CK Hutchison Holdings and three sister companies will report their earnings next Friday, and the question on everyone's mind is whether that will be the day Li Ka-shing will step down as chairman.

Asked if Li, who has reportedly decided to retire this year, will announce his retirement then, Canning Fok Kin-ning, co-managing director, said yesterday after a press conference by AlipayHK that "you will know then."

AlipayHK is a joint venture between CK Hutchison and Alibaba affliate Ant Financial.
