    Complementary Information

    The above numbers reflect Alibaba employees who are engaged in the activities described under heading 9. However, we have excluded from this figure Alibaba executive officers who spend a de minimis percentage of their time in covered activities, such as occasional meeting attendance.

    In addition, Alibaba employs the services of a public affairs firm, and a consulting firm, whose staff provides a limited amount of support for those activities, approximately equivalent to a .5 FTE. Those external resources are also not included in the figure above.
