The combined market value of the stakes in publicly listed companies that SoftBank holds has reached 19.2 trillion yen ($170.5 billion), a 90 percent premium to the Japanese technology conglomerate's own market capitalization.

Unfortunately, a lot of these assets are illiquid and will be hard to monetize.

This was always a problem for the companies that spun out subsidiaries during the long-gone - but much mourned - Internet Bubble days.
