Japan's SoftBank books $2.2 billion derivative loss

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's SoftBank Group (9984.T) on Wednesday said it booked a derivative loss of 252.8 billion yen ($2.2 billion) in the last financial year mainly due to its holdings in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holdings (BABA.N).

SoftBank holds a 29.9 percent stake in Alibaba. It said last year it was selling at least $7.9 billion in shares in Alibaba to cut debt.
