I wonder if Alibaba will raise the anticipated $7.1 Billion it needs over the Yahoo deal.

Alibaba Group Seeking $2 billion Stake From China's CIC [reuters.com]
Sovereign wealth fund China Investment Corp (CIC) is in advanced talks to buy an up to $2 billion stake in Alibaba Group, sources told Reuters, as the Chinese e-commerce powerhouse looks to secure the last of the funding it needs to buy back part of its stake from Yahoo Inc.

The involvement of CIC, China's giant sovereign wealth fund which manages around $410 billion in assets, underlines the significance of the deal Alibaba has struck with Yahoo, which returns voting control back to founder Jack Ma.

It also emphasises the potential value of the company.
