Storyline


Chinese fintech giant Ant Group on Thursday opened subscriptions for the Shanghai leg of its initial public offering (IPO), which is set to be the world's largest in history.

The group is poised to raise about 34 billion U.S. dollars in a concurrent IPO in Shanghai and Hong Kong, making it the biggest listing of all time.

It plans to split its share sale equally on Shanghai's tech-heavy STAR Market and the Hong Kong stock exchange, with up to 1.67 billion shares for sale on each bourse.

On Monday, the company set the price for its flotation on the Shanghai Stock Exchange at 68.8 yuan (around 10.26 U.S. dollars) per share. Its offering in Hong Kong was priced at 80 Hong Kong dollars (roughly 10.32 U.S. dollars) apiece.

Ant has said that strategic investors, including Ant's former parent and e-commerce mammoth Alibaba Group, have agreed to subscribe to 80 percent of the Shanghai leg of the IPO.

The company is slated to begin trading in Hong Kong on November 5, with its Shanghai portion expected at the same time.

Its upcoming blockbuster listing has raised concerns among some investors about a possible liquidity shortage in the market. But Lv Changshun, chief analyst with Beijing Zhonghe Yingtai Management Consultant Co. Ltd., has dismissed such speculations.

"Some investors are worried that the world's largest ever IPO will attract a large amount of money and affect the liquidity of the A-share market. However, I believe the tight liquidity is more closely related to the limited capital in the financial market at the end of the month and has nothing to do with Ant Group's IPO. The tight liquidity in the market will probably be eased when Ant Group is listed in early November," said Lv.

According to Ant Group, the parent company of China's leading mobile-payment business Alipay, it has reached over one billion users, 80 million merchants, as well as 2,000 partner financial institutions worldwide.
