ALBAWABA - Alibaba revealed plans to split its empire, worth about $220 billion, into six units, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday.

According to the Chinese company, five of the six units will focus on fundraising or initial public offerings.

In a statement released by Alibaba, the six units are Cloud Intelligence Group, Taobao Tmall Commerce Group, Local Services Group, Cainiao Smart Logistics Group, Global Digital Commerce Group and Digital Media and Entertainment Group.
