China's Sina Plans U.S. IPO for Weibo

Sina Corp. is aiming to raise roughly $500 million in a second-quarter U.S. initial public offering of the Twitter-like service, according to two people with direct knowledge of the deal. Sina—which is already listed in the U.S.—has hired Credit Suisse AG and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. to handle the U.S. listing, one person said. The Financial Times reported the Weibo IPO plans earlier Monday.

Along with the U.S. listing, Weibo could get a further boost from Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., the Chinese e-commerce company.
