Alibaba Group, the Chinese e-commerce giant is planning to announce its IPO price on September 18th, 2014 and will be listed on NYSE officially on the following day.

Ever since it decided to go public in America in March and then submitted the application to SEC in May, Alibaba as the largest IPO in the US ever, has captivated all trades of investors and folks throughout the world.

Just a night before everything comes to a close, Dragon Gate Investment Partners is coming along with senior professionals and investors to take every one of you who are keen about this IPO, to retrospect the past legendary 15 years and look to witnessing the rest 87 years of glory of Alibaba.

Is Alibaba’s IPO a magic as if “Open Sesame” opens the mouth of the treasure cave or it actually uncovers the Pandora ’s Box? Is this biggest IPO is going to affect other US-listed Chinese companies? Does it forebode the apex of the US stock market? How is the stock market going to be after they finish the IPO transaction?

For the internal, what has been supporting Alibaba to keep thriving? What is going to sustain its growth in future? And, is it appropriate to compare Alibaba as the Chinese version of Amazon or eBay?
