Jack Ma’s Alibaba at risk of being delisted by SEC

Jack Ma’s Alibaba Group Holding is among a list of Chinese companies that could face delisting, the Securities and Exchange Commission said Friday, pushing the e-commerce giant’s shares down about 10%.

Alibaba is among more than 270 Chinese companies listed in New York identified as being at risk of delisting under the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act, intended to address a long-running dispute over the auditing compliance of US-listed Chinese firms.

US regulators have been demanding complete access to audit working papers of New York-listed Chinese companies, which are stored in China.

While Washington and Beijing are in talks to settle the dispute, KFC operator Yum China Holdings, biotech firm BeiGene, Weibo and JD.Com are among firms that could face delisting.

On Wednesday, the SEC Chair Gary Gensler said he would not send public accounting inspectors to China or Hong Kong unless Washington and Beijing can agree on complete audit access.

Alibaba is among more than 270 Chinese companies listed in New York identified as being at risk of delisting under the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act.

He said the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, which oversees audits of US-listed companies, would need to be able to bring “specificity and accountability” in audits of foreign companies listed on Wall Street.

Alibaba has until Aug. 19 to submit evidence disputing identification, the SEC said.

The company did not immediately respond to a Acesparks request for comment.

Others added to the list on Friday include Mogu, Boqii Holding Limited, Cheetah Mobile and Highway Holdings Limited.

Ma reportedly plans to cede control of financial tech giant Ant Group, an affiliate of Alibaba, as Ant prepares to restructure into a financial holding company.
