    How is the $26 billion valuation calculated?

     

    F-1/A states 94-108 million ADSs to be outstanding immediately after the offering.

     

    "Each ADS represents two of our Class A ordinary shares, par value US$0.00002 per share."

     

    "2,734,171,730 ordinary shares, comprised of 2,177,875,831 Class A ordinary shares and 556,295,899 Class B ordinary shares (or 2,763,756,650 ordinary shares if the underwriters exercise their over-allotment option in full and Huang River Investment Limited exercises its option to further subscribe to Class A ordinary shares to maintain the 5% proportionate size of the concurrent private placement, comprised of 2,207,460,751 Class A ordinary shares and 556,295,899 Class B ordinary shares) will be issued and outstanding immediately upon the completion of this offering."

     

    "Class B ordinary shares issued and outstanding immediately after the completion of this offering will represent 20.3% of our total issued and outstanding shares and 83.6% of the then total voting power (or 20.1% of our total issued and outstanding shares and 83.4% of the then total voting power if the underwriters exercise their over-allotment option in full)."

     

    I am not seeing any calculation in this information to suggest a $26 billion valuation. Where am I missing something?

     

    When considering other Chinese companies, most calculate their market and enterprise value by ADS......no?

    With a 2:1 ratio, 2.734B ordinary shares is the equivalent of 1.37B ADS. 1.37B x $19 = $26B.

    Or I guess we consider that each Class B share is worth two ADSs as well if we divide the total 2,763,756,650 by 2 (1.38 billion ADSs outstanding), and multiply by the $19/share price, then we get the $26 billion valuation.

    Thanks Eric, I was having some trouble considering the Class B side of the equation.
