Saudi Aramco has received unconditional clearance from the European Commission for its $69 billion bid for a 70 per cent stake in SABIC from the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia (PIF).
In a bourse filing, Saudi Aramco stated that with the European Commission approval, the proposed acquisition has now received unconditional clearance in all jurisdictions in which pre-notification antitrust filings are required.
The state-owned oil giant said that the closing of the deal is subject to the remaining customary closing conditions contained in the share purchase agreement.
SABIC, the Kingdom’s largest non-oil industrial company, has four main business units focusing on petrochemicals, specialities, agri-nutrients and metals.
