í░We are assessing IPO opportunities in different markets, including NASDAQ. In terms of cost and geography, however, Hong Kong is more convenient,í▒ said Kingsoft chief financial officer Wang Donghui.

Also in the group were Intelí»s venture-capital arm, Intel Capital, and New Horizon Fund, a private equity fund set up by Singapore state investment company Temasek Holdings Pte. and Tokyo-based financial service company SBI Holdings Inc.
