Preliminary bidders including UBS (UBSN.VTX), Temasek Holdings and BNP Paribas (BNP.EPA) have purchased a 10% stake in the state-owned Postal Savings Bank of China for at least US$3 billion, Reuters reported, citing unnamed sources.

The bank is preparing for an initial public offering next year that could raise around US$25 billion — the record set last year by Alibaba (BABA.NYSE) — according to a February China Daily report.
