Inc.’s stake in Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. rightly trades at a discount, according to the Chinese e-commerce giant’s vice chairman, Joseph Tsai, because selling it would trigger a big U.S. tax bill.

He continued “The fact that the Alibaba stake still sits within Remain Co., is people haven’t figured out how to solve that tax problem. So that asset should trade at a discount because it has this big built-in tax liability.’’

He continued “If we owned the Remain Co. we have to figure out how to break into that glass box to get our shares back.’’
