Xiaomi Reportedly In Talks To Raise Funds

Xiaomi Inc. intends to raise funds from DST Global. DST Global may invest $1.5 billion in Xiaomi, Financial Times reported, citing several sources. Xiaomi is holding talks with investors and banks to raise money in new capital at a valuation set to exceed $40 billion. “Negotiations with investors including DST- the Russian internet company that also backed Alibaba, Facebook and Airbnb - are yet to be finalized, according to people familiar with the discussions. But if completed, the deal would propel the four-year-old Chinese company to the top tier of the global technology industry at a valuation exceeding that of Sony and Lenovo put together," the newspaper said. Prime added that Xiaomi declined to comment.
