Arm plans to sell its shares on Nasdaq later this year, seeking to raise between $8 billion and $10 billion, setting the stage for this year's largest initial public offering, the sources said.

SoftBank has been targeting a listing for Arm, which competes with Intel and others, since its deal to sell the semi chip designer to Nvidia for $40 billion collapsed last year because of objections from antitrust regulators, the report noted.

Freshippo, the Alibaba (BABA) grocery chain known for selling cooked lobsters and grouper freshly chosen from fish-tanks in the store, started preparations for a Hong Kong initial public offering, Bloomberg's Pei Li and Manuel Baigorri reported earlier, citing people familiar with the matter.
