Alibaba buys rest of UCWeb
Chinese ecommerce group Alibaba is taking full ownership of mobile browser company UCWeb, in yet another acquisition that will bulk up its presence on the mobile internet ahead of its US IPO later this year.

Terms weren't disclosed in a Chinese statement. An English statement is expected later on Wednesday.

Alibaba already owned a two-thirds stake in the company and in April the two companies launched a mobile search engine to compete with internet rivals Baidu and Tencent.

The FT reported in late April that Alibaba and UCWeb are gambling that China's top ranked search engine Baidu, which has more than 60 per cent of the country's internet search market, may be vulnerable when it comes to the mobile internet, where smaller screens may not favour the traditional search engine that generates pages and pages of loosely targeted results.

Yu Yongfu, CEO of UCWeb, is to become head of the unit and also join a decision-making committee at Alibaba.

中国电子商务集团阿里巴巴(Alibaba)将全资收购移动浏览器公司UC浏览器(UCWeb)。这笔收购将加大阿里巴巴在移动互联网领域的影响力。今年晚些时候阿里巴巴将在美国启动首次公开发行(IPO)。

中文声明中没有透露收购条款。预计英文声明将在周三晚些时候发布。

阿里巴巴此前已持有UCWeb三分之二的股权。今年4月,两家公司推出了一款移动搜索引擎,与百度(Baidu)和腾讯(Tencent)展开竞争。

今年4月底,英国《金融时报》报道称,阿里巴巴和UCWeb押注于百度在移动互联网领域可能存在的短板。百度在中国互联网搜索市场排名第一,占据60%的市场,但作为传统搜索引擎,它通常会产生数量众多却不那么精确的搜索结果,并不适用于屏幕较小的移动终端。

UCWeb首席执行官俞永福将担任UC移动事业群总裁,还将加入阿里巴巴决策委员会。
