Tudou IPO exposes yet another China risk factor: the founder’s wife

Tudou Holdings Limited, a leading online video company in China, ended its initial public offering saga this week, limping onto Nasdaq (under the symbol TUDO) at a price equal to 16 times revenues in the 12 months through March 31. That valuation is about half the 31 times revenue rival Youku.com Inc. (NYSE: YOKU) received in its December 2010 initial public offering.
