UAE’s ADNOC Gas announced on Friday that the final price of the IPO was set at AED 2.37 per share ($0.645), meaning the size of the offering is about $2.5 billion and the company’s market capitalization is about $50 billion.
On Monday, the company announced its decision to raise the size of the IPO to 5 percent of the company’s shares (3.84 billion shares) from 4 percent due to strong demand from investors.
The total demand for the offer shares exceeded $124 billion, which exceeded the target value by fifty times, making the IPO the largest listing ever on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange, according to the company.
Chief Financial Officer Khalid Al Zaabi said in a statement: “We are delighted with the unprecedented demand for ADNOC Gas’ offering from retail investors in the UAE as well as from local and international institutional investors.” Listing and trading on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX) will begin on March 13.
