In recent times, China is increasing its scrutiny and oversight on Chinese companies seeking foreign listing (IPO) and technology companies, requiring Chinese companies to seek approval for foreign IPOand to undergo cybersecurity review.  Chinese companies with more than 1 million users must apply for cybersecurity approval as the data and personal information could be exploited by foreign governments.

The new rules could impact companies such as TikTok (ByteDance) potential IPO.   Chinese technology stocks Didi Global, Alibaba, Tencent, JD.com, Bilibili and Meituan’ share prices immediately declined.

In November 2020, Ant Group planned IPO that will raise $34.5 billion and create a Chinese financial technology giant with more than $300 billion market capitalization, was suspended by both Shanghai and Hong Kong Exchange. China regulators have reported Ant Group have failed in major issues including meeting listing conditions and information disclosure requirement.

In May 2021, Alibaba Group posted its first quarterly loss since IPO in 2014 with $1.17 billion losses for Q1 2021.  The Q1 2021 earnings was hit by a $2.78 billion fine in April 2021 by China’s State Administration for Market Regulation Anti-monopoly Law, representing around 4% of Alibaba’s 2019 revenue.
