The world has a new most profitable public company. Saudi Aramco debuted on the Riyadh exchange today, climbing 10%—the daily limit on the Saudi Tadawul exchange—and raising $25.6 billion and valuing the oil giant at $1.88 trillion – just below the kingdom’s target valuation of $2 trillion. Saudi officials pulled out all the stops for the local IPO which marks the end of a multi-year saga to take the oil producer public that recently saw international investors largely reject the offer, citing valuation and governance concerns as well as possible security threats. “It’s a great day for Saudi Arabia and the leadership of Saudi Arabia and for the people of Saudi Arabia,” Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman told Reuters. “It’s a D-Day for Aramco, it’s a day of reckoning and vindication.”
