Shein Private Bids Imply $30 Billion Valuation Drop Since April, Sources Say

Investors looking to sell stakes in Shein are evaluating bids at discounts of about 30% to its $100 billion valuation in April, according to people familiar with the matter, amid concern about the Chinese fast-fashion giant’s slowing growth.

While some current shareholders in the private company are considering cashing out ahead of a future initial public offering, the valuation spread between buyers and sellers remains a hurdle to any trade, the people said, asking not to be identified because the matter is private.
