Alibaba considering Zhaopin investment – The Information

The Information sources say Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) could invest hundreds of millions of dollars in online job ads company Zhaopin.

The investment could lead to a collaboration centered around data. Alibaba would bring its tech and large customer base to the table, and Zhaopin would offer data on jobs and hiring companies.

Last month, Bloomberg reported that Zhaopin was considering a private placement worth about $500M.

SEEK, FountainVest, and Hillhouse took the classifieds company private in 2017.

Zhaopin had 4.9M average unique visitors per day in FY20, up 29% Y/Y. Net income totaled $30.6M.
