Credit Suisse set to profit again in Alibaba IPO

Credit Suisse (CS) has yet another reason to be excited for Alibaba’s (ABABA) IPO - the bank would make a paper profit of $68M if Alibaba lists at a valuation of $121B, due to $50M worth of convertible bonds it purchased in the group in 2012.

The $68M gains would be a notch higher than the underwriting fees Credit Suisse would see from the IPO. The bank expects to recieve $66M from the offering.

    Alibaba hype or no hype seems to be fair at 121 billion valuation. Seems like it will be a force on Wall Street.
