--FILE--A Chinese employee is seen at the stand of Chinese automobile information provider Autohome Inc., also known as autohome.com, during the 16th Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition, also known as Auto Shanghai 2015, in Shanghai, China, 22 April 2015.
Autohome, China's largest automobile e-commerce site, has had a turbulent first half of the year. In May, Telstra, Australia's largest telecommunications company, announced that it had settled on a buyer for its 47.7% stake in Autohome. The stake was scooped up by China's second largest insurance firm, Ping An. Only hours after the intended sale had been announced, another buyout offer was tabled by Autohome's then CEO James Qin. Qin's offer represented a 6.6% percent premium to Ping An's, but Telstra choose to sell to the insurance giant. A few months and a huge management reshuffle later, Autohome's shares have slid more than 30% since.Zhou junxiang—Imaginechina via AP
