Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. shares listed in Hong Kong soared over 8% on Monday after the company was fined $2.77 billion for violating China's anti-monopoly laws and "abusing market dominance."

The tech giant's CEO Daniel Zhang noted he doesn't expect the fine to have a "significant impact" on Alibaba and added the company will lower barriers and costs of entry for merchants on its platform.

Alibaba surged 8.07% at 8:19 am CET.
