Saudi Aramco’s shares rise 10% after world’s largest IPO

Energy & Low Carbon Industry | International | Latest News

Saudi Aramco’s stock rose sharply by 10% earlier today, after its listing got underway in Riyadh, following the world’s largest IPO last month and its record raise of £19.5bn last week.

The firm, which produces 10% of the world’s crude oil and is owned by the Saudi Royal Family, is looking at privatising its assets as part of a larger plan to move away from a reliance on oil.

The money raised from the sales and the listing will be used for non-energy investments.

Today’s 10% rise on Riyadh’s Tadawul stock exchange will now give Aramco a market valuation of around £1.43tn.
