The Wall Street Journal reported that Saudi Arabia’s Aramco, the world’s most valuable oil company, appears to be considering selling a stake of as much as $50 billion.

The Journal cites "people familiar with the potential deal" for the info. The 50bn cited would be the largest offering in the history of capital markets.

Says the WSJ piece:

after months - long consultations with advisers, the kingdom has decided to host any new Aramco offering on the Riyadh exchange to avoid legal risks associated with an international listing

final decision hasn’t been made on the timing of the deal, but some of the people familiar with the transaction say the kingdom could offer the shares before the end of the year

Aramco has been sounding out potential investors

Notably, the Journal adds that "similar previous plans have fallen through".
