Aramco may be big, but fawning to Saudis diminishes London

Giving the state-owned oil firm a premium stock market listing would make a mockery of all the investor protection such a category entailsThere are two ways to run a stock market. The first is to do little more than provide a platform for buyers and sellers to meet. In this lightly policed model, anyone can play. Buyers must look after their own interests and no one can complain too much if the stocks turn out to be duds. The second approach is more demanding. Companies wishing to join such a market must commit to high standards of governance and grant their shareholders strong ownership rights that are enforceable. Investment accidents can still happen, but outright abuses should be rarer.The London stock market was, we assumed, firmly in the second camp. In days of old, the City may not have been overly fussy about shareholder rights. But in the second decade of the 21st century – and especially after a dangerous experiment from 2010 in attracting Russian companies – the debate had surely been settled in favour of high standards. After all, a reputation for trust benefits everyone. It attracts long-term investors with big pools of permanent capital and allows companies to enjoy lower funding costs. Continue reading...

As Aramco decides where to sell shares, FCA proposes controversial changes to pave way for LSE listing The City regulator is proposing to water down stock market rules in a move regarded as an attempt to attract the world’s biggest ever flotation – of Saudi Aramco, the Gulf kingdom’s state oil company – to London.The proposals by the Financial Conduct Authority come as Aramco weighs up which financial centre to pick for the sale of 5% of its shares. The company could be valued at $2tn – a huge price tag that would also generate hundreds of millions of dollars in fees for investment bankers, lawyers and other professional firms involved in stock market flotations.

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...
