for a spot on the deal, people with knowledge of the matter said.The Gulf oil giant plans to pay the top local banks on the deal -- known as joint global coordinators -- 39 million riyals ($10.4 million) apiece, according to the people. The top foreign banks on the deal are set to each get 13 million riyals, or the equivalent of $3.5 million, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private.The figures represent the base fee being paid by Aramco, which will decide the amount of discretionary incentive fees at a later date, the people said. If Aramco opts to dole out additional money, most of it would likely go to the domestic banks that brought in the bulk of the IPO orders.Aramco raised $25.6 billion in its share sale, which became a local affair after foreign fund managers shunned its premium valuation. The base fee, representing 0.25% of the funds raised, pales in comparison to other large deals.IPO banks globally earned average fees equal to 4.1% of the deal size this year, up from 3.6% last year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Chinese internet giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., which raised $25 billion in its 2014 IPO, paid about $300 million to its underwriters including performance fees.Saudi Arabia didn’t need the Wall Street firms’ international networks after it scrapped roadshows outside the Middle East, turning instead to local retail buyers and wealthy families to shore up the deal. The foreign underwriters on the deal will barely make enough to cover their costs, Bloomberg News has reported.Aramco will pay local banks serving as bookrunners, a more junior role, about 5 million riyals each while foreign banks in that position will be paid about 2 million riyals apiece, the people said. The company declined to comment.(Updates with details of fee breakdown in third paragraph.)\--With assistance from Dinesh Nair.To contact the reporters on this story: Sarah Algethami in Riyadh at salgethami@bloomberg.net;Matthew Martin in Dubai at mmartin128@bloomberg.net;Archana Narayanan in Dubai at anarayanan16@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Ben Scent at bscent@bloomberg.net, ;Stefania Bianchi at sbianchi10@bloomberg.net, Michael HythaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Bankers Promote Hong Kong Listing After Alibaba Success

    Bankers told The Nikkei that they are asking U.S.-listed Chinese companies to list in Hong Kong after Alibaba’s landmark Hong Kong listing success in November. “We are actively promoting a listing in Hong Kong to a clutch of companies we believe will be well received by Chinese investors," said one of the bankers interviewed by The Nikkei. Inspired by that, bankers are pitching Hong Kong listing to other U.S.-listed Chinese companies, especially those with a net worth of around $400 billion and technology firms, such as Baidu Inc (NASDAQ: BIDU) and JD.Com Inc (NASDAQ: JD), according to The Nikkei.

    SoftBank May Sell Alibaba Stock to Fund Buyback, Jefferies Says

    (Bloomberg) -- The slump in SoftBank Group Corp.’s shares could prompt Masayoshi Son to play an ace card -- cashing in part of his stake in Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.Son is likely to sell Alibaba stock to help pay for another buyback in an attempt to bolster SoftBank shares, according to Jefferies Group analyst Atul Goyal. It’s a surprise the Japanese technology giant’s shares are “languishing” despite its large stake in Alibaba, Goyal wrote in a note. The shares have become “decoupled,” and SoftBank is seeing little upside from its holding, he said. SoftBank’s stock is up 16% this year, while Alibaba’s has surged 45%. SoftBank’s market cap is about $82 billion, though its Alibaba shares alone are worth about $128 billion.SoftBank’s February announcement of a record 600 billion yen ($5.5 billion) buyback sent its shares to a peak in April, but the stock has since lost most of the gains. Investors have been spooked by the one-two punch of Uber Technologies Inc.’s plunge after an initial public offering in June and WeWork’s meltdown that forced a bailout by SoftBank. The poor performance of Son’s two marquee investments called into question the billionaire founder’s deal-making approach just as he’s trying to raise a successor to his $100 billion Vision Fund.As the current stock price is “well below” the average price paid in the stock repurchase earlier this year, “we will not be surprised if SoftBank Group funds yet another buyback, perhaps in February 2020, by selling some more stake in Alibaba,” Goyal said.SoftBank’s sale of part of its stake in the Chinese e-commerce giant earlier this year and using Alibaba shares as collateral for a loan indicate Son’s willingness for such a move, Goyal said. In addition to buybacks, proceeds could be used for investment in the second Vision Fund, the analyst said.Responding to criticism about his reluctance to exit successful investments, Son in June 2016 unveiled a plan to sell 73 million American Depositary Shares in the online mall operator. The complex transaction, structured so that he could retain some upside if the stock rose, took three years to complete. SoftBank booked 1.2 trillion yen in pre-tax profit from the deal and still holds about 26% of Alibaba.To contact the reporters on this story: Kurt Schussler in Tokyo at kschussler1@bloomberg.net;Pavel Alpeyev in Tokyo at palpeyev@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lianting Tu at ltu4@bloomberg.net, ;Edwin Chan at echan273@bloomberg.net, Peter Elstrom, Vlad SavovFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
