Saudi Aramco's bookrunners recommend IPO should be priced at top end
05 Décembre, 2019, 18:18 | Auteur: Auguste Feret
Saudi Arabia's oil giant Aramco is assessing setting the final offer price of its initial public offering at the top of the indicative range, which would raise US$25.6 billion and surpass the current record for the biggest IPO ever, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday, quoting people familiar with the discussions.
According to Bloomberg's sources, many Saudi fund managers have placed orders at the top end of Aramco's indicative range, expecting strong local demand to push the pricing to the highest level.
The deal could be the world's biggest IPO if it tops the $25 billion listing of China's Alibaba Group Holding Ltd in 2014.
Riyadh scaled back its original IPO plans, scrapping an worldwide roadshow to focus instead on marketing the offering to wealthy Gulf Arab allies.
The deal is the centrepiece of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's plans to diversify the Saudi economy away from oil.
Aramco did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
