Among the four independent directors who have been asked to join the board are former-Hong Kong Chief Executive Tung Chee Hwa, Yahoo founder Jerry Yang and J. Michael Evans, former vice chairman of Goldman Sachs Group.
The updated filing gives potential investors more information about the operations of China's biggest e-commerce firm, whose initial prospectus, filed in May, was criticized for its lack of detail.
The Alibaba Partnership is comprised of 22 members of management, four members of the company's Small and Micro Financial Services and one management member of China Smart Logistics.
Alibaba earlier said partners are elected annually and the partnership has the exclusive right to nominate for shareholder approval a majority of its board directors.
"Partners are evangelists for our mission, vision and values, both within our organization and externally to customers, business partners and other participants in our ecosystem,'' Alibaba said.
The company's five executive board directors are Ma, Tsai, Lu, Chief Operating Officer Daniel Zhang and Masayoshi Son, the founder of SoftBank, Alibaba's biggest shareholder with a 34.3 percent stake.
Alibaba also broke out the value of goods transacted over its marketplaces Taobao and Tmall without giving their individual sales or profitability.
