Shein’s investors are trying to sell shares in the private market at prices that value the Chinese online retailer as low as $45 billion, or a discount of around 30 percent to its valuation about a month back, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday.

Shareholders’ stock sales in late 2023 valued Shein between $45 billion and $55 billion, Bloomberg said, citing people familiar with the matter.


Shein, according to Reuters sources, was valued at $66 billion in a fundraising in May.

Shein did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Cyberspace Administration of China conducted a cybersecurity review of the company in mid-January, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Meanwhile, its rival Temu filed a lawsuit last month alleging Shein employed “Mafia-style intimidation” to coerce suppliers common to both companies to stop working with Temu.
