Shares of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (NYSE: BABA) dipped in morning trading on the NYSE Tuesday and remain down 2.4% as of 12:45 p.m. ET on news that the company's cloud computing business is laying off workers. Bloomberg broke the story today, reporting that Alibaba will lay off 7% of the employees at its cloud computing division before spinning this division off and IPO'ing it. Alibaba Cloud is the company's second-biggest division by revenues (after e-commerce, of course), but after strong growth for years, its sales declined 5% last year -- and Cloud still isn't profitable for Alibaba.
Alibaba did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment. Earlier this month, the Chinese tech giant laid out listing and fund-raising plans for four of its business units, including its logistics unit Cainiao. As part of the plans, China's largest cloud service is slated to be listed next year.
