ADNOC succeeds in its initial public offering Abu Dhabi national oil company (ADNOC) public subscription just came at the right time, following the initial public offering of billions of dollars of the drilling unit, which Adonic drilling belongs to. The company hopes to repeat this success with fertilizer company Fertiglobe JV. Fertiglobe succeeded to obtain $795 million in its initial public offering, to be the third biggest offering in Abu Dhabi’s stock market. This week, the company declared that at the end of the offering registration process the final offer price has been set at 2.55 dirhams ($0.69), at the average price of 2.45 to 2.65 dirhams, which was indicated last week. The company is a joint stock company between OCI chemicals, headquartered in the Netherlands and ADNOC; it sold 1.145.582.011 ordinary stocks, equalizing about 13.8% of Fertiglobe’s main capital. The current numbers indicate that Fertiglobe’s stock value when listing will be $5.8 million. The value confirms analysts’ previous expectations of $5.4 to $6 billion. The current offering is 22 double of average and 23 double for the qualified investor layer except the main investors. Yet the reports show a total demand of $17.4 billion. Fertiglobe’s success follows ADNOC’s drilling initial public offering which gained great success as well. In the beginning of October, the reports marked that the total revenues of ADNOC’s drilling public offering were above $1.1 billion, ADNOC said that the offering exceeded 31 times, and the registered demand was $34 billion. ADNOC in response to the rise of demand increased the offered stocks from 1.200 million ordinary stocks to 1.760 million ordinary stocks, to equalize %11 of the main capital. The impact of ADNOC’s initial public offering successes. The mentioned successes would lead to more active suggestions from ADNOC, the giant oil and Gas Company located in Abu Dhabi is restructuring its entire portfolio. The national oil organization isn’t benefiting from the market’s spirits only but also from the rise of demand on oil and gas all over the world, however for sure it aims at achieving an income due to its position in the chemical and fertilizer field. In the coming two weeks other projects will be declared, such as natural liquid gas investing, a new campaign from Abu Dhabi’s giant, and launching of renewable energy approach which supports its current strategy. The initial public offering impact on ADNOC If ADNOC is thinking of an initial public offering like its opponent Saudi Aramco this would be the best time, as oil prices are above $80 a barrel. Listing the oil and gas company in the stock exchange market will not only lead to gain more money, which is supposed to be cash for nothing but also can with perfect pressure arouse global markets interest. The challenges national oil companies like ADNOC and Aramco confront at the current time are not only about maintaining its oil and gas basic strategy, but also raising its non-hydrocarbon works. The giant investments required to establish (green) hydrogen works units and gain a big part of the renewable energy market won’t be only expensive but also will be very hard as well. Activists of ESG and SDG will be careful not to support national oil companies in the next few years. Although investing in oil is one of the most profitable investments, national companies should make sure of gaining enough money to fund the future growth.
