Tencent Holdings Ltd (OTCMKTS:TCEHY)
Chinese internet giant Tencent Holdings Ltd (0700.HK) said it would lead an $863 million investment in apparel platform Vipshop Holdings Ltd (VIPS.N), upping its rivalry in retail with Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (BABA.N).
Tencent will invest $604 million for a 7 percent stake, while e-commerce firm JD.com Inc (JD.O), which already owns about 2.5 percent in Vipshop, will invest $259 million to increase its stake to 5.5 percent, the firms said.
The deal extends a recent push by Tencent into Alibaba’s home turf of retail, where the firm hopes to leverage its messaging service WeChat and its online payment systems to drive shopping demand.
Tencent Holdings Ltd also plans to invest 4.2 billion yuan ($636 million) in a 5 percent stake in Yonghui Superstores Co Ltd , the supermarket chain operator said on Friday.
Tencent aims to acquire a combined 478.5 million shares at 8.81 yuan per share from Yonghui’s two owners via its affiliate Linzhi Tencent Technology, Yonghui said in a filing to the Shanghai stock exchange.
The price of 8.81 yuan a share is a discount to its last closing price of 9.78 yuan on Dec. 8, when the stock surged by its maximum 10 percent daily limit. Trading in its shares halted thereafter, and will resume on Dec 18.
The move by Tencent, China’s biggest social network and gaming company, is seen as its latest push into bricks-and-mortar retail to further compete with its rival Alibaba.
