HYBE's $1 billion acquisition of Ithaca won’t just unite two of the music industry’s biggest phenoms under the same roof – Justin Bieber and K-Pop’s BTS.

Colin Huang is stepping back from $197 billion e-commerce upstart Pinduoduo and relinquishing special voting rights. It’s a bold move, but it leaves a shortage of top talent as rising costs bite, writes @sharonlamhk: https://t.co/0znCCD8eR4 https://t.co/hQ6MJKLURH

Sea, the $127 bln tech conglomerate, is buying an Indonesian lender and won a digital bank licence in Singapore. Expanding in finance sensibly deploys capital to diversify. Venturing into far-flung markets though is less prudent: https://t.co/dINiZYds53 @sharonlamhk https://t.co/rLZnkBWKRe
