  收购雅虎中国后,阿里巴巴公司旗下公司包括阿里巴巴中国网站( www.alibaba.com.cn ) , 阿里巴巴英文网站( www.alibaba.com ),淘宝网( www.taobao.com ) , 支付宝公司( www.alipay.com ),搜索门户( www.yisou.com ),在线拍卖网站( www.1pai.com.cn ),中文上网服务公司( www.3721.com )以及雅虎中国门户( www.yahoo.com.cn )。

 

Chinese business website Alibaba.com is scheduled to make a significant announcement, which could be related to its reported sale of a 35 percent stake to Yahoo for one billion dollars.

Alibaba has called a media conference for 0600 GMT in Beijing with sources saying a "significant" announcement would be made. Neither company has however commented on reports of a tie-up(关系;联系;关联) .

The Wall Street Journal has reported that Yahoo will pay one billion dollars and give its China operations to Alibaba in return for a 35 percent stake in the Chinese online retailer.

If confirmed, the deal would be the largest investment by a foreign company to gain access to China's 100 million net users.

Yahoo's possible purchase comes a week after investors showed their hunger for Chinese Internet companies, with leading Chinese search engine Baidu's listing on the NASDAQ exchange sparking a buying frenzy.

Baidu's shares surged 364 percent on the first day of trading -- the largest one-day rise for a US initial public offering in the past four years.

Alibaba, based in the eastern China city of Hangzhou, employs some 2,000 staff and operates the online auction site Taobao.com as well as its flagship(旗舰) trading site Alibaba.com.

Its online payment system, AliPay, is also competing with eBay's PayPal for dominance in China.

Any deal would give the Silicon Valley firm greater access to China's e-commerce market, which is expected to reach 77 billion dollars this year, analysts have said.

"The deal will give Yahoo the reach of Alibaba's five million Chinese small- and medium-sized businesses, who search for trading deals on the platform," said Edward Yu, president of Beijing IT research and consulting firm Analysys International.

"This will help Yahoo to cross sell its business products and services to the established client base," he said.

A deal may also breathe new life into Epai, the firm's flagging joint venture with Internet portal operator Sina.

Yahoo first entered the China market in late 2003 by purchasing keyword search firm 3721 Network Software for 120 million dollars.

The reported deal would be a setback for eBay Inc which was thought to be interested in partnering with Alibaba, according to Forbes.com.
