DUBAI (Reuters) – Saudi Aramco has attracted orders in excess of $100 billion for its debut international bond, a source familiar with the matter said.
Aramco is expected to raise more than $10 billion from the deal, which is split into six tranches with maturities ranging from three to 30 years. The bonds will be priced later on Tuesday.
Before the six-part deal was marketed on Monday, Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said initial indications of interest for the paper were over $30 billion.
