Ant’s IPO draws interest from Singapore investor
    2020-09-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

SINGAPORE state investor Temasek Holdings is considering an investment in the initial public offering (IPO) of Chinese financial technology company Ant Group, which could be the world‘s biggest IPO, two people familiar with the matter said.

Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC Pte Ltd. is also considering investing in the IPO.

Ant, backed by Alibaba Group Holding, plans to list simultaneously in Hong Kong and on Shanghai’s Nasdaq-style STAR Market and raise as much as US$30 billion.

That would make it the world’s biggest IPO since Saudi Aramco raised US$29.4 billion last December, which surpassed the record set by Alibaba in 2014.

Temasek and GIC are the first major Asian investors to be linked to Ant’s IPO.

The potential investments by two of the world’s biggest state investors underscore that Ant’s mammoth IPO is gaining traction. Temasek and GIC also participated in Ant’s US$14 billion funding round in 2018.

The sources declined to be identified as news of Temasek and GIC’s potential investment has not been reported.

Temasek is mulling investing in both the onshore and offshore legs of the dual listing, which could come as soon as October, said the second source.

The state investor is awaiting more details of Ant’s IPO before finalising its investment proposal, said the first person.

Temasek’s portfolio exposure to China, as measured by underlying assets, increased to a record 29 percent in the year ending March, from 26 percent a year earlier, while exposure to Singapore fell to 24 percent from 26 percent.
