Ma went missing for nearly three months now, before the video circulated online. A lot of speculations arise since no one knows his whereabouts, even his own company.
According to Reuters, the video was captured for the annual Rural Teacher Initiative event of the Jack Ma foundation. Alibaba Group comfirmed that he attended the said event.
"We cannot meet in Sanya due to the epidemic," he said in the speech. "When the epidemic is over, we must find time to make up for everyone's trip to Sanya, and then we will meet again!"
Though Alibaba Group confirmed their founder's reappearance, no one in the company still knows (or confirm) any information on where Ma really went for the past months, or where he is currently staying now.
The background of the video only shows a room with grey marble walls and a striped carpet.
Thanks to Ma's reappearance in public, investors may have seen this positive event as an opportunity to buy stocks from Alibaba again.
Since the news circulated, over 6% increased were seen in the company at the stock market. This was compared to 0.64% consensus jump in the Hang Seng index.
