Alibaba will buy a 10.35 percent stake in Singapore Post (SingPost) in the enlarged capital of the firm, the companies said in a joint statement. After the deal is complete, Alibaba will become the second biggest shareholder in SingPost after Singapore Telecommunications Ltd, whose stake will fall to about 23 percent from nearly 26 percent.
