Tencent is giving away $16 billion of its stake in JD.com

Tencent Holdings Ltd. plans to distribute more than $16 billion of JD.com Inc. shares as a one-time dividend.
 

The payout stirred speculation that Tencent may be preparing to pare its holdings in a plethora of companies, including some of China’s biggest tech names, as it pivots to focus on overseas growth and new arenas such as the metaverse. JD is just one of several Tencent-backed firms -- including Pinduoduo Inc., ride-sharing giant Didi Global Inc. and food delivery giant Meituan -- that have come to dominate their respective spheres, thanks in part to the enormous traffic generated by WeChat’s billion-plus users.
 

Tencent surged 4.2%, while shares of JD dropped 7% as of the Thursday close in Hong Kong. Still, the sizable JD stock sale may prove to be a one-off move for Tencent, which has been struggling to reassure its shareholders after a turbulent year. A person familiar with Tencent’s management said they have evaluated its portfolio and have no intention of paring down or exiting other investments -- such as Meituan and Kuaishou Technology -- in the coming months. Meituan closed 1.7% lower, paring early losses, while those of Kuaishou and fellow Tencent investee Bilibili Inc. ended near their lows for the day.
 

腾讯转让京东千亿股份,刘强东重回第一股东!

腾讯发布公告,宣布以中期派息方式,将所持有约4.6亿股京东股权发放给股东。本次派息后,腾讯对京东持股比例将由17%降至2.3%。
 

同时,京东集团也发布公告称,腾讯目前间接持有本公司已发行股份约17.0%,宣布将向其股东分配其持有的京东集团约4.6亿股A类普通股。
 

说白了,就是腾讯要把持有的京东股票,发给腾讯的股东。对于这番变动,外界纷纷解读为腾讯“变相减持”。而这轮操作过后,腾讯和京东之间的关系,也将发生一些重大变化。
 

其一,腾讯不再是京东第一大股东。
