Aramco Fails To Bring Foreign Investors On Board

Market Movers

• Aramco has failed in terms of trying to bring foreign investors on board. So for now, the $26-billion Aramco IPO is very localized.

The company stated earlier in the week that it would sell 850.6 million ordinary shares with the stake estimated to be worth $3.3bn.
