Saudi Aramco begins preparations for international listing
Saudi Aramco is starting early preparations for an international listing, just months after the oil giant turned its record initial public offering into a domestic affair and sidelined global banks, people with knowledge of the matter said.
The world’s largest publicly traded company is in discussions with Wall Street banks to draw up scenarios for a second listing overseas, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because the information is private.
Aramco wants to be ready to move ahead if Saudi Arabia’s de-facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, gives the go-ahead to proceed with the plans, the people said.
The company hasn’t set a timetable for the potential deal, the people said. An overseas listing is currently seen as unlikely to take place this year given market conditions and a weak outlook for commodity prices, according to the people.
Aramco is considering a secondary listing even after its December offering fell short of Prince Mohammed’s lofty ambitions.
The company sold less than 2% of its capital and opted for a local listing after international investors balked at his $2 trillion valuation target.
