The Biggest IPO In History To Be Delayed

What’s been dubbed the biggest IPO in history, Saudi Aramco’s 5-percent listing, could take place later than initially planned, sources familiar with the deal told Bloomberg. The sources did not go into detail as to what could delay the listing but, as Bloomberg notes, there are still several issues to be settled ahead of the listing, which was originally scheduled for the second half of 2018. To begin with, Aramco has yet to announce the location of its secondary listing, which would be abroad. At the moment, the London Stock Exchange…

FCA must backtrack over Saudi oil giant Aramco | Nils Pratley

Plans to rewrite London listing rules to attract premium flotations leave a bad taste in the mouthAndrew Bailey, the chief executive of the Financial Conduct Authority, is usually good at reading the breezes. He is the safe-hands operator whom the former chancellor George Osborne switched from the Bank of England to inject some much-needed credibility into FCA after its various calamities. For most part, the FCA under Bailey has performed as intended. Muscular common sense and a sound grasp of markets, which are all that’s really required of a financial regulator, have returned.But if Bailey wants to keep this better image for the FCA he will have to find a way to abandon the proposal to rewrite the listing rules to make it easier for Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil company, Aramco, to float in London. The investment community hates the idea and the heat on the FCA will intensify now that the chairs of the Treasury and business select committees are asking pointed questions about ministerial interference.

A decade after the financial meltdown, its underlying problems haven’t been fixed

The banks have, to a certain extent, changed their ways: but cheap credit, low interest rates and mountains of debt are still with usTen years ago this week, the global financial crisis started with a small rumble in France. Local bank BNP Paribas announced it was freezing the assets of three hedge funds with heavy exposures to the US sub-prime mortgage market. A little more than a year later, after the run on Northern Rock and the bailout of Bear Stearns in the US, the full earthquake arrived in the form of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, one of Wall Street’s biggest banks.We soon discovered the full horrors within the financial system. Banks had taken on risks they did not understand and called the process “innovation”. Credit rating agencies had fallen asleep. Weak or incompetent regulators, encouraged by politicians, had been idle. In the UK, RBS would be mostly nationalised and the ailing HBOS was shoved into the arms of Lloyds TSB with a state bailout to follow. Continue reading...

Morrisons' indignation over shareholder rebellion is misplaced | Nils Pratley

If the supermarket wants investors to back its executives’ pay, it shouldn’t annoy them with a top-up that looks greedyWhen 48% of shareholders rebel against a company’s remuneration report, most chairmen scuttle into the shadows muttering empty words about seeking further engagement with investors. So Andy Higginson, chairman of Morrisons, deserves some credit for coming out fighting after more than half of investors either voted against the proposal or withheld their vote. Morrisons “fundamentally disagrees” with the assessment by proxy voting agency ISS that executives’ new performance targets aren’t stretching.The argument here is slightly technical. Chief executive David Potts is being incentivised to get Morrisons to produce £800m of cash over the next three years. Is that demanding? It’s hard to tell, since comparisons are distorted by disposals and one’s view of how past working capital improvements should be regarded. Continue reading...

China’s State Oil Giants Import More Oil In May

China’s crude oil imports went up by 15.4 percent on an annual basis last month on the back of more purchases coming from state-owned companies, Platts reports.
