Alibaba shares closed last night with a collapse of around 8% on both the New York Stock Exchange and the Hong Kong Stock Exchange after regulators unexpectedly suspended the listing of its subsidiary, Ant Group.

The Alibaba fintech IPO was to take place tomorrow, November 5, in the Shanghai and Hong Kong markets and the operation was expected to bring in more than 34 billion dollars.

Since September 2019, Alibaba has been the owner of a third of Ant Group, the parent of the payment platform Alipay. The price per share that had been set for Ant on the Shanghai Stock Exchange was 68.8 yuan (10.25 dollars) and 80 Hong Kong dollars (10.32 dollars) on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
