11:06 EDTYOKU, NTES, SINA, PWRD, SOHU, CYOU, BIDUChinese Internet stocks fall after SEC charges accounting firms
Chinese Internet stocks are sinking after the SEC charged the Chinese subsidiaries of the four major U.S. accounting firms with violating securities laws for refusing to produce paperwork connected to fraud at nine Chinese companies, according to The Financial Times. The SEC may have created a "Catch 22" situation for Chinese companies listed in the U.S., as Chinese law prevent the companies from sharing audit documents with foreign companies, the newspaper noted. In a note to investors earlier today, Wells Fargo analyst Trace Urdan wrote that delisting may be "economically prudent" for some Chinese companies. In mid-morning trading, SINA (SINA) fell 6.38% to $42.55, BIDU (BIDU) dropped 4.75% to $91.35, Sohu.com (SOHU) slid 3.18% to $38.32, NetEase (NTES) gave back 3.94% to $42.00, Changyou.com (CYOU) lost 1.50% to $24.37, Youku Tudou (YOKU) declined $1.19, or 7.18% to $15.38 and Perfect World (PWRD) dropped 3.10% to $10.78.

08:11 EDTBIDUBaidu receives non-binding offer to acquire Qiyi.com
Baidu announced that its board of directors has recently received a non-binding proposal from Robin Yanhong Li, chairman and CEO of Baidu, and Yu Gong, CEO of Qiyi.com, proposing to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Qiyi beneficially owned by Baidu based on an enterprise valuation of $2.8B for 100% of Qiyi on a cash-free and debt-free basis. Pursuant to the non-binding proposal, the buyers expect that Qiyi will remain a strategic partner of Baidu after the consummation of the transaction and enter into business cooperation agreements with Baidu. Baidu currently owns 80.5% of Qiyi's total outstanding shares on an as-converted and fully-diluted basis. The Board has formed a special committee comprised of three independent directors to evaluate the transaction. "The Board cautions Baidu's shareholders and others considering trading in its securities that the Board recently received the non-binding proposal and no decisions have been made with respect to Baidu's response to the proposal. There can be no assurance that any definitive offer will be made, that any legally binding agreement will be executed or that this or any other transaction will be approved or consummated," Baidu stated.

06:33 EDTBIDUChinese public growing unhappy with Baidu, WSJ says
The people of China are becoming unhappy with Baidu, and the internet search giant needs to exercise a balance to maintain profit and public interest, Wall Street Journal columnist Li Yuan says. Yuan brings up the example of Pan Longfei, a man with a rare heart and kidney disease who was led astray to a private hospital featured on a sponsored link on Baidu, when a public hospital in Guangzhou was able to properly diagnose and treat his condition better. Baidu is the largest search engine in China with approximately 80% of the market, the report says. Pan joined a revolt against Bauidu after seeing a post claiming that Baidu populated the web with information from shoddy businesses, including a hospital which reportedly didn't have a medical license, the report says.
