PrivCo: Alibaba Group's Latest Financials Reveal Expected IPO Valuing the Group at More Than $110 Billion; Jack Ma to Become One of Asia's Richest People; Alibaba's Financial Performance Outstanding

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 16, 2013) - Alibaba Group's latest results, published in Yahoo's most recent quarterly financial report, show powerful revenue growth and even stronger improvements in operating profitability. Using a revenue multiple approach, PrivCo estimates that Alibaba would be valued at approximately $110 Billion if it were to go public tomorrow, and implying an IPO size of $18-$25 Billion, likely on the New York Stock Exchange.

PrivCo Analysis:

China's largest internet commerce platform is essentially a combination of eBay, Amazon, PayPal, Groupon and more. Founded by Jack Ma in 1999, Alibaba Group has rocketed to the top of China's major new enterprises with strong topline growth and robust margins. The transaction would also catapult founder Jack Ma into the highest rung of Asian billionaires at a net worth of up to $33 billion. Sustained revenue growth and strong margins make the company a strong play on the Chinese market.
