HONG KONG -- At least four Chinese technology companies, including e-retailer and search engine Baidu, are considering a secondary listing in Hong Kong that could collectively raise as much as $15 billion, as U.S.-listed Chinese companies seek to follow Alibaba's successful listing and move closer to home, four people familiar with the discussions said.

The companies' plans are at an early stage and they are still holding talks with investment banks including Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, Bank of America and China International Capital Corp, to act as their arrangers for the potential fund-raisings, the people said.
