Baidu's secondary IPO is 100x oversubscribed.

Baidu's upcoming IPO is one of the largest IPOs in Hong Kong, followed by its predecessors Kuaishou and Alibaba.

The Chinese multinational company is reportedly 100x oversubscribed by institutional investors, with only 5% of its remaining shares available to the public (retail investors).

In fact, the firm's IPO plans are referred to as the "biggest homecoming of a Chinese company" in the trade industry.

The company today has a market cap of over $88.89B, making it one of the most valuable companies in the world.
